Support for my Allo DigiOne is somewhat limited.

Drivers are available only problem is that it needs to be used with the latest kernel.

It turns out that simply updating the kernel brakes a lot of the ready made imgs, so I set about looking for an img that had support for the dac.

My only option was Volumio, so I thought then I stumbled across a player suite called MoOde.

moodeaudio.org

This is very different from Volumio as you have to “build” the img it’s not difficult just a tad long winded.

Installation uses a script to build the img and a usb flash drive.

You first download an img to micro sd card, enable ssh by making a file called ssh, in the boot area of the img.

Then you need to boot the Pi up and log in to the Pi via ssh.

Then run these commands:

cd /home/pi
sudo wget -q http://moodeaudio.org/downloads/mos/mosbuild.sh -O /home/pi/mosbuild.sh
sudo chmod +x /home/pi/mosbuild.sh
sudo ./mosbuild.sh

It does take a while to run through, only plug in the flash drive when the automated script asks you to!

Once you have “made” the img, remove from the Pi and use win32diskimager (or similar) to clone the usb flash drive.

Once you have a cloned img, simply flash that cloned img to the micro sd card, and boot your Pi.

First boot up does take a long time.

Once booted go to http://moode.local/ or http://moode.local./

The configuration pages are really easy to follow.

Nas setup is under the Sources option.

If you added Spotify to your img you will need to run an update.

Run these commands via ssh

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Right near the end it will ask you if you would like to replace the www conf file, hit NO! (Very important)

Spotify is working again :cool:

Do you still need "- get" ?

Ubuntu etc. have dropped that and simplified commands to "apt update", "apt upgrade" etc.

I rather assume this applies across all Linux derivatives?

No idea tbh. I didn’t know that.

I was forced to do the upgrade as Spotify stopped working just after I updated the app on my phone.

As well as tidal and qubuz embedded, you can also add google music via this command in your ssh terminal.

sudo pip install gmusicapi

Keen to try this but not getting very far! when I enter 'sudo ./mosbuild.sh' there's no error but it comes straight back to the prompt. What should I be seeing?

Yes I know what you mean, to install this you need to another usb stick to build the img on, the timing of plugging in the second stick is critical.

As you have to flash Raspbian with ssh enabled, then run the setup and plugin the usb stock when prompted.

It should run through, It took me a few attempts.

Good luck.

If you do get stuck let me know and I will compile and upload the img. It will be an hour or so before I can do that.
