Home Assistant OS 6: Release Candidate 1/2/3 (testing welcome!)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fc41b3b94d0>

Hm, yes this looks like you are running 6.0.rc1 indeed. Not sure why the front-end did not catch up yet. Maybe Supervisor → System → Reload Supervisor helps?

Would this be a good place to post a bug I noticed? To be fair, it’s not this release but maybe a few releases back but still not fixed in this rc.
I have a 5 years old Samsung smartTV. I was able to control it on/off via HA. But for now, these buttons do nothing:

For now, I can only see the status if the TV is on/off.

Just installed RC1 on my RPI 3, snapshot, migrated to my new Odroid C4 and have these logs:

WARN: buffer overrun event for slot 9 ep 8 on endpoint

But everything seems to be working fine, thanks. Just if I can get rid of this warning.

For info, also use usb ssd for data, maybe causing the warning??

Edit: this morning host was not reachable by ping…

This is most likely not related to Home Assistant OS but Home Assistant Core and its integration with Samsung TV.

I haven’t tested USB SSD on ODROID-C4 really. What would be interesting is if this also happens when using 5.13 and USB SSD (e.g. is this a new bug or is this a regression).

What could cause the problem is using a USB SSD which makes use of the new USB mass storage protocol called “UAS”. You can check if your drive is using UAS by executing lsmod, if you find uas in the list of modules your drive is most likely making use of UAS. You can disable UAS by editing config.txt (in the first partition of the boot SD/eMMC) and add usb-storage.quirks=0xXXXX:0xYYYY:u, where XXXX is the vendor ID of your USB SSD, and YYYY the product id. The command lsusb shows this information.

I checked with lsmod:

I don’t see UAS

I installed today to my Nuc (D34010WYK) with generic-x86-64 from the scratch.
In few hours HA is not accessible.
I connected hdmi and found, that wifi is lost.
message: iwlwifi no beacon heard and the time event is over already
My wifi module: Intel 7260HMW

aha, RC2 , that will fix my HA cloud issue, since now it waits untill it gets sycnhed with correct NTP!!
good job

Yes, RC2 will explicitly wait until the RTC clock is considered synchronized by systemd-timesyncd. It might lead to a slight delay, but its preferred over surprises afterwards :slight_smile:

If synchronizing isn’t successful boot will continue after 90s, so that the instance will boot even in absence of Internet.

@AndreyShpilevoy so you did connect your host through WiFi? This seems to be a known problem in upstream Linux, see https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=203709.

Best would be if you can open an issue in the HAOS repo along with additional information (e.g. type of router, 5GHz/2.4GHz Wi-Fi etc.).

yeah, i had issues connection to nabucasa cloud, with invalid token
it always happened after a complete HassOS reboot … if i just restarted HA afterwards i had no issues
i fixed it by changing the NTP server in HassOS, they were default set to time.google
i changed them to 0.be.ntp.pool.org

no idea why the one from google wasnt working, but after the change, i didnt had the issue anymore

Hm, I see, updating from 5.13 on Intel NUC tries to download the 6.0.rc1 image :see_no_evil: . I uploaded a renamed version for the update file so that the Supervisor is able to download the update file. Can you try again?

When trying to update to rc2 from 5.13

21-05-21 12:39:15 INFO (MainThread) [supervisor.hassos] Fetch OTA update from https://github.com/home-assistant/operating-system/releases/download/6.0.rc2/haos_intel-nuc-6.0.rc2.raucb
21-05-21 12:39:15 ERROR (MainThread) [supervisor.hassos] Error raise form OTA Webserver: 404

Instead of working around by renaming the release this will be addressed in the next Supervisor version, PR is pending:

You need to switch in Supervisor: join the beta channel.

I’m on the beta channel.

I had that issue sometimes too when I was trying development releases, a reboot of HassOs cleared that 404 issue

Not this time if you run the Intel NUC release.

Update went perfectly on virtualbox VM for both rc1 and rc2. Thanks for the great work and continued improvements!

Edit: rc3 also stable

updated to rc 3.0 , vmware system, all stable

good work guys

This error should be gone with supervisor-2021.05.3. Can you try updating again?
