Re: Volumio on Joggler

Hi Pete, I should have revealed more details of my Plan A, so apologies for that. I like to take the easy route for these things and this is as easy as I could get it. The rough steps I took are as follows: 1) I downloaded a pre-compiled image file for Volumio and used Win32 disk imager to put it on...

Re: Volumio on Joggler

Apparently the best way to learn is to fail. If so, then I've learned a lot in trying to get Volumio 2 working on the Xubuntu image! There are a few MPD-based distros knocking around, which I think all started out as "RaspyFi". Out of this came: Volumio - ARM and x86 RuneAudio - ARM MoodeAudio - ARM...

Re: Volumio on Joggler

I've made some progress, based on Jools Wills' Xubuntu 14.04 running off a 2.5 inch SSD attached via USB. Music plays fine with either software volume control or no volume control (permanent 100%). It indexed 120GB of music on a server SAMBA share. Audio is coming out of the built-in speaker - I don...

Re: Volumio on Joggler

Thank you for fixing the pictures. As you suggest, probably the best approach is to go for an add-on to an existing build rather than re-inventing the wheel by compiling a new kernel. I'll have a look at Buzz's base Ubuntu build. If I can spin that up in a VM then it will make things much easier for...

Re: Volumio on Joggler

I took a different approach as a bit of a test, pretty much following this guide: http://typingoutloud.org/raspberry-pi-installing-volumio-pibang/ I installed the Xubuntu 14.04 image and then followed bits of the guide: installed a load of Volumio dependencies, alsa-tool, mpd, then pulled down the V...

Volumio on Joggler

I've been happily using the joggler for some time as an LMS client. At the same time I've been using MPD-based systems (non-joggler) elsewhere with great success. The debian/MPD Volumio project has been around for some time; it's a stripped down linux install with MPD and a nice GUI (touch-screen fr...
