    • Cannot install openmediavault on raspian 9

      Hi,

      thank you for reading my post. I am new to this forum and I am new to openmediavault.

      I am trying to install openmediavault on my
      raspberry pi 1 rev b. I installed
      Raspian 9 Stretch.

      When attempting to install php-apc I saw the following:
      root@raspcloud:~# apt-get install php-apc openmediavault -y --force-yes
      Reading package lists... Done
      Building dependency tree
      Reading state information... Done
      Package php-apc is not available, but is referred to by another package.
      This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
      is only available from another source


      Instead I ran this:
      root@raspcloud:~# apt-get install php-pear php-dev php-json libpcre3-dev php-apcu

      But when I then attempted to install openmediavault I got this:
      root@raspcloud:~# apt-get install openmediavault -y --force-yes
      Reading package lists... Done
      Building dependency tree
      Reading state information... Done
      Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
      requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
      distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
      or been moved out of Incoming.
      The following information may help to resolve the situation:

      The following packages have unmet dependencies:
      openmediavault : Depends: php5-fpm but it is not installable
      Depends: php5-cgi but it is not installable
      Depends: php5-cli (>= 5.6) but it is not installable
      Depends: php5-pam but it is not going to be installed
      E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.


      How can i overcome this dependency? Should I look for a complete .img file for my pi that has openmediavault already installed?


      Thanks in advance,
    • You have a few problems:
      1. OMV 3.x and 4.x do not work on an RPi1
      2. OMV 2.x and 3.x do not work on Raspbian 9 (Debian 9) Stretch
      3. I deleted the last image of OMV 2.x that worked on an RPi1 because the RPi1 is a waste of time.
      So, I would look at getting a newer board that has a supported image available on sourceforge - sourceforge.net/projects/openm…s/Other%20armhf%20images/

    • Sorry for posting this twice. I received an error message the first time and assumed the post was gone.
      Thank you for your helpful reply, ryecoaaron.
      I am actually not sure which version of OMV I attempted to install. The apt-get did not specify. I assume it defaults to the latest version.
    • The version is unimportant since you have Debian 9 installed and that will never work on the RPi1.

      Will it run on a zero? A pi 3 seems a little wasteful for a device that will end up in a wiring closet.
      An RPi Zero is the same cpu as the RPi1. So, same problem. Even an RPi3 is not a good NAS. Not sure what you are trying to do here.

    • I am trying to find a good use for my pi. I am currently using it as an ssh/sftp file server on my lan. Works fine but I wanted to see if I couldn't get OMV, opencloud or something similar running on it. Speed is not a big concern and it would never have more than one client connected to it.
    • OMV 3 under Raspbian Jessie works for fine for the purposes you're describing here as an FTP server.

      You can donwload its image file and flash it into SD card.

      In my case also get the PlexMediaServer running fine. I have not tried the installation of OpenCloud for OMV yet, however skimming through the documentation, it ought to be independent of the version of OMV.

    • @ryecoaaron Hi I'm using a raspberry pi 3 B+ with raspbian 9 trying to do the same thing that @PiedPiper described. What do I do after:
