Hello together and and happy and healthfull new year !
Yesterday the parcel with Helios 4 is be well received. Is there any
hint to install Fedora (or maybe CentOS) on it?
fedora works well on the helios4, it can however only control one of
the two fansright now due to the upstream kernel only supporting one
pwm device on a GPIO bank and both fans are on one bank of GPIO pins.
grab the image you prefer to use, minimal or server, I personally am
using server and install uboot-images-armv7 on your local machine.
install the image onto your sdcard where sdX is the device your sdcard
shows up as
xzcat Fedora-Image.xz| dd of=/dev/sdX bs=4MiB
then install u-boot into the card
dd if=/usr/share/uboot/helios4/u-boot-spl.kwb of=/dev/sdX bs=512
you could use gparted to resize the rootfs or just boot and resize on
the system when running.
Then boot the system, if you use server you can then manage the disks
you put into the nas through cockpit. I am planning to package up the
config file for fan control and a preset to enable fancontrol so you
can install a hardware enablement package to have things just work. I
am also planning on gettinga u-boot build for the spi flash and
enabling booting from sata. On mine I have moved / to the internal
drives and only have /boot on the sdcard. there is a kernel bug that
causes the lm75 module to not autoload, it is needed for the fancontrol
to work also.
