Thanks i'll take a look. I'am currently using the subsonic command line options to set folder locations https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/blob/testing/dietpi/dietpi-software#L2160-L2164
HI, thanks for the details.
Subsonic is already coded into dietpi-software, but is currently disabled as I havnt had the time to test it yet. I'll try and take another pass at it today.
If you would like to test it, you can enable the installation option in /DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-software by:
^^ is using Subsonic v5.2.1
Cool, thanks Dan.
I did wonder as I'd see you post it in the forum and then it disappeared!

The basic installation of Subsonic works as expected but there's a bit of tidying to do I think.
We need to use Oracle Java rather than OpenJDK/IcedTea (which is painfully slow) + I think it reduces the number of packages that need downloading.
The script needs to install ffmpeg and lame too, and subsonic's transcoder needs redirecting to then using:
ln -fs /usr/bin/ffmpeg /var/subsonic/transcode
I'll do another test build tonight to remind myself what packages I installed in what order for my first working system as it seems to perform much better than this install (which is dropping out audio regularly).
I've just spun up a new image and gone through the whole process (which I've put here for completeness, obviously not all of it is relevant to the final script)
booted and left to resize disks etc
ssh'd in and allowed update patches to run + reboot
select to install alsa (not sure if this is necessary?)
go start installation
The subsonic part.
apt-get install lame ffmpeg oracle-java7-jdk
at this point (once they'd installed) I did 'poweroff' and dropped the subsonic .deb in /mnt using my laptop and then reloaded the pi – equivilent to wget'ing the deb from sourceforge
then redirect subsonic's transcoder using:
wait a while for subsonic to establish itself and away you go!
Excellent job thechildofroth
Again, great job and thanks for helping to make DietPi better and better! I've given you full credit in the changelog https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi/blob/testing/CHANGELOG.txt#L5 and Online documentation http://fuzon.co.uk/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5&start=30#p213
We should be releasing v85 today (its a biggy) and this will enable the SubSonic installation option.
I best crack on with adding the forum page for SubSonic (again) ;) lol
