Install on ARM headless?

    • Install on ARM headless?

      Hi,

      OMV is available for the Rasperry Pi, so I hope there are chances to make it run on my Netgear ReadyNAS RN104.
      It uses a Marvell ARMADA 370, which is an ARMv7, the Raspberry is a ARMv7-A, which I hope is the same?

      I currently run plain Debian armhf on it but well... it's no NAS OS.
      I've got a self built kernel 4.0.5 (from kernel.org) running, see natisbad.org/NAS3/index.html

      What I need is an initrd containing the installer so I can load it into RAM using U-Boot.
      Since the device is head-less I need access to the installer over serial line (or network).

      Any hints where to start?
      Which device and which version should I download?
      Or should Itry to build an installer image from source myself?

      thank you very much

    • You don't need an installer in the initrd. As long as you are running Wheezy, you can just add the OMV repo and apt-get install.

      Source Code

      1. echo "deb http://packages.openmediavault.org/public stoneburner main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault.list
      2. apt-get update
      3. apt-get install openmediavault-keyring postfix
      4. apt-get update
      5. apt-get install openmediavault
      6. omv-initsystem


      I do recommend installing omv-extras and the flashmemory plugin quickly though.
      omv 4.1.19 arrakis | 64 bit | 4.15 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 4.1.15
      omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github
