Hassio installation on Raspbian (raspberry pi 2)

Hi All,

I’m trying to install hassio using the "Alternative: install Home Assistant Supervised on a generic Linux host, https://www.home-assistant.io/hassio/installation/ " on a raspberry pi 2 but so far I’ve been unable to reach the hassio landing page (in my case

The pi OS is a fresh Raspbian lite install.

As far as my installation goes I’ve follow these steps:

“sudo add-apt-repository universe” which failed but as I’m running Raspbian and not Ubuntu I figured that might be alright.

I was able to successfully run the following:
sudo -i
apt-get update
apt-get install -y software-properties-common apparmor-utils apt-transport-https avahi-daemon ca-certificates curl dbus jq network-manager socat
systemctl disable ModemManager
systemctl stop ModemManager
curl -fsSL get.docker.com | sh

curl -sL “https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/supervised-installer/master/installer.sh” | bash -s – -m raspberrypi2

“journalctl -f -u hassio-supervisor.service” stops at “(MainThread) [supervisor.host.sound] Update PulseAudio information” which doesn’t tell me anything.

I’m not sure what what I can try next, any ideas?

Please read these notes before continuing on your Pi2.

I understand that the raspberry pi 2 should only be used for testing and is not recommended and I’m not expecting great performance. I would expect Hassio to at least run though.

I already installed Home Assistant which was running fine but I don’t feel like manually managing addons if you can let Hassio do it for you.

I’m hoping to get some tips to get Hassio to work on the pi 2 but if that’s not possible due to performance constraints then I guess I’ll have to upgrade.

My test-HA (Home Assistant Supervised, before known as Hassio on generic linux) runs on a Raspberry Pi 1. Ok, checking config and restart takes a little bit long, but for the rest it works OK. So a Pi 2 should be fine.

Here’s a funny story, I was utterly convinced I had pi 2 which actually turns out to be a pi 1.
I installed the correct version and everything works like a charm.

I feel like such an idiot.

Português: Carlos na sua instalação do PI2 você consegue utilizar o menu supervisor? aqui não estou conseguindo

If you don’t have a supervisor menu then you didn’t install supervised but instead installed core which does not include the supervisor.

I think you may be right… :slight_smile:

My configs, could you help me to identify the condition you mentioned?

You definitely should have supervisor with that install.

Too bad that when trying to access it the browser returns no response

Have you done an empty cache/hard reload? Press F12 and right click on refresh icon and select that option.
You DO have a supervisor menu…
Have you tried a different browser?

Yea I have it.

What is download link for hassio image for Raspberry Pi 1?
