I tried this and don't see the 460.x driver after issuing $ubuntu-drivers devices

I saw that 460 was out for Windows and posted this before I tried.

 

We had discussed the preferred methods of installing CUDA previously. It looks like, at the present time, the driver for Linux can be installed by installing CUDA 11.2.

 

@Miska is there a current alternative?

You can download the driver installer from Nvidia page, that is one option.

 

Another easy way is to add the CUDA repository using the network installation package, but not install full CUDA, just the display driver from the repository.

Aha,

 

The highest driver level reported in

 

$ ubuntu-drivers devices

 

is nvidia-driver-455

 

Its possible to add 

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

 

and get the experimental/beta drivers

alternatively the driver can be downloaded from the nvidia site and installed.

 

(just so folks know)

 

 

Create file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cuda.list with following content:

deb http://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu2004/x86_64 /

 

Then just do usual "sudo apt update" and then you can at minimum "sudo apt install nvidia-dkms-460". Or using meta package to pull full display driver set "sudo apt install cuda-drivers" and stay up to date.

Hi all hq fans.

I'm trying to get the latest hqplayer to work on a simple win 10 machine  that will be connected to a antipodes dx,the thing is that i can't get the hqplayer to start on the win 10 machine,all i get is hqplayer4 won't start,any ideas ??

 

What kind of computer is it (CPU model etc)? When starting HQPlayer Desktop, do you get splash screen or anything else show up? Display drivers are up to date?

Tried your method and got this after "sudo apt update"

Ahh, yeah, you'll need to add a repository key as well. So you need to do this as well before "sudo apt update":

 

sudo apt-key adv --fetch-keys https://developer.download.nvidia.com/compute/cuda/repos/ubuntu2004/x86_64/7fa2af80.pub

And no HQPlayer before on that computer? A bit of a mystery if nothing happens when you select HQPlayer from the Start-menu.

 

Is it stock a Windows 10 without any modifications or "optimizations"?

Yup it is a standard win 10 copy with no optimizer installed.Got it up running for a while but when trying to change some filter settings it was back to not responding again,i use it for music only with your software and roon core with hq naa on my antipodes dx connected via a network cable.

Good news for HQPlayer Embedded users: Embedded can work fine with LMS.

In reality, this is a procedure I already reported last year but it presented some difficulties, however now there are updates and the problems have been overcome, as reported by Unixman user on Italian site NextHardware.

Quote

Big news!

Just tested this configuration:

OS: Linux Mint 20 Ulyana (Cinnamon ed.) ~ = Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

LMS: v8.1.1 ~ 1609139162

UPnPBridge: 1.45 (current version on the official LMS repository)

Embedded HQPlayer: 4.18.0-50 (**)
...it works perfectly!!!

 

Tested both with local files and with Qobuz, Tidal, various "radios", etc. (at least for Qobuz, proxy streaming must be enabled).

Therefore it has been eliminated the last little difficulty that was left (manual installation of the very old version of UPnPBridge, which among other things sooner or later risked having compatibility issues with new versions of LMS and OS).

Now the setup is really trivial.


(**) hqplayerd is not updated to the latest version due to CUDA compatibility problems with the "old" (so to speak) video card installed on that system. As for the interaction with the new UPnPBridge, although obviously I can't say for sure, I expect later versions to work too. Try it, and post the results ...

bad news for hqplayer embedded fans .... if you use it as an upnp renderer (with minimserver) unfortunately the gapless doesn't work.
Although this is an indispensable feature for an optimal listening, Jussi's diagnosis is "forget upnp" if you want the gapless, a statement in stark contrast to what is described in the description of the hqplayer embedded features .... “It can also function as a UPnP AV Renderer”

That's great, but can it really work gapless? Guess not..

Can HQPlayer OS be installed on internal pc hard drive instead of booting from usb  thumb drive or sd card ?

 

Yes, you can dump it on internal drive as well. Similar ways as to any other media.

That's the best way to do it ... and works! Consider not hardlinking to  librocfft.so ( if no AMD GPU is present)
