    I have just wasted several hours of my life trying to install OMV from a USB to a USB.

    The symptom: every time the install stage got to creating the partition/filesystem, it would error out saying it couldn't create it. Tried different USB sticks. Was able to install from a USB stick to an actual USB HD, but never to another USB stick.

    Was using 3.0.94. Finally as a last resort, I tried 3.0.86 and the install worked perfectly.

    My conclusion? Something not right about 3.0.94. Don't know if it's a problem with the installer, or my old hardware, but it definitely doesn't work with my setup (which has been running the latest version of OMV for several years). I've always upgraded OMV through the web interface until recently when my USB stick shot craps and I had to reinstall OMV.

    Hey OMV folks, I've been wanting to start keeping track of my recipes, and I've found some decent looking open source programs, but I would really like to have a central database so I can access all my recipes from any device I choose.

    Is there something in OMV or a plugin that would be well suited to this task?

    Otherwise, is there enough interest for someone to implement this for us?

    Beyond that, with my minimal programming knowledge would it be possible to get a web based recipe manager up and running on my NAS?

    Some promising prospects seem to be:
    -PHPRecipBook, a Apache and PHP based system.
    -OpenEats, a python and django based program.

    This is new ground to me, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    The mySQL bug prevents me right now from upgrading to a fresh OMV4. I prefer a fresh setup. I tried a upgrade from a running OMV3 to OMV4 with MySQL etc. running and it worked as well.
