Installation on Khadas Vim3

Hi All

I’m new here but been doing a fair bit of reading on this.
I’ve recently run out of the need to use my Khadas Vim3
www.khadas.com/vim3
And would love some guidance on what is the best option for me to do a HassIO install of this on it of Home Assistant?

Do i follow the HA Supervised option?

UPDATED Install process:

  1. I went to the Khadas website and used Krescue to install Ubuntu Bionic
  2. I then followed the installation instructions at the bottom of the page of : https://www.home-assistant.io/hassio/installation/
  3. I also made sure i upgraded everything thing using the apt-get upgrade command
  4. Docker however wouldn’t install so i had to go to the docker site and followed this link
    https://phoenixnap.com/kb/how-to-install-docker-on-ubuntu-18-04
  5. then returned to the installation guide finishing with this command to install:
    curl -sL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/supervised-installer/master/installer.sh" | bash -s -- -m qemuarm-64
  6. once complete and not having set the DNS entry for hassio.local i had to use IPaddress:8123 to open my HA home page in my browser.

Again thanks for the help everyone, i’m looking forward to adding all my smart devices.

That is what I would try. What is the architecture?

@nickrout
the Architecture is “Amlogic A311D” on the Vim3.

I’m getting an error when trying to install Docker.
Might need to check on the Khadas/Vim3 forums on why that’s happening.

Hard to say without the error message.

Okay, i got it installed on Ubuntu, with docker.
I just went to the Docker site and followed the install guide there.

Now i can’t seem to start HA. i.e. the webpage isn’t loading.
hassio.local:8123

Is there something i need to do?

Okay it was a name issue. used IPaddress:8123 and i’m in

It would be helpful if you shared more details. You jumped from installing Docker to “can’t start HA”.


EDIT

Ninja’d by your post. Looks like you solved it yourself. Yes, the URL is the host’s address followed by the port number (8123). If your local DNS is configured appropriately, you can use the host’s name instead of its address.

Thanks All for the quick replies.

I’ll update this for uses that might have a Khadas VIM3 and would like to use it for HA.

Hi, i am planning to but this SBC. I want to use this to connect to around 120 wifi devices. Will this be able to connect to all devices with troubles ?

Hi, I’m considering Vim3 for my Hass setup. Can you recommend it? I wanted to go for Odroid n2+ as it’s officially supported but hard/expensive to get in my geo. Khadas seems even more equipped for less money but does it work fine?
