Volumio 1.55 for Raspberry Pi & Raspberry Pi 2

Postby michelangelo » Sun Feb 08 2015 13:26

Here it is!
It is compatible with every little Pi out there, while keeping compatibility with i2s DACs.

Download at:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/volumio ... p/download

Changelog:

- Compatible with Raspberry Pi, Rasbperry Pi B+ and Raspberry PI 2
- I2s DAC compatibility with Raspberry PI 2 (Hifiberry Dac Plus, IqAudio Dac Plus and others)
- Better Spotify handling: new Spop daemon version and search by Name or Artist
- USB DAC hotplugging is now supported
- USB Storage can be used on the fly, and you're not required to reboot any more

Please give your feedbacks, as there's a whole new kernel inside!
Enjoy!

Works beautifully on the Pi2!

I bought the Pi2 when announced and hoped to load Volumio to act as a media streamer to my DAC. But was very disappointed when I discovered the Pi2 was not yet supported, even more-so when I had to use Kodi as a substitute (which does not do any favours for HiFi).

So I was elated when I noticed the new build pop up Thursday. I'm still trying to figure everything out, but so far so good. Job well done, sir.

EDIT: Actually, I now realize I'm running the 1.51PI2 build! I'll update and share my findings when I get home :).

Not working here (RPI 2 + USB Logilink UA0099). I can connect to Nas but the Database could not be upgraded. Everytime I try to change something via Webui, the WebUi crashes.

Many thanks for getting Volumio working on the Raspberry Pi 2 so quickly. To get everything up and running less than a week after the hardware was released is truly astonishing! It works brilliantly on my newly acquired Pi 2 and sounds great (I am using the HiFiBerry DAC+ with my music on a usb stick plugged into the Pi 2).

Up and running within 10 minutes using a DIGI+ with optical output to my Audio Aero Capitole CDP/DAC. Only tried a USB stick but will connect the NAS up later.

Many thanks Michelangelo, great work to get it working so quickly.

Bonjour,
Can we use the system updating of Volumio 1.5.1 to migrate from 1.5.1-> 1.5.5?

Kind of the same question here, but when updating from version 1.5
I just tried it and it (now?) says "release version: 1.55" in http://volumio.local/credits.php so I guess I succeeded?

Unfortunately the update function doesn't work for this version. The spotify fixes needs more deep system tweaks that cannot be applied via update system.
However, if you don't use spotify you can safely upgrade the system via the update function...
