Sox in /usr/bin? Or in the LMS directory? Once you install SOX in the LMS directory. Reboot the computer and see which one LMS picks up...

lms directory would be ?     /usr/sbin/squeezeboxserver ?

For 64bit systems, it's at /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/Bin/x86_64-linux:
Code:
[email protected]:/usr/share/squeezeboxserver/Bin/x86_64-linux$ ls -l
total 8264
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1304904 Oct 15  2016 faad
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1902394 Oct 15  2016 flac
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4995368 Oct 15  2016 sox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  251472 Oct 15  2016 wvunpack

You'd need to rename the downloaded file back to sox, and things would work again.

Aha I see where I have being going wrong . Thanks ! found the downloaded package but permissions are not as you show.

I have been downloading as sudo as my user. Do I need to do that as root ?   Snakeoil ? password ?

when you run "sudo", you're doing it as root. e.g. something like:
Code:
sudo mv sox-dsd-linux-gnu-amd64 sox


Seems this file is even smaller than the stock version. Think I'd update sox on the official ISO build then.. Save a few bytes Big Grin .

ok, now looks like this....
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1304904 Mar  9 03:00 faad
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1902394 Mar  9 03:00 flac
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3185432 Mar 15 04:20 sox
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  251472 Mar  9 03:00 wvunpack

and after reboot C-3PO still lists - SOX/usr/bin/sox  -- Version140401 NOT dsd capable

OK I have chmod 755 sox and awaiting reboot... fingers crossed this time...

Yes can confirm that sox is now used from the LMS directory..!  But still not doing mp3..... and C-3PO settings now says C-3PO doesn't work with lossy formats but shows mp3 as a valid input format ???  odd ?!?  and it does work with mp3 in Daphile..
I will try clearing cache and rebooting...
What fun !! Learning heaps !!

This sox version dsd capable...... I will have to try it with my other dac.. :-)

I'm learning lots too from you. Thumbs Up Going to add this special edition of Sox for the next ISO release. So people will have less trouble when using C-3PO plugin.

Thinking about this.....
tomorrow I will boot Daphile on the same hardware and look in ....
/usr/share/squeezeboxserver/Bin/x86_64-linux

I suspect that I will find lame and ffmpeg as well as sox etc.

If so I will copy those packages on the Snakeoil install across to /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/Bin/x86_64-linux and see if that works....;_)

If it wasn't for the Creative dac doing such a bad job of resampling everything to 48kHz I wouldn't bother.
However if resampling in software to 96kHz for mp3 and streams works then there should be a sonic benefit.
#19
Added lame mp3-decode  mp123 and ffmpeg to /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/Bin/x86_64-linux  and still no resampling of streams or mp3.
All good, will leave it at that unless anyone has other suggestions. :-)

However, found that the ralph-irving git squeezelite  has all the R2 goodness baked in and is invoked by adding   -W    to the "enter additional squeezelite parameters here " checkbox.   Smile Cool Cool

I'd look into this some time later and get back to you.

The R2 has something other Squeezelites don't though, native DSD support. Apparently Triode from Daphile has a patch for that but I can never find it, but I think the link is mentioned somewhere in the R2 link. Again something to look at in due time.
