[Update: 31 May 2016]
64 bit networking is working now. Please see end of post for known issues, and please comment if you have any problems/issue with this current ISO.


Streamlined the releases a bit, I'm not going to differentiate between CPUs now, only architectures. After you have installed Snakeoil onto your system, you can upload a custom kernel to take advantage of your processor if need be.

At the moment, Snakeoil supports these architectures: 
  • Intel/AMD 32 bit
  • Intel/AMD 64 bit
Note that you cannot mix architectures (i.e.g cannot upload 32 bit firmware to a 64 bit snakeoil machine). Although 64 bit CPUs can execute 32 bit code just fine, 64 bit Snakeoil is missing 32 bit libraries required for the software players to function. I'd be working on a Raspberry Pi edition in due time.

Some important links for new users If you are new to Linux and LiveCD, watch this walkthrough video of how to do a Snakeoil installation:

  • kernel 4.4.9-rt17 (No more distinction between atom vs generic now)
  • Upgraded all Ubuntu 14.04.04 LTS packages to the latest available today
  • Don't prompt user to hit ENTER when shutting down or reboot
Firmware Changelog since 0.1.3 (Cable Lifter)   
  • More progress feedback while performing firmware upgrade
  • Check for problems when performing firmware upgrade, and print out errors
  • Added sanity checks to not allow installation of firmware with different architecture
  • Silence an error when mounting drives
  • Support RoonBridge for 64bit systems (manual RoonBridge install required)
  • Fixed Squeezelite extras bug [Credit: a.dent]
  • Fixed bug where kernel boot option is not read properly [Credit: JD1]
  • After kernel upgrade, text now correctly says reboot is in the system tab [Credit: JD1]
  • Filename has a new string, i686 for 32 bit firmware, and x86_64 for 64bit
  • Firmware and Kernel upgrade are now well tested and made available to the normal users now (available in System tab)
  • You can install deb files now from the Snakeoil tab
    [Image: tab_snakeoil_deb.png]
  • Repo code.google.com no longer available. As such, added new Squeezelite from Ralph Irving
  • Support HQPlayer's NAA and Plex's PlexMediaServer, requires manual installation
  • System tab now moved to the 2nd last
  • Multiple web back end stability fixes
  • Split Home Tab into two: Home and System
  • Theme switching support (in System tab). Select from - Default, Blue on White and Grey on White
  • Fixed a bug where squeezelite can't lock memory (prevents swapping) and set priority of output thread
  • Fixed a bug where you can't clear software player options (credit: Doncentric)
  • Added option to clear the system cache. Available in the Home tab, click the Clear Cache button to reinitialise the cache. May be useful if you leave the machine running for a long time (e.g. > 3 hours), or after a database rescan

  • When you click the Shutdown Machine button above, the browser will re-direct to the snakeoil website after 5 seconds
  • Changed the button colour (to the snake oil drop colour)
  • Changed all references of register to activate
  • Make some cosmetic changes to the user interface
  • For people who has activated their snakeoil machine, you now have the ability to adjust kernel boot up options

Known Issues: 
  • 64 bits: squeezelite can't seem to set output thread priority. Still investigating the reason for this.Confirmed fixed in 0.1.5-pre-release-20160613
  • 64 bits: Uploading new kernels not working, go here to download fix.

Tried using the 'Intel/AMD 64 bit ISO' version on my Intel i5. For some reason it can't set up a network. During booting it shows the message "Booting system without full network configuration".

This is the content of the /etc/network/interfaces

# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Hmm. I think @a.dent has the same issue too.

Can you login to the system, and run "dmesg|grep eth0". Is the interfae renamed to something else? say p1p2 or something?

Maybe something with a new kernel being used?
This is the result of dmesg | grep eth0

e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eth0: registered PHC clock
e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eth0: (PCI Express :2.5GT/s:Width x1) xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx (=MAC address)
e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eth0: Intel® PRO/1000 Network Connection
e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eth0: MAC: 11, PHY: 12, PBA No: FFFFFF-0FF
e1000e 0000:00:19.0 eth0: em1: renamed from eth0
systemd-udevd[2750]: renamed network interface eth0 to em1

try and update /etc/nework/interfaces to the following
 
Code:
# interfaces(5) file used by ifup(8) and ifdown(8)
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto em1
iface em1 inet dhcp


i.e. replace eth0 to em1, then reboot and see if that works.

This Ubuntu udev "feature" of renaming network interface names is really starting to get frustrating [Image: confused.png]. And this renaming didn't happen in my test setup, and why I missed it [Image: dodgy.png] .

I have adapted the file like you said but it didn't work.
Note that when I adapt the file it saves it in the casper-rw partition.
After the system restarts it seems that this file gets overwritten by the default again.
Is there a way to prevent that?

I missed out "auto eth0" also, change that to em1. Did that work? I wonder how persistent partition works, perhaps the timestamp of the file in the persistent partition is older than the one on the ISO? (I'm in Perth, so that's +8 UTC).

Uploading a new ISO that should fix this issue (it'd can be anywhere from 90 minutes to 3 hours).

Unfortunately need you and a.dent to help me verify if this new ISO will work as my Jetway 2600 don't rename the NIC (interface eth0 is not renamed unlike you guys).

You stated: " I missed out "auto eth0" also, change that to em1......"
What do you mean with that? Is that somewhere else than in the same interfaces file?

See post number 5, make sure the last 2 lines of the interfaces file says em1.
