I am downloading the various aarch64 8.5 images. Focusing on minimal
and dvd. I will be putting it somehow on a usb stick and need to find
out how the Odroid will recognize it
My Odroid/HC4 is enroute; should be here in a day or two so what to do
How does the iso image install figure out where to put the partitions?
Until I learn how, I suspect I will be putting the /boot on the mSD card
after the uboot. HardKernel (maker of Odroid) has a larger uboot that
some devices. How do I insure that the partition does not step on it.
Is RAID1 built in? The HC4 has 2 sata slots and I will be putting
identical 2.5" HD in them. Would like to use RAID1.
I would like to place the / partition on the HDs. That should be fairly
straight-forward with extlinux.conf append like:
What would this look like with RAID1?
I am going to be rooting ( :) ) around the Odroid/HC4 wiki for how to
boot an alternative OS iso and put down the uboot, but need to look at
this from both sides.
It is time to upgrade systems here, and it seems that arm32 has been
left in the scrap heap. Shame with all the Allwinner boards I have...
Is there a list of tested aarch64 systems? I am particularly looking
for ones with 4GB memory and sata support.
I have never been a fan of Raspberry, and with the RPi4, you have to get
at least a sata extension board. I do like it still works with 5v; 3a
is no problem for me with my Anker power supply, but I suspect more will
be needed once you add the sata expansion card and drive (thus whatever
is in the list of other aarch64 systems should have power requirements).
Anyway, as I go back before Centos1 (I believe it was called WhiteHat),
I need to go with the flow. Hard to believe Centos has managed for so
long. By Centos.
I'm preparing to virtualize a Windows server onto a Linux system under virsh.
Initial results are looking good, but an issue that's come up is the need to
log into the Linux system prior to being able to access the Windows system for
Is there a way to "connect" the virsh console directly to a physical Linux
EG: Ctl+Alt+F8 to access the Windows virsh console for Windows Server
I'm using AlmaLinux 8.5 on my workstation. Today running dnf update I
noticed that it is trying to install new packages, This is the list of
This is followed by "Dependency Installation":
I checked if clevis and other packages are installed but I can't find
them. So why it is trying to install new deps and packages?
Thank you in advance.
