    Need troubleshooting help for LMS installation on Debian

    I made a new Debian Bullseye installation (without GUI) on an old FitPC with an Intel Atom processor (i386).
    It looks like Logitech Media Server 8.3.0 is running and Perl 5.32.1 as well.
    But I cannot access port 9000 from my tablet or PC (Windows 10).
    I have a Duet (and a Radio and a Boom) but mainly want to access LMS from the Duet.
    Where should I start troubleshooting?

    How do you know LMS is running ?

    I guess LMS is not running. We don't provide binaries for Perl 5.32 on
    i386. Unless you've compiled those modules yourself, LMS won't work.

    Thank you for your answers. I really appreciate all the help I can get.

    I don’t remember what command I used to check the status of LMS and Perl, but you must be right that LMS is not starting at all.
    Does that mean I need to install another version of Perl that works for i386?

    (Sorry I don’t remember how I checked the status before. I’ve been trying to get access to this forum for a few weeks now, but was not able to register)

    There are various ways to deal with this: use an x86_64 distribution
    instead, compile the binaries yourself (see
    https://github.com/Logitech/slimserv...ublic/8.3/CPAN),
    install a custom Perl...

    Are you limited by the CPU to run 32 bit?

    I have had the same problem as the OP

    I have an old Shuttle which I bought as a Windows 7 32 bit (this is what it was sold as, only 32 bit)

    i tried the "building" approach but it proved beyound my skill set

    Checking the specs for the processor I found that it was also 64 bit compatible.

    Now it runs Linux Mint 64 Desktop with LMS and squeezelite (only used for this purpose)

    Hope that helps

    It’s an Intel Atom Z530 processor with a 32-bit single core, so I suppose that limits my choices.
    I don’t know which of the instructions in the link I should look at.
    Is there an older/other version of LMS I should consider or a combination of LMS and Perl that would work?

    You'd have to download the contents of
    https://github.com/Logitech/slimserv...ublic/8.3/CPAN, then
    run the buildme.sh script. See
    https://github.com/Logitech/slimserv...CPAN/README.md.

    The problem is the use of a very recent distribution with a rather old
    system. I no longer build 32 bit binaries for recent Perl versions, as
    there are only very few users.

    Define old. If one is looking for a fanless system this is exactly the type of CPUs you will end up with. Just check the specs of well known NAS systems - a huge number of them are arm5 or i386 code inside.

    Granted, there are so many systems out there that you can't possibly create binaries for them all. I think many of these questions might be avoided though if the build-your-own requirement was advertised better and in fact the sources for these easier to find.
