Make a server at home on a Beaglebone Black and Fedora


The Beaglebone Black is a small, low cost, ARMv7 machine that is capable of running Fedora proper. It is a open-source hardware single-board computer similar in concept to the popular Raspberry PI, but has a faster processor, all for around $45.

In a recent blog post, Nikos Roussos walks you through how to get the ARM version of Fedora up and running on a Beaglebone Black.

    Hi, nice article.

    In your home server which setup you use for periodic backups?

    I use two USB HDDs connected to a switchable hub. To one of the HDDs I rsync my home PC’s every night. The other HDD is used to backup the first disk, which is performed ever two days.

    I used the switchable hub ( ) because the HDDs are only used when the backups are occurring and I wanted them to be “really” Off when they are not being used. I feel uncomfortable in having those mechanical HDDs powered and spinning for most of the day in spite of not being used…

    Do you use a similar solution?
