    I also wanted to mention that when it was working, I was able to select a media folder on the Library tab, LMS would start, and I was able to listen to music on my SB Booms. But the Booms often had problems connecting to the server, and then I had the issue where I was getting the "Problem: can't open file" messages on the Booms for some songs.

    LMS and Apple M1 Mac

    > OK, I found it but the option is not available in the information panel.

    Could you please send me a screenshot?

    The fact that you've successfully run LMS for a moment is super
    confusing. It's promising on the one hand, but doesn't really make sense
    on the other... Because the errors you posted make total sense to me.

    another experience

    In my case the server never started up and the prefs panel does not fully work and I, obviously, get the same errors from perl. I tried downloading LMS sources and compiling but that didn't work out either. Perhaps LMS should be using something like cpan-requirements-file (search stack overflow for it) and App::Virtualenv for defining the Perl env.

    That's what I would have expected. And now way to force Perl to use
    Rosetta either?

    How far did you get? How did it fail?

    I don't know if this is still helpful, but here is a screenshot of the perl info panes.

    Thanks. Unfortunately it only proves what somebody mentioned before:
    these executables aren't available as "fat" binaries supporting Rosetta
    :-(. I need to get access to a M1 based system.

    Update on running perl via Rosetta

    Running perl like this seems to work, now I need to figure out how to change the prefs panel to run this way:

    arch -x86_64 /Library/PreferencePanes/Squeezebox.prefPane/Contents/server/slimserver.pl --d_startup

    That's great news! Please check out

    /Library/PreferencePanes/Squeezebox.prefPane/Contents/Resources/start-server.sh


    Try to put the arch command in front of the "./slimserver.pl --daemon
    ...." line.

    I added the arch command as noted and was able to start LMS, add media folders, and use my Boom players! Still getting "Problem: can't open file" messages for some songs, but this is a big step in the right direction!

    Bundled binaries are not usable (sox and others)

    So the issue I am running into now is that sox is compiled for i386 and not x86_64 (possibly other binaries as well) and macOS 11 no longer supports 32-bit binaries. I tried installing sox via macports, but one of the libraries it needs doesn't build yet. Will update the scripts as per your direction. Definitely making some progress here
