    I have the exact same isues trying to put lms 7.9.2 on my Readynas Ultra 2.
    Are the backup for security or is a restore mandatory after upgrade of Radiator ?
    Do you have a link to the thread on Readynas forum ?

    Hi everyone.

    I did try upgrading LMS server from 7.6.3 to 7.9.3 on my prehistoric Netgear ReadyNas Ultra 2 and it didn't work. LMS didn't start. 7.9.4 beta and 8.0.0 didn't start after the installation either.
    I rolled back to 7.7 and it worked fine for me. Any thoughts? Is the older Netgear stuff no longer supported?

    Hmm... I wouldn't know what is breaking it. Just recently had feedback
    by a user of a Sparc(!) based ReadyNAS who was running LMS8. That's even
    older than yours. Is there anything in the server.log?

    TBH. I'm rather going to remove the ReadyNAS builds than fix them. It
    just doesn't make sense to support devices from a decade ago, but
    nothing more recent... Raspberry Pi is the way to go, if you want to
    continue to use your NAS as just a NAS, and leave the LMS duty to
    something more up-to-date and working.

    Hi Michael.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I see your point. But tbh I don't really understand why should I change the hardware (ie Netgear NAS) that is fully working and fits all my needs pretty well.
    It does look more like consumerism. ) If there's no way to upgrade to 7.9 or higher that's ok for me. I'll stick to 7.7. Anyway thanks for your input!

    No need to stop using the NAS just add a Pi as LMS server.

    Hi again.

    Just tried to reinstall the LMS 8.0.0 and it seemed like it was working until I rebooted the NAS. So I uninstalled LMS 7.7, installed 8.0.0 and successfully connected to LMS web interface but all the images were broken.
    Then I rebooted the Netgear NAS and got no connection to web interface anymore.

    LMS 7.9.2 does not start onReadynas ultra pro 4

    Ok, here's what I've found. The change which I could imagine could
    potentially cause this crash is an update to the Audio::Scan library
    from 6 years ago... You could try to use the version from 7.7. But that
    would involve quite some tinkering... Would you be able and willing to
    replace a bunch of files as the root user on your NAS? (and you'd have
    to do this after every update!)

    I do understand that you don't want to throw away an otherwise perfectly
    working device. But that's not the point of using a Raspberry Pi to run
    LMS. It's actually the exact setup I have in my office: I gave up
    running LMS on my ReadyNAS Duo v2. But that same old NAS is still
    serving the music files, handling TimeMachine etc. Running LMS on the Pi
    has the advantage that you'll be running it on a device which is
    actively supported (because I use it ;-)), and might actually improve
    performance overall as a side effect, allowing you to take advantage of
    plugins and features which might not have run on the NAS with its
    limited resources.

    Hi Michael.

    I do have a will but I am not sure if I have the knowledge. I'll try to dig into it on the netgear forums.

    On the other hand I tried to install several other versions: 7.9.0, 7.9.1 and 7.9.2.
    7.9.2 did not work for me just like 7.9.3, 7.9.4 and 8.0.0
    7.9.0 and 7.9.1 are working fine. The only issue that I've noticed was a bug with the plugins.
    I can't see the list of 3d party plugins and it looks like LMS couldn't connect to repository.

    I have disabled my network filter but it didn't help. Still no connection to repository.
    I found this thread: https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...-IO-Socket-SSL
    but I don't know how to implement it in my case.. (

    Thanks for the advice, Mike. I think I'll give it a go.

    I am sorry for a bit of off topic here, but probably you could help me with this, Michael.
    After installing 7.7.7 I found a new feature - the screensaver (Digital VU or Analog VU) works on both screens now on Transporter. Wow!
    But there's a small "Now playing" text that is really annoying. Please see picture:

    Do you have any idea how to remove this text? Please advise.

    Thank you!

    You just gave the perfect reason why to move away from this unit to run LMS:

    The box lacks IO::Socket::SSL, and it's nothing you can easily update on
    that system. SSL is getting ever more important. I'd really strongly
    suggest you go the Pi route. Save yourself the hassle of trying to
    update the NAS.

    Ahm... no idea... I think I've never used that screensaver. But from a
    quick glance at the code this is hard-coded.

    update the NAS.
    It's too late, Mike.. )))
    I've installed SSH addon to Netgear and now Upgrading a legacy ReadyNAS from RAIDiator 4.2.x to 6.2.x.
    Hopefully this will fix "IO::Socket::SSL" problem. If not - here's the solution:

    Code:
    I ssh'd to my box and tried:
    
    $ apt-get update
    $ apt-get install libio-socket-ssl-perl
    
    But apt-get could not connect to the proper repositories to grab the required files.
    
    I checked /etc/apt/sources.list and found this:
    
    $ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    http://www.readynas.com/packages 4.2.31/
    #deb http://archive.debian.org/debian etch 
    
    After removing the leading '#' in the 2nd line (comment) I retried the above two commands, this time IO::Socket::SSL installed OK. Spotty is now running on my NAS :-)
    Thanks for your help and all you're doing to keep LMS alive!


    /// UPD.

    The "IO::Socket::SSL" problem is fixed but "Bad repository http://repos.squeezecommunity.org/extensions.xml - Connect timed out:" problem is still present. ((
