installing Home Assistant through "softy"?

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to install Home Assistant through "softy" in the armbian-config tool on my nanopi neo plus 2.

The process seems like it goes through, but I can't connect to the interface (ip-address:8123).

Would someone be able to point me to the script that softy uses for this installation, so I can try to do the steps manually?

(I wish to install with Home Assistant with "supervision", and haven't been able to do it with their guides, so now I'm trying throuhg armbian-config).

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

The method to install home assistant supervised in the armbian script does not work any more, even if you have a version of their script there are assets it tries to pull from web locations which have been removed so you have to use their new method.

This part of the Armbian script:

debconf-apt-progress -- apt-get install -y apparmor-utils apt-transport-https avahi-daemon ca-certificates \
	dbus jq network-manager socat software-properties-common

curl -sL "" | \
	bash -s -- -m  ${machine}

should be replaced with:

apt-get install \
jq \
wget \
curl \
udisks2 \
libglib2.0-bin \
network-manager \
dbus -y
#next line is for 64bit platforms, need arm7 instead of aarch64 for 32bits
dpkg -i os-agent_1.0.0_linux_x86_64.deb
dpkg -i homeassistant-supervised.deb

I would not advise using armbian-config to do this since it it very easy to miss error messages since when the installer finishes the screen instantly refreshes and errors are lost, then you have to hunt for a log file if one exists.
