Sorry, my image only has the applications that are in the Raspbian wheezy image, mpd is not included.
I had the same problems from Debian with unzip and 7zr, but finally I got it installing the "p7zip-full" package and uncompressing with 7z:
* apt-get install p7zip-full
* 7z e wolfson_3.10_master.zip
7-Zip 9.20 Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov 2010-11-18
p7zip Version 9.20 (locale=es_ES.UTF-8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,2 CPUs)

Everything is Ok
Squeezeplug works pretty well with the Wolfson card, but if you want to use the Volumio web-interface as your client, that works too. A guy over in the Volumio forums, Ebsy, has produced a tutorial on how to install Volumio on the PiBang distro. I wondered if it would work on Raspian, so I tried it, and it does! This is using Ragnar's version of the Wolfson image. The tutorial is at http://typingoutloud.org/raspberry-pi-installing-volumio-pibang/. I'm now happily using the Volumio web-interface with the Wolfson card. It may not have all the background tweaks of the full Volumio distribution, but it seems to work pretty well to me.
Thanks for your efforts on this. Like one of the other posters here my dmesg is just full of stack traces and the card is unrecognizable.
I'm so utterly disappointed in this product. It boggles my mind that I would have to use a custom pre-built OS to use an add-on hardware device. I have spent too much time installing and configuring other aspects of my raspian OS (I use it as a print server, backup storage device, etc) to just blow it away and use a new OS image.
So all I can do is sit and hope one day they can get their act together and get the drivers & libs in the official channels and we don't have to mess around with this kind of b.s. Looks like someone pushed a product to market before it was ready.
So from a "normal" noobs install It´s enough with just changing the kernel according to Ragnars post?
I´m with Wayne here. It´s not working at all. The Wolfson NOOBS install can't be done because of discspace on the SD card ( 8 Gb)....
For som reason Ragnars raspian.wheezy stop booting after half a minute.
and so on.....
Why didn´t they do it right from the beginning, now Ragnar and alike have to fix what they didn´t do.
Disappointed, but thanks to all that is trying to help.
Btw, forgot to say that the download of the image isn't working either.
Ragnar's image worked right away for me, and the card is working fine too. Maybe a problem with your SD card?
I think the intention is that the Wolfson drivers will be included into the standard Raspian distribution in due course. We are the early adopters, so we have to work with what is, I think, an interim solution. As I say, it does what I need it to (play music via the SPDIF ouput), and works better than my previous USB Dac set-up, so I'm not complaining.
Unfortunately like at least one other poster this doesn't work for me. I think it's because I'm already on the latest kernel (3.10.36) and this is a backdated one. I get all sorts of stack traces when viewing logs with dmesg as did another poster. That's also the caveat with this method, you're stuck on his 3.10.25 kernel forever.
Thanks for the suggestion though.
I did a standard Raspbian install (not through NOOBS) then updated everything (not much) and changed the kernel and have had no problems, though I didn't look through any logs (it worked, why question it?)
I've slightly downgraded kernels on other systems before without issues but you might be using something which is built against the newer one which objects to the downgrade. Lets hope they get it integrated into the default kernel soon, then it will be a simple upgrade for everyone.
It might be a problem with the Sd card, but everything else is working. Like the normal NOOBS.
Early adopters and early days yes, but now it´s up to us (read you ) to fix it I think.
Hoping and waiting for an official fix.
>It might be a problem with the Sd card, but everything else is working. Like the normal NOOBS.
I thought you said Ragnar's image stopped booting?
>Early adopters and early days yes, but now it´s up to us (read you ) to fix it I think.
Well, not me. I'm just a beneficiary of Ragnar's expertise :-)
>Hoping and waiting for an official fix.
Well, it's supposed to be coming. There was a post earlier in this thread (21) from Andy Laing (I think of Element14) where he said they are working with Wolfson to get the Wolfson drivers included in the standard Raspian distribution .
"We are currently working with the developers at Wolfson and the RPI Foundation to get the drivers uploaded into the official Raspbian Kernel.
This download image is only ever intended to be a temporary measure, and we will be removing this image as soon as the Wolfson drivers are embedded into the official Raspbian kernel. Once complete, you will only need to do an "apt-get upgrade" to download the kernel drivers for this audio card.We are expecting this work to be completed within the coming weeks and I will update this thread again once this is completed and provide instructions on how to update your standard Raspbian builds to install the new drivers and additional software needed to run the Wolfson audio card".So hopefully that might address some of the issues people are currently having.Colin
I think we all get a lot of stack traces at boot. It's even mentioned in the Soundcard Manual:
"You may notice 'trace errors' during boot up. These are regarded as harmless, and they will not appear on future releases."
Not saying that you don't see real, fatal errors, though.
3.10.36, is that the "stable" 3.10.y or the "next" 3.10.y-next branch?
>I think we all get a lot of stack traces at boot. It's even mentioned in the Soundcard Manual:
I see the stack-traces in 'dmesg', but they don't stop the card working. And if they are going to disappear in future releases I don't see them as a problem.
I'm not positive Ragnar. I'm just getting them via the rpi-update. My uname -a looks like:
Linux raspberrypi 3.10.36+ #662 PREEMPT Fri Apr 4 18:31:16 BST 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux
I deleted my original zip download and the img of the above file. I have downloaded it again, but all the unzip programs I try will not unzip it, ( say no unzip sig).
I have painfully downloaded it again and still no joy with unzipping.
Have you changed the file recently?
Please, please publish the md5 sum for this file! (so I can eliminate download errors)
