Re: USB Automount

The USB stick has music. The project is The Dementia Friendly Music Player http://dementiamusicplayer.org/. Essentially DietPi + headless VLC + rotary encoders + Python + laser cut bamboo or cherry. DietPi has been consistently excellent for this.

Re: USB Automount

Thanks Michael. I'm always looking for simpler / built-in methods. But if I understand your method correctly, it requires a one-time admin intervention per USB stick. I chose the udev route because it needs to work for someone that downloads the SD card image that I created who then uses their own P...

Re: USB Automount

I approached the problem in a very pragmatic way, so unfortunately I do not have deep answers to your question (wish I did). My need is for a USB drive to automount at boot and for those files to be accessible on a known/predictable path. I found the solution in the usual pragmatic way (Google). My ...

Re: The new Raspberry Pi 4

Do I correctly understand that I can simply install DietPi the normal way on my Pi4? Based on MichaelIng in this thread, "...just made the experimental image the new default download." I don't need Pi4 specific features to work e.g. I don't need dual HDMI (or any HDMI actually). But I do want to ins...

Re: kernel issues with Schiit USB DAC (UAC2, high-speed Isochronous)

I don't have any special info about additional UAC2 support in the 5.X kernel. Just uninformed hope. From what I read, even UAC3 support was baked into 4.19 mainline.

Re: kernel issues with Schiit USB DAC (UAC2, high-speed Isochronous)

Thanks for the definitive response. That lets me move on to other projects. Maybe I'll come back to this one when the Pi Foundation moves to a 5.x kernel.

Re: kernel issues with Schiit USB DAC (UAC2, high-speed Isochronous)

Thanks for the reply! Yes, running 4.19. Alas, the issue persists. Schiit (DAC manufacturer) was very clear in saying that there are UAC2 issues on Pis specifically, but not on "desktop Linux". The person at Schiit that said this seemed well informed. Do you think that upgrading to a mainline kernel...

kernel issues with Schiit USB DAC (UAC2, high-speed Isochronous)

I believe that I am experiencing a kernel issue when using a Schiit Fulla 2 USB DAC / headphone amp. The DAC sounds great, but always freezes after rapidly skipping through tracks. Schiit themselves describe it as a Pi kernel issue. Suggestions? Details: - A very nice and informed person at Schiit s...

Re: USB Automount

I eventually went with the pmount package and some udev rules. It's working well. Whichever USB drive I plug in is automatically available as /media/usb1. I documented the process here: https://github.com/rosswesleyporter/dqmusicbox/blob/master/docs/ADMIN_SD_CARD_CREATION_USB.pdf (look for the pmoun...
