  1. My Helios64 is "far away" and I am afraid to change network configuration, because if I miss something I could lose connectivity to the box. I would like to attach COM-to-IP adapter so that I always had serial console available, but... what actually do I need? "Normal" com-to-ip adapter provides COM port. Helios64 has COM-in-USB. So...? How to convert Helios'es serial console to anything accessible via LAN?
  2. Yas, actually I am more interested in the meaning of the first message. :-)
  3. I have nfs server. Whenever I do "systemctl stop nfs-kernel-server" I can see this in dmesg: lockd: couldn't shutdown host module for net f00000a1! Later when I do "systemctl start nfs-kernel-server" I see this: NFSD: starting 90-second grace period (net f00000a1) Of course "systemctl restart" gives me both messages in a row. Any idea what does it mean? What the hell is this "f00000a1"? Except strange messages everything seems to work fine...
  4. @tionebrr Well... Yes, of course you may use /by-id instead of /by-partuuid. The clou is to use any "permanent" id instead of /dev/sdX. :-) By the way: I never had an idea to rm anything is /dev... It sounds dangerous.
  5. Well, generally it is good idea to partition your disk before you use it. :-) For example like this: # gdisk -l /dev/sda GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.5 Partition table scan: MBR: protective BSD: not present APM: not present GPT: present Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT. Disk /dev/sda: 3907029168 sectors, 1.8 TiB Model: WDC XXX Sector size (logical/physical): 512/4096 bytes Disk identifier (GUID): XXX Partition table holds up to 128 entries Main partition table begins at sector 2 and ends at sector 33 First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 3907029134
  6. Focal / root on eMMC / ZFS on hdd / LXD / Docker I received my Helios64 yesterday, installed the system, and decided to write down my steps before I forget them. Maybe someone will be interested. :-) Preparation: Assembly your box as described here. Download Armbian Focal image from here and flash it to SD card. You may use Ether. Insert the SD card to your Helios64 and boot. After 15-20s the box should be accessible via ssh. (Of course you have to find out it's IP address somehow. For example check your router logs or use this.) F
