Looks like an external issue with the repos being updated at the same time as the image build was attempted, it's in the log for that build.

Code: Select all

Failed to fetch http://deb.debian.org/debian/dists/bookworm/main/i18n/Translation-en.xz  File has unexpected size (6077872 != 6075628). Mirror sync in progress? 
I've also cleared out the caches as it'll be building again tonight anyway (6.1.42 is out) and Bookworm 12.1 changed a bunch of packages.

Looks like it has a busy night ahead, 5.10.188 is out for the Bullseye release too. Wish it luck! 😁

:) Thanks Boss, trouble at t'mill solved :)

I tried that Mastodon, but used another username (what was the nickname for a bus conductor?)

anyways I could not get connected to the dvsn server

all good now. I'll check Bullseye when I get time

Odd little thing, it would seem that permissions for cron are not being set correctly while the image is being built. Next images have a fix applied on first boot, but if you get an "access denied" error when setting up your crontab, do this:

Code: Select all

sudo -s
chown :crontab /usr/bin/crontab
chmod 2755 /usr/bin/crontab
chown :crontab /var/spool/cron/crontabs
chmod 1730 /var/spool/cron/crontabs
reboot

I have been playing with the Release Candidates for a while.

Apparently there will be a point release in a month or; it was pushed out with over a 100 bugs still to be squashed! :shock:

Anyway, I had already built the Binaries for LMS, so here is O2 Joggler running LMS v8.4.0, Squeezelite on the internal speaker, and Jivelite for control.

Hi Ronni:

I am certain that I have answered this before

I don't think it is worhwhile using the internal Joggler ram with either Bullseye or Bookworm.

This is LMS 8.4.0 installed on a sd card (Bullseye image) which has not been expanded (so it replicates the size of the Joggler internal ram)
of@openframe:~$ df -h

I have just installed a copy of Ralphy's Squeezeplay on the above Bullesye image

I added the Radio Paradise Plugin to the LMS

It needs more work; the appearance of album art is sporadic / non existant, it's currently started by command line instruction.

It's using the internal default speaker, the screen calibration is not correct.

Improving on these settings requires time and, just as importantly, extra ram.

I would use the prior one (but remember this image is for experimentaion, so I treat it a bit like a beta :)

Also Debian have just updated Bookworm to version 12.2 (I don't know if this effects the build process)

Hopefully @roobarb! will pick up on this thread in a day or so

I have this up and running with a Topping DX3 Pro dac attatched.

I used

Code: Select all

https://www.jogglerwiki.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5141
and changed the version to squeezelite-1.9.9.1421-i686.tar.gz

I tried to create the reboot/shutdown script from your Bullseye but without any success :roll:

Happy to report that it worked for me, after a bit of fiddling which I suspect was related to iffy wifi during the setup process (and aforementioned memory stick corruption). I think what actually happened was that the setup process failed, then I couldn't log in via SSH, so I had to pull the power to reboot, which caused usb to remount readonly, and then all sorts of problems after that. This time, clean download, and having strong wifi signal, all was good. And as you said on the other thread, BBC Sounds worked out-of-the-box :-) (I'm using headphone out)

I'll take a look at the reboot/shutdown permissions next ;)

Ok here we go. Bookworm has the newer policykit , so the rules definitions are totally different. But because I now sortof know what I'm doing, this was easy:

Code: Select all

cd /etc/polkit-1
sudo nano rules.d/60-squeezeplay.rules
Then paste in the following and save it

Code: Select all

polkit.addRule(function(action, subject) {
    if (subject.user == "squeezeplay") {
        // permit reboot/etc actions for squeezeplay user (jive UI)
        if (action.id == "org.freedesktop.login1.power-off" ||
            action.id == "org.freedesktop.login1.reboot" ||
            action.id == "org.freedesktop.login1.set-wall-message" ||
            action.id == "org.freedesktop.login1.power-off-multiple-sessions" ||
            action.id == "org.freedesktop.login1.reboot-multiple-sessions") {
            return polkit.Result.YES;
        }
    }
});
(Or use a different editor if you don't like using nano)

That's all there is to it. Don't even need to reboot to pick up changes, since polkit monitors the rules.d directory.

Fixed!

Looks like apt got a bit upset during the last run, complaining about an incomplete repo. It would likely have worked the next time a build was triggered by a new kernel, but I really should have it remove failed builds and redirect to the previous version automatically.

1. Do we think that adding the polkit stuff should be part of the "of-install squeezeplay" script, or is it part of upstream Squeezeplay, or something else? Would be good to get that upstream somewhere, but point me in the right direction if I should take that elsewhere!


