LMS (Logitech Media Server)


I am trying to get LMS working on Ubuntu server build 4.9_V170604.
Clear eMMC Ubuntu install.
LMS from: http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/index.php?ver=7.9
perl v5.22.1-9
After installing all needed dependencies and libraries i have LMS ruining but not actually. I can start/stop/restart manually. Auto-start is working on boot but the service is restarts every 5 sec continually. Log says "Logitech Media Server died. Restarting."
I think there is a perl problem but i am new to linux and can’t be sure.
Someone experienced enough to test installing LMS?

With ubuntu mate build, situation is the same.


Arbian the same. I startr thinking that there is LMS problem with some ARM64 libraries. Most probably need to be compiled from the scratch, Another problem is that there is no errors installing them.

Here is more monitoring the service start:
The following modules failed to load: DBI EV XML::Parser::Expat HTML::Parser JSON::XS Digest::SHA1 YAML::XS Sub::Name


The problem is from missing perl arm64 libraries. They need to be compiled manually from source.


Working version is available from here

sudo dpkg -i

That’s it! Simple now :slight_smile:

I have installed on @balbes150 Armbian.

Will test later :slight_smile:


Working nice with Armbian. I can say fast enough. Tested!

I will try now with ArchLinux instead of Armbian.
