PiBox OS#

The OS we maintain and distribute is a Ubuntu Server 21.04 image with some minimal modifications:

  • Kubernetes & the KubeSail Agent, which provides a consistent API for installing software via templates
  • SATA Kernel modules (These are disabled by default in the base Ubuntu Raspberry Pi image)
  • Display kernel modules, for the 1.3” front panel display
  • Common unix tools: curl, vim, git

Install microk8s#

MicroK8s is our prefered Kubernetes distribution. Its maintained by Canonical, is updated regularly, and performs well on low-power devices, such as Raspberry Pis.

sudo snap install microk8s --classic
# Enable basics and stats
sudo microk8s.enable dns storage prometheus
