    Well what a day i did get it to work with Debian first but then broke it again. I must have done something out of order cause after a reboot ip changed to 172.17.something docker.So i started over and was determined to get it working using the install DVD and my sd card which i had in a usb micro sd card reader. But i could never get it to use the full capacity of the card, it always made a 3gb partition for the system boot drive and a 12gb swap. I was able to delete the swap and extend the system boot drive to full size of card using cfdisk in a terminal but it still showed as a 3gb partition when i put back into the machine i want to use. This is the strangest i think I've ever seen. So after doing this all day long i finally gave up and just used a spinning harddrive as a boot drive. Just hated to waste my smallest 300gb drive for a system that only needs 8-16gb to run. I tried multiple thumb drives and sd cards all to no avail.

    this is what the install did on my thumbdrive, i was using a dvd and and only had my thumbdrive plugged in. when i put a harddrive in during install and still pick the thumbdrive for place to install it fails making the partition on thumbdrive every time. so i just tried with only thumb plugged in and i get what you see in the pics. Very strange stuff hope to get it working, i have 12gb of ram in system running on an i5 3340 processor. I will burn a new dvd maybe it is corrupt.


    Update I found that the omv installer was looking at my sd card as a mass storage device and was making a root partition of only 3GB approx and a swap partition for the other 12GB on the sd card. It was not giving me an option to change the partitions so i ended up doing a netinstall of debian first and set it to use the whole sd card as root. I hope this works and will update this post to let others know. Thanks

    First time poster and new to omv, i did my install to a 16GB sd card after following a guide found here on this site for formatting and testing. The card verified good so did my fresh install and all went good with install, but after using for a couple days and adding plugins i noticed that i could not run update check anymore. Searched this site and and looked around in the install and found that my filesystem on the boot drive was full at only 2.81GB even though it is a 16GB card. I also noticed that when i look at disks it shows as /dev/sdc 14.84GB but under filesystems it shows as /dev/sdc1 2.81GB.
    Hope someone can help me out, I looked at the card in gparted and saw that it had 2 partitions the first was only the 2.81 GB as sdc1 and the second was at 11.80GB or so but it said that partition was the swap partition. I could not shrink one and enlarge the other, it would not let me do that. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help :thumbsup:
