Hi guys,

 

I'm actually on baremetal with my G8 and i plan to update to DSM 7.0.1 but i'm actually on a 3617 base.

If i build for a 3615 will it be possible to update my server from a 3617 ? 

 

Thanks

Yeah, it’ll identify the disks as being from

another server and offer to do a migration for you. So long as you give it a pat file that matches the version and architecture you’ve built the boot image for you you’ll be fine.

My system, J3455B-ITX boots in aprox ~ 10 minutes. Wait more time.

Left it for 30 minutes and it didn't seem to load still 🤷🏾‍♂️.

 

Do you mind sharing exactly what files and method you used to build the image?

Compiled 7.0.1 with last BSP patch and works perfect ;)

 

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1CqqhO-TBdwOff0dH54iP-XPdrhzgvtNR/view?usp=sharing

 

- Add UEFI support.
- Deleted twice EFI folder.
- Fixed SynoBoot_EFI place.
- Compiled with last BSP Patch for 7.0.1.
- Insmod efi_gop into EFI.
- Tested with Baremetal and works fine (Astock 3455-ITX).
- After installation (the reboot process can take 15-20 minutes) you have to install File Station manually: https://www.synology.com/en-us/support/download/DS918+#system (select DSM 7.0), find and download File Station SPK and install it in Package Center.

Works well on my ASROCK 3455B-ITX, thanks very much.

Although I discovered that the SYNOLOGY DRIVE SERVER and OFFICE packages cannot be installed. (I didn't try all, maybe there are still some more)

Toda la noche el servidor estuvo funcionando y disfrutó de su vida.

actualice Docker a la versión 1239

esta mañana utilicé filezilla y copié archivos a través del protocolo ftp después de 500 GB, el servidor perdió la conexión de red, tengo que reiniciar el servidor e iniciar Docker nuevamente y el servidor se reinicia nuevamente falla -> configure docker new JD2 y filezilla y el servidor se reinicia nuevamente choque

usó el martillo, nada se reinicia😀

I have been doing tests with a single pihole container, I restored it from 0 and had a restart on my Gen8, for now I stop Docker waiting for the boot to advance. Thanks to those of you who advance in this project.

Baremetal with onboard nic? How long did it take to boot?

Today I started DSM7.0 with RedPill and VMwareFusion on my MacBook Pro, but after power off my notebook the virtual machine is not boot.

The experiment was repeated twice. Both times the result is the same

 

I am stupid.🤣

Have anyone got Face detection work in Photos with Redpill 918+ in Proxmox?

 

My usr/syno/etc/codec/activation.conf contains

{"success":true,"activated_codec":["hevc_dec","h264_dec","h264_enc","mpeg4part2_dec"],"token":"**REMOVED**"}

 

dev/dri/ contains 
card0  renderD128

 

However no faces gets detected.

Cheers...  I love the progress of redpill

Face detection works for me on ds3615xs. Real SN and Mac. I only had to change cpu to 2 cpu / 2 core

I saw some comment to add more cpu/core , however didnt solve my issue?

 

Which PAT file do you use for the ds3615xs install? The only one i found was 7.0.1RC , which failed to install..

For those who are stuck on file corrupted error (13) during DSM installation step with ESXi, I would like to share my workarounds. There are two things I've missed.

 

1. Choose SATA mode instead of USB!

 

USB boot is for baremetal (physical usb thumb drive) or virtual USB emulation for hypervisor. The one we used to choose in the previous Jun's loader is just introduced in redpill by the latest update. So try with SATA mode passing synoboot_satadom=2 in grub.cfg.

 

2. Check your vmdk

 

For long time, I have used a pair of files as bootloader, raw disk image file and dummy vmdk file which is pointing actual image file. This was the mistake. To obtain valid vmdk file, I first convert built img file using "qemu-img convert -f raw -O vmdk redpill-DS918+_6.2.4-25556_b1632162635.img boot.vmdk" in ubuntu shell, then again convert "vmkfstools -i boot.vmdk -d thin bootin.vmdk" in ESXi shell. Please let me know better way to do this.

 

After these two things are resolved, it finishes DSM installation process and finally shows login screen! Thanks!

Whilst you mention this fixed things up for ESXi, does anyone know if its a similar process / requirement for Proxmox?

 

I am going to be using Proxmox for the first time (ever) on a test PC that I have so knowing the key pieces would be great.

 

Great work from all involved in getting things this far 😀

I asked about Proxmox :-) 

I may test ESXi instead ...

PVE is the easiest way to install DSM 7

you can try to switch the cpu setting in Proxmox from kvm64 to haswell or something.

 

kvm64 don‘t work with facedetection on some systems. 

 

Did not help.
Did a full wipe of the DSM after i changed the CPU to Haswell.

Getting some error messages

First restart was about 10 minutes after install, but I didn't try it again.

FYI, 6.2 with JUN's loader took 8-10 minutes on the same motherboard.

Did someone successfully updated from 6.2.4 to 6.2.4 update 2 ?

when I tried a week or two ago, update failed for me...

 

Edit :

Inside the update 2 PAT file, there is a flashupdate_6.2-25556-s2_all.deb

it contains :

As it was with Jun loader some files in the loader will be overwritten (Mainly rd.gz and zImage). Recover the loader from a known working image and try to see if  this works.
