@J4K,

A force save installed data to database before auto reboot was needed.
It caused:
- Need 2nd reboot to launch
- Not showed as installed

Now it’s fixed and use manual reboot instead. Please try and report.

Hi Rern,

Thanx for your prompt response and work on this project, it's much appreciated.

Yesterday my rpi3 cooked my samsung micro sd card, at least it wasn't the pi that cooked.

I've ordered a new card and will report the chromium update as soon as.

Cheers

It seems like your sfdisk version no longer has -F option to get unpartition space.
For more compatability, I have revised the addon to use normal fdisk instead.

Please try and report.


Still no go

@thanhvo31,

My RPi3 run Expand Partition addon successfully on both 0.3 and 0.4b.
Your screenshots show it had some problem with sudo when start Rank Mirror Servers (which still working fine for me as well). And all of your addons list were clean, no installed addons.

Try:
- SSH command: which sudo
    - If no sudo but your previous post showed it ran pass a sudo, sudo itself was missing or corrupted.
    - You can try reinstall with: pacman -Sy sudo
- If sudo is ok, run Bash Command addon to see whether it run or not.
- If it run, try install each addon and report so I can add them in the compatability list.

@rern
My wrong.
Below is information regarding as expansion.

Since we login with root, so why bother 'sudo'?

Hi Rern,

Thanx for your help, chromium is now successfully installed. :)

Does anyone else have a side scrollbar (right hand side), ?

Can it be removed?

Cheers

If your screen displays border around Chromium, you have to make it full screen.
Try: append
disable_overscan=1
to /boot/config.txt

Otherwise try: lower
--force-device-scale-factor=??
in /root/.xinitrc

Then reboot.

Hi rern,

Many thanks for your excellent add-ons menu! It's a great feature, and is a really neat way to extend RuneAudio's capabilities for those of us who aren't that comfortable with the Linux command-line.

Can you help me with an issue I've hit with the Samba Upgrade add-on, please? The Samba Upgrade seems to assume that there's a USB drive, and fails if it can't find one. All the music for my setup is stored on a NAS - there's no USB drive attached to my RuneAudio device (a Raspberry Pi 3).

Or have I misunderstood something? Is the intended purpose of the Samba Upgrade to allow RuneAudio to share its local USB drive with the rest of the network?

Here are the installation messages:

Code: Select all
wget -qN --no-check-certificate https://github.com/rern/RuneAudio/raw/master/samba/install.sh
chmod 755 install.sh

./install.sh

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 i  No USB drive found.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Thanks in advance!

Peace and friendship,
englishtim

Yes.
RuneAudio already has Samba installed. The upgrade is for improving performance of the server role. It's never been tested for benefits as a client though.
Obviously you have tried most of the addons. And I believe you have tried each addon in most every functions. So any suggestions or comments to share?

Hi rern,

Ah, OK - thanks for the clarification.

I've tried some (but not all) of the add-ons, and the ones I'm using all seem really worthwhile. You've done great work with this!

I like to keep my setup relatively simple, so I've gone for the add-ons which are likely to help performance and usability. For the record the ones I have installed at the moment are:

  • Boot logo;
  • Chromium browser;
  • Expand partition;
  • Login logo for terminal;
  • MPD upgrade;
  • RuneUI enhancements

The combination of the MPD upgrade and the Chromium browser makes a huge difference to performance when navigating the library, and I'd recommend those to anyone as the first things to try after they've installed the add-on menu. The RuneUI enhancements are also really good, and make for a much nicer experience across a range of different screen-sizes without any performance hit.

There are only a couple of things that I've found so far that might need fixing:

  • In the enhanced RuneUI, after you've emptied the playing queue the "Browse Library" button doesn't seem to do anything. Tapping the normal library link at the bottom left works fine;
  • Running Gitpull after installing Chromium seems to reset the browser back to the custom version of Midori, with (as you'd expect) a significant performance hit. Uninstalling and reinstalling Chromium fixed this.

Otherwise, it's all good! I'll post a comment if I spot anything else.

On a different topic I'd also be interested in your opinion about a feature request I posted a few days ago:

http://www.runeaudio.com/forum/feature-request-output-to-chromecast-audio-t6248.html

Chromium is an essential part of the concept, but I've no idea about whether the feature is possible or not. Any thoughts?

Thanks again,

Peace and friendship,
