Install Home Assistant Community Store?

I’m looking to install Home Assistant Community Store. https://hacs.xyz/

https://www.home-assistant.io/blog/2020/05/26/installation-methods-and-community-guides-wiki/


It looks like dietpi is using Home Assistant Core
Run the Home Assistant Core application directly on Python. It does not provide the full Supervisor experience, and thus does not provide the Supervisor panel and add-ons.

FYI dietpi could use Home Assistant Supervised
The full Home Assistant experience on a regular Linux operating system. This method was previously known as “Hass.io on generic Linux”, installed on top of, e.g., Debian.

From https://hacs.xyz/docs/setup/download

Home Assistant Core​

Open a terminal
Change to the user that is running Home Assistant
Run the HACS download script

wget -O - https://get.hacs.xyz | bash -

I’m to change to the user that is running Home Assistant. Htop says the user is homeassistant how ever I cant seem to login.

homeassistant:x:997:994::/home/homeassistant:/usr/sbin/nologin

Thoughts?

You should be able to switch by using following command.

sudo -u homeassistant bash
. /home/homeassistant/pyenv-activate.sh

Not sure how install process changed, but I did some test in the past on this https://dietpi.com/forum/t/home-assistant-supervised-on-dietpi/4726/8

Result was a system having software installed conflicting with DietPi

Any updates on this? Supervisor would be great for my setup.

nothing changed as Home Assistant - Supervised is still conflicting with DietPi network configuration.

what you cant figure out how to install HA supervised? https://community.home-assistant.io/t/installing-home-assistant-supervised-on-a-raspberry-pi-with-debian-11/247116

Hello, what I did:

cd /mnt/dietpi_userdata/homeassistant
sudo su -c 'wget -O - https://get.hacs.xyz | bash -'
sudo chown homeassistant:homeassistant -R custom_components

And then following the Add Integration step (here).

nice that actually worked. Thanks

Starting next release, we will pre-download HACS plugin during HA install. However, activation would need to be done individually still as describe on HACS doc.

just to give everyone a heads up I was told on the hacs discord channel that dietpi installations were not supported.

so If you are having problems, you are on your own, with no support from hacs.

Maybe we should do same and accept DietPi script related questions only. Means to leave users with all their other questions alone.
