The instructions for this went missing when VB forum went down. I have just found them again.

1. Remove the VB LMS install

rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver logitechmediaserver-CPAN logitechmediaserver-vendor logitechmediaserver-firmware-ip3k
2. Save your Prefs

cp -a /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs/server.prefs.rpmsave /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs/server.prefs
3. Install the Nightly (16 Jan 2018 here)

yum install http://downloads-origin.slimdevices.com/nightly/7.9/sc/032da12/logitechmediaserver-7.9.1-0.1.1516049992.noarch.rpm
4. Symlink the perl libraries (this is the crucial bit that went west)

ln -s /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/Slim /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/Slim
5. Start the Server

systemctl start squeezeboxserver

Notes
Substitute the file in 3. with the latest Nightly as required
You cannot now update LMS via the VB interface

To install further Nightly updates

1. Stop the Server

systemctl stop squeezeboxserver
2. Install the latest Nightly (substitute the file name as appropriate)

yum install http://downloads-origin.slimdevices.com/nightly/7.9/sc/032da12/logitechmediaserver-7.9.1-0.1.1516049992.noarch.rpm
3. Restart the Server

systemctl start squeezeboxserver
