PowerBlock and Volumio

  • This bit of kit is lovely and works as advertised above with Raspbian and RPi3.

    However I really want to use it for a project using Volumio dist. I was wondering if anyone could help as I have run into some problems.

    I am currently trying to run the 'make' command after doing the clone from git and I get the following output:

    volumio@vintage-radio:~/PowerBlock$ make
    cd src/powerblock && make all
    make[1]: Entering directory
    cd ../lib/jsoncpp/ && mkdir -p build/release
    cd ../lib/jsoncpp/build/release && cmake
    -- JsonCpp Version: 1.0.0
    -- Configuring done
    -- Generating done
    -- Build files have been written to:
    cd ../lib/jsoncpp/build/release && make
    make[2]: Entering directory
    make[2]: *** No targets specified and no makefile
    found. Stop.
    make[2]: Leaving directory
    Makefile:28: recipe for target
    make[1]: ***
    Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory
    Makefile:16: recipe for target 'all' failed
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    The first part runs as advertised but the problems seem to start when it tried to:

    make[2]: *** No targets specified and no makefile
    found. Stop.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    There must be something different between Volume and the stripped-down Raspbian that is used for RetroPie. I must take a look into this to give yo further hints. Maybe someone else has an idea?

  • Just a hint for those who installing powerblock and Volumio...

    Use allways sudo and before do the cmake stuff, you need to install first some c++ stuff:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential

    Thanks for the hint! I have updated the README. The install script ( already had that package. I was not aware of these differences.

    Glad that it is working for your now!
