USB Boot in Pi

It would be really useful if Volumio supported Pi USB boot (especially since the newer devices have USB 3).

I tried it on a device that successfully boots from USB on Linux, but no luck :frowning:

I spent hours trying to get this working before learning that it can’t be done, at least not with the provided installer :slight_smile: I also would love to run the RPi from an SSD via USB3.

This is not supported by Volumio yet.
Booting from usb requires 2 things:

  • RPi must be enabled to boot from usb: the user needs to ensure the PI has adequate firmware. Google and you will find several places to help you with enabling boot from usb.

  • Volumio boot needs to be modified.
    This will be done at one point, but our current focus is on migrating Volumio to buster.
    It has not been planned yet.

@gkkpch NO, this will not be done because it’s asked many times and nobody wants to create it… got many times a NO when asked…

all they will do is reffer you to some old posts before it even could be made ( 2017 )
and that’s it … gkkpch … so good luck with that one…

they don’t see the need of it because it all loaded in ram …ect. bull…

i already tested it with raspian OS and it even could get rid of all the drop frames in video,
load times, access times ect it’s mutch faster…

and asked the people who had to create it … now many times…

(sorry for shouting but i’m asking it already for a year now …it’s nagging me a bit…)

No reason to shout!
This is because there are technical reasons why this cannot be done at the moment, we first need to change the boot cmdline, incl. initramfs, the same way other boards (like Khadas) already use it.
An initramfs redesign has been planned and early work has started. When that’s done, there are no more technical reasons stopping an implementation.
Nothing will change, there will be no different image, just that it won’t make a difference whether is was flashed to an SD or a USB Stick (or future emmc).

i hope so because i got already hard NO’s …because it would not bennifit from it they say…
and i’m not angry… i’m only sad many will ruun over because volumio getting behind …
first with switching to a newere OS and let the people get stuck on broken and old shit…
and a secure volumio wasn’t there for a long time …

and the team does it’s best but were still behind …
ey ash your working hard on the 3.xx tnx for that…

if you really want to run Volumio from SSD as soon as possible, please feel free to have a look to the github repos and work on the feature!

if i could i would …@Darmur… i’m a windows based guy so i can’t
i’m first not a programmer so coding is out of the question
second i’m only a A+ I+ N+ and some web dev. but i’m already out of it for 10 years…
and a.s.a.p. Darmur it already a year old this question so …
volumio isn’t back to the future… so it’s never a.s.a.p only a year later and still nothing…
it’s starting to sound like old album …

all i can do is try to help on the forum and i think that i do that…

At the end of the day, please remember that (most of) Volumio is a GPL licenced piece of software. People are welcome to improve/tweak things as they please. If those changes are helpful for the community, they will probably get merged into the main tree as Volumio see fit.

Also please remember that most of us here are just like you – we enjoy tinkering with these things, but this is something that we do during our free time :slight_smile:

Either way, I had some time in my lunch break and was curious so looked into this and figured out a really quick way to get things running - not all features work, but this should (mostly) work on a pi4, but don’t expect help when things break :wink:

Good luck :slight_smile:

I would love to see some benchmarks of this on a SSD/USB device vs an SD Card when it comes to (booted) Volumio performance…

@ashthespy do you know any benchmarks that should work ?
my ssd is a usb stick and not a m.2 that could even go twice as fast as what ik have …
the stick comes around the middle of the max that it could be so you will get a fair reading.
burning it to the stick at the moment i gonna break off the test for the youtube plugin found
a bug in it but run that later again… and i know that you and the rest of the team are working hard,
to make it better and i’m trying to give you and the team a bit of air to make it possible taking a lot of newbies by the hand and give them the anwsers that i know from the time i spend with volumio
and the anwsers that you and the rest of the team gave me …
and asking a butcher to make a good bread is a bit stupid … that’s like a teachers that has to do a ICT job they will screwing it up in every way you could think off so if i could i would… i got other skills in the ICT branch aka a trouble shooter fixing problems and not writing programs…
so on that part i could not help

first test :
boot time 45 sec from pressing restart till the screen re-load so around 10 sec on that sd 53-55sec.
radio - not faster… because of loading time of the stream.
scanning 3464 tracks in 4.7 sec on ssd
it seems that my ssd is already very slow …
benchmark i use is :
sudo curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/TheRemote/PiBenchmarks/master/Storage.sh | sudo bash

