    thin-pool target support missing from kernel?

    The thin-volume support seems to be removed from pve-kernel starting with version 4.13. On my pve-kernel 4.10 it is included. But thin volumes are working normally after kernel is started. The only problem is, that the kernel can't boot from thin-volumes. I don't know, why it's removed from kernel?

    [SOLVED] Headless Proxmox possible?

    I have running Proxmox since version 3.4 running on different devices like AMD GX-412TC SOC or AMD G-T40E Processor, which are embedded devices without any graphics engine. They have only a serial console for local management. It works perfectly without any issues.
