Install hass.io docker images on ArchLinuxARM

#1

Hi, I’m using standard Home Assistant setup running on an ArchLinuxARM system (Odroid XU4 board)
I tried to migrate my installation to Hassio docker images, in order to install some addons I’m interested in (VSCode, etc.)
I downloaded the hassio_install script and ran it as root, with my architecture as parameter:

./hassio_install -m armv7l

Installation was succesful but it does not work. Of course, I checked the kernel parameters and added “apparmor=1 security=apparmor”. I installed apparmor tools but problem is that my Kernel does not seem to provide AppArmor and hassio relies on it. Seems that the Docker images are designed for Ubuntu, etc… but not for other Linux flavour.

Would it be possible to install hassio without AppArmor? I want to keep Arch and don’t want to install another distro.
Thanks for your help

I’m not so sure AppArmor is mandatory, as it seems my supervisor is running, but can not run homeassistant image.

When I check the hassio-supervisor service, it tells me the homeassistant image is not available

sudo docker ps

It’s not apparmor related: https://github.com/home-assistant/hassio-build/issues/58

Yes indeed, the install script gets the ARCH variable (armv7l in my case) and tries to instanciate a docker image homeassistant/armv7l-homeassistant, which does not exist…
homeassistant/armv7-homeassistant does exist but then I have to pass the parameter “-m armv7” so that it download it.

This is not perfect because this image is generic and does not allow any addons installation :frowning:
Supported arch are:

  • intel-nuc
  • odroid-c2
  • odroid-xu
  • orangepi-prime
  • qemuarm
  • qemuarm-64
  • qemux86
  • qemux86-64
  • raspberrypi
  • raspberrypi2
  • raspberrypi3
  • raspberrypi3-64
  • tinker

As I’m running an Odroid U3, I manually setup my hassio environment like an Odroid XU (same armv7 architecture) in /etc/hassio.json

{armv7
“supervisor”: “homeassistant/armv7-hassio-supervisor”,
“homeassistant”: “homeassistant/odroid-xu-homeassistant”,
“data”: “/usr/share/hassio”
}

I also noticed the installer installs the armhf version of the hassio-supervisor, and a armv7-supervisor would have been better. I modified the installer to fit my setup.
