First off I’d like to say that rockstor and its admin/devs are top notch. Anytime I’ve had a problem its been solved with a quick response. Couldn’t ask for more from the rockstor team. Thank you
I’ve had my machine up and running for probably going on a year and its been pretty awesome. I’ve got some rockons going, one of them being plex which is great. Now, my understanding is that plex can utilize a graphics card for hardware transcoding so I had an extra one laying around (GTX1060) and I threw it in the machine. Started poking around in few forums on how to install drivers but until now I have not gone through with the driver installation other than installing "el repo’ and NVidia detect. Did some more reading and came across some that where reporting that their machine wouldn’t boot up after the gpu driver update, I don’t want to go that route so now I’m here. I know that rockstor’s underlying os is centos so I took that approach when attempting to install the drivers. Just haven’t gone through with the full installation. My question now is, is it worth it to install the GPU and drivers on my rockstor machine for hardware acceleration in plex? If it is what would be the appropriate steps to get the drivers up and running?
Ive recently upgraded my mobo and cpu from an old phenom setup to an I5 8400 for quicksync capabilities. From what ive gathered in this post https://github.com/rockstor/rockstor-doc/issues/214 is that my best bet for Intel QS is to wait for the openSUSE update?
