So after a bit of searching about PeppyMeter freezing on my Dell Wyse 3040 x86. I discovered a thread on this thread on January 25, 2023 @peppy.player posted a solution to \var\log\mpd.log being overrun with several strange characters and filling the log. It turns out that this is what was frreezing my PeppyMeter. So the fix is to edit the /etc/asound.conf file and set meter_show to 0.
My question is… HOW do you make the changes to asound.conf persist after a reboot? Any help @Wheaten would be appreciated. I know it’s not an official plugin on x86.
