Volumio 3 Beta Testing - Odroid images

Please use this topic to discuss errors, missing components or improvement suggestions during the Volumio 3 Buster beta test phase for Odroid.
In this opening and first following post I will keep a list of beta versions, fixes, known problems and important updates.
Before reporting issues, please also refer to Volumio 3 Buster general issues.

Current version
Odroid C0/C1/C1+/ C2/ C4/ N2/ N2+ and XU4
Feel free to try them, most things should work.
I cannot guarantee to fix things immediately.

See these as a preview+, with minimal support for the time being.
Our focus remains the officially supported RPi and X86, however, any resulting bug fix/ improvement will ofc flow into these Odroid versions as well. I will update them when major issues get fixed.

C4 users: please refer to the “Note on DAC Usage” in this thread

3.063 Odroid C4

Not indexing NAS … log full of repeated attempts to start hostapd/hotspot even though no wireless connected.

systemlog.txt (277.7 KB)

this is standard Volumio behavior at the moment, this is an issue on x86 as well. Makes log analysis not easier :wink:
I’ll look into the indexing problems, we seem to have general issues with MPD, so this may be related.

  1. Added USB wifi dongle to get rid of hostapd rubbish in system log. mpd service running ok.

  1. System log looks as though mpd is scanning ok, but no tracks appearing indexed.

systemlog2.txt (129.4 KB)

On my Odroid-N2 is the same problem.

Updated versions published, see OP.

Indexing fine now thank you. Music library in UI disappears & returns occasionally (I’ve seen someone else report this in one of the other beta tests).

hostapd & BT complaints no longer present in log.

Edit: Music library in UI is (possibly) stable … only saw the changes a couple of times in the first period after updating.

interesting, I was not aware of this fix.

XU4 now also added

Now. With Volumiobuster-3.066 it can scan and indexing NAS fully on my Odroid-N2.
Thank for gkkpch very much.

Thank you for providing this. Although I have raspberry pi 4 also, Odroid XU4 is always my favorite…

Running 3.066-2021-04-16 on a C1+.
Not seeing any PlugIns available. I need my RadioParadise fix. :slight_smile:

*** Update *** Just found the “invite” thread, which mentions not to install PlugIns. Guess I need to be patient.

A post was split to a new topic: DACS for Odroid C2

Would it be possible to have an image for 3.101 for a clean flash please?

3.101 will be announced today for RPi, x86 and Tinkerboard.
However, I have not done any alpha testing yet on Odroid devices since 3.066
Perhaps there is time next week, but no promises.

What the improvements of version 3 over version 2?

You don’t really expect to get an answer to that, do you???
Check the forum and read for yourself😉
