Perhaps kipeta will present his suggestions regarding this, again I do not want to intrude deeply this thread.
Daphile is based on Gentoo but it differs quite a lot from many other Linux distros in that Daphile uses always the SquashFS image as its root filesystem (and AUFS to have a writeable layer for it). When Daphile version is upgraded the whole SquashFS image is replaced with the new one on DaphileBoot partition. Only the system settings and LMS databases that are stored on DaphileData partition are retained. Even the AUFS writeable layer is swapped to a new one. Daphile uses kind of a single firmware image philosophy, instead of individual application packages. So even if someone would manage to install some additional packages to the root filesystem, they would not be retained during the Daphile version upgrade.

This was a decision between "easy to install and maintain" and flexibility.

Someone could try to install the content of SquashFS image manually (and configure boot) to a Linux disk partition and try to use it as a normal Gentoo system but I'm really not sure if that would work (easily) and I'm certainly not going to give any support on that.

Thanks a lot, that configuration makes perfect sense and answers the question about feasibility of adding the local GUI too.

Hi Kipeta,
and thank you for your hard work. I lost sound after the update, hardware is recognized (Xonar DG) and progress bar in player is moving. I tried squeezelite instead of squeezeplayer but output is still muted.

Regards
Marko

It's strange because there should not be any such change. Have you checked the "Mixer controls" settings? You probably have to enable something there.

If you don't manage to make it work please contact me again using the contact form on www.daphile.com and send me also the content from address: http://daphile/cgi-bin/audioinfo.cgi.

Why does it say the daphile is installed in a read-only file system..
Before installing in a standalone pc I wanted to try it out in virtaulbox but I cant get it to add the music folder. When I try to add the music drive as network storage , it says "daphile is installed in a read-only file system". Any solution on how I can get a workaround?

If you are starting Daphile using the ISO file then it's read-only. You should go to Settings -> System Firmware and install Daphile to virtual harddisk of VirtualBox. Then shut it down, "remove" ISO file attachment as CD/DVD drive and restart from virtual disk. Then you are able to save settings.

Just curious, my first question; has anyone tried to implement or run Daphile on a Wyse S90 thin client which uses a relatively weak processor; AMD Geode running at 366 MHz and has relatively little ram of 512MB?

These thin clients are relatively plentiful and cheap on ebay and because they are fanless would be ideal as a client for Daphile.

Secondly, if someone has successfully run Daphile on a Wyse s90 thin client, does the Wyse s90 thin client, support playback at 24/192 using the usb. I of course am referring to the use of a usb to spdif converter that supports 24/192 such as the xmos series.

I would be grateful if there is some feedback on these 2 questions .

Thanks

mllum

Default Pre-release

Pre-release with new web UI "File manager" (and kernel 3.16.1) available at:
http://www.daphile.com/tmp.P8SxQ0Qwy6

If you have full installation of Daphile, you can upgrade to the pre-release version as follows:
  • go to http://daphile/cgi-bin/Devel on your Daphile PC
  • copy the following link text (either x86_64 or i486 version) to input field besides the "Install" button
    http://www.daphile.com/tmp.P8SxQ0Qwy6/daphile-14.08-b201528-i486.iso
    http://www.daphile.com/tmp.P8SxQ0Qwy6/daphile-14.08-b201528-x86_64.iso
  • press "Install"
  • reboot
Please be careful with the "File Manager". You could easily delete your whole library.

Please send your feedback using the contact form at www.daphile.com.

Hi, I don't know about your first question. According to Kipeta, the creator of Daphile, Daphile is not designed for ARM type pc.
But, your second question, I think Wyse S90 limited to 16 bit 48Khz.
Wyse S90 Thin Clients (Used, Recertified, Refurbished, New)
