    Bad (?) LMS Install on debian - Solved

    Solved I'm trying to get LMS going on a kirkwood armel processor running on debian buster. I have an installation running on jessie thanks to a forum member (505, I think) that compiled the perl 5.20 modules for armel. Since jessie is getting old, it would be nice to have LMS on a new version. The working install used the -all.deb 7.9 nightly package. For the buster version, I tried to get ahead by using the -ARM.deb package assuming it was the all with everything but ARM removed. The install ran OK, but the /usr/share/squeezeboxserver directory contains only the CPAN directory. The working on jessie has many more directories. Attempting to start over, I tried to uninstall LMS using dpkg and it fails because the package name contains ~, an invalid character. I could not find any way to get around this. Further check says packages are squeezeboxserver and squeezecenter. Remove says they are not installed.

    How can I uninstall LMS with the invalid character?

    For an armel processor, what package should I install? -all?

    I'll post my struggles with compiling the perl modules in another thread.
