New MPD user service mpd.service instead of my-mpd.service
Changed location and name of MPD configuration file from /home/audiolinux/.mpdconf to /home/audiolinux/.mpd/mpd.conf
If you are using MPD you should stop and restart it

Menu 437
Modified options for CPU scaling driver:
1) acpi_cpufreq
2) intel_pstate
3) amd_pstate
4) amd_pstate epp (only for recent custom kernel >= 6.0.9)
-> It is recommended to set another time scaling driver for AMD CPU to update kernel line with the new options

Menu 435
To avoid long compilation time, new custom kernel script will offer a quick installation for some CPU.
At this moment pre-compiled kernels are available for SKYLAKE, ZEN3, ALDERLAKE
Please check MARCH in SHOW configuration (Main menu)
On request I can add other pre-compiled kernels

AudioLinux is based on realtime custom kernels and on the work of that part of linux community trying to achieve very low audio and processor latencies. The results are not audiophile subjective suggestions, but real and measurable. You can make a processor latency test yourself clicking on the oscilloscope test inside Realtime Priority folder on the Desktop. No magic hidden code, but only the magic of music. AudioLinux can be used in Audio Pro studio recording because of stability and freedom from glitches. With a powerful CPU is perfect for extreme upsampling (up to DSD1024  or PCM 1536 kHz). What about the sound? Clean, transparent, the last veil is removed... and a quick and complete support that no one is giving in Linux. Your system will be fine-tuned for the absolute best performance.

--> Support is complete for installation on USB stick or internal HD, but if you need help for a dual boot with Windows, because you are not a linux expert, a further payment of € 30 is necessary. I need a lot of time, a lot of emails to support a customer in this case.

If you are a company that is selling a Streamer/Audio PC and you want a custom version of AudioLinux please contact us at audiolinux@fastmail.fm
AUDIOLINUX HEADLESS/LXQT mini GUIDE

* In the last versions Audiolinux has 7 configuration menus and most of what is reported below can be made directly with menus

--> For general support consult first the wiki at
https://wiki.archlinux.org
--> If you have installed to internal drive, you should have also audiolinux on a USB stick, in case of operations that cannot be made from inside (boot problems, hard disk check, etc.)

PASSWORDS

user, ssh, NoMachine: audiolinux
sudo, root, samba: audiolinux0

hqplayerd web interface:
user: audiolinux
password audiolinux (or audiolinux0)

FILE EDITING

* In audiolinux lxqt you can use pcmanfm-qt file explorer (click on the red icon on the bottom bar for root editing)

An easy method to work with files for edit, copy etc. is to use Midnight Commander. Type
mc
for starting it

otherwise you can use nano
nano full-file-path
Example:
nano /etc/fstab

ROOT USER

How to switch to root user:
Type
su
and give the password audiolinux0
You can return to normal user with
exit

For poweroff and reboot, you can use sudo in a user (not root) terminal:
sudo poweroff
sudo reboot


RAM MODE

Ramroot option is the last that should be enabled once your system is fully configured. It is recommended at least 16GB RAM for lxqt version (8 GB for AudioLinux headless)

Before enabling ramroot you should edit as root the file /etc/ramroot.conf For example, if you have 16000 MB total RAM, you could give 4000 to RAM memory and 12000 to ZRAM

To load the entire system at boot, type (as root)
ramroot -E
To disable ramroot
ramroot -D


--> if you are using Roon, please take into account that Roon database will take some space, please be sure that the drive and ram size are enough

When in ram mode you can use the command ramsave This command will save the system when in ram mode (otherwise all changes will be lost)

For system modification and system update we suggest however to boot in normal mode answering N to ramroot boot prompt. Modifications to the file /etc/fstab will be saved only in normal mode. For kernel update you must disable ramroot, see section
UPGRADING THE SYSTEM

REMOTE CONNECTION

* In audiolinux lxqt you can connect to graphical Desktop with NoMachine, if you install it in Windows, Linux, smartphone. With NoMachine remote Desktop you can start headless without graphical Desktop and access AudioLinux in a virtual Desktop identical to the default one. After your configuration is finished, you can switch back to headless with a simple logout.

* From Audiolinux menu 214 new Web Interface at ipaddress://5001touch screen compatible and with search function.
To install it go to INSTALL menu and select 0 "Install new web interface 2 (beta)"
You can enable/disable it in EXPERT menu selecting 10 "WEB INTERFACE 2 enable/disable"
Search function is very useful: typing main, audio, system, update or expert you can see on the left column the options of classic menu.

