    Possible to install pCP headless on a RPi?

    Hi all, is it possible to install pCP attached to an ethernet cable so that a DHCP server can be reached but without a display?
    TIA!

    RPi 3B with Hifiberry AMP2 and official 7" touchscreen (Squeezelite + Jivelite), connected over LAN
    RPi 3B+ as dedicated player, connected over LAN
    2x RPi 3B as dedicated player, connected over WiFi
    LMS material app on Android to control

    Installation is by burning an image to an SD card.
    If you mean the next step of configuration then yes you do not need a monitor or keyboard.
    Boot up the Pi with SD card in place.
    Look at your DHCP server for its address
    Point browser at http://PIaddress

    I do it all the time.....look at your DHCP server, or you can watch LMS for a new player to connect. The default player name is piCorePlayer.
    piCorePlayer a small player for the Raspberry Pi in RAM.

    Please donate if you like the piCorePlayer

    I was trying with pcp5.0 on a RPi4, found out later that there is a 6.0 beta and of course now it boots/connects.
    Thanks!

    Hi Rnee - running pCP headless is the normal (standard) way. If you add Jivelite on top (an add-on module), then you get a screen ...

    Yes I know cfuttrup, I do run 2 headless and 1 with the official 7" touchscreen and Jivelite.
    The point was on how installing them, not running.

    Hi Rnee

    OK, in this case I think d6jg answered your question. Is that correct?
