Anoyher and probably more viable solution than the above workaround (ip addresses can change at any time) can be found here.
How can I get docker-compose to work and avoid the “You are running an unsupported installation” ?
Had the system running fine, then tried to do `sudo apt install docker-compose’
Now I have the “You are running an unsupported installation” and afaik I will not be able to do updates when this message are active?
you can’t avoid unsupported if you install compose. But that won’t prevent you getting updates as normal. Even if you get the unhealthy message as well there is a cli command to tell HA to ignore it and you will get updates as normal.
After I did the
sudo apt install docker-compose, my NetworkManager got screwed up. Are there any other way to get docker-compose installed to avoid messing with NetworkManager?
btw; do you also have the CLI command you did mention (for my own records) ?
Look at Section 4 paragraph 3 within the OP.
Somewhere around Section 2.1 the guide needs to be updated.
Debian is now shipped with ifupdown. This will interfere with network manager.
If the following message is shown when installing network manager:
The following network interfaces were found in /etc/network/interfaces
which means they are currently configured by ifupdown:
If you want to manage those interfaces with NetworkManager instead
remove their configuration from /etc/network/interfaces.
Then the file:
/etc/network/interfaces needs to be edited. In my case the lines with
eno1 (my ethernet) needs to be commented out, before proceeding. If this is NOT done, the machine will crash and nothing will work.
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eno1 <-- This should be commented out
iface eno1 inet dhcp <-- This should be commented out
Remember to reboot before proceeding.
ifupdown has been shipped with Debian since ages (a quick lookup brought me back to Debian 8 Jessie (released April 2015).
I don’t know what went wrong with your installation to show that described message. Just last week I installed a new Mini PC using this excellent guide and all went smooth without any errors.
I followed kanga_who’s guide step-by-step except for:
apt-get install ... avahi-daemon ...
Going back to the topic, did you remove the wired eth0 after installing Debian (after Section 1) and continued with Section 2 of the guide by using WLAN? There are indeed reports about ifupdown seemingly freezing the boot process for quite some time if no Ethernet cable is plugged in but this should has already been fixed ages ago according to the bug reports.
The comunity guide suggests to continue remotely only after having completed Section 3.2 which in my understanding should be the earliest to remove the wired connection and continue remotely which can also be through WLAN (which is discouraged all over the forum anyway).
Other than the above the whole installation process is working flawlessly as long as one strictly sticks to Jason’s guide as I just went through the whole process (except for installing avahi-daemon) a couple of days ago.
I’ve used to run Debian on my RPI4 and have never seen ifupdown on that. Could be that the vanilla Debian for RPI don’t ship with ifupdown?
I’ve always been running wired. As soon as the HA install is finished, the connection dies and I get a ton of DNS errors in the log, but if I comment out those two lines, everything is working perfect (except I can’t set a fixed ip in the frontend)
So I should just omit the avahi? or is there anything else to be installed instead?
Thanks for reminding me, need to update the guide.
Definitely. Probably that will also fix those DNS errors you are describing without having to tamper with “interfaces”:
Since we are using systemd-resolved the reversal conclusion is to disable/remove the avahi-daemon:
That didn’t help unfortunately
Don’t know if this has something to do with it

Could that be something messing it up? or is that just a label that the system gives the connection?
Maybe my post here helps?
Ok, as I’ve got some clearance on how to resolve healthy/unsupported, I still would like to know how I would get the

@kanga_who are you able to assist me on this? Great tutorial by the way
No, I don’t use it and it’s out of the scope of the guide.
can someone please take a look at this thread?
Installed HA using this but I have a problem with the IP address assignment.
Once I installed Debian 11, IP is being assigned by my modem without any issues (tried host restart too), but once I install HA and restart the host, it is not being assigned an IP address. Solved this by assigning a static IP address, but DNS is still not working.
Any help would be appreciated
@Tamsy has already responded to you in that thread.
yeah he is very helpful… but did not work but now i am seeing that he replied again. will check again later on cause i am out now. also any ideas related why the nuc is not getting an ip from the modem once ha installed?
Why (If I have home assistant supervised) I can’t update my Open Media Vault, Docker and Portainer?
Any solution to this issue?
Why not . ?
