Please describe the problem you’ve encountered in detail:

  • Description: I installed the latest version of Fydeos for the Orange pi 5 plus to an SD card. Everything went well. I can install and activate both the Linux and Android environments and managed to get stuff working pretty easily within the size and speed limits of an SD card. However, things fall apart with installation to an NVME drive. Fydeos boots fine and the Android environment seems to work well. The Linux environment installation fails seemingly after download (the bar moves 40% or so and it takes a bit) and before it starts to run the VM. I get the vague error: failed to download the virtual machine. If I retry, it fails immediately with the same message. This leaves a penguin instance in the terminal that fails to run and I can’t seem to clear with vmc stop or destroy. This happens via Wi-Fi or over a reliable Ethernet connection.

Is this a known issue or are there any workarounds?

:computer:System & Device Information

  • Hardware & System Configuration: Orange Pi 5 plus

    • Processor:Rockchip 3588
    • RAM: 26gb
    • FydeOS Version: 17.0
  • Relevant System Logs:

    • Open the Chromium browser and enter /var/log/messages to retrieve logs.
    • Log Details: Nothing relevant to my eye, but I can run commands and post if necessary.

The log is needed to analyze the specific problem.

I managed to figure it out. I was flashing the image to SD card, then using the installer from the FydeOS app store to install to the NVME. This results in a broken Linux environment that cannot download/load.

Flashed directly to the NVME and everything works great.


I encountered the same problem. Here are some log:
