|This is another in the series documenting my setup of a new home server with the Linksprite pcDuino3 Nano. A listing for the entire series can be found here. More information on the pcDuino3 Nano can be found at Linksprite’s website and the pcDuino website.|
Back in December when I started my pcDuino3 Nano Home Server Project I outlined how I was replacing my current home server which uses Open Media Vault running on a Raspberry Pi. In my pcDuino3 Nano – NAS or ??? post I talked about deciding to use something else as OMV neither OMV nor Debian the flavor of Linux that it runs on has a large installed base on the pcDuino.
As I moved forward with the project and started pulling together the software that I wanted to use for my home server I decided that while a home server could certainly be built from scratch the integration that you get with OMV was worth seeing if I could get it up and running on the pcDuino3 Nano.
Thanks to the excellent build scripts from Igor Pecovnik I have had some initial success and now have OMV running on the pcDuino3 Nano. I plan to document the build and install process in future posts but I wanted to pass along what I have working in case anyone else is looking to run Debian on the pcDuino3 Nano.
Here are some links:
- Igor Pecovnik’s web site with his A20 Debian releases.
- Igor Pecovnik’s github repository with the build scripts.
- My fork of the build scripts with patches to support builds on pcDuino3 Nano. This is still a work in progress so it may not work.
- A zipped file suitable for an SD Card of Debian Wheezy for the pcDuino3 Nano. The root password is 1234.
If you have any feedback please post it in the comments section below. I will attempt to address any questions as quickly as possible.
