Allo Boss2 with Volumio


Recommended Posts

Hello, I've been able to setup the OLED install script successfully with Volumio 2.853 from the Allo website, however I'm seeing errors following the same instructions/process when trying to install on the latest version downloaded directly from Volumio (2.882).

 

The error is as follows: 

 

unable to execute 'arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc': No such file or directory

error: command 'arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc' failed with exit status 1

----------------------------------------

Command /usr/bin/python -c "import setuptools, tokenize;__file__='/tmp/pip-build-melZSo/RPi.GPIO/setup.py';exec(compile(getattr(tokenize, 'open', open)(__file__).read().replace('\r\n', '\n'), __file__, 'exec'))" install --record /tmp/pip-5J5V6g-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-melZSo/RPi.GPIO
Storing debug log for failure in /root/.pip/pip.log

When rebooted the OLED shows a line for the volume, but the remote and control dial doesn't function.

 In volumio 2.882 some packages missing , due to that rpi.gpio not installing the new versions.

 

2.882 base image having issue, in gcc. So flash 2.873 and then update to 2.882 ,then it is working properly.

Success! I now have Boss2 running on Volumio 2.882 with the new Tidal Connect support.

 

Thanks for this help!

Hi everyone,
 

After using a Raspi 3 + Hifiberry DAC with lots of pleasure I thought it was time for an upgrade.
So I ordered an Allo BossII.
I tried Volumio because I know it well and want to stick with it.
However I ran into the same troubles as everyone else. There is no BOSS II in the DAC list.
So I tried to download the file which was posted here march 3rd.
http://3.230.113.73:9011/Allocom/Boss2/volumio-2.853-2020-12-18-pi.img.zip
It doesn't seem to exist anymore.


Then I tried all sorts of other things including login into the Raspi via SSH but whatever I try, I get a Connection refused error.
It seems SSH is not running on the Raspi. I tried the latest version of Volumio and the previous one mentioned here above (2.873).
Again I run into the same problem of not being able to login to the Raspi.
I can ping the Raspi from the computer I work from and I left the name of the device as is.
I tried to SSH without a username, with username Volumio and username volumio.
Always the same response.

 

Has anyone got a guide about how to get the BOSS II working with Volumio?

 

When will the Boss II be included in the list of DAC's in Volumio?

 

Is there another mediaplayer that works out of the box with the Boss II?

 

Has anyone tried another DAC in the list to check compatibility?

 

I don't care about the frontpanel. I will only use the webinterface to control Volumio, however, I do understand that for certain settings I need to SSH into the PI or use the frontpanel so either one should work.

If my questions look a little bit confusing then you might be right because it is all confusing.
And even though I am not the worst, English is not my native language. That may make things more difficult.

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Adding to the above to make things more clear:

As per the Volumio manual I tried the following:
ssh [email protected]
and
ssh [email protected]
The x's state the proper IP address.
I tried the above with and without sudo
sudo ssh .....
Nothing works for me.
While I can connect to the webinterface of volumio at the same IP address as I ssh to.

Forwarded PM please check
