Default headless linux server

What's recommended for a headless linux server? I'm looking at daphile, and hopefully can get it up and running without too much of an issue.

I'd also like to control it with my android phone.

Shairport sync is the best solution I've found. Run it as read only on the pi (personal credit lol) and eliminate corruption issues. Stream to it from any device.

Running my pi with a full Ubuntu distribution. Wasn't hard to set up, and works great. It's been up for a couple years now.

If you're looking at Daphile then presumably you're running X86/amd64 hardware...
In that case another worth trying is Snakeoil OS
Snakeoil OS

If you're running a Raspberry Pi then MoOde/Archphile/Pi-Core Player/Snakeoil OS/Volumio/Diet-Pi/ etc etc etc

If y'all have any need for a UPS running the Raspberry Pi, check out mine. Need testers..

I've been using Daphile for more than five years. It is very easy to setup and use.
There are detailed instructions and a FAQ on the website.

I have tried a couple of apps but have settled on Squeezer, an open source app on Google Play.

I'll test it.

Will it have enough juice for the raspberry pi, an external usb hard disk & dac ?

Well, I attempted to start with the daphile installation, but couldn't get passed the bios password. I'm trying to repurpose some computer hardware. I think I'll need to pull out the battery or try flashing the bios some how.

Yes
I have 2 versions. One with some headers for buttons, relay and panel switch, but at the moment it has to be pushed onto the RPI 40 pin header. Another version that is showtime ready has no expansion headers will do all the same filesafe actions and can either be soldered directly to the 40pin header (preferred) or soldered to a removable header. Main reasoning is the wide variety of options and setups one may prefer. I can provide the wires for the one with headers, but would be best for you to choose the accessories for them. The power button need only be an on/off switch. I can provide the part number from mine if wanted. Any 5v DC relay for that part and any momentary buttons for the actions.

How much are they? I've got a nice little case for my pi.
Send them both, and I'll test them both.
