Help with headless functionality

Postby carlorb » 02 Aug 2019, 17:07

Hello everyone,

as the subject says, i'm having troubles using the headless functionality of runeaudio.

i have it working (with a HifiBerry Digi+), connected to an old TV, and so the actual functionality is not a problem.

i've also setup a static IP for it since i've set it up with a screen. however, the runeUI app, firefox, and Chrome all are unable to access, the browser says it times out. i've tried http://runeaudio, http://runeaudio.local, and the actual IP i assigned to the Pi, all with no success.

i'm using release version 0.4b build 20170229

also, i don't know if it helps, but pinging the 192..246 (the assigned IP) gets a response from 192..250.

will appreciate any help

Hi carlorb,

There are several versions which are newer than this one. If you use the following version you will get better support from this forum: runeaudio-0-5-beta-for-all-raspberry-pi-models-t6532.html#p25819
After you download the file check the SHA-256 checksum, a bad download sometimes boots and works (a bit) but causes all sorts of problems.
Burn you Micro-SD card and it should boot without problems. It may take 2 or 3 minutes for the first boot, subsequent rebooting and start-up is less than 30 seconds.
To connect use: http://runeaudio.local, http://runeaudio or http://runeaudio. (the last one with a trailing '.')
There is a bug in this (and all previous) versions caused by an on-line service which RuneAudio expects, but is no longer available. The fix is documented here: rune-ui-is-slow-t6829-10.html#p28023
You can fix it by connecting via SSH and running this command (just copy and paste it):
Code: Select all
sed -i '/^ s/$/' /etc/hosts

You may need some help connecting via SSH. Here is some documentation, for Windows: ... and for Linux/MacOS: ... sh/ (user name: root, password: rune).
