OpenMediaVault and Plex Media Server
This weekend, I found out that my raidz was created with 3 drives on Freenas and when I tried to add a new drive, found out the only way is to backup, destroy raid, build a new one and copy back.So, being tired with Freenas, I decided to try out OpenMediaVault (openmediavault.org). It peaked my interest because of not only good reviews, but it is based on Debian as well. My Debian knowledge is so much better than FreeBSD, so I said why not.Once the dust was settled, I needed to find out how to install the Plex Media Server, which I love and use almost every day. Thanks to Christian Svedin, this task was easy. Just connect via SSH and run:
sudo apt-get install curl echo "deb http://shell.ninthgate.se/packages/debian squeeze main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list curl http://shell.ninthgate.se/packages/shell-ninthgate-se-keyring.key | sudo apt-key add - sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install plexmediaserver
The instructions above also work for Debian Wheezy, just change
Now time to play more with OMV
title=”OMV for wheezy – help needed”>
I also want to run OMV on wheezy and not on squeeze. I tried squeeze but network install is already missing links.
I tried wheezy, but failed – could not find missing dependencies for OMV, its not fully supported yet.
If you will find a way to install it,please share. I will be happy to use it too.
I want to use full Debian version and not only OMV OS, because then I will be limited. Mostly I want to run website and maybe some VM at the same time as OMV – if all this is possible.
I am running the Squeeze from OpenMediaVault, I have no specific needs for Wheezy, so I didn’t try it.
