I've recently purchased a HP Microserver G8 G16010T with the Intel Celeron processor. Have installed 2 x 2TB seagate NAS drives and 4Gb RAM. I'm primarily looking to get a LAMP setup going. Would really appreciate responses to these questions as I'm feeling my way here:
- HP list as a certified OS: Ubuntu Server 12.04, and point to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/precise/ubuntu-12.04.2-server-amd64.iso - just want to be sure though that this is the correct version for the G1610T (i.e. not just the G2020)?
- I've read many of the HP forum entries on the fan noise on the HP MS G8 - and appear to be linked to either iLo or the B120i Smart Array controller - but understand that these features aren't supported by Ubunutu Server? Is that correct or are their successful work-arounds?
- I want to run Ubuntu Server on a microSD - booting a SANDISK 32GB extreme SD card in the internal SD slot (i.e. not one of the hard drives) - has anybody had any experience setting this up and any hints/tips (or detailed instructions:))?
Thanks in advance.
