      I must not fear.
      Fear is the mind-killer.
      Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
      I will face my fear.
      I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
      And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
      Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
      Only I will remain.

      @ryecoaaron could it be due to the fact that is is powered only by the odroid and not by an external power supply? Moreover the Repositeries tab is not there, how can i add newer plugins? Monitoring tab is completely blank for me... suggestions?

      Maybe. Repo tab is missing? Can you post a screenshot?

    • If you are running OMV 3, that distro is fine. Did you try clearing your browser cache?

      If you read this thread, you would have known about apt-get -f install and you would have got the omv-extras for OMV 3.x which is newer than 2.13.1. My sig also says what the newest version is.

    • Great to see omv 3.0 coming, but...

      Hi, it's great to see your progress on omv 3.0 and am eagerly waiting for the stable release. Your description to get it working on a Cubox-i is very helpful and it's running flawlessly unless I'm mounting my SATA-Array via the SATA ports and trying to reboot.
      After reboot, system goes to "emergency mode" which can be ignored by pressing CTRL+D. Then the cubox is not reachable in the network and the connection on eth0 has to be repaired trough omv-firstaid -> Configure network interface.
      On journalctl there are several fsck errors concerning the filesystem of the newly created software RAID. That's a bit curious, has anyone else seen this behavior before?

      Edit:
      Got it running with rebuilding the RAID after a clean install.

    • Well this is getting funny.

      I have an Odroid XU4 and I am trying to install a fresh OMV3 on a Debian Jessi distro.

      I followed the one that @itsmaxxdd linked few post above and I have serious troubles, following exactly the instructions.

      I am going to try another distro, but I am starting to feel badly.

      Regards.

      EDIT:

      I will explain my steps so mey help for anyone else:


      I used the following jessie image (the server one):
      armbian.com/odroid-xu4/

      Then I followed the instructions from votdev, the first "apt-get update" produces the following error in my Odroid XU4 (as far as I have readed in the guides it should be OK):

      Source Code

      1. W: GPG error: http://packages.openmediavault.org erasmus InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 7E7A6C592EF35D13

      The command "apt-get openmediavault-keyring" gives a warning and I install it anyway. No problem here.

      Finally I install openmediavault with all the options.

      Here I can see many errors, and at the end, omv-initsystem gives me this error:


      root@odroidxu4:~# omv-initsystem
      ln: failed to create hard link '/boot/initrd.img-3.10.103-odroidxu4.dpkg-bak' => '/boot/initrd.img-3.10.103-odroidxu4': Operation not permitted

      So I am stucked and have no idea how to go ahead.

      I would not like to go back to OM2.

      So I would appreciate any help.

      Regards.
