unable to install OMV

    • OMV 4.x
    • unable to install OMV

      When I try to install omv 4.0.9 or a newer version the process stops with error "can not install system". When I take a look at the newly created partitions on the system SSD I see a rather small ext4 partition (less then 1 GB) and an enormously large swap partition.

      No matter what I try in partitioning the ssd, the system will simply not install. When I preset the partitions they get erased.

      What is the problem here?
    • It is trying to create a swap partition half the size as your system ram. So, you either need larger install media or less ram or use Debian installer.
      omv 4.1.22 arrakis | 64 bit | 4.15 proxmox kernel | omvextrasorg 4.1.15
      omv-extras.org plugins source code and issue tracker - github

      Please read this before posting a question and this and this for docker questions.
      Please don't PM for support... Too many PMs!

      if your partition is ext4 then you could reduce the size of it, simply install omv-extra then gParted or simply make a gParted USB key
      and reboot under gParted

      with gParted you will be able to reduce the size of your partition.

      another way is before the installation; when you boot on the OMV Media installation device
      you could edit the grub and remove the unattended/preseed part, by pressing TAB then lunch the installation
      this will lets you to interact with the D-I (Debian Installer) + install OMV
