This is the third beta release of 0.1.5, featuring some bug fixes. There will not be any updates for a while so please test this firmware out thoroughly and report any bugs in this thread. And hope I can actually get some kind souls to translate Snakeoil to other languages in the meantime.

PROMOTE SNAKEOIL
Now that the Snakeoil Squad think the whole platform is stable enough 90% of time, we now need your help to promote Snakeoil!

If you think Snakeoil is the best sounding system so far, or if you think Snakeoil is the easiest Linux Operating System you have ever used, please promote Snakeoil OS and spread the name of Snakeoil in your social group. At the bottom of every blog post and widget thread is a widget that allows you to share the content you're currently reading on your social media.

Other things you can do is to sign up to the forums and post your testimonial, or better yet do so on other sites [Image: heart.png]. Help and install Snakeoil on your mate's audio system too if you can.

IMPORTANT
Cryo Treatment (0.1.4) will check for type compatibility but prior versions do not. If you are using an older firmware version please double check and download the correct firmware that matches the architecture of your machine. i.e. install the i686 firmware if you are using 32 bit Snakeoil, and amd64 if you are using 64 bit Snakeoil. (Download the amd64 version even if you are using an Intel chip. I know it's weird but we can blame history for that [Image: shrug.png])

I'm wondering is there any methods to install latest beta fw on my mini PC, which is running ubuntu server LTS 16.04 64bit and RoonBridge 64bit.

Snakeoil firmware is the web app (and some software players). It still requires a custom version of Ubuntu to run, and 16.04 is not "streamlined" enough, it's also using systemd by default, which the webapps isn't compatible with.

As such you can't expand the beta firmware on any non-snakeoil OS easily.

The Snakeoil OS itself contained inside the ISO is actually already UEFI compatible (it uses grub2)... It's just the ISO container itself isn't. Quickest and easiest way is to just re-author the ISO into a UEFI image and write it to a USB stick and it will work... I hope to get that ready for the next release but I don't have an ETA yet as I'm still finishing other stuffs.... Apologies for the delay, will let you know once it's done.

Hi agent_kith. Since there is no ETA for next version of ISO image, can you please provide me a guide on how to re-author the current ISO (0.1.4 64bit) into a UEFI image. I will be very happy to follow that.

The earliest I can do that is mid July, when I am back home. Am in Hong Kong at the moment so can't do anything at the moment. Cry

Hi agent_kith. I hope you have some free time to guide me to  re-author the current ISO (0.1.4 64bit) into a UEFI image. Thanks Smile
