Peppermint OS and Intel Nuc
« on: August 15, 2014, 10:33:50 am »
I'm curious if anyone has installed PeppermintOS on an Intel Nuc.  I'm thinking about running a 'headless' plex server (currently I'm using Peppermint and Plex on an old laptop).  I'm just not sure how well the OS runs on a Nuc or if there are any issues.

I'd would appreciate any thoughts.

Thanks!

Can't see why it wouldn't, they're built around x86 architecture CPU's .. why not try booting a LiveUSB on your NUC and see if any hardware doesn't work ?

Then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -F
so we can see the hardware, and see if any solutions exist for anything that doesn't work "out-of-the-box".



This:

seems to suggest Linux is supported

and if they'll run Ubuntu 14.04 .. they'll run Peppermint 5

Thanks!  I'll will post back after I try this.  I am actually waiting for it to be delivered (Monday).  I have never run anything 'headless' before and I'm hoping that it will work pretty easily.

I tried a Intel NUC. Allthough everything seems to install just fine, after installation the machine does not boot.

So I searched a little bit and found this topic. Perhaps it is a bit old, but I want to try anyway. Hence, the output from
Code: [Select]
inxi -F
is

It seems I figured it out myself ... according to this page the Intel NUC DN2820FYK  needs a BIOS update before it can install an "independent" OS.

Quote
Installing OpenElec or Ubuntu on Intel® NUC Kit DN2820FYKH or DE3815TYKHE
The operating system installation document includes specific changes needed in the BIOS before installing Linux* on these NUCs.

After the BIOS update Peppermint installed fine, allthough I suspect it needs a graphics update as well.

Thank you for your help and attention.

With kind regards,
