Go to console, switch to root user, and type

ramsave

What is the output?

(you can send this to support email)

 

Take into account that ramsave will not save... if the installation hard disk is mounted. To check this in terminal:

df -H

can i assume the size of ramroot will stay the same, with the same features enabled as previously?

 

i ordered the update to AL2.0 but (unusual for me) have been waiting for the dust to settle before jumping in on the (b)leading edge.

 

now that folks have some experience, let me ask the above question again regarding RAMROOT.

 

i am running hqplayer only and have 4G of RAM.

i understand there is a very small increase in size (about 0.1G) but apparently the ram defaults values are now different

and 4G will not work with the new default values.

 

what are the new recommended settings for ram values that will run AL2.0 with hqplayer only with 4G of RAM?

with the number of people ordering/using 4G of RAM, would it be worthwhile to have a menu option to enable this simply?

 

what exactly were the default values for RAM as used in the 1.0 version of AL?

For Jriver in LXQt you can install it on a terminal with 

pamac build jriver-media-center25

 

For headless ramroot with 4GB RAM, is not recommended and in most of cases impossible.  I have made a reduced size test image with only roonbridge installed that should work. 

Ramroot configuration at /etc/ramroot.conf should be changed from default values.

Note: in last menu update you can set the value of RAM and "virtual hard disk size" ZRAM

Could you do the same with ONLY MPD/UpmpdCli/ALSA and Installed and nothing else,

With file editor ROOT in Audiolinux menu go to /etc/pamac.conf

Edit the line

BuildDirectory = /

to

BuildDirectory = /tmp

Save with F2, exit with F10

 

 

Excellent support as always!!!

 

Many thanks.

 

I'm making a comparsion:

 

- Catalog programs: Roon, Jriver

- Player: Roon/Roonbridge, Roon/HPQE, JRiver/HQPE

 

Now I have the chance to choose what is best for me. I come from Windows (JRiver /Jplay).

Yes, very welcome. Minimalist basic distribution with extension options...

To make a small default image I must drop pamac AUR installer in favor of another one, yay

Next week I will do this.

We will learn to work with what will be needed when it produces the desired result.

Thanks Piero, starting ramroot has become even faster 🙂

 

Just one thing: when cloning to another drive the cloning script is changing the UUID of the UEFI partition, but the ramroot configuration file still has the previous one. So I had to fix this by following your advice to edit the ramroot.conf file so that it has

   mounts_zram=''

(empty instead of wrong UUID).

Maybe you can modify the script in the next menu?

Version 2.1.0 is out!


1) Full system update
2) New AUR package manager yay
3) Removed all audio applications installed. Now you can install only what you need, reducing the size of the image (2.7 GB after drive installation)
4) Menu updated to version 206 with option to set MPD music directory, "RAMROOT configuration" in System menu, UPDATE menu completely re-designed. Now you can install/reinstall/remove all audio applications.

 

Previous version 2.0.0 can be updated with the last menu 206

 

great work!

thanks for the quick update

@bodibill

I discovered that problem some days ago, so I added a line to fix this to clone script in previous menu version. Re-checking the line I see I have forgotten something...  just uploaded version 207 with the fix!

Thanks Piero. What is the easiest way to upgrade to version 207? Can it be done from the current 206 menu? When I try updating the Audiolinux menu, it stays at 206. Or do I need to download the latest 2.1.0?

After '6 Update Audiolinux menu' the result is still 'Audiolinux menu is now version 206'.

Try exit out of the menu and then back in to menu.  The menu should now say version 207.

Thanks, I tried that and it still says 'Audiolinux main menu - version 206' on top.

Should I download the latest image? That takes about two hours, hence my question.
