    Hi Ronnie;

    I had tried that and it didn't help. Just tried it again and all extension versions matched, and no go again. I am in the process of burning my pcp7 backup to SD and I might give the update a go again...or listen to music for a while first

      right oh

      when you have it up and running, run the update checks from the main page and also do the lib check, then try the version update again

        Updating from 7 to 8 should not even touch LMS (or perl) Is there anything in the LMS server log file?

          Since I cannot connect to LMS, I'll have to figure out where the log file is . I'll look....

            Ok, I didn't know where to look for the log file in the LMS data, so I just burned a SD of the backup that I made of 7 before the failed update. I tested the new image, did as ronnie said, then did the update again and all is fine. The only thing different is in the first (failed) update there were some file checks during download that were checked, failed, and repeated. I did not see this with the second successful update.

            The only other difference is I had to use the mirror repo for the second update, as the main was not available

            Thanks for the responses as always, and thanks paul- and your whole team for a wonderful, ever evolving system!

              There is a log view button on the pCP LMS interface page.

                  This post is for completeness. I restored 7 with a backup, and the update to 8 went fine. I put the SD that had failed back in, and here are the logs:

                  The cache.db file was 0 bytes, so I must have mangled it somehow. I deleted it, and restarted pcp, but it didn't help.

                  Again, for information only, I'll just go back to the SD that I didn't botch!

                    The log says "database or disk is full". Have you check your filesystem's state?

                      Ah Ha! Give Michael the prize!

                      my SD has 3 partitions, with my LMS data being on the third. I have two mounts - LMS data and my usb hard drive. I must have made my full sd backup in 7 to the SD. I then copied to my PC to be able to burn another one. So The backup image (used to rebuild) did not contain the backup image file, but the SD did. That must have crashed it.

                      But I can't confirm it because my PC does not recognize the partitions other than boot, and via samba, there are no file size details. I am not savy on how to work around that.

                      Which brings up another point for paul- , We had discussed this before, but there is no way to delete the backups via samba due to permissions. I assume I can connect the USB drive to the PC and delete it then, but I haven't tried. It would be nice to be able to do regular backups, and be able to delete the old. Just a wish list item.

                        Jim, maybe WinSCP will let you delete the backup (it's how I copy the back up file)

                            Is there a guide to the many options in the Squeezelite ALSA settings/mixer page? I've looked around for generic Linux descriptions but none seem to contain the many different ones like "Auto Mute Time" (Left & Right).

                            The symptom is that I'm finding that my RPi4 with Dac2Pro XLR exhibits strange static type clicks whenever I change volume or do any transport operations e.g. play or pause.
                            Play results in a 'crunchy' click (almost like a needle drop sound) with Pause exhibiting a shorter single click. The clicks are subtle. Playback otherwise seems to be fine with no other background noises.
                            Volume changes, using the slider, sound like an old grubby pot or dirty wipers, with subtle static clicks occurring during the change.
                            This happens with mp3 and flac files of varying bitrates and when using PCP as a BT speaker.​ It's a bit like the old DBX NR system (anyone?) with the signal pumping and gating at track transitions.
                            It affects HifiberryOs too so it's not a PCP-specific issue.
                            My ALSA setting is the default buffer 80, period 4, sample format = blank, use mmap=1, open ALSA twice = blank, though I have no idea what the audible impact is of changing those values.

                              Thanks Paul, One option that would be fine for me (if it's easier to implement) would be the ability to overwrite the previous backup. Currently the backup filenames are date stamped. Perhaps there could be an option to write a generic backup file and be able to overwrite it.

                              From a use case perspective, the personal configuration options are getting extensive (a good thing) for both pcp and LMS, so backup is becoming even more important for both.

                              Just a thought
