I've installed Hassio on an old mac mini. No VM

At first I’ve installed Debian 9.4.0 on the mini. (Dual-boot)
Then installed DietPi using this topic.

Install docker with DietPi-software

Then portainer:

sudo docker run -d -p 9000:9000 --restart always -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -v /opt/portainer:/data portainer/portainer


sudo apt-get install jq socat avahi-daemon
sudo -i
curl -sL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/hassio-build/master/install/hassio_install | bash -s

Which “old mini” did you use? Model / Year?

Upgraded to 4gb ram
And a Samsung EVO ssd

Cool, might have a go at this, stuck my old Mini back in the loft when hassio came out.

What was the reason for installing DietPi in your case?

I think i did that to keep my OS as minimal as possible.
I switched to an intel nuc 2 years ago.

Thanks Giel! Why did you switch to the Nuc? Was the Mac mini not cutting it for you?

My daughter uses the mini attached to a tv as a computer for school and as a media player.
