I'll try and put up a quick wiki on how to get this done.. Will let you know when it's ready.


Thanks a lot a lot again!  That's very kind of you, Agent Kith!  Shy
FYI, my new fanless PC is on the way home, and I will buy the NVMe M2 SSD HD in coming few days.  Then I can tell you more the result. Wink

Last night I've made a new DC cable for the new fanless PC.  And finally tonight I'll receive this new fanless pc.  Then I'll assembly with a newly brought NVMe SSD and 2 pcs of DDR4 4G ram.   I hope the installation of Snakeoil in NVMe SSD will be as easy and smooth as my previous experience.   Finger crossed.  :D

Here's a quick HOWTO on how to setup a NFS server on Snakeoil: Linky.

It's pretty generic at the moment but I will try and expand more later when I can.

That's so kind of you, Agent Kith. Please take your time for rest first. Because minimserver is necessary for my Lumin streamer. NFS is for some other not urgent purpose. Big Grin

Hi, Agent Kith,

Don't know what went wrong, my new fanless pc can't boot with the modified USB (according to https://www.snakeoil-os.net/wiki/Advance...l-snakeoil ).   I've taken that usb stick to other pc and also can't boot, can't go into ubuntu installation page.  I've burnt with rufus-3.11 and Win32DiskImager, got no luck with nether of them.  But if burnt from your original snakeoil-x86_64-1.1.0.iso  then it's fine, just can't detect my NVMe SSD.  That NVMe SSD can be found in CMOS menu.

Or, would you please make a NVMe supported installing ISO?  Thanks again, and I'm sorry for the problems. [Image: sweating.gif]

Alright.  After fighting with NVMe for almost a day, I chose to work around.  That's adding an old msata ssd into my fanless pc for OS installation, alongside with my new NVMe SSD.

Over-simplified steps:
1) burning the original ISO into USB, boot it and install Snakeoil into msata SSD as usual (the NVMe SSD won't be seen as no NVMe driver in that original kernel);
2) after successfully installed and run Snakeoil, then patching with latest original FW 1st, and then reboot and patch with the new NAS FW.  If one skipped patching the latest original FW, one can't save changing to NAS kernel after patching the NAS FW;
3) After rebooting there is still no NVMe shown in "Music Libary", because one needs to ssh to partition, format and mount that NVMe in /etc/fstab for future startup-auto-mount,  and etc......
4) Deselecting all players, LMS, SMB Windows File Sharing, Console login, avahi-daemon, and etc but choose Minimserver in "Snakeoil" tab, enabling Minimserver in "Music Player" tab (if can't see it then reboot again 1st), then either config Minimserver in SSH,(such as content directory), or in Minimwatch installed in other PC/platform; ......
5) Now the NVMe SSD is solely for storing music files, the OS is located in msata.  So in future I don't have to spend so much time to copy all those music files if there is anything goes wrong after I make any mistake to the OS..........

Well.... I think maybe that's all.

Suggestion:
1) of course more automation by system to save ssh work will be great, but I understand that's quite an unreasonable request;
2) I think RAM disk can't be trimmed in NAS FW.  I'm sorry that I think I'm one of the guy suggested to add RAM disk in Snakeoil....... sorry!  :shy:
