Optional SqueezeLite 1.3 released for Dianemo X86 14.04LTS
« Reply #465 on: June 01, 2015, 12:27:26 pm »
We've built an alternate Squeezelite 1.3 package to compliment the Squeezelite 1.8 package we released last week.

Why have we done this? One of our customer systems has been experiencing very high processor loads for instances of Squeezelite. We don't have a full understanding of what causes this, and we only have a single instance currently too. However it seems that a build of Squeezelite 1.3 for 14.04LTS fixes the high CPU loads and therefore we're posting this here so that if you do hit the issue and want to fix it yourself you can install 1.3 instead;

Only do the following if you experience the high CPU load issue - Open a terminal and type to remove Squeezelite 1.8;

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -r squeezelite <return>
and to install Squeezelite 1.3 type;

Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i squeezelite-1.3 <return>
If you do experience this issue please let us know even if you apply the fix above yourself. We're also happy to apply the fix for you too (at no cost) if you would prefer that. PM me here on the forum if you need to report this issue on your system or to arrange for us to install the fix.

Best

Update Available - Generic IP Device Template in Dianemo X86 14.04LTS
« Reply #466 on: June 01, 2015, 01:13:00 pm »
On Friday we pushed an update out that contained a new device template call "Generic IP Device". What is the purpose of this device?

The "Generic IP Device", or template #2068 has been released to allow for any IP device to be added to dhcpd.conf (be careful, as it's just under "Generic IP Camera", which is for Motion Wrapper, so don't choose that when adding a Generic IP Device)

Any IP device added via the #2068 template gets an entry in dhcpd.conf and will mean that it will not change addresses over it's life-time in your system. Device Template #2068 should be added as a top level device ie at the same level inthe Device Tree as the Core.

An example of its use would be when adding Zoneminder cameras - add a Device template #2068 for each camera, adding the cameras IP/Mac address and click 'Save'. Now the cameras IP address will be fixed in dhcpd.conf.