You can also connect remotely with a browser at the address http://ipaddress:8500

You can access audiolinux headless from another computer with ssh:
ssh audiolinux@ip-address
If you want to use a file browser from another pc, you can use the protocol sftp
sftp://audiolinux@ip-address
--> you can check the ip address for audiolinux with
ip addr show

--> From Windows you can use Putty
--> From Android JuiceSSH

UNIFIED REMOTE

* In audiolinux lxqt you can control your system from your smartphone or tablet with unified remote. See https://www.unifiedremote.com/

To enable it, start lxqt configuration, go to Session settings/Autostart and enable "Unified Remote"
Unified remote is started with the command:
opt/urserver/urserver --daemon


NETWORK

Audiolinuxm has an automatic configuration that will permit to connect immediately after the first boot
However, for a more stable network configuration, follow the steps reported below.
---> if you have more than one card, add a second configuration file in /etc/systemd/network/

Look for your network name with
networkctl
Example:
[audiolinux@archlinux ~]$ networkctl
 1 lo               loopback           carrier     unmanaged 
 2 enp3s0           ether              routable    configured


If your network is enp3s0 (yours will be most probably different) change as root /etc/systemd/network/auto.network from

[Match]
Name=en*

[Network]
DHCP=yes


to

[Match]
Name=enp3s0

[Network]
DHCP=yes


and reboot

DHCP=yes will allow both ipv4 and ipv6
See wiki at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/systemd-networkd

You can change from DHCP to a static address modifying the file /etc/systemd/network/auto.network from

[Match]
Name=en*

[Network]
DHCP=yes


to

[Match]
Name=en*

[Network]
Address=192.168.1.5/24
Gateway=192.168.1.1
DNS=8.8.8.8

--> change Address, Gateway and DNS to your preferred values.

For WiFi, provided that your adapter is recognized by linux, a simple how-to can be found here
The relevant wiki section is here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Systemd-networkd#Wireless_adapter
For wpa-supplicant:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/WPA_supplicant

AUDIO AND OTHER SERVICES

* In audiolinux lxqt MPD, LMS, squeezelite and Spotify (spotifyd) are already installed.

In audiolinux headless Roon and HQPlayer embedded are already installed.
The new Menu is already prepared for MPD, LMS, Squeezelite and Spotify. For installing these applications, go to the section OTHER AUDIO APPLICATIONS

With systemctl you can stop, start, restart or enable the services at boot. In the commands where there is not "--user" you must switch to root user (see above)

Examples:

Starting and enabling hqplayerd:
systemctl --user start hqplayerd
systemctl --user enable hqplayerd


Starting and enabling Roon:
systemctl start roonserver
systemctl enable roonserver


Starting and enabling naa:
systemctl --user start networkaudio
systemctl --user enable networkaudio


You can stop or disable, changing start to stop and enable to disable.

If you need to enable samba:
systemctl enable smb
systemctl enable nmb

and reboot
Note: the directories /home/audiolinux/Downloads and /home/audiolinux/Music are already set as samba share

--> For showing enabled systemd services:
systemctl list-unit-files | grep enabled
For user services:
systemctl --user list-unit-files | grep enabled

Note 1: You can add some delay in starting hqplayerd or networkaudio. For this, go as root to
/usr/lib/systemd/user/networkaudio.service
or
/usr/lib/systemd/user/hqplayerd.service
and take out the # in front of the line
# ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 30
Default is 30 seconds, you can change this to a different value.

Note 2: When configuring hqplayerd at http://localhost:8088/auth or http://localhost:8088/config please be sure to select Scope --> user at top left, since audiolinux is using the user directory /home/audiolinux/.hqplayer/ for configuration files and license

Note 3: If you are using Roonbridge in more than one computer take into account that: "RoonBridge generates and writes out a unique id into its data directory on first run and uses that to identify itself to RoonServer. Clear out /var/roon on the second device (or hunt down and delete the RAATServer/Settings/unique_id file) and it will generate itself a new one next time it starts up."

UPGRADING THE SYSTEM

For updating a single application:
pacman -Sy (update the database)
pacman -S name-of-application
if this application is in AUR database (as HQPlayer, Roon, etc.)
yay -S name-of-application
Example for updating hqplayerd and roon:
yay -S hqplayer-embedded roonserver roonbridge

For updating the system (expert users)
yay -Syu

For system modification and system update you must boot in normal mode answering N to ramroot boot prompt.

OTHER AUDIO APPLICATIONS

* In audiolinux lxqt mpd, logitechmediaserver, Squeezelite and Spotify are already installed

In headless last versions you have the option to install these packages from update menu

Squeezelite + LMS installation:
pamac build logitechmediaserver-git squeezelite-git
Configuration file for squeezelite: /etc/squeezelite.conf
For listing available devices:
squeezelite -l

T
he systemd service can be started with
systemctl start squeezelite


MPD and UPnP installation:
pamac build mpd upmpdcli
Configuration file for MPD: /home/audiolinux/.mpdconf
The systemd service can be started with
systemctl start my-mpd


-> Please note that these commands will install the application and many dependencies, so audiolinux size will increase and as a consequence boot time in ram mode.

