I am in the process to convert an old Asus eee PC 1000H into a dedicated Volumio player V2.0.
I resolved already some issues like changing to Belgian Azerty, closing the lid is not longer suspending the netbook, booting from an SD card works,
However now I am stuck when I try to use the internal drive to serve music files.
If I go to Browse -> Music Library -> I see NAS (mounted a SAMBA volume), USB (Where I see an attached USB drive, and INTERNAL that remains empty even when the drive is mounted.
First I tried to modify /etc/fstab, but that was always overwritten. I found an old post for V1.X where it was documented how to fix this by editing a php file. However in 2.0 it seems that this is changed and I could not find how to fix it.
So I decided to edit
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
adding content …
mount /dev/sda1 /data/INTERNAL
This works and was verified by logging in with ssh.
volumio@volumio:~$ ls -al /mnt total 12 drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4096 Nov 19 23:28 . drwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4096 Nov 21 20:56 .. lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 14 Nov 19 23:28 INTERNAL -> /data/INTERNAL drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4096 Nov 21 20:11 NAS lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 Nov 19 23:28 USB -> /media volumio@volumio:~$ ls -al /data/INTERNAL/ total 3784 drwxr-xr-x 22 root root 4096 Nov 23 19:59 . drwxr-xr-x 1 volumio volumio 4096 Nov 21 21:37 .. drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 May 1 2016 bin ... lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 May 1 2016 vmlinuz -> boot/vmlinuz-3.19 .0-32-generic -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 3755389 Nov 23 19:59 x.mp3
FYI, the internal drive still contains an older Linux mint distribution and is formatted etx4. But there are a lot of mp3 and flac files in a Music folder.
If I unmount the internal drive, the INTERNAL folder on the user interface disappears. So it seems that the drive is ‘seen’, but I am not able to browse the contents with the Volumio user interface.
I also tried to mount somewhere under media, but that didn’t work either.
Any tips or help how I could resolve this issue?
I think allowing to serve files from an internal drive is a big bonus.
