Install NEMS Linux on an Indiedroid Nova
What You Need
Indiedroid Nova SBC
16 GB or higher fast MicroSD card
A reliable, high-quality power supply for your Nova, preferably connected to a UPS
An Ethernet cable
While this video was created for the Raspberry Pi version, it is exactly the same process for Indiedroid Nova (just use the correct download for the Indiedroid Nova).
Install NEMS Linux to MicroSD
Download the latest version of NEMS Linux from https://nemslinux.com/
Install the Raspberry Pi Imager from https://www.raspberrypi.com/software/
Click “Choose OS”
Click “Choose Custom” at the bottom of the list
Browse to your downloaded copy of NEMS Linux
Click “Choose Storage”
Insert your MicroSD card or USB Flash Drive
Carefully select your MicroSD card or USB Flash Drive
Connect the MicroSD card or USB Flash Drive containing NEMS Linux to your Indiedroid Nova
Connect the gigabit Ethernet port of the Indiedroid Nova to your network using an Ethernet cable
Power on the Indiedroid Nova to boot your NEMS Server
Wait approximately 5 minutes to perform first-boot operations
During the first-boot operation, the filesystem will be automatically resized to the capacity of your storage and the NEMS Server will reboot.
After the first-boot operations have completed, visit https://nems.local/ in your web browser. If name resolution doesn’t work, try the IP address of your NEMS device instead, which you can find in your router’s DHCP leases table, or on a TV connected to your NEMS Server’s HDMI port.
Install to eMMC
Now that you are booted into your NEMS Server via the MicroSD card, you may choose to utilize the Indiedroid Nova’s built-in eMMC storage (more reliable, faster).
Open the browser-based terminal in Cockpit or SSH to your NEMS Server.
Type sudo nems-install and follow the prompts.
