Hope to get it done this weekend or shortly after.

Thank you gkkpch.
I have tested my rock64 with volumio2.
ES9023 pi-HAT DAC does not work, no sound.
ES9038Q2M DAC wired connected by using Pi-P5+ I2S BUS works fine. Good sound.
However there is NAS problem.
NAS mount is successful, but no music files scanning.
Only local and USB memory music files shown in browsing.

pfeerick wrote:Firstly, I just want to say that you guys have done a great job with volumio... it is a great package - easy to install and configure, looks good, sounds great ;)

I have the rock64 DAC board, but wanted to run docker and volumio side by side as I was planning to have an always on rock64 server that doubled as a playback device. Docker didn't seem to co-operate well on the volumio (although I didn't experiment with it too long to see why).

I was wondering how hard / what would be the process for getting the I2S audio working on say one of the newer bionic/ubuntu minimal or container images that ayufan does for the rock64? (as I'm guessing it wouldn't be that different to the Debian image - just not sure what sound related stuff needs to be configured. Or should I poke around with docker on volumio a bit more as it should be working?


Sorry, I totally missed your post :oops:
It is not possible to add Volumio to an existing distro, we build our own Debian jessie (stretch is in the planning) with volumio-specific packages, including a quashed root filesystem and filesystem overlay, all initiated from our initramfs.
If there is anything specific missing in our Debian distro, just say. In case it makes sense for others and it does not blow up the size of our image, I might add it.

A new version of Volumio for Rock64 has been added, see the OP.
Apart from newest Volumio functionality, this version has support for Realtek RT5370 wireless devices.

Hi OP, are you able to point to the resources on how to wire ROCK64 to a DAC HAT (I suppose it is going through I2S), thanks in advance.

You don't wire it to the hat. The hat sits right on the top perfectly. There are a set of pins just for that. You will need to move a jumper on the hat, though, as it is set by default to use the optical rather than the analog outs.

That only applies to the Rock64 Audio HAT (yes, mind the jumper) and older RPi B HATs (the ones with the additional connector).
Any other HAT won’ t work other than by wiring them, look for the RPI B and rock64 pinout and let me know in case you get stuck.

From the older PI HATs only “simple” DACs work correctly, the Rock64 kernel only has a generic I2S driver (also with limitations as to the different formats it can handle).
You might have to configure “Resampling” in case you run into this issue.
There is nothing we can do about that, we have to take the kernel as it comes.

Thanks for the explanation, very helpful. :)

And big thanks for the port, I have 2 RPi 3B, 2 RPi 3B+ and a TInkerboard, Rock64 sounded the best. I don't know the difference between the kernel's update cycle between these boards, but Rock64, as its name implies, rocks !! Please keep up the great work!
