I’m a professional software developer and studied as a Sound Engineer, I Discovered Volumio in the past week and I’m hugely impressed!
I’m a little concerned that the developer seems to be a bit quiet of late so I took matters into my own hands!
Yesterday I decided to see if I could manage to get Volumio running from scratch via a hugely optimised distro called PiBang which is based on Debian. I used the ‘server’ version and I’m pleased to announce that I got it working (with much trial and error) entire installation takes less than 900 MB.
Is anyone interested in a tutorial? it’s basically a case of installing PiBang to sdcard, setting up the software and git cloning the Volumio Webui. It obviously needs a bit of work, but it mounts the USB drive, updates the mpd library etc etc. (currently listening to my Volumio/PiBang tunes as I type)
If there’s any interest I’ll get a tutorial written up.
