I had some requirements:
New kernel (preferable 6.x)
New distribution (Debian 10 is just about EOL)
Boot & Root on nvme drive (didnt want to rely on a sd card)
Home Assistant Supervised based installation (fully managed)
After lots of mucking around and dead ends, it turns out the process was really simple in the end. So I wanted to document it so others could use these steps if they need.
- Use Petitboot netboot to install Debian 11 following the bouncing ball (udhcp, netboot_default, exit)
- Install package from the repo "sudo apt-get install linux-image-6.2.0-odroid-arm64". At the time of writing Debian 11 is booting with a 5.x kernel. And 6.2 is in the repo. This will change over time.
- Confirm the machine is stable and doing what you need it to do.
- Follow these instructions to install HA https://peyanski.com/how-to-install-hom ... pendencies
