Hi All, 

 

Looking to set up Open Media Vault on an i5 but am a little confuse as to which installation package to download, the latest ones all seem to be AMD editions, am i missing something here?

AMD64 just means 64 Bit, it will work on Intel.

Many years ago, Intel attempted to kill off the x86 instruction set by releasing a 64 bit replacement that wasn't backwards compatible, which was dubbed "Itanium" and is usually abbreviated as IA-64. AMD released an alternative that was evolutionary, and allowed for 64 bit support with x86 backwards compatibility. IA-64 basically became a huge failure, and AMD64 became the defacto standard for 64bit x86, and a very highly embarrassed Intel ended up having to embrace AMD's extension to the processor design it had created. Intel's implementation of x86-64 is known as Intel 64, and is for most purposes compatible. Any "64bit" home computer you buy, be it Intel or AMD powered, is AMD64, because Intel were basically idiots ;-)

Not to be cheeky but is an Intel Core i5-2400 (3.10 GHz, 6MB cache, 4 cores) with 4Gb DDR3 Ram be sufficient for OMV?

i5-2400 is a beast for a NAS device, you should be good :) and the amount of ram is fine.

You could run Proxmox as your hypervisor and OMV as a VM on that processor. Just a bit short on RAM for virtualisation.

According to OMV's documentation, any processor supported by Debian, 256MiB of RAM, and a 2GiB drive are the minimum requirements, so I'd say yes.
