    ickStream Shutdown

    I still don't understand why this would bring down LMS. Slow down
    loading of the plugins page maybe. But bring it down? I'll have to
    investigate that.

    Went away on holiday for a week and came back to discover that I had the same problem as others here - ickStream shutdown killed my LMS dead. No access to settings so had to manually remove the plugin. A quick fix but discovering that it was ickStream took an age.

    I agree. Same here. Uninstall the ick-stream plugin and all will work fine.

    But how? LMS is not starting in my case, now trying with Putty but not everyone is a Unix programmer. A message upfront from the Ickstream team would have been polite indeed. I'm on a Vortexbox and have been able to logon via Putty. But don't know how to set the 'fail safe' mode in LMS so that the Ickstream plugin can be removed after a reboot via the GUI.

    We have announced it for two months before the shutdown. In this very thread.
    Also, you don't need to be a programmer, all you need to do is delete the plugin folder from the Plugins folder.

    I agree it's unfortunate that the plugin blocks some setups when the service is unavailable, we only learned about that after the shutdown or we would have tried to remove the plugin before that through an update.
    Sorry for the trouble.

    Hi Pippin, thanks for your reply. Could you please indicate which Unix commands I need to use (on Vortexbox)? Again: LMS is not starting at all, so I can't use the GUI!

    I don't know exactly where the folder is on Vortexbox, but if you navigate to the InstalledPlugins/Plugins folder, it would then be "rm -r ./ickStreamPlugin"

    Probably this one I assume > /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache/InstalledPlugins/Plugins/

    Yes, that sounds correct.

    Yes, that should be it.

    If that doesn't work there is also a possibility to start LMS without loading any plugins with failsafe flag (so you can uninstall ickStream through web GUI) as described here:
