boot/config.txt

  • Hi guys,


    I'm trying to install a hifiberry sound card to my raspberry pi 3. To do so, I must edit the config.txt file that can be found in the boot/ folder.


    However, I cannot find this folder nor file on my SD card.


    I read somewhere I can make the *txt file myself. However, do I also have to create the boot folder myself? And if so, should this folder be placed in the root of the SD card, or maybe somewhere else?


    Your help is much appreciated, thanks.

  • Just insert the sdcard into a windows (or mac/linux) machine and you should see config.txt in the root directory that shows.
    (assuming you installed LibreELEC directly, without using NOOBS).

    Well, my raspberry pi came with a SD card that already contained some images. During the installation procedure, I chose to install LibreElec. The root of my SD card looks like: see attachment

    Yes, that is NOOBS. If you press shift when booting, you can stop in NOOBS configuration. That includes a menu option to edit config.txt.


    But if you only ever want to use LibreELEC then a fresh install of LibreELEC may be advisable - it saves some sdcard space and simplifies things like editing config.txt.


  • LibreELEC Settings - LibreELEC see section 1.4 Backup. I also suggest to read the other articles on the Wiki.


    Okay guys, I followed your advice and used the LIBREELEC USB-SD Creator App to create a bootable SD card with libreElec on it. I also made a back-up of Kodi and it was easy to put back this back-up. Next, I was able to find and edit the config file. And the hifiberry seems to work fine now. Thanks for your help!

  • Is this the only way? I quess I will lose all of my Kodi apps currently installed.


    Use the backup add-on and make sure you select save add-on data. After you do the fresh install, RESTORE the backup you just made.
