[split] Problem installing minimserver in Snakeoil Firmware - 1.2.1 (Gear Isolation U1)
#1
I recently updated to 1.2.1 with Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS. I am receiving the following output on the system console when I try to download minimserver:
 
Code:
*** Name: minimserver Mode: Installing ***

I was able to grab the download using wget and the no certificate modifier, however running the setup shell from my terminal does not fix the issue. I receive similar outputs when I try to download other players. Any suggestions?

Can you check your computer date/time and make sure it's OK? Just SSH into your Snakeoil machine and run date.

If the time is off by a fair bit the SSL certificates may be deemed invalid. When you say download other players, are they all from https://downloads.snakeoil-os.net? Or from other sources?

I ran date and the time matched the result from google. I also tried to update it.
 
Code:
sudo ntpdate time.nist.gov
10 Nov 16:12:32 ntpdate[5088]: adjust time server 132.163.96.6 offset 0.010509 sec
I tried upmpdcli as well. I am only attempting to download from snakeoil, so your download directory is the only source.

I ran blind listening on the same machine without any issues.

I tried reinstalling the firmware from the file sent over WinSCP and received the following:
Code:
# Prepping Your System For Snakeoil.
  + Startup script... Already installed
  + Web server... Job for lighttpd.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See "systemctl status lighttpd.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.

And you still have the certificate error today? This may be a problem with cloudflare for your region, but I havn't encountered this before. Do you run anything special in your home network? Things like TOR, VPN and what not.

If not, then it means your Ubuntu OS is missing ca-certificates. Try and SSH to your Snakeoil machine, and run the following commands.
 
Code:
sudo apt install ca-certificates --reinstall

Hmm. Can you run this command on your Snakeoil PC, and paste it here?
Code:
cat /etc/lighttpd.conf

Code:
~$ cat /etc/lighttpd.conf
cat: /etc/lighttpd.conf: No such file or directory
 
Code:
~$ sudo apt install ca-certificates --reinstall
apt: /usr/local/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.26' not found (required by /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libapt-pkg.so.6.0)
I will try a fresh install tomorrow and provide the outputs again. I am running a normal router internet connection.

A fresh install fixed my issues, except now when I try to play tidal through Mconnect I keep getting "Invalid File Location". Any advice? Also, Thank you for your time and dedication to great sound quality!

What player are you using? LMS?

minimserver (music server)
upmpdcli (music client)
mconnect (tidal streaming android phone)

This combination worked with the blind listening firmware. I want to stream Tidal as my source.

I tried LMS and got it to work. Definitely, a better way of doing things. However, I don't know if it sounds better than MConnect/Blind listening FW. Call me crazy lol. Sounds smoother, I think I had more resolution before. Maybe that's due to the lack of the exclusive mode setting?! Time to play!

Updated impressions: less fatigue and better bass detail and output. Your observations on the wiki-how are spot on. The MConnect/Blind listening had better soundstage but uneven tonality after hearing LMS/Gear Isolation. If there was a way for the yggdrasil (or any dac) to utilize it's reclocking scheme for different bitrates, instead of always being the same then perhaps another veil could be lifted.

It might not be, If you're using 20.04. You can alter the process priority of the programs to make them appear to run in real time (They will show as RT when in top), but the underlying OS itself is actually not running in real time.

Also try cpuset, and see how it goes. <- Been meaning to try this on a non RT kernel and hear what the effects are.

For me, I actually like raw, non-oversampling DACs. It doesn't sound as "clean" (for a lack of better description), but there is a rawness, and the realism of life to music. Granted I havn't focus on the music side of things for a while since I'm putting my head in to try and finish this Snakeoil. But once that completes, I am going to focus more on getting my 16 bit TDA1541 DAC up and running again.

Happy listening, and thanks for using Snakeoil OS.. Big Grin
