Audiolinux Server configurations, Software, Hardware, and Listening Impressions

Recommended Posts

Thank you all for the suggestions.  I have tried all your suggestions and still can't get both on the network at the same time.

(Except - Select static IP addresses outside of the DHCP range) 

I'll keep at it!

Audiolinux newbee here.

 

If I want to run Roonserver on my PC under AL, which version of AL should I get?  If there is a guide on how to run Roonserver under AL I am fine reading and learning on my own.

 

Also, given that I have only worked with Windows OS before, will AL automatically recognize my jcat network and USB cards?  Is it basically plug and play under linux?

AL comes with Roonserver, you will usually have to update Roonserver the first time it runs. USB and wired Ethernet should be recognized during initial boot, if not contact Piero

for advice. Best to get your setup as you want it before trying RAM mode. The defaults for user prompt timeouts can make boot slow (~2 minutes) when running headless

Thanks. Is there a different version for headless than not?  I usually set things up with a monitor and keyboard and then go headless once it is running.

From their site, I've used both headless and LXQT.  LXQT is a user friendly GUI for those like me who don't know Linux and find editing files in headless painful 😉


Audiolinux lxqt 1 year support with image            $ 59
Audiolinux headless 1 year support with image        $ 59
Audiolinux Raspberry 1 year support with image*      $ 59
Audiolinux lxqt unlimited time support               $ 119
Audiolinux headless unlimited time support           $ 119
Audiolinux all versions unlimited time support**     $ 219
Audiolinux USB stick/SD card with shipping           $ 119

I am trying to get AL going but I am hitting a wall.

 

I created a USB drive with the version 420 image and booted into it.  AL is running off the USB.

 

What I want to do is created a bootable SSD so I am not booting to the USB.  I went through the AL guide but whatever command I am typing is not working.

 

Can someone tell me if I am going down the right path to creat the bootable SSD with AL?

 

TIA.

If you have a drive "toaster" its straight forward, just put the SSD in the external SATA drive adaptor and use your disk flash program to flash the SSD with AL instead of a USB stick.

AL may have a menu option but I haven't been down that path

Euphony after registration includes a system transfer option so that you can move from USB stick to SSD/Optane disk without losing your settings, have used that without problems.

The menu option  7 "COPY/BACKUP current installation to another drive" should do all automatically and also save your settings.

I did exactly that but the BIOS does not think the drive has an OS on it.

 

What is odd is that I can boot from the USB stick, made with Rufus, which shows up as UEFI:Sandisk in my BIOS boot menu.  However, when I follow the same procedure in Rufus to create a bootable SSD it does not show up as UEFI in my BIOS.  I set the BIOS to boot from legacy or UEFI but the fact that the partition table is GPT I think it is looking for a UEFI drive.

 

I am stumped.

Audiolinux will boot only in UEFI mode.

 

Check with

sudo fdisk -l 

the partitions on SSD drive

You should have something similar to this:

 

Device       Start      End  Sectors  Size Type
/dev/sde1     2048  1001471   999424  488M EFI System
/dev/sde2  1001472 12265471 11264000  5.4G Linux filesystem


The best method however for copying to SSD is the menu option  7 "COPY/BACKUP current installation to another drive" This way the partition will be extended to cover the drive size.

 

Also remember to power-off, detach USB stick and boot, since you cannot have 2 UEFI partitions.

 

Finally check http://www.audio-linux.com/html/boot.html

hi

 

is HQPlayer 4.14.0 available?

in general, are these available when Jussi posts them or do you have to link it first?

I must upload first the archlinux PKGBUILD script.

Just updated now at version 4.14.0

You can use the option in the Update menu.

You can check version on console with

To see all messages you can install with the command

yay -Sy hqplayer-embedded --noconfirm

 

Just installed:

you might need to change hardware or disabled to software in .mpdconf  to get volume control on your app .

 

audiilinux menu .. system menu .. file editor .. find the mpd.conf file . F4 to edit f2 to save F10 to exit .

I'm looking for the hqplayer readme file on my Audio Linux box and not finding anything in /usr/share/hqplayer/readme.txt

 

Does anyone know where audiolinuz expands this in the distro?  All the config files are where one would expect them to be, but I'm not finding the readme for some reason

 

Thanks!

I have a problem.

 

My ControlPC has a 4TB SSD with NTFS partition with music. I would like to add another 2TB SSD with the same parameters.

 

I installed the new SSD I could mount it and  I strated the import the music into the Roon server.

 

After a couple of minutes the system lost the new SSD, after a reboot both of them.

 

I took out the new one and everything works. What can be the problem?

Please check the content of /etc/fstab

 

I have discovered a problem in UUID assignment, so the mount script will not work correctly. The reason is that a command with last updated version of util-linux is giving a different output.
I will fix it in the next Audiolinux menu release.

If you want to fix it now you can change manually the line in /opt/scripts/local_mount.sh (as root) from
UUID="$(lsblk -f | grep "$drive" | awk '{ print $4 }')"
to
UUID="$(lsblk -f | grep "$drive" | awk '{ print $5 }')"

 

-> I have been working a lot on the new web interface, now  beta version is almost ready! Now easy to use with touch screen and with search function!

Pierro, thanks for the quick and accurate help, it seems now everything works as it should be!

 

The new interface looks cool... :)
