I have my fileserver set up to run a variety of tasks since it is always on. One of the things I like is the ability to stream a variety of videos to my PS3. Natively the PS3 has limited file support for streaming so transcoding using a great open source program called PS3 Media Server is necessary.
A member of the PS3 Media Server forum, Paissad put together this script below (that is no longer hosted on the forums, so I have a mirror below) that goes through the entire installation process.
The only configuration that needs to be done is going to /etc/pms-linux/PMS.conf and specifying what folders you want to share.
Here you can find the script that goes into the init.d folder to auto-start PS3 MS upon bootup if it is not placed there automatically.
I found a great guide to installing Ventrilo on Ubuntu 9.10, I followed the steps and it worked perfectly on my installation of 10.10 as well. It fills in all the gaps that official ventrilo installation guide has.

If you’re running a 64bit version of Ubuntu, you must install the 32bit libs
# sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Create a user for ventrilo to run under
# sudo useradd ventrilo
Download the linux version to your home directory (or another temp directory of your choosing), extract the files and change current directory to what we just extracted
# tar -xzf ventrilo_srv-3.0.3-Linux-i386.tar.gz
# cd ventsrv
Move the vent binaries to /usr/bin and make them executable
# sudo mv ventsrv/ventrilo_srv /usr/bin/ventrilo_srv
# sudo mv ventsrv/ventrilo_status /usr/bin/ventrilo_status
# sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/ventrilo_srv /usr/bin/ventrilo_status
Make a directory for the config files and then move them there.
Give ventrilo user access
# sudo mkdir /etc/ventrilo
# sudo mv ventrilo_srv.ini /etc/ventrilo/ventrilo_srv.ini
# sudo chown -R ventrilo:ventrilo /etc/ventrilo
Make vent start when computer boots
- Create the init.d script
- Copy the contents of this init.d script to that file
- Make it executable and add it to boot sequence
# sudo nano /etc/init.d/ventrilo
# sudo chmod 755 /etc/init.d/ventrilo
# sudo update-rc.d ventrilo defaults
Test to see if it works
# sudo /etc/init.d/ventrilo start
You should see something like the following, where 21626 will be the process ID of vent server
* Starting VOIP server ventrilo
21626: old priority 0, new priority -5
