I bought one of the Dell SC420 £99 servers and use it as a Myth backend.
Well, one itch for me was that it had a BIOS feature to automatically
wakeup or power-on but it wasn't supported by the usual tools
(nvram-wakeup). (notice lots of Google dust being sprinkled here :) )
Well, as it happens some of the Dell guys were talking on lkml about
their work on a bios control library and I was able (with their help) to
hack up a wakeup binary called like this to wakeup at 09:04am :
wakeupCtlS --hour 9 --minute 04 --everyday
Download and 'make minimal' and you'll end up with a binary:
I haven't actually hacked it into Myth yet 'cos I need to investigate
WOL from a frontend first...
HTH some people :)
