Install Plex Media Server on Raspberry Pi 2. The awesome Plex Media Server can now finally be installed on the Raspberry Pi 2 without a chroot.

Install Plex Media Server on Raspberry Pi 2

The chroot method broke when using upstart scripts and had metadata issues, those are no longer a problem! Using a Synology package compiled for an ARMv7 processor we can use it on the Pi 2 with a bit of extra work. This will unfortunately not work on the B+ or earlier models as they use an ARMv6 processor. Many thanks to uglymagoo from the Plex forum who identified the package that could be used without a chroot on the Raspberry Pi 2. I used a minimal Raspbian distribution Minibian for this guide, when you are done Plex will also autostart on boot. March 2016 Update: Jessie Image posted compatible with Raspberry Pi 2 and Pi 3 Previous Update: Method 3 for early Plex releases now working with Jessie Image Updated August 2015 to version 6 with Minibian Jessie with Kernel 4.1 and Plex 0.9.12.8 (if you experience issues use this image use the installer) Installation Checklist Generate Locales wget.

How to Turn a Raspberry Pi into a Low-Power Network Storage Device. Mix together one Raspberry Pi and a sprinkle of cheap external hard drives and you have the recipe for an ultra-low-power and always-on network storage device.

How to Turn a Raspberry Pi into a Low-Power Network Storage Device

Read on as we show you how to set up your own Pi-based NAS. Why Do I Want to Do This? The benefit of having an always-on network storage device is that it’s extremely convenient to have your data (or backup destination) always accessible to the computers both inside and outside your network. The downside, in most instances, is that you’re consuming a fair amount of power for the convenience.

Our office server, for example, runs 24/7 and consumes almost $200 worth of power a year. We’ll be the first to grant you that a full fledged server is going to have more storage space and the capability to do more work (such as transcoding a multi-terabyte video collection in a reasonable span of time). What Do I Need? In addition to the gear you’ll need from the Getting Started with Raspberry Pi tutorial, you’ll only the following hardware:

How to install Linux Mint via USB - Linux Mint Community

Starting with the release of Linux Mint 12 KDE RC, Linux Mint switched to Hybrid ISO images. Previous releases such as Linux Mint 9, 10, 11, or even the main edition of Linux Mint 12 are not covered by this tutorial. Traditionally, tools such as 'Startup Disk Creator' or 'UNetbootin' were needed to install Linux Mint via USB. With hybrid images, you can simply write the content of the ISO and make a bootable USB stick which can install Linux Mint by using the 'dd' command.

Pros: The resulting USB stick will act exactly like a liveCD/DVD. Cons: This method deletes all the data present on the USB drive The USB stick isn't persistent (though you can still use Unetbootin to do this). Using mintStick mintStick is installed by default in Linux Mint. Launch "USB Image Writer" from the menu, select your ISO image and your USB device and press "Write to device".
