I've bough a Raspberri Pi, and recently got around to install an OS on it (Didn't have a card reader).
I'm not sure what to do with it, but I'm thinking about using it as a NAS. I got a lot of movies and stuff like that, and I would really like to be able to access it easily from different computers.
Would NAS be the best way to go ? How fast is it, and would it be possible to stream HD movies, so I can watch it directly from the Raspberry ? I would also like to know if its possible to access it outside my local network.
Most of the questions I would be able to answer myself, by installing the right software and testing it myself. My main problem, and the reason I write this topic is that I've had some problems with samba, and I'm not sure what the problem is.
I'm new to Linux, so its kinda hard to troubleshoot.
I followed a guide I found, and didn't seem to mess any of the steps up, but I wasn't able to connect to it from my mac, so something must have gone wrong somewhere. I wanted to follow another guide, because the it seemed way better and helpful, but I got into problems because my hdd already was mounted and stuff from my previous attempt.
Is it possible to reset whatever I did to my hdd, so I can mindlessly follow another guide, and how do I restore the samba changes I made ?
Can you recommend any guides for a linux noob ?
Let me know if you need more info. Its been like a week since my last attempt, so I don't remember all the details.
Thanks for your time
