I have the same problems some others have had. I have RPi B+ and I installed Volumio 1.4 on a new, freshly formatted SD card. At power on the device boots from the card. At some point it comes to “failed! startpar service(s) returned failure: transient log …cat: /run/player_wrk.pid: no such file or”
Below this appears “volumio” and “Free Audiophile Linux Music Player - Version Beta1.4”
I’ve tried typing volumio/local (or volumio/local) from my laptop on the same network but nothing. I’ve tried entering an IP address but I’m not sure which of the many listed in my router application was assigned to the device. I have tried all the likely IPs from the list but nothing. I dont think the device is on the network (I did connect an ENET cable); it doesnt’ appear in my windows explorer like other network devices. I cannot ssh into from Putty because, again, I do not know the IP address.
What is the expected behavior? Am I supposed to get the “failed!” and then find the UI through a browser with volumio/local? Then what? A wondeful web GUI? Is that the expected behavior?
Note: The RPi B+ did work this week with XBMC installed…it booted, was recognized on the network, found the external USB hard drive, was seen by my AVR and my TV.
