I am new to Volumio and I had a great start playing with it.
Downloaded the image and flashed it on a card. Fired up Raspi B+ and pointed Safari on my iPad to volumio.local. Bingo, all went well, I then configured the HifiBerry DAC+, did a reboot and played music (sitting on a USB stick) through HifiBerry DAC+
Really easy setup. Worked for me first time, great product!
A network scan (iPad app) on my local network shows
After that I installed this:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-mpd
and tried a simple python script to access mpd for the current song: works just fine.
Now I want to run python scripts like nextbutton and such - need GPIO to do this. So I installed this:
sudo apt-get install python-dev python-pip
sudo pip install RPi.GPIO
But now, sadly, the system no longer works. After reboot the network scan shows
and I am unable to connect to the webgui
I logged in as root from a Terminal on my Mac and I tried to manually restart the mpd but this fails:
root@volumio:~# sudo service mpd start
[…] Starting Music Player Daemon: mpdIllegal instruction
Now, I wonder, how do other people use GPIO pins on Volumio systems? What I am doing wrong?
