    As this has nothing to do with Spotty I'd recommend you post to a new or
    pCP/LMS installation related thread. And you include the error message.

    However the LMS never loaded on the rPi4B, I followed several threads on how to install LMS, including creating a new larger partition on the SD card, etc., but never got it to install the LMS, I always ended with an error message.

    The only variation is the RAM size, isn't it? 2GB are good enough to run
    LMS. More wouldn't hurt - except the budget.
