Build a Media/File Server for Free - Part 1

There are a lot of old computers out there doing jack shit and anything newer then a Pentium 4 can make a great media and/or file server.

The video goes over sourcing, building and preparing Debian for installation.

The next part will go over installing Debian, configuring the software and the benchmark.

Feel free to rip into the video, any feedback is appreciated.


For the music, make sure you try volume down a little since your mic quietly picks up your commentary. If you had like a powered-mic, then it wouldn’t matter.

Otherwise, great start there.
