    Interesting. So the deb package installer will leave the CPAN/5.28/arch/armel directory in place while replacing (or not) the other arch directories. Or, do these not change once compiled for a specific perl version? This perl version stuff is a pain. There are 11 or so different versions supported in the package.

    Again, thanks for your help on this. Scanned 1700 tracks in 50 seconds on a SSD. It's running great on the Dell Kace M300 with an internal SSD. $15 on ebay.

    Yes. To be precise, the CPAN/arch/5.28/arm-linux-gnueabi-thread-multi-64int directory. This particular sub-tree simply isn't part of the Debian package. That would be why you were left with some "stranded" stuff when you were dpkg -r'ing earlier.

    Be aware that the contents of Bin/arm-linux are also needed on armel platform, and are supplied as part of the Debian package, so no problem there. These are not perl version specific, which makes the thing rather more manageable.

    It's running great on the Dell Kace M300. $15 on ebay.
    In the US... neither vendor I found publicly advertises global shipping availability. And then one may need to procure a suitable 240V power supply. Enclosure looks smart. My guess is that a modern Raspberry Pi plus audio board plus "upmarket" enclosure is probably not much different in price, although wouldn't have an SSD inside.

    Has any one managed to build a more modern kernel than that which will have shipped with it ?

    Yes, we have a 5.2.9 kernel using 1.8 GB of memory and running buster. So far, we can only run the old stock u-boot, but it does work. You can read the whole story on this thread in the doozan forum:

    Code:
    Linux version 5.2.9-kirkwood-tld-2 (root@tldDebian) (gcc version 6.3.0 20170516 (Debian 6.3.0-18+deb9u1)) #1 PREEMPT Wed Aug 28 03:55:21 PDT 2019

    You are not the only person disappointed that it is only available at a reasonable price in the US. One of the few advantages being here these days. But, since you're in the UK...

    This box has a fairly narrow use case; the Pi is really a better choice with more features, more support, especially with the Pi3 and Pi4. But, if your situation matches this device, it's a really good deal. Fortunately, mine does.

    Again thanks for the help on this.
