I am thinking of moving from the Home Assistant OS install to a supervised installed due to problems with updates of the HAOS after 5.4 causing freeze issues. I have read your guides on installing HA with Debian and also with the now unsupported RPI OS.
I am confused on which is a better option and in hoping for some good advise.
- I see that Debian is fully supported by Home Assistant. What does this mean, other then the document stating that this is the supported install?
I have been using the SSD boot which for me works great up to OS 5.4. Any release after this causes Pi Freeze issues. Reporting issues on Github was met with a response that this is an unsupported install. I then changed to the Spit Sd / SSD install with the HA OS which is said to be fully supported and I and many others have the same Pi freeze issues. This has been ongoing since November.
I have seen comments on new Debian releases that broke Home Assistant. Not sure how releases of Home Assistant and Debian are tested to ensure that HA works correctly?
RPI OS is written for the Pi and it is definitely fully supported as an OS for the Pi. It is a customized Debian that is optimized for the PI. Why wouldn’t this be the best OS to use for the Pi and to install the HA supervisor?
I do see that new releases may be an issue but not sure why this is worse than new Debian releases?
Advice from experienced supervised users would be greatly appreciated.
