Ubuntu 7.04 - Server Edition installed
I'm using a computer with a 40 GB hard drive and 512 MB of RAM. So ...
#1 - primary - 1.2 GB - swap - swap
#3 - primary - 22.3 GB - ext3 - /home
#5 - logical - 15.0 GB - ext3 - /
#6 - logical - 1.5 GB - fat32 - /mnt/shared
This was based upon my previous install, where I had the following:
/ = 6.7 GB, 59% was used
/home = 9.3 GB, 5% used
(swap was 1.2 GB?)
The other 20 GB was the Windows XP installation.
Getting it partitioned just right took a bit of time ...
Once the server installation was done, I decided to install ubuntu-desktop (yikes, that was almost an hour). What I should have done was install Lynx (see a little further below) so I could have at least browsed a bit while I was waiting ... but I had my Windows machine up, so I was able to get some work done while I was waiting.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
Once that finally stopped, a reboot.
Unfortunately, now the GUI is starting automatically. After some research online ...
sudo apt-get sysv-rc-conf
I unchecked the level 2 boxes for bluetooth and gdm.
Now you'll have to login, but AMP will automatically be started (tested by checking another machine on my network).
sudo apt-get install lynx
sudo gdm start
... or ...
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start
And if you want to stop gdm (Ubuntu's default GUI) use this at a terminal:
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
If you do sudo gdm stop, then it keeps trying to restart, and it's dang annoying … (because it never stops in the first place)
Another login required ...
Then it's uninstalling the Games and installing gkrellm.
If I do this again, I'll definitely need to take a look at the minimal version of ubuntu-desktop ...
