    bunducafe got a reaction from lanefu in Does anyone actually have a stable system?   
    After fiddeling aroud I finally have the helios64 also running solid. I never had any freezes before just some problems with getting the system to boot from the emmc device and, see other thread, with setting up OMV - LUKS - Snapraid - UnionFS
     
    I am currently under: Linux helios64 5.10.21-rockchip64 #21.02.3 SMP PREEMPT Mon Mar 8 01:05:08 UTC 2021 aarch64 GNU/Linux
    OMV Version 5.6.2-1 (Usul)
     
    So I would say that OMV is not the culprit out of the box. The system works fine but it always depends on what kind of plugins you are using etc. So far I have no docker installed here but I certainly will do that again. I do recommend the OMV Backup Plugin so I can boot from the latest stable release via SDcard if I mess up with something. That's also nice.

    bunducafe reacted to gprovost in How can I move the root filesystem manually from sata drive to eMMC   
    Yes unfortunately nand-sata-install does not work the other way around, I'm looking at it currently since there was another use case related to install on OS rootfs on HDD that wasn't also supported.
     
    The step for you case should be :
     
    1. First boot the system on a microSD card with a fresh install of Armbian.
     
    2. Copy rootfs from old destination (HDD) to new destination (eMMC)
     
    mkdir /mnt/rfs_new /mnt/rfs_old mount /dev/mmcblk2p1 /mnt/rfs_new/ mount /dev/sdX1 /mnt/rfs_old/ rsync -avrlt --delete --exclude-from=/usr/lib/nand-sata-install/exclude.txt /mnt/rfs_old/ /mnt/rfs_new/  
    3. use command blkid to know the UUID of /dev/mmcblk2p1
     
    4. Modify /mnt/rfs_new/boot/armbianEnv.txt to modify rootdev line with the UUID of /dev/mmcblk2p1
     
    verbosity=1 bootlogo=false overlay_prefix=rockchip rootdev=UUID=075c8660-77ca-4048-a04b-be3364c60a40 rootfstype=ext4 usbstoragequirks=0x2537:0x1066:u,0x2537:0x1068:u  
    5. Modify /mnt/rfs_new/etc/fstab 
     
    - Remove /media/mmcboot and /boot mount point lines
    - Edit / mount point to use the UUID of /dev/mmcblk2p1
     
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> tmpfs /tmp tmpfs defaults,nosuid 0 0 UUID=075c8660-77ca-4048-a04b-be3364c60a40 / ext4 defaults,noatime,nodiratime,commit=600,errors=remount-ro,x-gvfs-hide 0 1  
    6. Sync and Poweroff
     
    7. Remove microSD and Poweron (maybe cross your finger also)

    Hi folks,
     
    just a heads up in this thread (maybe related to others experiencing boot issues with Helios64 and OMV5):
     
    If you use the setup: OMV5, Multiple Hdds, LUKS encryption + UnionFS
     
    then it is very likely that the machine does not come up instead is booting into revocery mode. That's because it cannot find any mountpoints because of LUKS. In order to get the helios booting again you have to add a "nofail" into the mergerfs option.
     
    Unfortunately the merferfs pool does not getting mounted automatically once you decrypted the hdds within LUKS Plugin. That's a bit of a nuisance but it is bearable if you do not boot your machine every day. In my case I had to remove the nofail, the mergerfs did mount immediately and then I did put the nofail in again. There might be a more elegant possibility but at least it is a remedy to get the helios working again.
     
    Jump over to the OMV-forums and do a search for LUKS + UnionFS + nofail and you find several threads about that issue.
     
    I have no idea if it is better to swith to the merferfsfolder plugin because I have no knowledge so far if I just can change the plugins without any errors.

    bunducafe got a reaction from allen--smithee in Very noisy fans   
    Hi folks,
     
    I am fairly new here, reading, trying to understand but do have some knowledge with Unix and some SBC. Now the Helios64 is on arrival and I would like to know if I should change the fans immediately in order to get a quieter case. 
     
    Is the NF-A8-PWM significantly less noisy than the stock ones? Or is there maybe a different route to go?!

    In few years I been lurking here, this is only time I can recall such thing happening.  Of course everyone make mistakes, and there were probably some I was not aware of, but this is first time I can remember such thing happening.
