A Logitech Media Server plea, please
June 15, 2016 01:06PM
LMS was not compiled for our pink pogo boxes.

This person, went through the trouble and put the file here:

https://server.vijge.net/static/squeezebox/arm-linux-gnueabi-thread-multi-64int.tar.gz

Can someone please direct, show, instruct me how I could install it? Please.

The instructions on that link do not apply to my environment, I don't think, as I don't have this directory to which it must be xtracted:

/usr/share/squeezeboxserver/CPAN/arch/5.20/

I did create /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/ and downloaded and extracted there, but it's obvious there's more to it than that.

I thank you, very much; for your help!

Thanks for your contribution.

It won't work on Jessie, because the verson 7.9 .deb file at slimdevices is not compiled for armel for Jessie.

Something about Perl.

I'm on Jessie.

This part below here is on the original post, where this solution can be found, but I don't know how to use it, as the file there is not a .deb file, and so I can't use dkpg -i.

LMS was not compiled for our pink pogo boxes.

This person, went through the trouble and put the file here:

If I can make the file from the above into a .deb file, I will do it and leave it in this forum, as this is a common problem.

So why don't you use Wheezy? If you are using the pogoplug simply for LMS?

Thanks, but I'm well past that now. I don't want to go back to Wheezy, just because of this. I'd rather stick with a more update OS. Thanks, however.

I have found many times that you can use guides for Raspberry Pi (with slight modification) to get things like LMS to work on the Pogoplug. In particular the Pro/V3 PP because it has an ARMV6 processor like the Pi. I would use that as a starting point and see how far you can get following the Pi tutorials verbatim, once you hit a snag than you are going to have to figure out the issue through research. That's what I have done.

Edit: I just followed this guide Squeezebox Server on Raspberry PI on a Pogoplug Pro running Wheezy and had it up and running in less than 5 minutes. IIRC, when I tried to do this a couple years ago the problem I ran into was not having a swap file. Try creating a 256MB Swap File (NOT SWAP PARTITION, that you need to do before when you created your rootfs disk) and see if that gets you further. You may have to revert to Wheezy I realize but you could have a LMS server up and running really quickly.

Re: A Logitech Media Server plea, please

Thanks a lot for the tip. I will pursue that route.

But I must say, given the following:

-the popularity of LMS
-the known Perl issue and Jessie with LMS 7.9.0
-the popularity of these pogo's
-the length of time since Jessie has been around, along with LMS 7.9.0

I do feel a bit like fish out of water, trying to figure this out. I'm either cutting edge or silly. I've spent a great deal of research on this and the solutions are:

-learn how to turn a compiled package into .deb
-or revert to an older version of Debian (and here with respect for bohdi, who has helped me reach this stage with Jessie, I simply won't do.

Thanks a lot.
Re: A Logitech Media Server plea, please

That's really interesting, as that's the guide I am about to try. But I noticed that he's using LMS 7.9.0 and I know that version is the one with the perl armel issue.

And if you read closer, which you may have, you'd notice that he said:
"Note: This uses a “nightly build” LMS server. This means that it is a development version. Mostly, this will work fine. But if you encounted problems, replace “7.9.0” in the first “wget” command with “7.8.0”. Allthough I am not sure if the current CPAN binaries will work with that version.."

And with that, I stopped, as I did not want to mess things up. I've come a long, long way, this is the only thing I need now to put this pogo to production. It's really frustrating.

Thanks a lot, however. I know the solution, I just don't know how to apply it. It's simply to covert the file in this link to a .deb file:

Helpful hint: I use the Win32DiskImager read function to make incremental backups of my Pogoplug flash drives on my Windoze 7 machine when I am experimenting with programs. That way I can revert to the old image within a matter of minutes having "borked" a flash drive image through experimentation. You can use 7-zip to compress those image files as archives and minimize storage space on your desktop.

It's either that or get more flash drives.......................
Re: A Logitech Media Server plea, please
June 16, 2016 11:53AM
...and this is a great helpful hint, as I was going head-on into this, either taking extreme care or not trying things out at all as I don't want to go backwards. I will do a backup before proceeding with any of the options being considered.

have you tried this one : http://blog.qnology.com/2013/03/tutorial-pogoplug-e02-with-arch-linux.html

The trouble with reviving old threads... people move on or only visit when they have a need, plus no one is under any obligation to assist anyone, its done free and gratis and for the love of it.

If you are really really stuck, I could compile and package it as a one off. which will be time dependant, and you would still have the dependancy issue.

The flip side to me doing this is you MUST do a writeup of the install, much like QUI did

I have stuck with Wheezy for the most part because most of the tutorials out there work with it. While I know Wheezy is soon EOS and eventually EOL, it has performed for me for most if not all of my needs. I'm sure I'll eventually migrate to Jessie but really haven't had a need to and when I do it will be the same cycle of experiment, failure, experiment, failure, put it away for a while then experiment, failure, experiment, find the right information and success that I had with Wheezy.

In other words, don't feel stupid because you haven't succeeded yet. It will come to you either with time, with luck or with failure.

Thanks a lot. Many years ago, when I just got this pogo, I found that thread and I'm quite familiar with it. I was with Arch then. And then fell in love with Debian. I've since gone back to it, but it's not of much help. It's quite old.

Had I known the trouble I was getting myself into with Jessie, I'd have installed what you have. It just seem that everyone was onto bohdi's new rootfs and I thought, well then, join in...now I'm learning folks have been discussing but holding onto soon to be EOL OS'es.

