LATEST VERSION - Version 1.09 - 23rd January 2013
SqueezePlay OS, as I’ve been inventively calling it, is a small Ubuntu installation built using debootstrap and designed to run SqueezePlay for Joggler. You can download it, flash it to a USB stick, plug it into your Joggler and be up and running in no time. It’s also designed to look neat, with no console output on boot (although verbose output is easy to turn back on) dropping you straight into the SqueezePlay user interface.
After the first version was released it was clear that people wanted to install it onto the internal flash memory of their Jogglers, completely replacing the OpenPeak system. It’s taken a bit of work, but there’s now a specialised copy of SqueezePlay OS that can be written to the Joggler’s internal storage using the latest Reflashing Tool.
- Small Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) system dedicated to SqueezePlay.
- Can be installed to the Joggler's 1GB internal storage using the Reflashing Tool.
- Automated installation of Logitech Media Server.
- Full hardware accelerated video playback through mplayer.
- Easy network configuration from a SqueezePlay applet.
- Auto-mounting of USB storage devices.
- NFS preinstalled.
- Quiet startup (verbose boot optional).
- Proper system startup and shutdown controls.
- Full apt-get package management system underneath!
- All of the features of SqueezePlay for Joggler, including the Update applet.
- Settings applet for backlight level and display standby.
- Settings applet for internal or external (USB) audio interface.
- Fully compatible with remote control apps, eg. Squeezebox Remote.
Full details are on my SqueezePlay OS for Joggler page.
This should be a fun system for running all sorts of background applications, in a much easier to use environment than the native operating system (without the risk of unwanted updates!), so please post and let me know what you make of it!
