You can use debian as base-system and install omv there

Hi John

Getting started

  1. Downloading Ubuntu 16.04 image for R2 board from

  2. Running below command to burn this image to SD card which must be larger than 8GB

         dd if=\<image file\> of=/dev/mmcblk0

3.Install this SD to R2 board

  1. Press power button a few seconds to activate this board. The default baud rate of serial port is 115200, the default username/password are root/bananapi

Gary, OMV needs Debian, currently version 8, but moving to version 9 with the release of 4.x. It can’t run on Ubuntu, so this isn’t really helpful. I’d also like to run OMV on my R2 board, but the only Debian 8 image is less than stable and is missing a lot of drivers, which means things like SATA isn’t working.

why not building kernel with sata-support? 4.4 and 4.14 having github-repo…debian 9 image for bpi-r2 (kernel 4.14=without hdmi) is on my gdrive

if you need debian 8, you can build an own image with the instructions here:

Because not everyone’s as Linux genius? I’m mere a beginner, even though I’ve had to use it for years on various devices, since it’s THE embedded OS of choice for most devices. I’m just not confident enough to do things like building my own OS images or editing uBoot etc. and I don’t think I’m alone when it comes to that. I’m not afraid of a command line, but the thing is, in Linux, if I break something, I don’t know how to fix it and then I have to start over from scratch, which isn’t much fun.

you can use my compiled kernels from my gdrive :slight_smile: simply copy to boot/root like the folder in archive says

4.4 has hdmi-support, 4.14 has lan-port-separation, but no hdmi