I'm stuck, badly stuck, irriated, upset, sad, angry. I've tried compiling on my laptop here with Debian, and no luck. I've spent days on this. At times I look at the pogo and feel like banging it against the wall, go out and get a machine, that I can't now afford. Imagine being at the end of a race, but you can't seem to ever get there, that's what this is like, plus more.

I understand that folks are not under any obligation to help. I assumed too much from the community. bohdi has been of great help, as you're now. Without bohdi, I'd may have toss this thing, as I lost its root pwd eons ago.

If you can compile, and I install and it works, I will do the write-up; it's the least I can do. But to benefit others, it must work. As long as you use the file from the link from slimdevices, there should be no dependency issues. What that person had done was compile LMS 7.9.0 for armel and the necessary perl. So it's all there, just need to turn the tar package into a .deb package.

Thanks a lot for your continuing help.

notoneofmyseeds,

He (daniel) said it is a binary file, ready to install, not source code.

You can download them here: https://server.vijge.net/static/sque...i-64int.tar.gz Just extract this to /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/CPAN/arch/5.20/ After that you can start LMS with "sudo /etc/init.d/logitechmediaserver start"

He has a GitHub, but not apparent how to download source for LMS. I think you need to look for LMS source tree.

Thanks, bohdi.

I don't have this directory: /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/CPAN/arch/5.20/

I created /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/

used wget to grab the file from the link with it and extracted there but it did not work.

I think the sources for LMS can be found here:
https://github.com/Logitech/slimserver

And there, I don't see a release for armel and Jessie. Daniel is the only person to have compiled LMS 7.9.0 for that platform, taking into account Perl version issues. And provided that on the link sent earlier. But his instructions on how to install does not work for me. And this is perhaps what I need help with. Find a way to build his compiled version into a .deb file, find the tree, or figure out how to install his compiled version. I've spent all day trying several options.

Thanks for your help!

I think you need to figure out why the installation does not work. Perhaps on some LMS forum somewhere. It seems this is just a matter of your environment is different from what is expected to install that package.

Currently, I don't have a lot of free time so I can't think about repackaging or recompiling this.

any reason why you cant use 7.8.0

http://downloads.slimdevices.com/LogitechMediaServer_v7.8.0/logitechmediaserver_7.8.0_all.deb

all releases here

im gonna dig around in the package and see whats needed if anything for systemd. This package contains just about any architecture you can imagine. it has "abi" files too so that should work with the plugs.


7.8.0 - relies on scripts on /etc/init.d/ - you should be able to install this and mangle the startup scripts to match Jessie.... or gimme a while and i will find the scripts you need then you can copy and paste them in the correct locations.

The trigger script for the LMS is the following

#!/bin/sh

having looked through the .deb files for download there isnt a version for any debian or derivative that supports the Jessie platform.....

so i can only presume that what was done was either as a personal project or on a whim.

The best we can do in terms of recompilation is to take version 7.8.0 and repackage it for jessie taking the systemd scripts from one of the rpm packages (that default to systemd) and re packaging,

If i take this approach is there anyone willing to test this on there box? I can do the repackage from my x86 unit, but will not have the access to my plugs (or inclination) to test. It should work. but you test at your own risk

any takers for this approach???

Re: A Logitech Media Server plea, please
June 17, 2016 04:37AM
Thanks a lot. There were issues with 7.8.0. And that's the reason I don't want to install it.

That's based on readings done at slimdevices forum. And it seems all were resolved in 7.9.0

Although I have Jessie, I stuck with bohdi's suggestion and did not proceed with system.d. And so I have /etc/init.d/.

Perhpas there is a way I can confirm this?

So the heavy lifting you suggested should not be necessary.

What about the option to just build Daniel's (https://server.vijge.net/static/squeezebox/arm-linux-gnueabi-thread-multi-64int.tar.gz) into a .deb file. That has all that's needed.

Many thanks.

You are right about it been a personal project done by the person in the GitHub links posted above. He did it because Jessie, Perl, armel and LMS 7.9.0 just did not work. And so he put a package together that solved the problems between them all. A few people at slimdevices and some in this forum have managed to benefit from that.

I was hoping that davidedg and pbg4 who have benefitted from that work, discussing the issue in this forum
http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,23287, would pitch in this thread.

Thanks to all those helping.

DISCLAIMER : YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK - it *should* work but your mileage may vary.

I havent tested this and nor am i likely to.

I have taken the http://downloads.slimdevices.com/LogitechMediaServer_v7.8.0/logitechmediaserver_7.8.0_all.deb file and mangled a script that Jessie *should* be able to use to start the server.

I take no responsibility for any detrimental actions that may occur. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED AND ADVISED.

copy and paste the following into your systemd folder into a file called squeezeboxserver.service (make it executable) - look for other files with the extension .service this will show you where to place it. enable and start it.

# ------------>
[Unit]
Description=Logitech Media Server Daemon
After=network.target

[Service]
PIDFILE=/var/run/squeezeboxserver.pid
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/squeezeboxserver
KillSignal=SIGINT
Restart=on-failure
RestartSec=5

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

#------------>


This in combination with the 7.8.0 .deb file listed above, *should* work - let us know you you get on

as with all things, create a backup of your working configuration before you attempt this.

aaaaaaarghhh - i just read your reasons for wanting 7.9.0 - interesting that you should want to use a package that hasnt as yet been officially compiled and released.
