    Yes LMS server installation kinda violates the pCP premise.....in that you can just yank the power cord whenever you want. After initial installation, the Cache and Prefs are store on the boot drive of the system. This puts the system at most risk. Moving the cache to a USB stick is a better configuration. If that drive becomes corrupted for some reason, the system will still at least boot.

    We could reduce the risk, by leaving the Cache on a ramdisk, and then backup the preferences and plugins on demand. But I don't think there is a way to keep LMS from filling up the memory with the cache.

    That sounds like a really bad idea.
    Sometime ago i tried a comparsion between RAMDISK and ssd / hd for the cache. So i do know something about it.
    A rpi has 512 or 1024 mb RAM overall and picore also resides in that small portion.
    We all (most if us) know something about that story

    lol. I was thinking for the guys only using LMS for internet based streaming. No real need to cache anything.......but we would have to keep the cache real small, or disable it altogether.
