OK, now that we are on this media sharing topic, if I buy a DLNA certified Media Player, do I need to install some DLNA server on this Pogo or can DLNA devices by definition access network shares (like our ARM+Samba combination here)?
Well, yes and no.
This server is not DLNA server,not even close, it is a file server.
There is something called miniDLNA, it shoud work if you implement it properly.
However ,when hdds belong to Plex, which IS DLNA server among other things,files on those drives will be recognized by the Plex client.
My Sharp is a smart TV w/DLNA.It wants to play MP4s but ignores MKVs.

PS My Pogo server is still down, many thanks, cracajack

I neither maintain Arch Linux packages nor condone the dissemination of bad packages. If I were you I would reset the pogo environment and re-install arch. You should also set up netconsole so you can tell what is broken.

PS cracarjax, you will burn in hell I hope.

Freaking stupid post farked up my perfect server.

Now I cannot reinstall, because there is something wrong with the distro.
Thanks, I appreciate that. You CAN reinstall because the install instructions have you untar a rather old working copy of arch linux to your device. Simply do not run a full system update via pacman and you will be fine.

In case anyone is interested in Samba on this, I just tested it out and I'm saturating my network bandwidth with the file xfer speed from my external drive through the pogoplug at ~80Mbps.

Looking at this [archlinuxarm.org], the date of the distro is dated 1/16/2013. I last rebuilt on 1/13 and it still worked at that time.

Well, somehow I managed to rebuild this morning, everything works as it should.

One lesson I have learned, blind updates from the latest repositories are wrong.

Control ArchLinux Pogo from any browser:

Install and configure Webmin for managing the device using any web browser
$ pacman -S webmin perl-net-ssleay
$ nano /etc/webmin/miniserv.conf
- In "ALLOW" add "192.168.x.0" to grant access to only local IP addresses, replace "x" w/your actual number, aka 192.168.1.0
-------------------------------------------------------------
## $ nano /etc/rc.conf
## - Add "webmin" to DAEMONS

-------------------------------------------------------------
Don't do it!

- From your web browser go to: "https://IP_address:10000"
OK, if you want webmin, don't bother w/rc.conf.
instead do just that:
systemctl enable webmin.service
systemctl start webmin.service

OK, thanks. but I am not sure when do we need transcoding.
In my case I am going/wishing to install PMS on this device so that I can consume it from the Plex App on my Roku, not sure if this needs "transcoding".
Like I said before, if I am going to need a PC for this "transcoding" anyway, I'll just connect all these HDDs to that PC which will be running PMS and will just skip Pogo altogether Smilie.

I am still not clear why would we need transcoding power if the file is already in the Roku-compatible format...!
Hey have you gotten automount of your usb drives to work yet? If so which instructions did you follow.

Install this package to enable automount:
Code:
pacman -S udev-automount
Then e2label command to label the drive device (i.e. #> e2label /dev/sdb1 usbdrive1) and it should automount the drive to /media/usbdrive1

See here [archlinuxarm.org] for more info.

As I explained in the Wiki
For auto-mounting these devices each time after Pogo is rebooted, run below commands
nano /etc/fstab
Then paste this line ->
UUID="ABCD" /mnt/Songs ntfs defaults 0 0 # Put your device's UUID instead of ABCD. My HDDs are ntfs type. Put your own type if different. Add one line for each device with it's UUID and type (e.g. ntfs). If you don't know the UUID, run this command blkid -o list -c /dev/null
Now just save this file and exit.

Ok and if i have both samba and nfs installed, how does the system differentiate which protocol to use to mount?I want to experiment mounting with samba and nfs separately and see what works better/faster/easier for me.

I am in the processing of installing archlinux.

I did cd /tmp

pogoplug:/tmp$ wget http://jeff.doozan.com/debian/ubo...ot_mtd0.sh

Giving me an error: wget: command not found

How to fix this?

Automount work great for ext3, but for my ntfs drive, the mount point shows up blank. I end up having to manually mount the ntfs. Any tips to automount ntfs drives?

samba mount:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index....e_mounting

nfs mount:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index....from_Linux

they are two different protocols going through different ports with different server software. The system doesn't do anything to differentiate because the connection is handled by different software (samba and nfs-server).

One thing in common between samba and nfs is that both are client-server communication models so you will need to know (or let us know) which OS you want to use for the client to access files on the server (pogo+arch) or specify the OS in your google search.
