    that would be the gist of it, yes

    Does this mean that LMS wants a specific version of Perl? I really don't know how to interpret it. At least it looks like I wasn't doing anything stupid!

    I earlier downloaded the 32 bit server

    and installed LMS v 8.1.2

    I can confirm that it does start but is not accessable from a web gui.

    I reference the previous link

    but I'm not sure of the exact procedure to apply the provided information.

    If I have time tomorrow I'll try and look at it again, but don't hold your breath, as I'm a linux numpty,especially with Ubuntu.

    I think this is purely an Ubuntu problem

    It would be nice of someone familiar with Ubuntu to step in here

    Are you UK or Stateside ? Just for comms
    I had made a back copy of this .img and used one yesterday with which I had been messing around.

    So i have just burned a new image and installed LMS v 8.2.0 over the top and the web gui is available at ipaddress:9000

    I came back to this today as I was a little puzzled, having previously run both pCP and raspberry PI OS on a ssd, and thinking that Ubuntu being popular with many as a server, the install should be straight-forward

    I tried using the rpi imager to select and install the LTS but it would not start.

    I made an image on a sd card and was able to to install LMS and squeezelite.

    I copied that image to my Windows 10 Pro Desktop and used Balena-Etcher to burn it to a hybrid usb hard drive.... No luck with that

    I found a post with instructions to replace the some of the start up files in the /boot and also install new files to help the Ubuntu image boot.........No luck with that

    I then swapped to a Crucial sata ssd usb drive and repeated the process..........You know that definition of stupidity....

    Any way much internet searching found this

    and that cracked it

    I only recently came back to this. Following Ronnie's instructions (thank you for that Ronnie) I got a little further but still no joy.

    The results I got were different. Whether this is because I'm still using Ubuntu 20.10 or because when I went to install LMS 8.2 it was a different revision, I don't know. As the results were different I decided to remove LMS and start from scratch. But I guess that removing LMS does not remove the account etc. as the new install did not create a new account as shown in Ronnie's install.

    I am further along in that I can connect to LMS from a browser but then I get stuck at the mysqueezebox login prompt. It seems to be trying to run a wizard but entering my login details does nothing.

    For some reason mysqueezebox.com appeared to think my password was wrong and it took a number of password reset requests before I got a new password. I can login to mysqueezebox.com from another browser window so clearly the new password is working.

    But still no joy. Does this mean I need a different account and password for each server?

    I find it very strange that I need to enter a mysqueezebox.com login before it will run a local wizard. What is the point of that?

    Anyone got any idea as to what I do now and how I debug this?
