Computer Audiophile shows us how to build a Linux music server using a BeagleBone Black.
Warning the following article contains some geeky stuff. What follows is a step by step guide to building a tiny 2.4″ x 0.82″ x 3.54″ Linux music server. It’s not rocket science and the instructions make the process fairly easy, but the article isn’t for everybody. Thanks to CA readers K-man and Richard Dale for additional information and tweaks for setting up the BeagleBone Black so it runs great. Please note there are many ways to setup and configure the BBB. This is just one way using either Mac OS X or Windows. Readers are encouraged to leave comments with additional tips, tricks, and tweaks. I will update this article accordingly.
