Inspired by the Rock on ESXi post, tonight, I successfully managed to install ROCK on ProxmoxVE, which is a very powerful virtual machine platform, I’m using it for my home network and labs.
There are several tips for people want to try it:
- you can install via real USB stick, flashed with ROCK img. Just passthrough the USB disk to the VM.
- you need connect a physical keyboard to the host machine running ProxmoxVE, then passthrough the USB keyboard to VM as well. You will need it input the 1 in the select screen for installation.
- You need two disks, 1 is for installing ROCK, another one is for music file storage. both disk should be connected to VM as SATA disk. ROCK won’t be able to recognize SCSI disk.
that’s it. next is to find a good USB bridge.
