RedPill - the new loader for 6.2.4 - Discussion


Recommended Posts

Everyone that's contacted me so far has been using either Xeon or Celeron CPUs, I've not heard from anyone with non-Intel CPU so far. Also, I (and others) extensively used docker on 6.2.3 and earlier versions on Jun's boot loader. These problems have only been observed on DSM 6.2.4 and 7.x since moving to redpill, and only on DS3615xs.


Would it make sense to create a 6.2.3 / Redpill combo to test if it's related to either Redpill OR 6.2.4 ?
As I see it, there have been two changes: Jun's -> Redpill and 6.2.3 -> 6.2.4

is it possible to upgrade from DSM 7.0 to DSM 7.0.1  with the DSM7.0 Redpill Loader ?

Upgrade done!

1. download the 7.0.1 from Synology

2. start upgrade on the currrent DSM 7.0

3. compile the Loader for 7.01 (i used a new USB Stick)

4.Shutdown the GEn8 replace the USB Stick with the new 7.0.1 Loader onit

5. Start the Gen8 and maybe 5min later you should have access again on the WebPage

Hp Gen8 - Baremetal - DS3615xs - DSM 7.0.1

CPU Intel (R) Xeon (R) E3-1265 V2

 

remove from "automatic" to disabled IPv6, update Docker to version 1239 and activate only Pihole and Tautulli, at the moment 45 minutes on without restart. Before that activate these two containers and later activate the portainer, at the moment it restarted, for now I'm going to try these two to see what happens.

 

* I have also updated ilo to version 2.78

I built a new nas using a SuperMicro C7B250-CB-ML w/i7-7700/32gb ram. I added an old Intel 1000PT and it's working just fine on 918+ 7.0.1.

 

I run one docker (Tautulli) and 1 VM (Valheim Server using debian). I did have to install opkg (lmsensor support) via command line, but otherwise, it's working great.

The docker crash behaviour seems to be quite specific to individuals' set up. A few people here have tried to run influxdb, at my suggestion, with no problems, while it crashes my system each time. Others are having repeated problems with jdownloader2, which I tried and was completely stable. Since we're all running with different data, I think this may be influenced by the load generated by the docker containers causing ppl problems (Java and database containers seem particularly problematic) 🤔

 

Likewise, while influxdb causes me problems, I've several other docker containers that continue to run on my system without problems.

I have DS918+ booloader, baremetal. I have no problem with docker. Even Face detection works fine. No unexpected reboots, no errors.

Created the bootable USB but when I try to boot it hangs at starting the kernel. Happens with apollolake 7.0 and 7.0.1.  Anyone able to point me in the right direction? 🥲

You seeing something like this?

If so it's not hanging, it's just there's no more output to the screen from that point as there's no frame buffer driver in the Synology kernel. Jun's bootloader used to put a message on screen to this effect, something that would be quite helpful in redpill, too, I think.

 

Further boot information is output to the serial port. If you're on a machine with a physical serial port you can view it there. If you're using ESXi or proxmox you'll need to attach a virtual serial port. If you're using some server-grade hardware with lights-out management you may be able to attach to it via ssh or web UI.

 

You should be able to connect to the server's web UI once it boots and gets a DHCP lease, though. Have a look in your DHCP server logs to find it's IP address, or use the Synology Assistant tool to find it.

I wasn't able to connect to the web ui though I had left it for like 5 minutes in that state. Maybe something else has gone wrong 🤔. I'll try again when I get home and hope for the best! 

 

Thanks for the quick reply!

 

Last question...about how long would it take before the web ui becomes accessible on boot?

Sounds like your system isn't bringing up the network, then. Check that your hardware is supported. If you post full details of your system people here can probably let you know what's supported or not.

I'm using the ASRock J4105 ITX motherboard. The network card it uses is the Realtek RTL8111H.

 

I guess the problem is the NIC...I just assumed it worked but I guess I'll need to get a compatible one.  I'll search the thread when I get home or if you have any recommendations I'd appreciate it!
