    My New Hobby

    Hello,
    I just got started my new hobby! I have the following items

    Intel Nuc 10 w/ Ubuntu 20 32 Gigs Memory
    Mac Mini 2019 3.2GHZ 16 Gigs Memory
    Raspberry Pi 4 and 3b
    Allo Boss Dac
    All music are FLAC files on Google Drive. Use Rclone to mount to LMS.

    Should I install LMS on Mac Mini or Nuc with Ubuntu 20?
    If I go the Ubuntu way how should I install in? via Ubuntu package?

    I will use raspberry pi's with PiCorePlayer, right?

    Any other suggestions?

    Again I just started this

    Instructions for Ubuntu install are here:
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/1188...eezebox-server

    I think you'll have an easier time getting rclone to do what you want on linux, but I'm only guessing here.

    Yes, you use piCorePlayer with your RPi and Allo DAC. Those instructions are here:

    Install Material Skin plugin for modern UI on PC, phone, tablet.

    Good luck!

    Thank you for your reply. Would it better on a nuc or Mac Mini? Would it best not to rclone vs NAS?

    If you are familiar with Linux then I'd go with it. There are important
    cahnges to macOS ahead, and Apple has deprecated the scripting languages.

    This scares me. I’m an all Apple house and was thinking about replacing my ten year old Mac mini which hosts my LMS and local music files. Should I hold off?

    I hate changing anything, since I’ve been trouble free with my current setup for many years, but want to retire my Mini before it finally gives out on me...it’s already starting to be slow to respond.

    I’m down to one SB Touch. Mac Mini as a server (OS X Yosemite). iPeng is my controller of choice. LMS 7.9.0. Erland’s plug ins are what keep me in the ecosystem.

    You can always build a system now and keep off from updating once macOS
    has been crippled enough. Big Sur should still be good (at least the
    latest pre-production builds).

    Lets not start a war here - I used Linux, am using now Apple, and (long) time ago Windows (Windows 2000 mainly). I can’t say that any one is safer with your data than others.
