Shutdown scripts for RuneAudio


The default SSH user name is root, password rune

  • Key in :
  • cd /etc
  • nano irswitch.sh
  • Copy and paste the following text into the editor window
    #!/bin/bash
    # this is the GPIO pin receiving the shut-down signal
    GPIOpin1=14
    echo "$GPIOpin1" > /sys/class/gpio/export
    echo "in" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/direction
    while true; do
      sleep 1
      power=$(cat /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/value)
      if [ $power != 0 ]; then
        mpc stop
        /srv/http/command/rune_shutdown
        echo "out" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/direction
        echo "1" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin1/value
        sleep 3
        poweroff
      fi
    done
  • Press ctrl+x to exit, y to confirm, enter to save the file
  • Key in
    chmod +x irswitch.sh
  • RuneAudio is based on Arch Linux, in order to run the above script at boot it has to be registered as a startup service :
  • Key in
    cd /usr/lib/systemd/system
    nano irswitch.service
  • Copy and paste the following text into the editor window
    [Unit]
    Description=RemotePi Service
    After=systemd-modules-load.service
    [Service]
    Type=simple
    ExecStart=/etc/irswitch.sh
    [Install]
    WantedBy=multi-user.target

  • Press ctrl+x to exit, y to confirm, enter to save the file
  • Key in
    systemctl enable irswitch.service

The following additional script enables the RemotePi Board to cut off the power, after RuneAudio has been shut down from the on-screen menu.

  • Key in
  • sudo nano /etc/shutdown.sh
  • Copy and paste the following contents
  • #!/bin/bash
    GPIOpin=15
    echo "$GPIOpin" > /sys/class/gpio/export
    # execute shutdown sequence on pin
    echo "out" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/direction
    echo "1" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value
    sleep 0.125
    echo "0" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value
    sleep 0.2
    echo "1" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value
    sleep 0.4
    echo "0" > /sys/class/gpio/gpio$GPIOpin/value

  • Press ctrl+x to exit, y to confirm, enter to save the file
  • Mark ir as executable by keying in
    chmod +x /etc/shutdown.sh
  • Edit the file rune_SY_wrk located in /var/www/command/ with
    nano /var/www/command/rune_SY_wrk
  • Find at or near line 600 the text sysCmdAsync(‘poweroff'); and change it to sysCmdAsync(‘/etc/shutdown.sh’);

  • Reboot one time
  • After the reboot you can use the RemotePi Board to power cycle RuneAudio.

    (thanks to Guy B. from the UK for the RuneAudio shutdown by script)
     

The above scripts have been tested and are confirmed to work up to RuneAudio 0.4-beta. Although not yet tested, they most likely will work with newer versions as well.
