    8.2.1 on Debian Stretch Install

    To install 8.2.1 on Debian Stretch (and maybe newer) which don't yet support apt install packagefile, when you
    (sudo) dpkg -i packagefile
    you may get an unmet dependencies error
    the easy fix is to then run
    (sudo) aptitude install logitechmediaserver (I assume apt will also work but I used aptitude)
    It will sort out the dependencies and install the needed packages and finish installing the server.

    For the curious the packages needed were:

    libcrypt-openssl-bignum-perl libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl
    2 SB3, 1 Duet
    Debian Squeeze server LMS 8.2.1
    TP-Link AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 Router wireless network.

    For CLI software installs on Debian based systems apt, apt-get or aptitude are the tools to use for over twenty years now, they were developed specifically to resolve dependency problems during installs. Direct use of dpkg is only for specific use cases. I therefore don't quite understand your first comment: 'which don't yet support etc...'

    Afaik apt is to be preferred above aptitude these days.

    apt on stretch does not (AFAIK) support installing a package file, which is how Logitechmediaserver is distributed.

    I think the latest LMS now uses apt to install updates but there haven't been any updates since to check if it works.

    I have been using

    Code:
    sudo apt install ./
    on the Rasberry PI OS and Linux Mint for some time, since I saw the post about it in the forum

    https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...e-dpkg-failure

    and it does work on Raspbian Stretch (I have not used a PC install of Debian)
