I had no luck with that one, but no problems with the device that shows up when you search ebay for "USB Sound Card 7.1 Channel 3D Audio"

Ok, guys. I've managed to install and run mpd on my flash drive. I run it with following audio_output settings in mpd.conf

Code: Select all

audio_output {
        type            "oss"
        name            "My OSS Device"
        device          "/dev/sound/dsp"        # optional
        format          "44100:16:2"    # optional
        mixer_device    "/dev/sound/mixer"      # optional
        mixer_control   "PCM"           # optional
}


it runs without a word, everything looks fine. I start Ario on my PC and push the play button. I see timer running in Ario and AIR led blinking on router. Led on the USB sound card doesn't blink as it should when working. And I can hear no sound.
I run mpc on router - and it gives me:

Code: Select all

root@OpenWrt:/mnt/usb/.mpd# mpc
volume: n/a   repeat: off   random: off   single: off   consume: off


I try mpc volume +10 and it gives me:

Code: Select all

root@OpenWrt:/mnt/usb/.mpd# mpc volume +10
error: ACK [52@0] {volume} problems setting volume


I'm using Asus WL-520GU (Backfire OpenWRT 10.03 brcm2.4), A4Tech USB Hub and plugged in it USB sound card (right this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-USB-2-0-to- ... 4ab86672b4).

I've tried to comment following lines in mpd.conf

Code: Select all

#        mixer_device    "/dev/sound/mixer"      # optional
#       mixer_control   "PCM"           # optional


but no luck

Is MPD is running in the background?

Code: Select all

ps -aux
should give a list of all processes.

Well, after several attempts to run mpc via OSS and ALSA in various freaking ways I've reinstalled OpenWRT from MightyOhm precompiled image. Surprisingly it installed successfully, so gerben was right - some error during download or I don't know..
And it works! Thanks to MightyOhm for great tutorial!

As conclusion - either Backfire 10.03, nor Backfire 10.03.1 (a bit slower than 10.03) won't work with described setup. At least that didn't work for me.
