What do you mean?

 

you can use big buffers in squeezelite... or use ramdiskmusic right now...

ramdiskmusic?

I can't find this option..

 

 

Also:

Would it be possible to use ramsystem for both LMS and BubbleUpnp?

At this point there is no such option in ramsystem settings..

Thank you!!!

Since I have updated to 2.13, the date of my system is broken. I can fix it manually but, after a couple of days, it is broken again. Right now (Wed 03 Jun 2020 08:25:38 AM CEST) it is:

rpi6 ~ # date
Sat 30 May 16:43:30 CEST 2020
rpi6 ~ #

Any idea how to fix this problem? Also, this morning the device was not connected to the wireless and I had to switch it off and on again. This never happened before.

Please, howto build module with this driver source ? 😉
If i do a "make", i have :

 make[1]: *** /lib/modules/4.14.114-GentooPlayer-MIN+/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.

I don't understand what you want to do?

Those drivers(V.2.0.) are already included in the kernel...

 

modinfo ax88179_178a | grep version

Yes, and it works.

Only this distribution allows you to play DSD from HQP without pops and cracks.
I just wanted to test if the latest version (1.20) allows to go further (rares dropouts on DSD 256).

(V.2.0 is an Allo special nurmerotation, not from ASIX).

I can compile a kernel with those drivers, which you could test as soon as I have some time...

which kernel do you usually use?

Actually .. the minimum 4.14.114-GentooPlayer-MIN+ 

Thanks Antonello
 

PS : I admit that I chose this kernel because it works correctly for me (Allo USBridge / RME ADI-2 DAC and NAA).
There are so many kernel, I don't know on which criteria to choose. Others would be more effective (differences in sound)?

After a few more tests I am sorry to say that I have switched back to my Raspbian Lite dedicated system. GenTooPlayer 2.13 does not work reliably in my network, either the date is broken or upmpdcli needs to be restarted manually after each reboot or both. Booting is slow and the web interface is sluggish. Perhaps something went wrong when upgrading from 2.12 to 2.13 but then the same problems occurred months ago when I was updating from 2.11 to 2.12. Raspbian Lite boots in a few seconds and is rock solid. After days of inactivity, UpMpd is immediately available and responsive as soon as I open a control point. I will come back to GenTooPlayer in a few weeks/months and then report my findings. Thanks for your support! Best, nbpf

Upgrading from 2.13 to 2.14 has fixed the date problems and the long booting times, see 

There is still the problem that I need a file with 

rc-service upmpdcli restart

in a file in /etc/local.d for upmpdcli to become visible in my control points. This suggests the there is still something fishy in the boot sequence.

in a few days I'll put online version 2.15, I suggest you to start directly from that one, with a new installation...

On version 2.14 you added the GP icon that was a fine surprise but ... if I run GP in ram (mode 2 on rpi4, from usb) the icon disappears from the control point.

I suspect this is due to the path where the icon is stored as when I did myself the modification using the same path of the standard upmpdcli.conf  the icon visibility was not impacted running GP in ram.

Hope you can fix it in the next 2.15

Thank you

I'll do that, thanks. I have noticed that upgrading from 2.13 to 2.14 was quite slow, is there a way to speed up the process by uninstalling software which is not needed? Also, for maintenance, it would be great to have emacs (emacs-nox, the one without support for X) beside nano. Any idea how to install it? Thanks for the support, Best, nbpf

whether it's slow depends on how many packages it has to update, but it's not a problem you can do something else while it's doing it, like listening to music.
It is even slower if the CPU is set to a lower frequency.

I prefer Nano, but

I have to revise this assessment, after GenTooPlayer has been running over night, the date is 7 hours late!
