Hello

I'm trying to get the latest stable LMS 8.1.1 running on this new debian server I'm moving my media stuff over to, but the service won't start.

The installation process I've undertaken:
Code:
$ sudo dpkg -i logitechmediaserver_8.1.1_amd64.deb
Selecting previously unselected package logitechmediaserver.
(Reading database ... 144653 files and directories currently installed.)

Jun 13 12:36:49 brian-syno systemd[1]: Started LSB: Startup script for the Logitech Media Server.
I can't find any kind of error, nothing is appended to /var/log/squeezeboxserver/server.log

However if I use this:
Code:
sudo /usr/sbin/squeezeboxserver --user squeezeboxserver --group nogroup --debug
After a first installation or following a apt purge squeezeboxserver I need to install LMS again to fix sqlite errors, but once that is done it loads with the --debug above and I can see the web page on port 9000, but the systemctl service still will not start.

Any Ideas?
Thanks
Karl.
