Installation on Debian¶
You can install openmediavault on a Debian installation as well.
To do so, on x86 simply install the system using the Debian netinst images. After that apply the commands below. Please do not install a graphical environment, use a minimal server installation only. For a step by step install guide have a look into the Debian minimal install guide.
On ARM devices check if there’s an appropriate Armbian Buster (Debian 10) image available. After installing Armbian then use the armbian-config tool to install OMV in a single step with all performance and reliability tweaks included. If there’s no Armbian for your device simply follow the steps outlined below.
Install the openmediavault keyring manually:
apt-get install --yes gnupg wget -O "/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/openmediavault-archive-keyring.asc" https://packages.openmediavault.org/public/archive.key apt-key add "/etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/openmediavault-archive-keyring.asc"
Add the package repositories:
cat <<EOF >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openmediavault.list deb https://packages.openmediavault.org/public usul main # deb https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/openmediavault/packages usul main ## Uncomment the following line to add software from the proposed repository. # deb https://packages.openmediavault.org/public usul-proposed main # deb https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/openmediavault/packages usul-proposed main ## This software is not part of OpenMediaVault, but is offered by third-party ## developers as a service to OpenMediaVault users. # deb https://packages.openmediavault.org/public usul partner # deb https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/openmediavault/packages usul partner EOF