INSTALLING NEW KERNEL

In the last versions you can update kernel from audiolinux update menu

Installing new audiolinux realtime kernel.
Go to https://www.audio-linux.com/ftp/packages/kernel/last//linux-rt-bfq and download at least linux-rt-bfq-* and linux-rt-bfq-headers-*
After install the new kernel with pacman -U followed by the names of the packages.

*** If you are running in ram mode, reboot answering N at boot prompt to boot in normal mode.
-> If you cannot connect to a monitor/keyboard you must disable ramroot before updating the kernel:
1) DISABLE ramroot with
ramroot -D
2) Reboot
3) Install the new kernel
4) Reboot
5) Eventually re-enable it with
ramroot -E
6) Reboot

REALTIME PRIORITY

For testing:
Type
rttest

For checking realtime status:
rtstatus

Manual realtime priority is controlled by rtirq and rtapp. In standard /etc/rtirq.conf priority is given to usb xhci devices:
RTIRQ_NAME_LIST="xhci"
Change xhci to snd if you are using an internal audio card

Suggested realtime configurations:

1) Standard
/etc/rtirq.conf
RTIRQ_PRIO_HIGH=90
RTIRQ_PRIO_DECR=5
/etc/rtapp/rtapp.conf
MAX_PRIORITY="80"


2) Extreme
/etc/rtirq.conf
RTIRQ_PRIO_HIGH=95
RTIRQ_PRIO_DECR=2
/etc/rtapp/rtapp.conf
MAX_PRIORITY="70"


Max possible priority is set system-wide at 98. Higher priorit will increase the CPU load.

HOW TO INSTALL NVIDIA PROPRIETARY DRIVERS
-> At the moment nvidia drivers can be installed only with default LINUX RT kernel (option 1 in kernel update). If in doubt please contact support.
A) Headless version:
yay -Sy nvidia-dkms nvidia-utils --noconfirm

B) LXQt version:
yay -Sy nvidia-dkms nvidia-settings nvidia-utils opencl-nvidia --noconfirm
--> This is necessary for enabling CUDA acceleration in HQPlayer, if you have a nvidia card. You must add multicore and cuda options to /home/audiolinux/.hqplayer/hqplayerd.xml in the engine section. For example:
multicore="auto" cuda="1"

You could eventually add the section "Device" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/xorg.conf

Section "Device"
        Identifier "Nvidia Card"
        Driver "nvidia"
        VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
        Option "NoLogo" "true"
EndSection


Optionally you could blacklist the open source driver "nouveau" creating the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf with the following content:
blacklist nouveau

Understanding audiolinux 1 INSTALLATION

--> For audiolinux lxqt change

audiolinux_mini_400.img.gz to  audiolinux_600.img.gz    --> audiolinux  will boot only in UEFI mode

--> You cannot install audiolinux on a single partition but only to the full hard disk (audiolinux image has 2 partitions, UEFI fat32 and linux ext4)

To install audiolinux on external USB stick (32 GB) or internal Hard disk, if you already have linux installed in internal drive or  in external media (liveCD or liveUSB, for Ubuntu you can install this way and omit stage 2):
1) Boot from your linux installation and download the image
-> The password for sudo and root in audiolinux is audiolinux0
2) Verify that the image file is not corrupted with
sha256sum
audiolinux_mini_400.img.gz
3) Find the hard disk address by typing
sudo fdisk -l
4) If, for example, the HD is /dev/sda, copy the image with
gunzip -c
audiolinux_mini_400.img.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/sda bs=1M status=progress
(this will delete the hd, it is not necessary to format it previously)
5) Extend the ext4 partition until covering the remaining part of the hard disk (this will fix also GPT size errors. note that you will need more than the default size for Roon database)
--> If you will use ramroot later, leave some unallocated space on the hdd for an extra partition or add another drive, otherwise, if you copy the music files into audiolinux partition, the size will become too big for booting to ram.

6) Power off the PC, unplug previous external linux installation and boot from the new HD/USB stick.

HOW TO RESIZE AUDIOLINUX PARTITION
a) If you have Audiolinux LXQt: make a second installation on a USB stick, boot from the new installation and extend the ext4 partition on the old installation with gparted (easy, because the application has a GUI)
b) If you don't have Audiolinux LXQt: enable ramroot, reboot, select the option resize in system menu.
If you want to switch back to normal mode: reboot answering N to ramroot boot prompt at the beginning of boot, disable ramroot, reboot


--> If you have problems booting, consult our Booting Checklist

If you install from MAC, see the guide here
If you install from Windows, you can use
Rufus version 2.18 with option "dd"
--> In this case you will miss step 6) of installation guide above. For a possible solution see
this guide case 1)  but installation with these applications is not recommended.

