    I need a very small linux to run LMS on PC

    Is anyone running LMS on a PC with a very small linux operating system.
    I have a 1.0 ghz, 2gb ram on a 2gb flash drive.
    I have tried puppy Linux but cant get LMS to run on it, it installs but wont run.
    What small OS will run LMS.
    Any ideas please.
    Thanks

    I'd consider running from a small SSD as LMS really benefits if the database is on such a drive. Does the machine have a HD drive bay?
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room - Joggler & SB3 -> Onkyo TS606 -> Celestion F20s
    Office - Pi3+Sreen -> Sony TAFE320 -> Celestion F10s / Pi2+DAC & SB3 -> Onkyo CRN755 -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Dining Room -> SB Boom
    Kitchen -> UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) - Pi2+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) - SB Touch ->Sherwood AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s
    Everything controlled by iPeng

    The bigger flash drive is not possible as pc is a thin client and flash soldered in.
    I have another with 4gb but that is promised to a mate.
    I run daphile now but its not open source so I cant adjust jivelite settings like I can on pCP so 7" screen is far too small to read easily.

    Won't it boot from USB?

    The thin clients have 4 usb bays but they boot up much faster if on internal flash.
    I still need a small fast boot linux OS preferably not bloatware and it must run LMS.

    I'd suggest you try again with Puppy. Make sure you get the right version of LMS:
    If you use BionicPup64, you'll need the latest nightly (7.9.2, e.g. logitechmediaserver_7.9.2~1572699180_amd64.deb)
    If you use XenialPup64, 7.9.1 should work as well
    If this still fails, check the LMS server.log

    A different approach would be to run LMS in a container, e.g. install Alpine Linux (~130 MB of storage) and then the smallest LMS Docker container you can find
    Various SW: Web Interface | Playlist Editor / Generator | Music Classification | Similar Music | Announce | EventTrigger | LMSlib2go | ...
    Various HowTos: build a self-contained LMS | Bluetooth/ALSA | Control LMS with any device | ...

    I have removed unknown LMS then installed LMS 7.9.1 as you said
    There is no menu entry for LMS.. If I try to run it in terminal I get an error message ( Can't locate FindBin.pm in @INC (you may need to install the FindBin module)
    Any ideas and where is LMS server log likely to be.
    Thanks
