RPi 4 and dockerized Hass.io

For a long time I’ve been using Ubuntu with Docker for my HomeAssistant setup, but when trying to get that working on my Pi 4 I realized that my regular «install docker, install portainer and grab hassio» did not work. I could easily just grab the HassOS-image for RPi 4, but I want an OS with a few more options, as well as running containers outside the ones integrated with HomeAssistant. Having the 7 inch touch screen working is also nice 🙂

The process is quite simple

Assuming you have raspbian (lite or desktop – doesn’t matter), make sure everything is updated (apt upgrade ; apt upgrade -y). Then

$ sudo apt-get install -y software-properties-common apparmor-utils apt-transport-https avahi-daemon ca-certificates curl dbus jq network-manager socat
$ sudo systemctl disable ModemManager
$ sudo curl -fsSL get.docker.com | sh
$ sudo apt-get update [probably not necessary...]

$ sudo curl -sL "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/home-assistant/supervised-installer/master/installer.sh" >> hassio_install.sh

 

Open this file in an editor and edit the section relevant for the RPi hardware.

"armv7l")

if [ -z $MACHINE ]; then
error "Please set machine for $ARCH"
fi
HOMEASSISTANT_DOCKER="$DOCKER_REPO/$MACHINE-homeassistant"
HASSIO_DOCKER="$DOCKER_REPO/armv7-hassio-supervisor"

The required changes are in bold

if [ -z $MACHINE ]; then
error "Please set machine for $ARCH"
fi
HOMEASSISTANT_DOCKER="$DOCKER_REPO/raspberrypi3-homeassistant"
HASSIO_DOCKER="$DOCKER_REPO/armhf-hassio-supervisor"

Save the file and run

$ sudo bash hassio_install.sh -m raspberrypi4

This will force you to type «not supported» in order to get you going.

root@raspberrypi:~# docker ps

2d5fc6976bb8 homeassistant/armhf-hassio-supervisor "/init" 41 seconds ago Up 39 seconds hassio_supervisor

This should hopefully do the trick and leave you with a real OS and a dockerized Hass.io on your RPi 4

Note – this method is NOT supported, and may work today, and maybe not tomorrow.

  1. Didn’t work for me. Any idea how to get rid of these containers? A systemctl service is protecting them.

      • The systemctl-file is located in /etc/systemd/system/hassio-supervisor.service. Try «systemctl stop hassio-supervisor.service» and «systemctl disable hassio-supervisor.service».
        What problems did you run into? Took me a few minutes to get it running on the latest Raspbian without any issues. I noticed that the hassio_install.sh is slightly changed now compared to May ’20, and the only change you need to do is in line 171, and it should look like this
        HASSIO_DOCKER=»$DOCKER_REPO/armhf-hassio-supervisor»

  2. Currently running Hass.Io on ESXI, but ZigBee/Zwave sensors, MQTT and NodeRed on the RPI. No real need to move it to ESXI, but it gives me the option of a full backup and replication to another server. More or less «because I can» rather than not trusting the RPI