https://storage.jamesachambers.com/ as ref. but i cuts the speed in half running test with running volumio
Brand: SanDisk Extreme Pro USB - storage.jamesachambers.com

overall it wil do some faster local scanning, local songs and boot time
for the rest i’m missing the speed it’s slower then the 3.10 and 3.15
so i think volumio is not using the speed that it could because raspbian OS is fast

youtube pluging has some strange things saying that it’s longer but cutting still on the end of the song
4.34 it saying now on many rivers to cross but cut off on 4.25 the end of the song…
this is all with the new release… is there a way to copy your changes to older versions the 3.10 or 3.15
normal speed of ssd should be around of 4300 of score now it doesn’t get by the half…
could it be volumio slowing all down … but there are still that could run up to 12000 score so it would make a big change for them running it over the m.2 modules they are really fast ( in pc ) on the low side a score 8617 that’s 4 times mine … external things we don’t controle but scan and local we could speed up incl. boot time…and some calculating plugins we could speed up

Your findings are the very reason why this is such a low priority on the TODO list as initially explained all those months ago :wink:

Once the system has booted up, I don’t reckon you would see much difference in the operation of the system. This is because Volumio doesn’t have much file IO based workload, and minimal write operations*.
So the gains from faster read/write speeds aren’t really going to be that apparent. Sure Volumio has to load and play music, but if you music is already on a device with fast read speeds (say USB/SSD), you should see similar load and scan speeds.

You have to really remember that Volumio is NOT Raspbery Pi OS. It is like saying on my PC, Windows 10 is fast, but once I start installing some applications and doing work in Chrome + Microsoft Office my PC is slower…

Also I find it hard to understand these “fast” and “slow” terms without proper numbers. What you want to measure isn’t how fast the read/write speeds are of the device, but how responsive Volumio is on it. Unfortunately tracking the performance of Volumio isn’t the highest priority currently, so I am unaware of any quantitative performance benchmarks one could run.

PS: The Raspberry PI isn’t the only device Volumio runs on, unlike Raspberry Pi Os :wink:

*: Personal opinion from my limited understanding of the codebase, I could be wrong here…

the respond times on the 3.20 are way slower then the stripped 3.10 i had
my understanding is that the base of volumio is to old to get the full advanced options of the new
versions if all new can volumio should adapt to a new version to get the best out of it …
so loading from ram is now the new botelneck ram is slower then ssd :slight_smile: i even was trying zram to switch
but in this case is doesn’t bother a lot … the coding seems to old to run fast on the pi …
i learned never learn a old dog new tricks because it wil suck …
and now we have to learn new dogs to eat from the bowl… instead of the dream eating kfc :stuck_out_tongue:

and fast and slow responce times so if it’s responding direct or takes 5-10 sec to react,
or finish the command given…

it seems that in some parts it’s responce is fast but in all over it’s slower in responce
if i compare it with a sd that i runned in the past 3.10 - 3.15 it’s slower in responce
as it’s not fast it takes 15 sec between songs…on youtube2,Radio. i didn’t see this with sd

ash is there already 3.20 for sd some where to check if it got the same
strange mismatch of the end time of the songs on yt2 plugin…
and will test if it has the same gap of 15 sec between songs with the plugin…

You should be able to use the same image on your SD card - let me know if that doesn’t work…

@ashthespy ash the 3.20 version is not usable…
can’t play youtube any more re-install 3.20

Greetings @dvo as previously mentioned, this image was primarily to test two things

  • If USB booting Volumio on the Pi was possible.
  • See if it made any difference to the speed of the system.

If it works from both a SD card and a USB device, then from my side the test is complete.
As for the matter for speed of the system again without benchmarks/measurements of how Volumio runs, calling something “fast” or “slow” is pointless without reproduceable numbers if you ask me.

I did try to add some rudimentary benchmarks of startup time a long time ago, but AFAIK, there hasn’t been any work on proper performance measurements for Volumio…

For errors with the youtube2 plugin, well you need to figure things out with that plugin.

ok i will say not anything any more and gonna look for a better solution…
have fun ash take care…
