    Mint Rosa: 7.7.5 Won't run

    Hi All,

    After 8 years of more or less trouble free serving, I had to upgrade and rebuild mint running on an old eebox.

    Installed rosa 32 bit, no problems.
    Installed lms 7.7.5, seemed fine

    However, gui @ eebox.local:9000 is 404, so I think LMS is not running.
    CMD service logitechmediaserver start returns:

    ...unable to open the pidfile '/var/run/logitechmediaserver.pid' for writing (permission denied)

    What are my next moves? I'm very unskilled at backend stuff, but I'm willing to learn.

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Hi,
    ...unable to open the pidfile '/var/run/logitechmediaserver.pid' for writing (permission denied)
    are you running that as root ?

    Most likely your system is running a Perl is too recent for 7.7.5. Try 7.9 instead.

    I've tried multiple ways to open and close it with the same effect.

    Ok will give that a shot in due course. Supplementary question, then: why isn't the latest LMS the default download from MSB site?

    Thanks a lot for the answer - will update any progress.

    The downloads listed on mysb.com are the latest officially released
    versions. As LMS/SB development officially stopped three or four years
    ago, those never got updated.
