    LMS Backup

    I'm using pCP only for LMS and it accesses my music on a NAS. I'm wondering how best to recover from a microSD card failure on the RPi, and see that pCP has a "Save to USB" feature that puts the pCP configuration on a connected USB storage, and LMS allows the mounting of a USB to use for the Prefs and Data slimserver folders. Is there a more complete way of backing up my LMS setup to restore it if the microSD card fails? BTW, when I used "Save to USB" and moved the LMS folders to the same USB drive, I then couldn't boot pCP unless I removed the USB stick so presumably there was some interference. pCP did boot without the USB stick, and I used putty to copy the LMS Prefs and Data folders to the microSD card, and that got everything working again.

    The easiest way would be to just burn an image of the card.....but

    If you put the LMS files on a usb stick, the microsd card will last a very long time. As nothing is written to the card unless you change a setting and then backup. I have systems running 5 years on the same card.

    Installing PCP on a Pi running Raspbian Stretch?

    Hi,
    Im going to round up my PCP installation at our holiday home tomorow. For several reasons I would like to run LMS and a local player on a Pi3 which I use for some minor home automation tasks. I need to run Raspbian on this Pi, and I was wondering whether there is a way to install PCP on this Pi instead of installing the Rapbian LMS package? I Was thinking of a VM, but as I have no experience in this, I thought that there might be a simpler way?
    I would prefer to have the same system running on all my Pis, and PCP is simply the best
    Thanks & best regards
    Martin

    piCorePlayer = piCore + squeezelite

    There are other distributions that = Raspbian + squeezelite.

    Thanks Greg, Im aware of this (and hope that I didnt touch religious OS areas...).

    I know, Id installed LMS and squeezelite already with Jessie on another pi. But as Im in love with the PCP UI and have it running on seven Pis already, I was hoping to get it running on this particular Pi with Raspbian, too. As TC (in my understandimg) is a kind of reduced subset of Linux, I deduced that Stretch should bring everything to run the PCP engine behind a web server, even if the commands (for example for configuring the sound devices, jivelite etc.) would need some modification.
    Of course, if you tell me that my thoughts are nav, i accept this and go weeping in the corner...
    Best regards

    Thanks Jeff, Ill give this a try for sure, but I was referring to the PCP web ui, too (for configuring the sound device, using equalizer presets etc.).

    TinyCore/piCore is significantly different from other Linux distributions. The only thing I have seen that is similar is the OS on the SB Touch, Controller etc.

    Converting the web interface over to Raspbian would be possible but very time consuming.

    Yes all ash shell scripts, not even bash !! We have chosen to use basic tools to keep the image size extremely small.
