Not sure whether a lot of power or RAM is really needed. On my BBBW I run MPD for music playback as well as a pulseaudio server and shairport-sync in order to stream from other devices. Occasionally also rompr is used as web frontend to the MPD which is probably most resource hungry.


MPD gets its music library using the proxy DB plugin from a NAS which shares roughly 700GB of music files using NFS protocol.


Still, with this setup I have more than 50% of free memory and while playing audio the cpu is 70% idle (CPU is also most of the times clocked down to 300-600MHz only). So it seems like this machine has clearly more than enough of power...


Probably Volumio just comes with a lot of unnecessary bloat hogging the resources.

Please explaine, how you use RompЯ via smartphone? Have You installed web frontend to MPD Arch Package rompr 1.26-1 AUR (en) - rompr ?

RompЯ | A beautiful, feature-rich music player.

No, I did not use the AUR package but instead simply followed the installation guide on the rompr site (using nginx). However I remember that I had to read through a lot of the nginx archlinux wiki page and made some changes to the configuration that were necessary to have it running in the end.


To use it on the smartphone, I simply open Nymeria where IP is the BBBW address. I have no other http site enabled on the BBBW so the standard IP directly opens rompr for me. Works without issues.

What unique features of Volumio are there that you cannot make work on some generic linux flavor?

Would you so kind as to write a short guide how to install RompЯ on arch linux?

Yes, and easy to install for non-unix guys too. But unfortunately it's dead.

Terminal commands, or a bit better?
