It's Not Magic, It's Work!

23 Mar 2008


Today I wiped my new box and started the procedure to install it to replace my old home server. The Debian "Lenny" β DVD I downloaded and burnt to DVD didn't work, it got stuck in the partitioning stage, so I had to give up on that and fall back to an older "Etch" DVD. The "Etch" disk worked okay and once I'd got the basics on, I did a quick aptitude dist-upgrade and Lenny was running okay.

For most of the afternoon I've been copying files from my desktop system onto the new server and files from the old server to the new one. NFS over a 1Gig network just isn't fast enough anymore, how people manage with WiFi I'll never know...

Tomorrow I'll get most of the key services running and by the time the we have to move house I'll have decommissioned and given away my old home server.
