I’m new to Volumio and first of all I want to say thank you for this great project! I installed Volumio yesterday and everything works out of the box or with only little effort. Also the handling is very convenient. I am more than impressed!
There is one little problem left:
For my usecase, I wanted the music stored to a drive directly connected to my Raspberry Pi 3. I therefore bought a WDLabs PiDrive with 1 TB storage. The package also included a 4 GB sd card.
I read, that 4 GB is below the recommended size for the SD card. On the other hand, my hard drive has plenty of space. I therefore reserved a partition of 10 GB on my HDD. However, my problem is, that I don’t know how to make Volumio use this partition.
On other systems, it is enough to copy everything from the root ("/") to the hard drive partition and change
In Volumio this seems to be a bit different.
First of all, there is no root entry in “/boot/cmdline.txt”.
Furthermore (and most likely connected to that), as Volumio primarily works in a ramdisc (I think it does?), it doesn’t seem like a good idea to copy the already mounted files to the hard disc.
My idea would be to copy the content of the sd card to /dev/sda1 and then change something in “/boot/cmdline.txt” - maybe
but I am quite unsure if this would work.
Can you help me to use the hard drive for my Volumio installation without breaking anything?
Thank you in advance!
