Pinned Call for testers: OMV4 for ARM boards

    • Yes, I did.

      After the upgrade I'm on kernel 4.14.98-v7+, but still no success.

      1. Welcome to ARMBIAN 5.46 experimental Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 4.14.98-v7+
      2. System load: 0.50 0.15 0.05 Up time: 0 min
      3. Memory usage: 6 % of 976MB IP: 192.168.2.10
      4. CPU temp: 61°C
      5. Usage of /: 51% of 2.6G
      6. You have new mail.

      And the networks must be in range, since the pi is ~1m far from my router (as it is wired at the moment).

      Edit: I've tried installing directly on the mentioned 32GB Sandisk Class10/A1 and results are exactly same. Still no wifi + kernel 4.14.34-v7+ (after letting it "finish installation" for 3 hours).
      It only goes higher after apt upgrade. But letting it finish installation always ends on 4.14.34-v7+.

      I started to create OMV4 images for ARM boards. After checking download statistics I will only care about boards for which images were downloaded at least 30 times a month.

      The goal ist the same as with the OMV 3 approach from last year: provide settings that allow for maximum performance with minimum consumption at the same time, flashmemory plugin enabled to reduce wear on SD cards, no monitoring activated by intention for the same reason.

      The whole process is scripted as usual so it's rather boring to go through this. Also I gave away or sold most of the boards I owned last year so I won't be able to test through a lot of boards.

      At this URL kaiser-edv.de/tmp/jCslC8/ OMV4 images have been uploaded, most probably followed by one for Raspberries soon (due to closed source nature of the RPi stuff requiring maximum efforts). For each image/board at least one volunteer is needed booting the image, doing some basic tests, logging in via SSH and providing generic feedback and 'armbianmonitor -u' output (see below for example URLs).

      The below test results will be updated over time:

      • Allwinner A20 family: Successfully tested Cubietruck (myself), Banana Pi (frankm)
      • Allwinner H3 family: Successfully tested Orange PI PC Plus (myself)
      • Allwinner H5 family: Successfully tested OPi Zero Plus (by guidol). Known issue: cpufreq not working, CPU cores limited to 816 MHz, shouldn't affect NAS performance that much and will be fixed by apt update in a few weeks/months
      • ODROID-C2: Successfully tested (by @ryecoaaron)
      • ODROID-XU4/HC1/HC2: Successfully tested (by @vinntec)
      • Pine64: Successfully tested (by [ade]). Known issue: cpufreq and thermal readouts not working, CPU cores limited to 816 MHz, shouldn't affect NAS performance that much and will be fixed by apt update in a few weeks/months
      • Raspberry Pi: Successfully tested RPi 2 (myself), RPi 3 (@'jata1')

      I can confirm Allwinner H3 family: Successfully tested Orange PI PC Plus works on the standard Orange Pi PC
      Currently running and wiping and rebuilding a 1TB laptop harddrive connected thru USB
      Seems to be working smoothly and stable at this time
    • Help, in this latest build the OMV-extras PLEX repository settings are blank.

      I've picked up a 2GB RPi 4, and would like to use it for a PLEX music server for a family friend but I've just recently been notified the latest PLEX release will be needed to access premium metadata:

      "Starting July 1, Plex Media Server version 1.15.8 or higher will be required to continue to add music to Premium music libraries."

      I'm a bit of a noob but I had previously gotten OMV+PLEX up and running on the RPi3.

      You might need to manually install the OMV-Extras package
      omv-extras.org/joomla/index.php/guides


      Source Code

      1. Installation
      2. From OMV web interface (preferred method)
      3. Download the plugin to enable this repository here:
      4. For OMV 2.x (stoneburner) - openmediavault-omvextrasorg_latest_all.deb
      5. For OMV 3.x (erasmus) - openmediavault-omvextrasorg_latest_all3.deb
      6. For OMV 4.x (arrakis) - openmediavault-omvextrasorg_latest_all4.deb
      7. Go to the plugin tab in OMV's web interface.
      8. Upload the file.
      9. Select the newly uploaded plugin openmediavault-omvextrasorg
      10. Click on Install. Refresh page.
      11. Go to the plugin tab and click Check.
      12. OR
      13. From command line as root
      14. wget -O - http://omv-extras.org/install | bash

      That should turn on the OMV-Extra deal to install plexmediaserver
