KDCA down for another day
« on: November 18, 2014, 07:24:03 AM »
My KDCA feed will be down for another day. Pepco's last outage resulted an a flash drive on the raspberry that won't boot. I'll be rebuilding.

I think I have it back up. A new flash card for RaspPi B, write image using physdiskwrite. (GUI didn't work -- used command line OK.) Then follow instructions here:

My audio input is a behringer UCA-222 (~US$30), which shows up as hw:1,0 for the darkice config file.

I should really duplicate that flash card and tape it to the bottom of the RaspPi case so that I have a spare. My UPS held out for two hours, but the RaspPi crashed and ate the flash card because I don't have it set up for a graceful shutdown. (NUT for RP?)
