As above, they all get stuck on:
'waiting until /dev is fully populated'
A couple of lines above is something about line 71: stop_network: not found
But I think it's to do with the realtek network adaptor on the board (H55N-USB3) which isn't overly supported (had trouble getting freenas to work with it)
While I'm at it might aswell ask, what distro would you guys recommend for a media server/LAN pc?
(most of the time tis basically a file server, bu I also take it to LANs since it's small)
Currently it runs freenas and xp, but I want to only have a single OS, since I want all my stuff available to share at LANs
Been looking at Linuxmint debian, have fedora on my laptop, and am setting up an ubuntu server or two over the summer, so would like something new
