    Logitech Media Server died. Restarting.

    Hi

    I am trying to run Logitech Media Server on an Orange Pi Zero+ H5 - running Armbian. The idea is to have a small compact squeezeserver + squeezebox to bring with traveling (I am spending much time at hotels).


    I installed using dpkg, and used the latest build:
    logitechmediaserver_7.9.1~1523344273_all.deb

    ....I tried an older 7.8 build as well with same result.

    The service is constantly dying and respawing, I get this in /var/log/squeezebox/server.log:

    2018-04-12 06:24:35 Logitech Media Server died. Restarting.
    2018-04-12 06:24:40 Logitech Media Server died. Restarting.
    2018-04-12 06:24:45 Logitech Media Server died. Restarting.
    2018-04-12 06:24:50 Logitech Media Server died. Restarting.
    2018-04-12 06:24:55 Logitech Media Server died. Restarting.
    2018-04-12 06:25:00 Logitech Media Server died. Restarting
    .
    .



    The box is running Perl 5.22.1 (This is perl 5, version 22, subversion 1 (v5.22.1) built for aarch64-linux-gnu-thread-multi)

    I can find no other log info, except that it is constantly restarting......

    Does anyone have a clue?

    We don't have binaries for this platform. Is Armbian up to date? The
    Armbian I installed on my Rock64 came with a more recent Perl. We do
    have binaries for AARCH64 for Perl 5.24 and 5.26.

    Or you could compile the required modules yourself. It's usually pretty
    straight forward:

    Thank you for pointing me to sources.


    I think it is actually up to date. I just installed about a week ago from freshly downloaded image, and did an apt-get update;apt-get upgrade

    Compiling directly on the device worked, and didn't even take too long. These small devices are getting fast

    still this prblem

    i installed a freshly Linux Mint tara/mate server.
    Installed the most recent nightly ( and replaced it with logitechmediaserver_7.9.2~1541869104_all.deb)
    There are several problems: initially the server did not finished its scanning og a >80000 songs directory.
    it stopped somewhere halfway and hang. I tried to disabled as many plugins i could find to no avail.
    Next i tried to go back to a 7.7 version by logitechmediaserver_7.9.2~1541869104_all.deb and instaled the recent 7.7 version. It would not start.
    So i updated that one (7.7) to the 7.9.2...104. But now i only see lms died restarting errors and nothing i(empty) in the scanner log.
