I am stuck on the loading screen of the volumio web application with any PC in my local wifi. But I am able to ping the raspberry pi, see it being connected in the router settings, and am able to ping out and ping some websites.
This is what I did:
Yesterday I tried to configure my raspberry PI 2 B+ with volumio. I downloaded the image volumio-2.201-2017-06-13-pi.img and flashed to SD card with Win32DiskImager. Then I put the SD card to the pi, connected HDMI, a wireless keyboard and a wifi dongle.
I do need to configure for wifi, as there is no ethernet available, so I performed the following steps:
- login with User “volumio” and pw “volumio”
- setup automatic wifi login on star-up
- I set my router to WPA2-PSK security only
- checked installation of wpasupplicant with
$sudo apt-get install wpasupplicant
- opened wpa_supplicant.conf file with
$sudo nano /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
- opened interfaces file
$sudo nano /etc/network/interfaces
out-commenting all other lines, which were already in the file, later I also tried commenting in the first lines again, which did not help either:
- then rebooted with
I checked with
as well as
for valid connection and was (and still am) also able to ping from a PC in my wifi to the raspberry pi.
- setup automatic login with volumio
- went to root mode, added directory and opened autologin file with
$sudo -i $mkdir -pv /email@example.com $nano /firstname.lastname@example.org/autologin.conf
- wrote into file
- enabled service with
$sudo systemctl enable email@example.com
- and rebooted again
The end result is and was, that the user volumio is logged in and wifi connection is established. I checked this from outside with ping and see a valid connection in the router settings as well. My problem is: If I open up a browser on any other PC in the network - be it a wifi connected or cable connected PC - and try to go to volumio.local or 192.168.0.192, I get stuck on the loading screen. I see the faded dark volumio interface and the circle loading sign, but I cannot proceed to the player. I am also not able to connect with my spotify android application.
Additionally I had a very funny inital problem. When I finished the above process the first time, I was not able to connect with any PC, but 1. This one PC was in sleep mode all time. I brought it up and there was an established connection the volumio page in the browser already loaded. I found out that this PC was able to ping the web, but not any other PC in my wifi. I was able to set the spotify account and update volumio. After switching volumio off and on again, this PC was not able to connect to volumio like all others.
I googled that the web interface is not loading and found posts claiming to restart mpd, so I tried without success:
$sudo /etc/init.d/mpd restart
I also tried to stop and start. and deleting the state folder
cd /var/lib/mpd ls /var/lib/mpd rm -i state
But nothing helped up to now.
Do any of you have an idea how to solve this?
