OpenMediaVault is currently distributed as an ISO image and in source form.
    OpenMediaVault was inspired by FreeNAS and other commercial NAS but is a complete new implementation. It is released under the GNU General Public License.

    Copyright Volker Thiele (thanks for this awesome work)

    Made this image because I think this would be very useful to Udoo Users. With E-sata port, gigabit LAN, and all the power it has, think this will be a perfect solution to build an homemade NAS. The image is built on the same minimal ARMhf image and the kernel has the latest load average fix.

    This comes with some plugins already installed:
    Transmission BitTorrent
    ClamAV AntiVirus
    Apple Filling
    MiniDLNA DLNA Server
    Autoshutdown
    OpenVPN
    DNS and DHCP Server


    CREDENTIALS:

    SSH
    USER: root
    PASSWORD: openmediavault

    WEBUI:
    USER: admin
    PASSWORD: openmediavault

    Yes, very useful.

    Have already had one person asking about this sort of thing on IRC and was able to point them at this thread. Very useful, and is a great addition.

    This is exactly what I wanted, thank you. Only one thing missing for me - can't mount NTFS usb hard drive. Every time I'm stuck with following error message

    FATAL: Module fuse not found.

    As I understand it, used kernel is without fuse module and I should be able to compile kernel with fuse module but sadly I can't figure out how. Would be someone who was successful with this matter please kind enough to share how to make NTFS work?

    Thank you mikelangeloz for the interesting post.

    I have similar problem like dottore had with the OMV image: I can't mount NTFS SATA hard drives with this image. It seems to be a general problem, that has something to do with unsupported proprietary NTFS drivers. I had the same issue with ubuntu 12.04 image for udoo and for an "older" hardware (Time Slice). Though with Debian 7 wheezy armhf http://www.udoo.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=576 it was possible to mount NTFS hard drives at udoo.

    After some research on how to install OMV to an existing Debian armhf, there seems to be no such activities in this direction (check http://www.udoo.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=590).
    There is an installation guide for RPi (http://forums.openmediavault.org/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=481) which seems to be not fully applicable to the udoo. I could install OVM but could not start the WebGUI and only got an "500 internal server error".

    So far my results up to now, maybe this will help others with their attempts.

    Hi
    I tried to install OMV in accordance with the instructions for RPI (thanks udoo_juergens).
    The same problem and got an "500 internal server error".

    In the file / var/log/apache2/openmediavault-webgui_error.log i can see this:

    (104) Connection reset by peer: mod_fcgid: error reading data from FastCGI server
    [error] Premature end of script headers: index.php

    I have not found a solution yet.

    Hi.
    I added one file /etc/default/locale ("touch locale) and everything is ok.

    Regards

    @ rafalsw: You just added a file /etc/default/locale and now it works? I tried the same and restarted Apache but still only got error 500.

    Yes. Try dpkg-reconfigure locales maybe and watch file: /var/log/apache2/error.log (tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log) when you try to open OMV.
    You can also check if the file /var/www/openmediavault/index.php starts up correctly:
    cd /var/www/openmediavault/
    php-cgi index.php
    In no errors, apache is the problem.
    Tomorrow i will try install everything again, from scratch, maybe I did something else I forgot :)

    Thanks rafalsw for the hints.
    I checked tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log and got the error "suexec policy violation: see suexec log for more details" when I tried to open OMV. I couldn't find a solution for that error in the internet, so I removed apache2-suexec (apt-get remove apache2-suexec) and reinstalled again. Now I can access the OMV WebGUI.

    When I checked "/var/log/apache2/error.log" i got the error "php-fcgi: 26: .: Can't open /etc/default/locale" only.

    Now I'm getting the next error: When I go to System -> Plugins I get the error:
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Failed to execute command 'export LANG=C;sudo dpkg-query --list 'openmediavault-*'':

    Error #4000:
    exception 'OMVException' with message 'Failed to execute command 'export LANG=C;sudo dpkg-query --list 'openmediavault-*'': ' in /var/www/openmediavault/rpc/plugin.inc:186

    I followed the instructions below from http://phpbb.openmediavault.org/vie...sid=bda449156eabf1746d2c2e7433da64fb&start=40 without success. Still get the same error message.

    1) root from the command line:
    mkdir /var/lib/dpkg/updates
    chmod 755 /var/lib/dpkg/updates
    mkdir -p /var/lib/php5
    chmod 1777 /var/lib/php5
    apt-get update

    2) reboot OMV

    Try to install openmediavault-omvpluginsorg package (apt-get install openmediavault-omvpluginsorg). For me it's works.

    What is he status of this with the Dual model? I was gifted one and would like to use it for a NAS/plex server. Also, what is the size requirement for this OS, 8gb like the standard Udoo distro? Thanks!

    Hi, all!
    Just wanted to ask what was the transfer speeds you guys are seeing when using samba?

    Im getting about 1MB/s up which seems rather low, although I am using USB drives instead of the sata connection (mind you this drive goes at 28MB/s locally)

    Otherwise, cheers and thanks a lot for your effort!

    Fails to boot/blank screens for me as well (on a Udoo Dual). I don't have a ton of experience with Linux. Anyone have any guidance on how to set this up starting from one of the stock images?

    I have a question about the tutorial. There is no mention of where to get the sata power cable used. My question is where can i get the sata power cable in question? or more specifically where can i get the molex female connector?

    As well has anyone else noticed that the sata power cable they sell in the starter kit isn't the same in the tutorial?
