  • I have alleady used this guaid. Problem still remains. I can not find any working how-to install guaid.

    Would you be so kind to link me any?

    Is there any work-around to over skip this php dependency issue.

    I 've red some posts concerning the same issue but there is no solusion.


    Is anybody uble to see and install this packet. In wchich repo should it be?

  • Your reference to Debian 11 concerns me. Debian 11 is the foundation for OMV6, which is still in the alpha/testing phase. Unless you intend to be testing, you need to follow a guide that begins with Debian 10 without a desktop.


    What kind of computer are you trying to install on?

  • Maybe thats the clue.

    I didnt know that Latest OMV from repo ( OMV5) dont support Debian 11

    I have just installed latest Debian-5.13.6-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2

    booting from usb pendrive in Zyxel NSA310 hardware

    I intended to get stabile version of OMV


    root@debian:~# root@debian:~# cat /etc/*-release

    PRETTY_NAME="Debian GNU/Linux 11 (bullseye)"

    NAME="Debian GNU/Linux"

    VERSION_ID="11"

    VERSION="11 (bullseye)"

    VERSION_CODENAME=bullseye



    What you now recomend to me?

    Downgrade to debian 10 means install and confiure debian from the begining

    Or is maybe another easier way to install on Debian 11 from repo OMV6 ?


    Thank You for you help

  • You can install OMV 6, just understand it is unlikely to be stable for at least a couple of months. There's also several plugins that have not been ported to OMV 6 yet.. so the potential to have problems is there. If you're not comfortable trouble shooting, then I would do exactly what Agricola said. Install Debian 10, then put OMV 5.0 on top of it using the official instructions.


    Honestly though, looking at the specs on that, w/ 235mb of RAM.. You're going to have a helluva time to get OMV to run on that very well. Just given that, I'd probably ditch this project and find something else to put OMV on.

    Air Conditioners are a lot like PC's... They work great until you open Windows.


  • Its clear to . Alpha testing its rather not for me.

    I just want to get my old hardware to work. There is bootloader dedicated for debian only.

    I didnt fnd any lighter alternative for OMV so wanted to test how it works.

    Ok. I will downdrade to Debian10 and try install OMV5 from repo

    Thaks for You help.
