Is it possible to add the RompR or/and O!MPD MPD clients?
They would be good alternative to myMPD.

As the title suggest, Squeezeboxserve starts regardless of which server is selected.  It even starts when no server is selected.

  Should Cloud-Init be removed from SnakeOil?
Posted by: Snoopy8 - 14-Jul-2021, 06:34 AM - Forum: Support & Troubleshooting - Replies (1)

Getting messages about Cloud-Init on the terminal after boot.  Disabled it by creating an empty file using this command: sudo touch /etc/cloud/cloud-init.disabled.

Should I go further and remove Cloud-Init?

  Anybody know anything about /etc/udev triggers for autoripping?

SO I can't seem to get my udev script to work in order to start up abcde for auto ripping.  

my udev rule is in a file called: 


and it contains the following line

    SUBSYSTEM=="block", KERNEL=="sr0", ACTION--"change",  RUN+="/usr/bin/cdautoinsert &"

which should run the following script /usr/bin/cdautoinsert if a CD is inserted:



   /bin/abcde -NVP | tee /var/log/abcde-auto.log  


I can only get this script to run if I run it directly with sudo.  I can't seem to get it to start on CD insert or without sudo from the command line. Part of that I realize is a permissions thing,  but I can't seem to get to any of it on inserting a CD.

Anyone have any experience here?