2. Unrelated observation: I noticed that /tmp was mounted from /dev/sda2 - feels like that should just be tmpfs instead? I can confirm that this seems to work fine (I picked 8M although that's certainly way too much, only using 28K currently)

Code: Select all

# /etc/fstab
tmpfs    /tmp                 tmpfs   noatime,size=8M       0    0

Code: Select all

root@openframe:/tmp# du -h -d 0 /tmp
28K     /tmp

3. Also, I'm glad (?) to report that all the other problems I had seemed to be caused by random filesystem corruption for whatever reason. Clues were all here:
viewtopic.php?t=5045&start=20
viewtopic.php?p=32683

I got into a messy bootloop recently, and a swift fsck sorted that out.
So that got me thinking - does it really make sense for the fstab to have the remount-ro flag but NOT have the pass=1 set (which would enable filesystem to be automatically fsck'd , as I understand it)? I'm not a Linux sysadmin so I don't really know what the downsides might be, it just seems like a good option to automatically fsck, rather than mount readonly and then get in a confusing slightly-unusable state. Thoughts?

Other thoughts - how many files are actually written to in practice, apart from the /tmp and /var/log stuff? The main culprits seem to be the stuff in userpath/settings:

Code: Select all

root@openframe:/home/squeezeplay/.squeezeplay/userpath/settings# ls
AlarmSnooze.lua        NowPlaying.lua          SetupAppletInstaller.lua  SlimDiscovery.lua
ChooseMusicSource.lua  OpenFrameBacklight.lua  SetupDateTime.lua
CustomizeHomeMenu.lua  Playback.lua            SetupLanguage.lua
DesktopJive.lua        ScreenSavers.lua        SetupWelcome.lua
It feels a bit like a bug that NowPlaying.lua is updated every few seconds with content that isn't actually changing. Fixing this (upsteam in Squeezeplay?) sounds like a good thing to look into. Happy to try, if you think that makes sense. (Update: https://github.com/ralph-irving/squeezeplay/issues/18)

I've thrown that into the install script for Bookworm now, ta!

The scripts don't auto-update any more, so this'll only appear in new builds. There used to be a cool update server thing, but it felt like overkill.

Now I forget precisely why, but I'm certain something gets upset (apt, maybe?) when it can't dump a bunch o' stuff in /tmp for a few moments. That's why it reverts to normal storage rather than tmpfs when an external device is used and the of-expand command is run.

This may have been a bug in earlier versions, let me know if you bump into any weirdness.

This harps back to considering the device like a lamp and not ever getting properly shut down, just powered off from the wall. As I remember things, having an fsck check at boot essentially caused it to fsck on every boot, which takes a while, and as we're using ext2 and treating this thing like an appliance it should just come back up and not whine about it. ;)

Got it - thanks! (BTW I also did a corresponding polkit entry for Bullseye - other thread)

No weirdness spotted yet... I had NOT realized/appreciated that this only happens when using of-expand. So if I run from external device, but don't expand, then /tmp would still be tmpfs? And if I run from internal, /tmp is tmpfs too? (Makes sense if so; and probably explains why I've not seen weirdness?)

Yeah, fsck on every boot would certainly suck. I'm trying to best understand the alternative i.e. the recommended "here's a configuration that's supposed to work". If /home/squeezeplay/.userpath/settings (and MAYBE /tmp) are readwrite on the flash, then power-off-from-the-wall is likely to always corrupt (especially if there's a lot of regular write activity there). And then the device will restart with flash mounted readonly, and then it won't work propertly, because /tmp and /home/squeezeplay/.userpath/settings won't be writeable (where the latter causes the Now Playing to stop working, and the former I think maybe causes some of the bootlooping), and fsck is disabled.

So the recommendation must be to configure so that it works properly even if the flash is mounted readonly? So /home/squeezeplay should be tmpfs too? Or should I try out with a journal (ext3 or more likely ext4)? Not sure it's clicking into place for me yet.

If not using external storage, is this configured differently? maybe that's what I'm missing / not understanding.

Yeah, I agree :-) Eliminating some of this 'stuff' ought to make the chosen OS configuration more robust in the face of blips and failures.

Re: Debian Bookworm for OpenFrame

Post by Paul Webster »

I thought I would give Bookworm a try.
I downloaded it a few days ago and had problems with it being very very slow (over an hour to install SqueezzePlay).
However, I was using new and unknown brand USB stick ...
So today I tried again with a SanDisk and it is much much better - back to normal.
However, I didn't download the new image from yesterday so I hit a problem that the recent update appears to have resolved .... anyway ... I'll mention it.

I switch from built-in audio to USB and SqueezePlay tells me to relaunch - but relaunch is not longer in the Quit menu.
I couldn't reboot from there because of the issue that the Polkit update has resolved and I didn't want to simply pull the plug ... so I ssh'd in and did a reboot from there.

In any case - I think it would be useful to have Relaunch in SqueezePlay again.

Edit:
Just been to birdslikewires to download latest and it is the same as one that I downloaded on evening of 16th.
So if the change is in there then I think it did not work.
