I’m new in the home assistasnt, I wonder if is possible to install other SO in the raspberry (raspbian or other) and use home assistant too, I mean, I want to use my raspberry as computer and home assistant too.
Is that possible?
If yes, how can I do that?
Which SO recommends?
What is the bigger capacity in the micro SD recommend it and support it?
I have raspberry pi 4B 8gb
Thanks a lot
Sure, you can use any of the
recommended methods, or the alternative ones if you’re sufficiently experienced with Linux. There’s also community guides.
What is SO ?
For your Pi, I would recommend not to use a SD card, but a ssd or HDD. SD cards tend to corrupt after prolonged use.
Hahaha sorry for my “span-glish” SO “sistema operativo”, Operating System.
Thanks for the tip, do you know what is the bigger capacity supported for the pi?
I reviewed the recommendation, but I wonder which OS use in the pi, raspbian?
On my pi 4 8Gb, I run Ubuntu 20.04 LTS 64bit, on a 750Gb HDD.
Oh my… ok ok! And you have home assistant installed as VM?
No. You can’t install vm’s on arm. Just running HA supervised.
Sorry for my misunderstanding, running home assistant supervised? I don’t get your point
how is that?
Raspbian all the way (or whatever it’s called this week).
Ubuntu does “strange things” at times with their software choices, and it can cause problems if you’re not familiar with Linux.
You can use RPi OS and Docker and install HA on Docker. I have Portainer too to manage Docker
Sounds easier, just one question, your method is different to the “home assistant supervised”???
No, you can install it supervised.
Check this post.
Minus a couple changes in the install process, this worked perfectly for me to run my rpi 4b off a 500gb USB 3.0 SSD. No SATA adapters, no boot from SD first, just USB 3.0 > USB-C on a Samsung T7 external SSD drive.
As for power, I did toss a 3A power supply on it and also plan to move the USB SSD to a powered USB Hub (just to keep things happy, cool, and powered), also probably toss an ice tower cooler on at some point to; but as of now, it runs 100x better and faster then my SD did — benchmar…
If you click on the title you can edit to change SO to OS
Only the OP (original poster) or a moderator can do that.
