OMV or a replacement

Post by Joep » Thu May 11, 2017 11:25 pm

I have an XU4/Coudshell/ 2TB disk running DietPi and OMV. I was using it as NAS for KODI clients. It was working very well. No OMV DietPi compatibility issues.
I started playing aroung with USB attached drives and finale I had to reload DietPi. But oh no, no more OMV. So now what can I do?

Is the version out there or a way where I can still install OMV and DietPi?
If not, any suggestions as a replacement for OMV still using DietPi ofcourse that will play nice with KODI?

Thanks

Hi,

OMV has been disabled, not removed. You can enable the install by changing this line in /DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-software:
https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/blob/ ... ware#L1322
To

Code: Select all

aSOFTWARE_TYPE[$index_current]=0
Although, we cant support the installation.

I'd personally recommend using DietPi-Software to install samba server, then point it to your 2TB drive:

You can also use DietPi-Drive_Manager to setup 2TB drive, obtain UUID/mount location etc.

Thanks for your reply. I took your suggestion and went with Samba server. It is not as easy as OMV but works as well and is supported as you pointed out.

Thanks again
Joep
