    1) Install perl
    2) Install git.
    3) Then clone this repo https://github.com/Logitech/slimserver.git to a persistent drive.

    Likely you will need to build a few crypto modules
    4) install compile tools compiletc.tcz
    5) Use cpan to install needed perl modules.....
    When you first run cpan, it will configure itself, set it up to install to your local user library.
    6) Build modules.....the one I know you need is IO::Socket:SSL, but you may need Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA
    To build/install just type cpan install IO::Socket::SSL etc.
    7) Should be able to run slimserver now.

    8) Make sure you back things up when you are done.

    That is too complex for me Paul. I think I will give up this quest.

    Its beyond my capabilities, Alpine Linux, not for me and I dont understand containers and LMS Docker containers so I will give up my quest but thanks everyone for the help

    Diet Pi - PC version

    Almost no headhead.

    Daphile is very good. I ran it for a few years on an old HP micro server. However the release version gives you no ssh access and I started to have problems that I think might be hardware related and could not diagnose them. So I'm back on Ubuntu desktop, because I can.
    So in summary, Daphile is excellent but install the beta which has ssh enabled.

    Thanks GVH I will try a beta but can you tell me what advantage ssh is

    I have burned a usb key with it. Not got past login yet. What is headhead. It seems quite a large distro to run on a 1.4ghz dual core with 2ghz ram but I will keep trying.

    Apologies. Typo. Its overhead not headhead. My bad

    You can refer to the installation guide here for Volumio (for reference only) - https://forum.volumio.org/volumio-x8...hdd-t5058.html

    In essence- you need to create 2 usb drives.
    1st drive - any bootable usb image will do. I suggest you use the volumio image

    2nd drive - you need to copy the img file into the 2nd usb. Do not burn the image to the usb drive. Just copy the img file to your 2nd usb drive will do. You’ll have to substitute the volumio image in the instruction to dietpi image.


    Procedure in a nutshell involves:

    1 - booting from the bootable drive (Suggest to use imageusb - freeware). This also mean that you have to set the your booting order in the pc bios

    2 - copy the img file from the 2nd usb drive to your computer hdd.

    I use the Native PC for Bios/Csm image (only 147mb). Relatively small footprint

    There is a library of softwares you can install. LMS and Squeezelite are both in the list.
