I don't remember where it is ... but try typing
which of-install
It might show the full path to it

/user/local/sbin

I did

Code: Select all

sudo which of-install
then

Code: Select all

sudo nano /usr/local/sbin/of-install
scroll down to Squeezeplay

which gave me

Code: Select all

 else

                echo "Checksums match, continuing..."

                # Create a standard user 'squeezeplay' with no configured password.
                id -u squeezeplay &>/dev/null || useradd -s bash --create-home squeezeplay
                adduser squeezeplay audio &>/dev/null
                adduser squeezeplay users &>/dev/null
                adduser squeezeplay video &>/dev/null
I have yet to change and run it

Well that works (after the slowest ever install, I think my Joggler is getting as tired as me :roll: )

Thanks for the pointer Paul :)

Hi

The USB running Squeezeplay OS on my jogger finally died. After several years! :lol:

After 2 nights spent tearing my hair out I finally managed to get Squeezplay v3.03 for openframe onto the internal memory. However I'm now wondering if this image is no longer recommended?

Years later I wonder do I need to have LMS loaded onto whatever operating system I use as I like to control the music through my phone? I can't see a way of doing this on the internal version. All my music is loaded onto a usb

Can anyone advise the easiest way I can use the joggler as a music player that I can also access and control with my phone? I tried looking though the various posts but found it somewhat overwhelming! Any advice and instruction would be very much appreciated.

If you are still running LMS then, if not already done, install the “Material” plugin and then access your LMS via the web browser on your phone … and put /material at the end of the URL
Something like
http://192.168.0.2:9000/material

I have no LMS at the moment. It was on the external squeezeplay os USB that died. I don't have a device that I can download it to as none of my hardward (except phone, tablet or joggler) is on 24/7.

Can LMS be downloaded in anyway onto the internal squeezeplay OS? If not, I need to find an alternative way of using the joggler as a server.

I made a post earlier today that seems to have vanished into the ether :(

Anyway, since then I have installed the new Debian Bullseye onto the internal ram of my "Betting Shop" Joggler.

Installed Squeezeplay from the "of-nstall" list

Installed LMS v 8.3.1 and added the 32 bit binaries

Configured LMS (I uninstalled a lot of Plugins and added a few (Total now of 16) and have 9% ram left for any updates.
I set the update check to one month and no to downloading them.

BBC Sounds plays on the internal speakers with the Audio Interface set to "Internal (Direct)"

An external usb stick (or even a cheap SSD- Amazon have a 128gb for £12- which I use on a raspberyy pi) would make a more resilient,imho, setup.

Plus - if you want to have local music as well then move the LMS cache onto a folder near the music (off the Joggler internal storage) because the LMS database will eat up your space.

Spent a while yesterday playing with Squeezeplay on latest base OS, jivelite & squeezelite on latest base OS and even a pre-packed distro from slimforums. No matter what I tinkered, with I couldn't get the 'backlight fully off' so have kept with the classic sqpOS (v3.03?) installation. I did treat the Joggler to a new microSD card and mini-reader, which zips along a bit better than the old USB stick that I was using.
