I’m very happy to tell you that SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi (Beta) is ready for download.
SqueezePlug Media-Server version 4.08b1 for Raspberry Pi is based on the existing and very famous versions of SqueezePlug for other ARM based devices like SheevaPlug, Dockstar and GoFlex Net.
I did some hard work to get it running on such a tiny device, but now it’s working great and with a good performance. I ran it for 2 days now stable and have no issues.
SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi offers the same set of features like the versions for all other devices. So SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi has a lot of very cool features:
SqueezePlug is a platform for different Media-Servers:
- Logitech Media Server (f.k.a. Slimserver, SqueezeBox Server)
All these servers are ready to install by a click.
Included features are:
- Support for wireless USB-Sticks
- SqueezeSlave (Media Player running on RPi with no additional HW) Server and player on the same device
- Option to install a SqueezeSlave “Stand Alone Player”
- Scripts for all SqueezePlug configurations
- Samba Server already included
The installation is based on the Debian distribution (debian6-19-04-2012.img). The kernel and all packages are up to date. There is no X-Server or other graphic things installed. They are completely removed. The intention of SqueezePlug is to run a headless Media-Server. So SSH is installed and activated. All you have to do is this:
1. Download, unzip and burn the sd-card
2. Start the Pi and find out the IP-Address (e.g. from an attached monitor or from your router).
3. login with user: root and pw: nosoup4u
4. Choose Raspberry Pi from the initial screen.
5. Reboot the RPi by typing: shutdown -r now
6. Connect again and type: setup
7. Choose the options you need and the scripts will do the rest for you.
