The flac package in extra was updated to version 1.4.0-1 on 16 September, 2022.

Squeezelite now throws the following error on startup:

squeezelite: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I compiled and installed squeezelite-git, which did not throw this error. Thus, I'd imagine you just need to recompile the non -git package.

This seems to be an upstream problem and has been reported upstream.

To get squeezlite to work as a systemd service on a system running pipewire in pulseaudio emulation mode, I had to tweak the service to run as a "--user" service rather than a system service.

Fails to build

"make: *** [Makefile:162: ffmpeg.o] Error 1 ==> ERROR: A failure occurred in build(). Aborting... -> error making: squeezelite"

I recommend to add -DGPIO to the compile options as it enables the -S option for adding a power script (even on non RPi build)

Sure; moreover, must be changed to, or MAC will be declared as 00:00:00:00:00:00 instead of real one while booting. Requiered= part not needed. For me, at least.

I think that the systemd service should have


Description=Squeezelite Player

Otherwise after a reboot the service could fail if sound system is not up yet

@mikebutash Please try the new PKGBUILD I wrote for the git version and let me know if it works on your installation.

I've not gotten this to work in like 3 years of testing, short of running this as root only, so something seriously broken with the permissions or access model. Otherwise useless in standard install format though. I can't figure out why this won't work adding to arch audio group, so not sure what else this requires to work properly, but as-is is garbage.
