GentooPlayer


Recommended Posts

Well the Sparky as an NAA works just like with DietPi which is the DAC is recognized as Denafrips HiRes but when playing the audio comes out as twice or three times the speed, so that means the driver used on the Gentoo kernel is probably the same as the DietPi one. So I guess it is a dead end for now to run on Sparky.

I'm going to try it next on x86 architecture

 

Thank you

you unfortunately etcher does not install on internal hard drives ...

to install on a ssd you have to continue in this way:

boot the pc with a live linux (any) put on usbstick, it could also be gentooplayer-xfce put on usbstick with etcher...

 

download the image

 

open a terminal and become root (in gentoo to become root just give the command "su" and then type the password)

 

then take over

 

xzcat /path-to-file/file.img.xz > /dev/sdX && sync

sdX is the disk where to install

example sda, sdb, sdc, etc.

 

Be careful to choose the right disc... the disc is overwritten...

 

How should the disk be partitioned before starting?

It doesn’t matter as that command is just overwriting the entire disk including any existing partitions. Although I would use dd to overwrite an existing disk with an image.

Actually you can format an SSD as Fat32 and treat it just like an SD card.

you can also use dd, however the final result does not change.

xz --decompress /path/to/file.img.xz | dd of=/dev/sdX

or

sudo xz --decompress /path/to/file.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdX

Yes, that looks better to me, and you can use a block size option like ‘bs=4M’ with dd.

Hi,

I have tried to install  Gentoo player on my USB Bridge Signature.

 

Used the program Balena Etcher for Mac OS Catalina.

Downloaded the image GentoPlayerRpi64-191231.img.xz the 64 bit version.

Everything went well. 

 

Tried to access as describe by means of SSH via terminal  ssh [email protected]p-gentooplayer .

Or with command via my browser Safari or Firefox to open web interface by means of GentooPlayerRpi64:5000

But nothing happens what do I wrong ?

Regards, Andreas

I've found these address methods don't work very well on Mac.  When using SSH, be sure to use "[email protected]" (use exact IP address) or in browser, type "XXX.XXX.X.XXX:5000" in the address bar.  See if that works.

Same here, I always use the actual ip address from my macbook and I can SSH and browser connect fine.

Either connect a monitor to the Sig, or use your router or an ip sniffer program to get the ip address.

Yep.

 

On a mac, LanScan is a nice app for showing the IP addresses of devices on your network.

Hi,

bridged by an Mac mini which has an connection to a switch and than router.

 

I cannot see any activity when I have started / booted  the Gentoo on Usbridge Signature.

I case of DiepPi always to be seen in the finder as activity.

 

But why  I cannot see by means of web browser the Gentoo screens as demonstrated on yr webpage? That is something else than trying to access via SSH the program?

Doesn't the same device (CEM Solutions Pvt Ltd) show up when you boot with the GentooPlayer SD card?  It should.

 

Note the IP address and use it to ssh or access the web interface.

 

For ssh - ssh [email protected]     (password is raspiroot)

For web interface - http://ipaddress:5000

as a test.

 

open up the terminal app on the Mac.

 

Type the following command ssh [email protected]

 

The Mac will ask you to save the SSH key; type YES

 

That should get you on to the Gentoo Player box and run the menus from there.  

 

IF that is working then we are close to getting you playing music.

You can also try in safari to type http://10.0.1.18:5000  into the address bar and see if it responds.

Ah, running a bridge is tricky.  I have a reserved address for my Mac Mini and when I switched to a bridge for the Allo, I had to manually enter the reserved DHCP address on the Mac.  For some reason that prompted Moode Audio to connect to the bridge connection.  Gentooplayer worked as well but there may be some trick to getting GP to recognize the bridge as a connection.

Went through the thread, it seems with Roon Squeezelite is the one to use. Will start testing different combinations on a fanless Celeron nuc

 

I go back and forth between Squeezelite and Squeezelite-R2.  Lately I have been using Squeezelite-R2 more.

 

Just make sure that if you use Squeezelite, you set "Use FLAC Compression" to No (in Roon) for the device (hit Show Advanced to see this).   With Squeezelite-R2 you don't have to do that (but I do it anyway).

Do you know what the difference is?  Does it work with Roon?  Does it sound different to you??

 

Easy to test!!
