MPD paused forever

Post by myaccount »

Trying to get an "alarm clock" going with mympd and well.. mpd.
At first, it complained a lot but it seems to make do with this one:

Did you reinstall the mpd package? It looks like the default service file is in place now instead of our overwrite and there has not been a package update recently. Also I recognised that the systemd unit (service file) is indeed overwritten on package upgrades/reinstalls and not preserved as config file like e.g. the included SysV service. So we need to place out file at the override location.

However please fix it with:

Code: Select all

cat << _EOF_ > /lib/systemd/system/mpd.service

Quick checkin. Will do.

I first installed the dietpi version and when that one would not recognise 'pulse' as an output at all.

Hence, I took the drastic measurement to A) Apply the fix in op.
But when that did not pan out, I B) installed the debian standard.

Also... on another note, is there really not something for pulseaudio in dietpi/debian-verse like these?

Of course you can install and configure PulseAudio on Debian, you'll find everything in the Debian APT repo you need. Only our software installs by default will be configured to use ALSA directly.

Okay, if you really need PA, then the Debian mpd is the way to go and our service file will just work the same. It is just required to have mpd in the "dietpi" group to grant it R/W access to media files in /mnt/dietpi_userdata/.
