    SqueezePlug Version 7 available

    Hi folks,

    GREAT NEWS!

    I'm very happy to tell you that SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi version 7 is now ready for download. SqueezePlug version 7 is a completely new version, nearly every script is renewed! The new version is based on the latest Raspbian version 2014-01-07-wheezy-raspbian so it should work on every hardware version of raspberry Pi.

    There is only one version available, the Debian Wheezy HF version. There is no need for other versions any more, because every software package is running on the hard-float version.

    A lot of unnecessary thinks are removed in version 7, it's focussed on the important things, but they are much better implemented as before.

    SqueezePlug version 7 is much easier for users and a lot of bugs from version 6 are removed. Every software package now comes in an actual version.

    There is no update from version 6 is available!


    What is SqueezePlug?
    SqueezePlug is a platform for different Media-Servers:
    - Logitech Media Server (f.k.a. Slimserver, SqueezeBox Server) in the latest version
    - MiniDLNA
    - MPD

    And SqueezePlug is a platform for different Media-clients or players:
    - SqueezeLite
    - SqueezeSlave
    - Shairport


    And SqueezePlug offers some other services:
    - VNC Server

    All these servers and players are ready to install by just a click.

    Included features are:
    - Scripts for all SqueezePlug configurations
    - Expand RootFS automatically
    - Change Timezone, Hostname, Password, SSH-Keys,
    - Configure Network Settings incl. WiFi support
    - Network configuration files are now available on the /boot (FAT) partition so you can change them from you Windows PC
    - Change Overclocking and Memory Spilt
    - Handling of external drives
    - Cloning SD-Cards
    - Samba Server already included
    - HD-Idle included
    - Update functions included
    - Test and Change audio settings

    All official Raspbian / Wheezy features like X-Server are available, nothing is purged by default.

    How to install SqueezePlug?
    The Image fits on every 4 GB SD-Card! You should expand the SD-Card to it's full size during the initial setup.

    1. Download, unzip and burn the sd-card
    2. Start the Pi and find out the IP-Address (e.g. from an attached monitor, from your router or a tools like Advanced IP Scanner v2).
    3. login with user: root and pw: nosoup4u
    4. Follow the initial steps
    a. Update SqueezePlug
    b. Expand the Root-Filesystem to the maximum SD-Card size
    5. type "setup" and choose the options you need and the scripts will do the rest for you.

    Please visit my blog to download the new image: http:/squeezeplug.de
    Look for:

    Hi Thomas,

    Good to see you back! Your squeezeplug 4 image is still rocking my dockstar. Squeezeplug 7 might be a good reason to switch over to the spare RaspberryPi I have lying around.

    SqueezePlug Version 7available

    Thomas,

    let me say that this is a great piece of software. I think there's great
    potential for an easy to install solution for low-power systems. There
    have been several discussions recently where people were looking for
    something like this, but I hesitated to mention Squeezeplug, as it
    seemed so dead. Great to see you back in action!

    This is the first time I downloaded that image, just to see how easy it
    really is (heh... had to pull my camera's SD card because I'm running
    out of unused cards :-)). I am looking at it from the non-linux user's
    perspective who wants a painless experience to use his SB. Here are my
    few comments (Klagen auf hohem Niveau ;-)):

    - The nag screen... Yes, first point on my list. I fully understand the
    desire to get a buck or two for the endless hours spent on the project.
    Feel free to show that screen when the setup is started. But please,
    PLEASE don't do it whenever I change menu. It's a pita and risks to just
    be blindly skipped, bearing the risk of accidentally hitting return when
    one shouldn't, just to get rid of the nag screen.

    - The setup menu totally lacks state information. It often would ask to
    make a selection, but never tells me what the current value was. I
    thought I needed to configure the network, just because I've never been
    told what IP address I was using. Whether it even had found an IP
    address automatically etc. Most likely I did a useless reset, just
    because I wasn't sure (yes, I could have gone to the shell, but I want
    to be a noob today!). The same applies to the timezone, hostname etc.
    This is particularly stupid when after installing LMS I'm told to
    connect to the server's IP address. Ahm... which is? Please add an info
    screen where such settings could be reviewed.

    - When installing LMS and it already was installed, I'm only told very
    late in the game that it already was installed. Then I'm told "If you
    want to install anyway, proceed..." or the like, and there's only an Ok
    button. How would I back out?

    - No locale settings? Keyboard layout seems like the minimum setting one
    would expect. Typing passwords with the wrong keyboard layout can be a
    misery (thanks for using a simple default password!). Full locale
    support would be even better, as some parts of LMS rely on the server's
    locale to be set correctly (eg. time/date formats).

    - Halt and Reboot menu options would be nice. Imagine I'm a dummy user
    and want to shut the system down safely. How would I achieve this?

    - I'd dump support for 7.7 just for the sake of complicity.

    - And I'd remove the Slim Devices License screen as well until somebody
    decides to sue you. It will never happen.

    Great job! Thanks for your contribution,

    --

    Hi Michael,
    thanks a lot for your post! I'm happy about feedback like this! This can make SqueezePlug better!

    You can delete the donation hints very easy from the Basic Configuration menu.

    Very good hint, I'll change that in one of the next versions

    I'll take a look at this!

    I think most of the people use SqueezePlug headless. So they use the local keyboard settings from Putty. I'll think about this point!

    You are right, will be integrated in an update!

    But than you don't have a stable version, right?

    o.k. that was only to save my a**. But if you tell me ...

    Thanks again,

    Heh... you see, I'm the lazy user who doesn't read _anything_. Shame on
    me! I'll give that a try next time (I've already swapped the SD card again).

    Fair enough. I did indeed hook up a monitor and keyboard.

    Locale still has some importance for LMS though. Would be great if you
    could add support for it.

    >> - I'd dump support for 7.7 just for the sake of complicity.

    > But than you don't have a stable version, right?


    How stable is it still if you have to patch it? I don't doubt your
    patches, but if you have to modify it to make it work, you can as well
    use the already modified version, can't you? Don't give the user too
    many options and simplify your life ;-).

    >> - And I'd remove the Slim Devices License screen as well until somebody

    > o.k. that was only to save my a**. But if you tell me ...


    I won't tell anyone. Promised!

    Nice .... BUT setting up SAMBA share doesn't work for me.

    This fstab entry works in Squeezeplug 6:

    //192.168.1.1/share/usb1_1 /mnt/samba/ cifs username=guest,password=

    The same in version 7 doesn't work.

    Hi castalla,
    that's odd! Samba is one of the few things I didn't change! I think it must have something to do with the guest account! Could you try to mount a Samba share with a real user?

    Thanks a lot,

    Sorry! The share is on the router usb - there's no way to change the user credentials. I'm stuck with the guest account.

    Edit:

    I've found that the following works to mount:

    //192.168.1.1/share/usb1_1 /media/music cifs username=guest,password=,sec=ntlm

    That's great, it seems that this is because the 3.8 kernel! I found different post stating that. So I think I should change this in the Samba script! I will check this out and than hack a first patch!

    Thanks a lot

    Thank you for this, Thomas. I was wondering, since the original Squeezeplug was made for plug units, if you would be able to resurrect a build for Pogoplug E02 along the lines of the defunct Sheevaplug?