This is the official how-to, You can use also other methods that allow the cloning of an image with multiple partitions.
Understanding audiolinux 2 HOW TO MOUNT INTERNAL OR REMOTE HARD DISK

THIS CAN BE DONE AUTOMATICALLY WITH THE OPTION IN SYSTEM MENU

*  In lxqt version you can enable auto-mount enabling Mount in pcmanfm-qt file explorer --> Edit --> Preferences --> Volume

To auto-mount the hard disk at boot you need to edit the file /etc/fstab.
You can use a root terminal (type su and after give root password audiolinux0) with
nano /etc/fstab
You can also use pcmanfm-qt file explorer root (red icon on the bottom bar) and edit the file from there.
I suggest to mount in a subfolder of /media where there are some folders with the right permissions already set.
Don't mount outside of /media subfolders if you are using ramroot!
It is better to test the mount line before adding it to /etc/fstab. For example:
mount -t ntfs-3g UUID=
myuuid /media/samba -o uid=1000,gid=100,forceuid,forcegid
etc.
Please be careful. If /etc/fstab has a wrong line, the sytem could not boot.

To find LABEL or uuid type
blkid
in a terminal
Substitute mylabel, myuuid, servername, password etc. with your values.

Example for linux internal hard disk
LABEL=mylabel /media/linux1 ext4 nofail,noatime,rw 0 2
or
UUID=myuuid /media/linux1 ext4 nofail,noatime,rw 0 2

Understanding audiolinux 3 HOW TO CONFIGURE REALTIME PRIORITY

In Audiolinux realtime priority is assigned by 2 services: rtirq for irq priority and rtapp for application priority.

1) RTIRQ configuration

The default configuration file is /etc/rtirq.conf
The important section is this one
RTIRQ_NAME_LIST="xhci"
In the default configuration it will give the defined priority to xhci usb devices.
To check the realtime priorities you can use rtstatus...

Audiolinux for experts 1 NETWORK BRIDGE

THIS CAN BE DONE AUTOMATICALLY WITH THE OPTION IN SYSTEM MENU

If you need a Network Bridge it is advisable to use systemd network instead of NetworkManager, because "NetworkManager can create bridges, but currently will not auto-connect to them or slave/attached interfaces" cfr.: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Network_bridge

Now let's go to /etc/systemd/network/
cd /etc/systemd/network/
We remove the previous files, if any
rm /etc/systemd/network/*

You can check the names of network interfaces with:
ip addr show
In the examples that will follow we have 2 network interfaces, enp3s0 and enp4s0. Your names can be different.
--> In my test enp4s0 is connected to the router (and internet) and enp3s0 is connected directly from pc (with a normal ethernet cable) to a BeagleBone Black naa running archlinuxarm

...For the full guide click here 
Audiolinux for experts 2 WHAT TO DO IF YOUR ROON DATABASE SIZE IS TOO BIG FOR RAM MODE OR FOR DRIVE SIZE

THIS CAN BE DONE AUTOMATICALLY WITH THE OPTION IN SYSYEM MENU

Roon Database can be huge.
This how-to can be applied in these cases:
1) Drive space is insufficient because you did not resize the ext4 partition after installation.
2) Ram size is not enough for booting in ram mode

...For the full guide click here
You can use Audiolinux for audio in the following combinations:

1) HQPlayer Desktop (lxqt version)
2) Roon
3) Roon wth HQPlayer Desktop
4) Roon with HQPlayer embedded
5) Jriver with HQPlayer embedded (lxqt version)
6)
HQPlayer embedded controlled by HQPDcontrol or BubbleUPnP or Mconnect on smartphone/tablet
7) M
PD controlled by Cantata  (linux) or many other control points on smartphone/tablet
8) Logitech Media Server (LMS)
and Squeezelite.  PCM and DSD upsampling possible with many different filters (same as in Daphile). Many control points on smartphone/tablet available
9) Jriver Media Center (lxqt version)
10) Spotify with the audio sevice spotifyd, controlled by
official Spotify on smartphone/tablet/PC

Roon with HQPlayer

Tidal music streaming is already integrated in Roon, BubbleUPnP, LMS and Mconnect. Qobuz is available on
BubbleUPnP, LMS and Mconnect. Spotify direct streaming possible if spotifyd service enabled.

In lxqt version, with NoMachine remote Desktop, you can start without graphical Desktop and access AudioLinux from smartphone or PC in a virtual Desktop identical to the default one. After your configuration is finished, you can switch back to command line mode with a simple logout.
