Proxmox Kernel

  • For KVM, the proxmox kernel is much more thoroughly tested than the backports Debian kernel. But I think you would be ok with either.

  • 5.11 is now in the proxmox no-sub-repo.

    That was fast. I will leave both buttons in case someone still wants the 5.4 kernel. I need to change the repo though.

  • It is in the repo but does not get installed with apt dist-upgrade.

    root@pve:~# apt-cache search pve-kernel |grep 5.11

    pve-kernel-5.11.7-1-pve - The Proxmox PVE Kernel Image

    pve-kernel-5.11 - Latest Proxmox VE Kernel Image

    You can install it with apt install and works fine on my old Dell Proxmox server.

    If you make it idiot proof, somebody will build a better idiot.

  • It is in the repo but does not get installed with apt dist-upgrade

    Correct. That is because it has a different package name. The 5.11 button in omv-extras will install it even if you have the 5.4 kernel installed.

  • I agree.

    I have been absent for a while. It took me about two years to get my OMV4 solid. Then just let it do it's thing until I started to run out of storage space. I ordered a new Dell R7515 12 drive chassis. Current game plan is run ProXmoX as base OS virtualize OMV. Do I want to change to the Proxmox Kernel for my OMV install?
    Thanks
    P.S. ryecoaaron I am very fortunate to have this piece of hardware; it is a bit more than I am used to working with. I would love to get a bit of your guidance as I am sure I could miss many features of this server because of my sheer ignorance, an example: I do not understand what my HBA330 can do for me. I do not want to hijack this post, so perhaps you could PM me. Thank you.

  • Do I want to change to the Proxmox Kernel for my OMV install?

    I would. I am running the 5.11 kernel on my hardware systems. But I am not using proxmox anymore since I wrote the KVM plugin. This lets you have storage and VMs on the same box without OMV in a VM.

    Just start a new thread :) Then others can see info.

    As you can imagine having this new server with so many mysteries has been keeping me from having idle time. I do intend on starting a new thread, but something said had sort of blown my mind a bit. Are you running OMV as a bare metal hypervisor?
    I want to say I know nothing of KVM(honestly every time I've read "KVM" prior to this post my brain assumed; Keyboard Video Mouse), but I suspect my playing with ProXmoX has been somewhat of a great GUI layer for KVM — now I digress and that's another post.


    I am still pondering the concept of running OMV as a bare metal hypervisor?

    Yes. The plugin and proxmox both use kvm. I really like proxmox but it does much more than most users need and it complicates using the same server for storage.

    It isn't much different than proxmox. Proxmox is Debian userland with Ubuntu kernel. OMV is Debian userland with the ability to use the Ubuntu kernel. They both can use kvm since it is builtin to the kernel. Really not much different than using Virtualbox on OMV.

  • Proxmox is better in sense of easier clustering and some things that are beyond the scope of SMB.

    I haven't tested kvm plugin extensively, but as i can see ryan did a really good job here. Only thing missing is backup/recovery extensive procedure. Maybe binding it with proxmox backup server for easier procedure.

  • as i can see ryan did a really good job here

    Ryan? lol


    Only thing missing is backup/recovery extensive procedure.

    I'm working on that. If you must have a backup, you can always shutdown the VM, copy the virtual disk file(s), and start it back up.


    Maybe binding it with proxmox backup server for easier procedure.

    Even though they are both kvm, Proxmox libs and libvirt don't work together.

  • This is not really a proxmox question. The proxmox kernel works well on buster and I want to try it on another project. Just searching I can't find a good tutorial. Maybe you could point me to one.


    I used wget and dpkg to install the 5.11 kernel and kernel helper. I am guessing I might need more packages.


    I am trying to do this to Untangle firewall. They do tweak their kernel. The web ui doesn't work. The network threw put went up a fair bit but that may be because some of the features are not running.


    Have not trouble shot much. Just guessing I need more packages.


    Thanks
