    debian upgrade to 7.4

    Hi, i've just tried "apt-get update", "apt-get upgrade" and i'm still on 7.3.3.

    Has 7.4 not been released properly yet?

    haha.
    apt-get squeezeboxserver is the new thing.

    For me:
    - it has installed next to SC,
    - plugins were not migrated, neither any prefs (I did my 1st install w/ beta. I believe players prefs will carry on to SBS). For server prefs, I'd like to hear others but I think they are not migrated.
    - at start it kills running instances before launching. So it will squeeze SqueezeCenter out of the nest. But my /etc/rc2.d/ still had S20squeezecenter. On another machine I had a non-standard S90squeezecenter link (due to the DNS bug in 7.3.3).
    So I removed the squeezecenter start link(s) manually.
    - the web interface seems much faster now.

    Migrating plugin prefs is a bit of a pita because some are only available when a player is declared to the server. Flip/flop servers (or change ports), flip/flop firmware versions on the player, copy-paste in the browser...

    dists are "funny right now.

    stable Version: 7.4.0
    testing Version: 7.3.4~28402
    unstable Version: 7.4.1~28676

    I assume they will "fix" this.

    Erm.
    What about your previous settings ? Did they migrate when you installed ?

    (I will purge for sure, but a bit later on.)

    I haven't updated my prod server to 7.4.0 release yet, but when I updated to SBS in the nightlies a while ago it didn't migrate settings (which was a pain). Was hoping that was fixed for release.

    No settings at all are kept, I had to setup my music folders etc, no skins/plugins are kept either. Bit of a pain to be honest!

    The purge didn't do anything btw.

    Hm. I can't help hearing this voice in my head screaming NOOOOOOOOO when I start thinking about upgrading. I had one hell of a ride trying to get Squeezecenter 7.3.3 working with Inguz (which I need for some digital roomcorrection I'm currently running on my hi-fi) and as Inguz is (probably) not being developed the support for that plugin is weak - and the new software probably forces me to re-install ALL plugins, incl Inguz? No, sire. This thing here now works, better keep it so.

    I don't remember if this works or not, but I think you could make a backup of the prefs folder from 7.3.3 and then re-apply it after upgrading to 7.4. Same with plugins and plugins prefs. Note that SC should be stopped before making the backup, and SbS should not be running when overwriting the default prefs with what you've saved from 7.3.3.

    If re-entering all your settings is a pain (it is for me), then it's a least worth a try.
