  1. @hifi25nl upon rebooting, when it asks to load root file system to zram if I choose 'N' it still loads to zram. It says "Loading / to zram..." How can I prevent it from loading to ram? I would like to run some updates. Thanks

  5. I experienced the same thing. I had to move enabling Ramroot to resize AL partition in RAM to one of the last steps.
  6. Apple Mac Mini "Core i7" 2.3 Quad-Core (Late 2012) w/16GB of RAM + Uptone Audio MMK DC Fan Controller (Installed by Uptone Audio) Includes Mac OS X El Capitan (Optimized) on a 32GB Toshiba SDHC Card with HQPlayer playback software installed. Mac OS X is configured with bridged networking. It's plug n play with this configuration. The internal 500 GB SSD Drive also includes Windows 10 on a partition that I ran optimized with Process Lasso and Fidelizer - also configured with bridge networking. It's plug n play with this configuration too. This Mac Mini can also run Audio Linux (AL) booted to RAM. I have only booted AL to RAM once for testing, but have not listened to it. Alex Crespi of Uptone Audio runs his Mac Mini using Audio Linux in this way and he has stated that he is very pleased with it. Before discovering Audio Linux, I experimented a lot with different operating systems and settled on an optimized version of OS X El Capitan booted from an SD Card, then un-mounting the internal SSD. I used this to run HQPlayer as an NAA and I ran Roon Server on my sonicTransporter. This machine is powerful enough to run Roon alone or HQPlayer in a distributed setup as I did. There are A LOT of different configuration options to choose from using this Mac Mini. It can be configured as a Roon Server, Roon Endpoint, NAA, etc. I bought this Mac Mini from Frys and shipped it to Uptone Audio to install their Mac Mini DC-Conversion/Linear Fan Controller Kit (MMK). Power Supply is not included. I ran mine with my Paul Hynes SR5 linear PSU. Here's what's included: Mac Mini with original box 500 GB Internal SSD 16 GB of OWC RAM Toshiba Exceria Pro 32 GB SDHC Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter CompuLab Display Emulator (fit-Headless) Edimax Wi-Fi USB Adapter I will let it go for $1,200.00 - Reduced to $995 OBO. Free Shipping in the continental US and Buyer pays PayPal fee of 2.9%.
  7. Thanks Alex. I got mine to work. For some reason, when I boot to the Mac and hold down the Option key, the AL icon is called EFI boot. But it works. I don't have any experience with HQPlayer Embedded. Are you able to use a Roon controller with HQPlayer Embedded?
  8. Does anyone know if AL will boot on a Mac Mini? I tried but it looked like the thumb drive was not recognized.
