Musicbox and Allo Boss


#21

To be clear, do you use the settings.ini file or the websettings to configure your Allo Boss soundcard @fourzfour? Or are you manually setting the device tree overlay in config.txt yourself? The latter way would work, but I can’t see how the former ‘automatic’ way currently would since its looking for the wrong soundcard name in setsound.sh.


#22

It’s been a while but I used a post on here to update (trying to find it now)…Some of the commands I used were:

apt-get update && apt-get install --yes rpi-update
PRUNE_MODULES=1 SKIP_WARNING=1 rpi-update
reboot

There may have been more, I’ll let you know when I find the post.

Allo Boss was then listed in websettings.


#23

All commands I used were:

wget -O /opt/musicbox/setsound.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/pimusicbox/pimusicbox/develop/filechanges/opt/musicbox/setsound.sh
apt-get update && apt-get install --yes rpi-update
PRUNE_MODULES=1 SKIP_WARNING=1 rpi-update
reboot

On reboot Allo Boss was available in websettings.

Yeh I appreciate it’s be listed in the websettings following that, and that the driver would be available but I’d have thought the startup would fail as the script would think it doesn’t exist. Would you mind providing the output of ‘aplay -l’ with your Allo Boss card system?


#25

Sure I’ll provide whatever data you need if it helps…But you’ll have to give me instructions how to access what you need as I’m pretty much out of my comfort zone with this.


#26

It you could login via ssh and run aplay -l and paste the output that would be very helpful. ( and that’s a lowecase L, not a 1)


#27

Output below…

Brilliant OK, thanks. So I assume when it starts up you see some errors about the Device Tree Overlay already being present and not being able to find the soundcard, but then it works anyway i.e doesn’t crash! I do still need to fix it properly so it finds the soundcard properly and I understand what that is. But I don’t understand this crashing behaviour. That should be fixed in rc6 (and rc5 if you did the manual updates).


#29

I’ve never noticed any errors on the rare occasion that I’ve needed to restart for a music file update, In fact can’t remember it ever throwing an error, Just works great.
If you need anything else just let me know…


#30

If you have a minute, could you paste the output of cat /var/log/musicbox_startup.log ?


#31

Ah I see that error you mentioned in the log…But I never get to see it in the web interface or Mopidy Mobile etc.
