First off, I have read the wiki topic: Squeezeslave on the core, http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Squeezeslave_on_the_core
and I have searched the forum for these definitive answers. But I would like to completely understand the correct answers before implementing this on my working Core. In other words, I have no problem manually installing and getting it to work using the information from the Wiki and the Forum but I would like to know with my Core's present version: LinuxMCE Alpha2.25 if it has been done or shouldn't be done because it is an Alpha version and not 710, which is stable.
Here are the questions:
- Is Squeezeslave a totally standalone software implementation of Squeezebox, not needing anything else but an additional sound card for each instance?
- Has this ever been tried or successfully acheived on LinuxMCE 810 Alpha2 or just recommended for LinuxMCE 710, stable?
- Using an extra LinuxMCE compatible PCI sound card, is there anything that should be done before or after installation and rebooting the Core to keep the new, second, PCI sound card from interfearing with the first (primary) sound card?
- This may have been answered by the first question. For clarification, the Wiki link for downloading Squeezeslave: http://sourceforge.net/projects/softsqueeze/files/ takes you to a page under Softsqueeze. Is Squeezeslave part of, comes with, or needing Softsqueeze to operate on the Core?
Again, I would not have asked these questions if I would have found the answers in the Wiki or Forum.
Thanks to all for the previous and continued support.
P.S. Chalk this one up to "LinuxMCE For Dummies"
