Raspberry Pi B: Wheezy.
Before installing it, I did a lot of reading about how hard it is to install. Several different sites suggested a long and difficult installation process. For me, it was not hard AT ALL.
I installed it on a Raspberry Pi B (the original) running Debian Wheezy.
$ cat /etc/os-release PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 7 (wheezy)" NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux" VERSION_ID="7" VERSION="7 (wheezy)" ID=raspbian ID_LIKE=debian ANSI_COLOR="1;31" HOME_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/" SUPPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianForums" BUG_REPORT_URL="http://www.raspbian.org/RaspbianBugs"
$ uname -a
Linux myservername 4.1.19+ #858 Tue Mar 15 15:52:03 GMT 2016 armv6l GNU/Linux
How to Install
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
I followed the install directions, sort of, from AllThingsPi. The following installs SOX libraries, and what looks like FLAC support – which I’ll need:
# install some libs $ sudo apt-get install -y libsox-fmt-all libflac-dev libfaad2 libmad0
Then download from Logitech:
# get the latest nightly build (from downloads.slimdevices.com): $ wget -O logitechmediaserver_all.deb $(wget -q -O - "http://www.mysqueezebox.com/update/?version=7.9.0&revision=1&geturl=1&os=deb")
$ sudo dpkg -i logitechmediaserver_all.deb
It started automatically, so I went to http://myserverorIPaddress:9000 and there it was, running fine.
So far, my Pi is a NAS, a backup server, web server, and music server.
And AllThingsPi said that he also installed SqueezeLite on the same Pi so that it was serving the client installed on the same Pi. Pretty spiffy. I won’t be doing that. My goal is to run multiple Pis as Squeezeboxes, synchronized throughout my castle.
