Installed Fedora 27 and Amahi 11 on an HP microserver with 4 GB RAM and a 1 TB system disk. Previously running Amahi 10 on the same box. Clean install with no errors reported. After hda-install command and final reboot all appears ok until trying to access the dashboard. Get the 'The Dashboard has encountered an exception!' screen. The 1 TB Disk is partitioned with / having most of the space, swap at 3.86 GB, and boot 1 GB. Results of df -h are shown below.

Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
devtmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev
tmpfs 1.9G 0 1.9G 0% /dev/shm

tmpfs 382M 0 382M 0% /run/user/1000

I've run the install twice with the same results.

Downloaded iso again and burned new disc. Reinstalled with the same partition parameters as before. Same result. Installed again giving / only 100 GB partiton size. Boot and swap remained the same. Worked this time. Was able to get to the dashboard. So, / partition size matters? What is the maximum size?

#4 Updated by bt107 over 3 years ago

Getting a lot of cifs errors. For example:

CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -2

This happens for each share in the pool.

Sorry. Meant to post the cifs errors in the forum, not here.

#6 Updated by bigfoot65 over 3 years ago

The Samba issue has been fixed. There was a file missing from the Greyhole package.

#7 Updated by gruvtech over 2 years ago

Same issue as above. 240GB disk previously running Amahi 10 with no issues. Assigned 60GB for root, 1024MB for boot, 8GB for Swap. per the screenshot in instructions with edit due to having plenty of available space.

Clean install with Fedora 27 Net Install DVD. Can't access the Dashboard
