  1. Both values are at the limit. I would test this configuration and verify the RAM used during HQPlayer play. You can also check the remaining zram space when in ramroot.
  2. You must reboot answering N to boot prompt and after changing the values type as root ramroot -E And reboot
  3. ... I don't have a 4 Gb system to test. You could try 200 zram 350 RAM
  4. Just tested from menu 206. Correctly updated to menu 207. If you go back to main menu you will see 206, you must exit and type menu to display the new one. The password is only one, the menu password (not audiolinux etc.) Maybe network is down, connection to server temporarily busy, your hard disk space full... Note: the first start of menu 207 is slow, because it will install the new package manager yay and remove pamac. Don't close the window.
  5. Maybe you can retry, I have checked now on the server and the version 207 has been correctly uploaded
  6. Yes this is the best method for official packages. However, since most of audio applications (Roon. HQPlayer, etc.) are in the user repository AUR, from menu 206 you can update everything with yay -Syu --noconfirm This will not update the kernel, since kernel is "on hold" on the pacman configuration file, because sometime Audiolinux is using a patched BFQ realtime kernel and kernel compilation would take a very long time. You can update all using menu in this sequence: 1) Audiolinux menu 2) System update 3) Kernel update Take into account what I have said before: The updating process in Audiolinux is done with 1) Audiolinux menu 2) Kernel. This is compiled by audiolinux with some changes. Since a full system update could be necessary before new kernel installation, please see disclaimer at point 3) 3) System update, not controlled by Audiolinux. This is standard Archlinux update. In some cases system update could be problematic for users not expert in linux. This is a normal occurrence in linux "rolling release" like Audiolinux/Archlinux A norml user does not need to make a system update. Menu update is enough. If you decide to update, please do it frequently, before installation is too old. Audiolinux will release a new version every 2 months with full package update, if the user want to reinstall an updated OS.
  7. @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!
  8. 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
  9. To make a small default image I must drop pamac AUR installer in favor of another one, yay Next week I will do this.
  10. This was exactly my idea for headless 2.1 where LXQt should remain with all installed as it is now.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Yes, but in your final configuration, you should not use auto-mount for your your music drive, but mount it with the option "MOUNT local drive" in system menu. This will avoid also possible permission problems since the Audiolinux script will mount the drive with the right parameters. After you should update your audio application settings with the new mount location that will be a sub-folder of /media
  15. The problem is that you have auto-mount enabled in lxqt. Because of this audiolinux partition is mounted in /run/media/audiolinux/audiolinux and the script ramsave think that you are not in ram mode. Go to PCManFM-Qt (the file explorer) preferences and uncheck all the mount options. This way ramsave should work. ---------------- NOTE 1 If you want to use all your available memory in ramroot mode. You must edit the ramroot configuration file. 1) Reboot in normal mode answering N to boot prompt 2) Using File editor ROOT in system menu edit the file /etc/ramroot.conf The line ram_pref=4000 is the maximum amount of RAM in ramroot mode. The default value 4000 is fine (if you have at least 16 GB) The other line zram_max=1000 is the max free zram memory (equivalent to free disk space) . This is very low. In theory, if the RAM is 4000, you could go up to 12000. If your RAM is 32GB you could go to 28000 or less if you give more than 4000 to RAM. After changing for example 1000 to 12000 or choose the combination of ram_pref and zram_max that you prefer, you must go to console type su give root password audiolinux0 and type ramroot -E -> This procedure will be a lot more easy in the next menu version NOTE 2 the option RAMROOT in Status menu is not working now because the command "ramroot status" in the new version 2.0 of ramroot is missing . I will update soon in the next menu release. The "Show configuration" option in main menu however should display the right status.
