Installation issues on Hyper-V
Hi, I tried now for 2 days to somehow install openflixr in Hyper-V, but there seems always be some kind of problem. I tried it now in several combinations to get it to run.
Oh and I am a Linux noob, so if I made a step wrong please tell me, as the chances are rather high :)
- at the beginning I convert the vhd into a vhdx. I was being told it has a little better performance.
- after the initial boot of the official hyperv image is to let it wait until there seems to be no HDD and CPU usage anymore
- change the keyboard layout to German (as my keyboard is German :D ) with:
dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration service keyboard-setup restart
- run "sudo updateopenflixr"
And there the issues are starting. It seems that it is in an update loop as it tries to install java8, which can't be found and there is an 404 error at the download. I canceled it with CTRL+C after 30 minutes of looping.
I also tried to manual update it with apk-get update and upgrade, it did not help and even threw more errors. At first I ignored it and run the setup, it crashed always at step 8 I think without any more information of why it crashed or maybe if it's done doing the setup. I didn't knew that there was a progress bar later so I proceeded with the web-part and started mounting my NAS etc. There the issues started to accumulate, as it got 403 errors and other stuff in the main site of openflixr. Ok, I stated from scratch again and thought that the culprit maybe is java.
Tried to fix the java issue by myself, removed the old java8 and the repository for apk and installed the latest one.
So far so good, started again the updater, could not remember if there were any issues, as I was long away from the machine. Logged again in and started the console setup. proceeded as usual and suddenly I saw a purple progress bar which was counting the time up. Never saw that before and I thought "okay...maybe it is configuring something, although the CPU and HDD usage is low" and I waited. It stopped after I think 15 minutes with an error and linked to your troubleshooting page. I created the logs as mentioned in the link, but to be honest, the logs are not that great. I uploaded them anyways, maybe you can do with it more :D
Ok I can't upload it, it throw an Error 400 in the editor, alternative:
My question is now, what is the official way of installing it and how does a successful installation process look like? I could not find any videos or even tutorials of openflixr of how to install the newer version. It would help (at least me :) ) to see at what step I am either doing something wrong or something is failing. I do not know if the purple loading bar is doing anything as I only triggered it once.
Is openflixr even supported on Hyper-V? Has someone got it to work on a Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V and are there some extra steps needed for that hypervisor?
Oh and the hardware specs for the VM are:
- all 4 cores (Intel i5 2500)
- 8196 MB RAM (though using dynamic RAM from 512-8196 so save some of the RAM)
- An unfortunate slow cheap consumer HDD, as it is a rather old host system. I also tried it running from an USB 3 flash drive to increase the IOP (poor version of a SSD :( ) as I thought that maybe the HDD is too slow and the services are not getting started fast enough.
I hope this is enough to start with it and experiment a little.
tl;dr: What is the proper way to initial start, setup and run openflixr?
Thanks and I am looking forward to replace my actual non virtualized plex server with your solution :D
