"read only file system" problem in Daphile

Recommended Posts

Dear Sirs: My name Is Juan Crespo and I'm writing to you from Costa Rica. I have an issue installing Daphile that I don't know how to solve. I have been reading very carefully all your  documentation and surfed the web in order to find similar cases, but so far I haven't seen anything similar.


I have a Mac Mini 2.1 with a 1TB HD installed. I want to dedicate this computer entirely to Daphile. I have downloaded the recommended 64 bits version (I have tested the other two versions but the problem is exactly the same so I am going to focus on the recommended 64 bit version).


The beginning appears to be normal, I start from the bootable USB, it asks me to click F11, I skip wifi option, I write as desired IP, I write as mask and as both router and DNS server (I have searched the info in other computer ) I skip search domains and I write "y". Then the options about drives appear and I select my HD and then the four digit key code appears and I write the four digit code and then "continue) Then it appears "remove media and press any key" and the system starts.


As I want to use the computer only for Daphile I go directly to Settings and system firmware, I select the 1tb drive and I select the options you recommend for mac: GUID and UEFI. I click install and a series of messages that partitions are being created and everything appears to be. The issue begins after that, A message still appears "running daphile from the read only file system. changes cannot be saved" as you can see in this image




If I go to storage options, all the units appear as disabled, I only can set sd3 for music as you can see in




if I go back to system firmware, I can see my HD and the install button but then the partition table and boot loader options disappear as you can see here




If I try to restart the system (because I was wandering if it could be necessary for the changes to be set) the computer remains "waiting for a network connection" and nothing happens


I am fairly confident that the situation has something to do with the read only file system, as mentioned, if I restart all info is lost and the computer can't access the network connection, the ip previously written is gone. So far I don't know what to do in order to achieve another state different from "read only file system".


Could you please give me some advice or guidance on how to solve this issue.


Thanks in advance and yours sincerely,


Juan Crespo
