Note when using volumio 2.882 or later with NanoSound CD

When installation NanoSound CD on volumio version 2.882 or later, there is a bug which prevent a successful installation. Fortunately, there is a work around:

Enable SSH under volumio

Method 1: Edit sources.list manually

  • Using a terminal software such as Putty, SSH into volumio.local , default user name and password are both “volumio”
SSH into volumio
  • add temporary the debian stretch source to install the dependecies
sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
  • add this line:
deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian/ stretch main contrib non-free rpi
  • update the package list:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install binutils
sudo apt-get install libstdc++-4.9-dev
sudo apt-get install gcc-4.9 gcc g++-4.9 g++ dpkg-dev
  • remove the line again from source from sources.list

Method 2: Run Script

  • Make sure NanoSound CD is not installed
  • Using putty or terminal in mac, ssh to volumio.local
    • eg. in terminal in mac , run:
    • ssh volumio@volumio.local
    • when asked about continue connecting type: “yes
    • Enter password: “volumio
  • install unzip and dos2unix
    • sudo apt-get install unzip
    • sudo apt-get install dos2unix
  • get the script
    • wget https://community.volumio.org/uploads/short-url/dxLoHCHS6zbt8HGZGoyELmLacvo.zip
  • unzip the file
    • unzip dxLoHCHS6zbt8HGZGoyELmLacvo.zip
  • Above will unzip a file called Workaround_BuildEssentials.sh, Make it executable
    • chmod +x Workaround_BuildEssentials.sh
    • dos2unix Workaround_BuildEssentials.sh
  • Run it
    • ./Workaround_BuildEssentials.sh
  • Install NanoSound CD from repository
