The artwork has sure changed over the years, always rock solid under the hood though.

When was the official public release date for a VSIDO installable iso? As I recall, you were making the HowTo and scripts available on the #! forum (Ubuntu as well?).

It had been out almost a year as a script based installation. Then Jedi put the official word out on Jan 17 2013 (http://nixnut.com/?p=838#.WGnFflQrLmE)

And those were my exact words:

Quote
Release the Kraken!

The exact words used today by the creator of VSIDO, Terry Ganus aka VastOne, to let the world know that the final testing, and developing, phase was through and the first official release of VSIDO Linux was available to all!

A little teaser:

Machine:   Device: desktop Mobo: EVGA model: 141-BL-E757 v: Tylersburg

CPU:       Quad core Intel Xeon X5550 (-HT-MCP-) cache: 8192 KB
               clock speeds: max: 2793 MHz

RAM:       1190MiB / 12011MiB (trichannel mind you)

tl;dr :

My old system went tits up, so for the last couple of months i've been gathering parts. A friend was so kind and donate a Xeon CPU, and after that it was game time!
Picked up a nice eVGA X58 3way sli board for $30, which is stupidly cheap.

Anyway, i'll post pictures and screenshots later!

As always, have a fantastic day!

Thanks guys :)


I do miss my i5 system, but this Xeon will do :)


System as seen :
- Xeon X5550 (4c/8t, 2.67Ghz)
- 12gb DDR3/1600
- 256Gb SSD + 320Gb mechanical (scrap disk for Blender and etc + holds my 2 swap partitions)
- eVGA nv 750ti


Total cost for this (so far):
$30 for the X58 mainboard
$35 for the case
$70 for the 2 x 32" (obviously wallmounted)


What missing/on its way is:
- A Coolermaster 212 Evo (Got a 1155 heatsink ghettorigged with zip ties atm)
- More ram, got 6x2Gb installed.
- A USB3 i/o card.
- A SATA6 controller card (pcie).
- 2 graphicscard of some sort (some 770s or 2 Quadro cards)
- A better PSU (I admit the "spaghetti" doesn't look pretty)

 @dizzie: that's an amazing rig. Now you have to smoke it! I miss Xeons a bit, but since I don't (professionally) mix audio anymore. There's no need for them. Anyways my AMD Fx8350 serves me really well. I've never managed to stress it enough and put it down on its knees. I have way more power than what I need. The real bottleneck are the HDs. Slowly moving to all SSD. That's where the performance boost relies as of today.

- A better PSU (I admit the "spaghetti" doesn't look pretty)

Ah, yes, modular PSUs! I failed on that too. I thought it was modular one when I bought mine. But discovered it wasn't when unpacking it. Now one of the side panels barely closes. Like an overdone suitcase. You need to push it really hard and fight a bit to lock it in position. Those damned wires... I'll need to replace it some of these days, but to say the truth  it performs wonders and it's totally silent. It's just the massive spaghetti leftovers...  ::)


BTW, Phenoms were some of the best bang for the buck CPUs AMD ever made.

Post by: jedi on January 21, 2017, 01:53:09 AM
Nope, haven't done anymore with it yet.  Planning on it tomorrow.  Got it working by using a reFind boot USB stick.  Boots in fine, I did update the Kernel via smxi.  Finally saw what you guys did with the hexchat icon.  Update of course fixed this.  I assume I'll just be able to install/reinstall grub-efi-amd64.  I hope anyway!

Edit 24 hours later:
So I did re-install grub-efi.  So that took care of everything!  For the life of me, I can't think of a good way to do a "How To" on this.  There is already a great one on the fsarchiver subject here on the forum.  That is all I did.  I did create a 'reFind' USB bootable UBS stick while in Windows 10.  Booting using that stick, (of course after restoring my fsa archive back-ups) it saw the restored partition, booted to it, and voila...

Indeed it does!  Totally UEFI VSIDO in that scrot!  Just used the 'reFind' boot manager to boot the newly restored partition and then re-installed grub-efi!  All done and working great, including all updates done.

BTW, who needs Manjaro?
