Reinstalling my workstation

Disclaimer

THIS IS NOT A BEST PRACTICE ON HOW TO INSTALL A LINUX BOX!
This document serves as a reminder to myself, on what needs to be done when reinstalling my workstation, and I have put it here to have it conveniently at hand. Because of this, the document may not be of any help to anybody but me. The last month I’ve had 3 failing harddrives, one new and 2 used ones, so this makes me want to document the process, at least in an overall fashion…

Installing lm-sensors

One of my boxes have had some spontaneous shutdowns lately. I thought I could take a look among the gathered data of munin, to see if I could get a hint on what was going on. Turns out I hadn’t installed and configured munin on the this machine on the last re-install. So…

After installing and configuring munin, I thought I’d install lm-sensors to get some moreĀ  mainboard temperature monitoring:

  • Installing:
sudo apt-get install lm-sensors

 

  • Configuring involves finding out suitable a driver for your mainboards chipset:
sudo sensors-detect
