RuneAudio 0.5 beta is running OK on my rpi 4b/2gb

Being an impatient person, I tried to get my pi 4 running as a Kodi client with Libreelec for Pi4, disaster struck almost immediately.
I now have a small fan installed and all is well again but how long till a pi4 version of my beloved RuneAudio will appear?
So I downloaded the nightly build of ARCHlinux for arm that is pi 4 compatible and did the same as when the rpi3+ came out with little OS suport..
****First I cloned the RuneAudio disk to an image (always backup when you mess with stuff!)***
I replaced the boot partition with Arch's, copied cmdline.txt and config.txt from my old RuneAudio setup, then the newer ARCH modules to /usr/lib/modules.
Bingo! it boots and runs RuneAudio along with the PI-hole server I run on it.
I have probaly lost the 384kb patch but that does not matter so much as a server, although it is hooked up to an awesome oldskool stereo in my workshop with a PiFi DAC+ v2.
Happy for the moment until RuneAudio 0.6 beta arrives by which time bug fixes and supplies of pi4's should have arrived too.
It's amazing how much faster PI4 is especially booting to a system installed on an SSD drive on the USB 3.0
I have a metal pi4 case coming and a better fan, I am running the 5v fan on 3.3v which makes it nice and quiet and the idle temp is around 35C unlike the 65C+ when I first got it. I will post some pics when I finish setting it up. I am going to use double sided tape to stick the drive to the bottom of the case.
Thanks and Kudos to the RuneAudio team for all their hard work too, hope this takes some pressure of your shoulders..
