Ok.. I have followed your instruction. I can demonize squeezelite, but with the -s, I have this return:

pi@raspbmc:~/.xbmc/addons/script.xsqueeze/resources/bin/arm$ ./squeezelite -s 192.168.0.15
[10:19:49.498720] test_open:124 playback open error: No such file or directory
[10:19:49.500668] output_init_common:372 unable to open output device

And here is my debug

Ok, you're on the right track.

You don't need to daemonize, just:

./squeezelite -l to list the outputs

the ./squeezelite -o DEVICE -m MACID -s SERVER

where DEVICE is the device string given from the -l (see examples above!) - mac ID is something like 11:22:33:44:55:66 (just make this up) and -s 192.168.0.15 assuming that is where LMS is running.



and then post here exactly what it says

In your log I see you have sort of done this?

Attempting to start player: ['/home/pi/.xbmc/addons/script.xsqueeze/resources/bin/arm/squeezelite', '-m', '00:00:00:32:ae:45', '-o', 'hdmi:CARD=PCH,DEV=0', '-s', '192.168.0.15']

...what output does the equivalent give from the command line?

Have you looked at the wiki re: (section 3,2)

3.2 If you are using Raspberry Pi (tried with Raspbmc):

You may need to add the alsa module manually via an ssh connection:

sudo modprobe snd-bcm2835

(and use:

echo "snd-bcm2835" | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

Ok... All is good right now.
I have retried the bcm2835 command line, I have reseted the xsqueeze settings, type my Lms IP address. Xsqueeze has started correctly but with lag in audio. So I tried some delay and the -a:500:10:24:0 works perfectly for me, with no delay between my ipeng player on iPad and xsqueeze.
Thanks for your help, and thanks for your great plug!!

Just rebuilt a new machine and the Squeeze addon you made Bossanova is now incompatible

Any ideas?

Thanks

Probably just need to force refresh your repos.

I noted this in the latest OE release notes

** added experimental ALSA support for RaspberryPi **

...this should mean OE/Pi becomes a viable option for XSqueeze. It will still be a slow, crappy platform, but OE/Pi is about as nippy as a Pi install can be so if I had a Pi, that's that I would be trying out...


@nick w - most likely your issue was, with a fresh install, your addons hadn't finished updating. If you force refresh your repos, this should pull the latest versions of everything with any luck and then XSqueeze should be 'compatible' again, I think.

That was it. Forced a refresh and boom. I'm happy again

Thanks again!!!
