Having toyed around with the pine64 for a couple of weeks, I feel that now I zeroed in on a real day-to-day purpose for it. I want it to act as a NAS/ sync server. While I know that I could just get BitTorrent sync + samba installed on it and live happily ever after, I am wondering if it would be possible to build omv for the pine64. From what I remember omv uses Debian (right?) and not Ubuntu - hence my question, would it be possible to install omv on top of ubuntu?

Hi Luke,

When you say "would be possible to build omv for the pine64", what exactly do you have in mind? Are you suggesting a omv image a user can simply download, burn and boot, then have a wizard type walk-through to get it up and running?

I ask as I've always thought the real advantage of ovm was it really does do what they say in the project readme... "simple and easy to use out-of-the-box solution"


If that is the goal then I would very much support the idea..

To answer the Debian question, the Debian Jessie Images (3.10.65 BSP Kernel) is up and running (all be it with the currently linux limitations), so I guess the first thing to do is a manual install of the required packages, omv framework and plugin's and see what run's.

I suspect there will be lots of opportunities to overcome challenges Smile ... If enough people are interested we should give it a go....


Thank you for responding frewind! 

Yes, I now know that there is a debian img, and if I've known this earlier I would have manually installed the framework and packages. 
Both my pine64's have now their assigned purposes (one an irc server - see sig; the other a wordress server), but I may just get another one (or two) in the coming months and will then make it into a omv server Smile


Lets stay in touch !
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter
