"Next X86" dev (Kernel/ Hardware/ Debian stretch/buster)

That could be, X86 is a fairly different platform.
With arm boards we known which way they have been configured, how it works, and how to adapt.
With x86 it is like an eruption, you have zillions of different configurations out in the open.
Need time to solve this...

What about an i7 architecture port? I suspect that is the issue.

What about participating with the prereleases of new sew software? perhaps something already running on i7 gen? if it exists.

I'm willing to help.

Thanks,
Bruce

i7 is not the issue, we are talking about M2 devices, Wifi devices and their firmware requirements, NVME, eMMC and whatever is new from the last 2-3 years.
PM me, I'll get you a test version. It has no myVolumio, is not upgradable, is not official and has no guaranteed support.
But feedback is always welcome.

The message shown seem to indicate a problem with the network (the image is very blurry).
Official Volumio image is kind of … trailing … when it comes to network drivers.
Sometime you can just find the right firmware, but in your case I think it won't help, the NEtwork (ILM219) and the Wifi card (8265AC) are very recent.

You need to recompile with the new kernel (and maybe even inject your firmwares, cf https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi/core_release)

I am a little bit confused about the version numbering here.
The image versions mentioned in this thread are lower than the now offical x86 release version (2.586 04-06-2019), yet, as far as I can tell, this is based on Debian Jessie and Linux 3.x.

Is there any new info to a Debian buster, Linux 4.x release / testing status?

I would be very interested in trying out a test image (unfortunately, as I am newly registered, I wasn' able to send a PN) to try out Volumio on an Intel NUC and test the WiFi support there.

Thanks!

First, I want to thank Volumio Team and Forum member Robert having provided the working image for my system.

volumio-2.529-2019-01-14-x86 works absolutly great!

My system is a Streacom FC5 case, ASRock J3455, 8GB RAM, SSD and Pico 90W PSU - powered by a ASUS Xonar Essence II PCIe DAC Soundcard.

I am very happy with Volumio X86 music-server..

Hello, Do you use the on-board Gigabit interface provided by the Realtek chip? Any issues with that? Thanks

HI Fidelity089,

Can you share how much memory is actually seen / used by volumio. If you are using a x86 32bits kernel, isn't there a limitation to 4 gigas only ?

I'd be very interested in testing a new build as well. I have 4 or 5 different motherboards ( intel and AMD based) Asrock , Asus...
