    Any solution to install Ubuntu to ARM machine?

    I made a 200GB boot volume, but df -show only 36gb

    @tetech said: Since it doesn't even get Ubuntu, let alone Debian, I plan to use it for production-grade idling for now.

    I hot-swapped mine to Alpine & Debian and use them for production DNS & HAproxy. Uptime is good.

    Of course I did the Debian install my the x86 VPS, but we're now talking about ARM, I'm not sure there's a simple way to swap to Debian just yet.

    Does IPv6 work for you in Zurich?
    If so, what did you do.

    It's nothing different. debootstrap works on aarch64 in the exactly same way as as x86_64. Luckily, the default Oracle Linux 7.9 image comes with a huge 8GB swap partition which we can easily turn into the new root. Debian sid is running just fine here!

    The only pitfall for me was that Oracle Linux's kernel uses 64k page size while Debian's uses 4k. That triggered (known) issues with btrfs... Other filesystems are fine.

    Is I/O supposed to be so slow? Also is it safe to use this trial? I mean if I create shit load of instances - will it go above the free 400 SGD (300 USD) and I have to pay a huge ass bill ?

    Anyone know the ram clock speed on the new Ampere virtual machines? I found an article on Oracle's website stating 3,200 MHz but that was for a different line of Ampere machines.

    I found options on the panel, but I don't have knowledge with IPv6 and I just suck on it.

    I was more worried about the bootloader setup, the Debian conversion script does all sorts of b/s to satisfy the EFI BIOS (making a special partition and whatnot), what do we need here? Good to know it at least uses GRUB, most or all ARM boards I used previously didn't.

    It suppose to be simple, even the IPv6 exists after reboot on the interface pre configured.
    However, something still blocks it or its not even routed.

    Lemme know if it works or not

    Enable IPv6 is easy they say, just RTFM.

    "If an IPv6 enabled client wants to talk to an IPv6 enabled internet endpoint, you can add a ::/0 rule with target as internet gateway in the routing table."

    On the GUI and in your 'Virtual Cloud Network', on the left side under 'Resources' is the 'Route Tables'

    Edit the 'Default route table for (VCN name here)' and add the route from there.

    Should be the same from the IPv4 entry as listed on there and on the manual.

    @Falzo is there any easy tutorial to install hestiacp on this ARM machine for 10 year old like me?

    hmm, I haven't tried myself on any ARM infra yet. (and oracle did never properly send me to psd2 verification with my CC so I gave up on their cloud stuff early)

    however as far as I know it is supported, but we have no prebuild packages, so you need to clone and compile yourself...
    good starting point for how to do that is reading from here: https://forum.hestiacp.com/t/arm-systems-support/894/16

    Thank you for the clarification. When I created a third instance (i.e. third boot volume) I could not do it without being charged. All are 50GB, which is the minimum.

    I deleted two of my VMs in Seoul for this ARM, but after all deleted I am unable to create new; "Out of capacity for shape VM.Standard.A1.Flex in availability domain NhNl:AP-SEOUL-1-AD-1. Please try again later. "

  • Are these arm vms also always free to use?

  • Can anyone share install script how to install install docker and docker compose on these arm vm? I tried some installation but it fails:

    Obviously you can't install an x64 image on a non-x64 architecture. You will need an arm image.

    Depends on the image, of course. Try https://hub.docker.com to start with.

  • You can install docker with this tutorial. (Check ARM64)
    https://docs.docker.com/engine/install/ubuntu/

    Docker compose

    curl -L https://github.com/linuxserver/docker-docker-compose/releases/download/1.29.2-ls40/docker-compose-arm64 | sudo tee /usr/local/bin/docker-compose >/dev/null
