    Unfortunately most packages it wanted to remove had untangle-feature in the name. Defeating the purpose and features of untangle. It would be nice if it didn't require a lot of work. I will just wait for the next version. I think they are slow to adapt so I was wondering if it might be easy to update the kernel. Seems it would be more than I suspected.


    Thanks


    Proxmox 7 has been released by the way. Debian 11 has not. Going to wait a while for that too. LOL

    Just the kernel and headers installed but didn't work. Not sure why. So I installed the repo. Apt wanted to remove 43 packages that would have maid it not worth the effort. They modify the stock buster kernel so I just wondered if a newer (modern) kernel might be a big improvement. It works well enough it is not worth the effort.


    Thanks again.

    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

    Seems browsers are getting more picky about certificates. If names don't match the self signed cert or date or whatever they wont let you go to the page. Try the ip address instead. Or setup letsencrypt.


    If it is just for local access do you need https?

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

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

    What type of ad are you using? Windows, samba or one of many others.


    If it is windows try my link above. It has been a while since I used it but it worked on OMV 3 4 and 5. If not look threw it you might see something useful.


    It is based on sssd that is a newer way to connect but some have trouble with other than windows. sssd has seen updates since and may work now. Who knows.

    Well a clean install of 5.5.11 iso worked fine here. Changed a few things. Time zone, auto logout and password and they applied fine. Did updates and it went fine. Yellow apply updates took a few minutes but finished also. Changed a few other setting and all went well. You might try apt install -f to see if everything installed correctly. Here is my vm.conf.


    I have used proxmox since version 3.x and have had OMV 2 threw 5 and most beta or rc without issues. They have all been on seabios though. Might try ovmf if I get some time later. Not sure why that would matter.


    I would change your cpu type to host and advanced setting to match. Also change the network to virtio and look at advanced there too.

    OMV5 web ui showed updates were available. Selected all and clicked install. This ended with error repeating for a long time.


    Went to cli and did apt install -f.

    I think the grub update wants an interactive shell.


    Anyway all is well and rebooting worked ok.


    FYI

    Both can be used in the way that works for you. For my money Proxmox is likely more stable than OMV. Not a knock to OMV by any means. Make a list of pro's and cons and do what works best for you.


    Proxmox: Pro, Team (large ?) of developers. Con, commercial company and could change at their wim. See centos. Pro: lots of users in production around the world.


    OMV: Pro, Free and open with community support. Con, One main developer with some help from community.


    I have been using OMV since the early days and love it. Moving it to a vm on Proxmox was the best thing I did. Your mileage may very.
