Installing Home Assistant Supervised on Debian 10

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f7394156fd0>

It looks like this install method won’t work on a 32 bit machine, unless perhaps there is extensive tinkering. In fact, I cannot find any install method, even for Core, that will work on my netbook. I’d really appreciate confirmation of this, then I can stop my search and consider getting a 64 bit device.

I just tried ‘sudo apt-get install docker-ce’ on my debian 10 32-bit : no available installation candidate.

There are some scripts on the net to build docker yourself on a 32-bit machine, but as you said : extensive tinkering.

I enjoy the tinkering bit. My concern is that once it’s up and running, an update (which are pretty frequent) to the system could break it, necessitating another bout of find and fix.

Docker does require a 64 bit installation. You’re better off getting your hands on something that can support it properly from the bottom up. This install choice is already finicky.

If so, How am I running Docker on my Raspbian RPi? Do you mean a Debian 64 bit installation?

If so that should be in the ADR as a requirement (I don’t remember seeing it - but could be wrong).

Docker requires 64bit on intel/amd. On RbPi it runs on 32bit.

this installation method is not officially supported

I think you can now change this to this the only officially supported way to run supervised on a non-hassbian OS ;-). Your install method might differ a bit from what they put into the official docs and the installer they make, but I’d bet it is pretty damned close for someone who just has to try now. At least it hits all the supported components.

this should be part of the main procedure … thanks!

Meant to say at the time, the precise lines I added were not in my file. The lines that were commented out were a little different, as in my pasted text.

[Error] Please set machine for armv7l
I get this when trying to run your last script on a RPi 4B

The guide is made for Intel/AMD Machines.

Replace

curl -sL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Kanga-Who/home-assistant/master/supervised-installer.sh" | bash -s

with

curl -sL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Kanga-Who/home-assistant/master/supervised-installer.sh" | bash -s -- -m raspberrypi4

I am also interested in installing Home Assistant Supervised via Docker. I tried the old script (install on generic Linux) which was comparable to your script. However, I don’t like the whole systemctl part, as I have OMV also installed on the system.

I found on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/homeassistant/comments/ghih2y/new_path_for_ha_on_docker/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf), that it is also possible to install the Linux dependencies but instead of running the script, running the following command:

docker run --name hassio_supervisor
–detach
–restart always
–privileged
–security-opt apparmor:unconfined
–security-opt seccomp=unconfined
-v /run/docker.sock:/run/docker.sock
-v /home/USER/ha:/data
-e SUPERVISOR_SHARE=/home/USER/ha
-e SUPERVISOR_NAME=hassio_supervisor
-e HOMEASSISTANT_REPOSITORY=homeassistant/amd64-homeassistant
homeassistant/amd64-hassio-supervisor

Can anyone say if the missing systemctl part can cause major problems? What are the advantages of the systemctl actions?

Just wanted to add my thanks for this guide.
I installed HA Supervised in a Docker container on Debian with only a few small dependency issues, but this helped massively for someone who is new to Debian and HA, so thanks for the effort. Really please with my set up and it’s been rock solid for weeks now.

I bought a Wyse 5020 Thin Client I want to run as dedicated Home Assistant. It is 4GB memory and 32 GB drive. Would this method of install be a good solution for it?

Yep, that machine should work well.

I Just rebuild an upgraded server, but when trying to install, the supervisor cannot pull in the other docker containers for some reason, inside the supervisor i can ping google etc… Any ideas?

Any ideas would be appreciated, as installing supervised has become really tedious, missing official documentation, a defective official script, … One would start to think they’re still trying to kill it off? :wink:

So with this configuration I will be able to use ssh and samba to manage Home Assistant. If I need to reboot the thin client is that possible.

I am getting the same error.

Looks like something in the script or the version json file is broken at the moment.

It appears the installer script was updated about 20hrs ago by the dev team.

I’m updating the info on my end now, should work again shortly.
