Upgrading from OMV 3 to 4 i386 version?

  • I downloaded openmediavault_3.0.36-i386.iso burned it to a CD-R and that installed without a problem on an HP T5745 thin client with 4 gig RAM, a 16 gig SSD plugged into its SATA port, and the PCIe expansion chassis with a Dynex eSATA card.


    Then I went looking for how to get it upgraded to OMV 4. Ran into some issues with repositories that have gone 404 and eventually managed to blow things up to where OMV is borked.

    For example

    Err:13 http://httpredir.debian.org/debian jessie-backports/main i386 Packages

    and

    Failed to fetch http://httpredir.debian.org/de…main/binary-i386/Packages


    Got similar errors trying to do omv-release-upgrade It recognizes I'm wanting to upgrade from 3 to 4 but it's not finding something it needs to do it.


    Starting over from scratch is not a problem. I don't have my external storage put together yet. I'm just wanting to get to a clean and functioning install of the latest 32 bit OMV so I can pull the SSD and make a backup image.


    Can someone tell me, in exact detail, for a person whose knowledge of Linux extends mainly to knowing it exists and that its creator calls it "leenix" (I do have 37 years experience with computers, DOS since 2.1, Windows since 3.0, Macintosh almost as long) step by step, leaving out nothing, assuming knowledge of nothing, how to get a 32 bit OMV 3 install using that ISO upgraded to OMV 4?

  • Installing OMV5 on Raspberry PI's, Armbian SBC's, & i386 32-bit platforms


    You can use the same described process for OMV4 and OMV5.


    If you start with Debian Stretch you will end up with OMV4.

    If you use Debian Buster it will be OMV5.

  • Thanks. Already had the Debian 10 ISO downloaded.


    I searched for hours looking to see if there was a 32 bit release of OMV5 and kept coming up with nada, or search engines "helpfully" suggesting I really absolutely must have meant OMV3 or OMV4. That, and the lack of anyone making an OMV4 i386 install ISO is why I was attempting the 3 to 4 update.

    OMV doesn't have an arch or 32/64 bit release. I works on all supported architectures including armhf,arm64,i386,amd64. The inst all ISO is only released for AMD64 but as macom said, installing on Debian is correct route.

  • I use a different process than described in the Guide.

    • create a user
    • create a share with default settings
    • give r/w privileges to the user on the share
    • add the share to SMB with default settings
    • make sure the Workgroup name is the same as on my Windows machine
    • enable SMB
    • login to the share from Windows using the user and the password
