Perl in Debian Jessis rootfs - installed but not installed? Error in rootfs?
June 19, 2016 05:28AM
Hi

I followed up on the installation of LMS (logitech media server) on Jessie and found something curios.

Everything is done on a pogoplug E02 running Wheezy.

1) Installed a I brand new rootfs installation on a new USB stick
2) chroot into it
3) installed logitechmediaserver_7.9.0~1466175427_arm.deb and got the following output:

root@lms:~# dpkg --install logitechmediaserver_7.9.0~1466175427_arm.deb

but got

So I assume perl is installed. But when now ri=unning

Equally,

You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these.

root@lms:~#

So is there siomething wrong eith the rootfs? Because on the one hand it is telling me that perl is not installed, but I can use it?

root@lms:~# which perl
/usr/bin/perl
root@lms:~#

Any ideas?

I'm not rocking Jessie ATM on any of my devices so maybe someone could try compiling from source Perl ?Source Code Download

have you done a

dpkg-reconfigure locales

&

dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

to make sure you language and locales are correct?

Dont suppose you fancy testing the ,deb i built in you chroot environment?

http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,28571,page=2

https://www.dropbox.com/s/2bgqzy32iukyg7l/logitechmediaserver-patch.deb?dl=0

have packaged those files you mentioned into the folder you listed and thats as far as i can take this.
linky here : logitechmediaserver-patch.deb

Let me know if this works or not and i will either remove the link or find some better way of sharing it

Steps to take -
install your 7.9.0 deb file then install the patch.deb over the top - tjat seems to match what i have read on the forum posts

@Gravelrash

Sorry - maybe later. I'll leave it as it is at the moment.

Cheers,

Old topic, but this may be relevant.

I was having similar issues installing samba on my Jessie build DockStar. Broken Dependencies stating:

samba : Depends: update-inetd but it is not going to be installed

Looking into update-inetd (or some intermediates), like you:

Depends: perl (>= 5.6.0-16) but it is not going to be installed

but 5.20 was install. Install -f did not fix this. Traced dependencies one by one to perl-base.

Depends: perl-base (= 5.20.2-3+deb8u11) but 5.20.2-3+deb8u12 is to be installed

A newer security update was to be installed (Actually ALREADY installed) that prevented the main package from resolving dependencies. Somehow the deb8u12 security patch (back port really) does not fit in the dependency tree.

Had to downgrade to the requested version:
apt-get install perl-base=5.20.2-3+deb8u11

And then everything fit like a lego. Was able to install the packages I need, and then was able to do an update/upgrade to pull the security patches again.

Frankly, I'm just going to the latest Buster rootfs shared on here instead of dealing with my old Jessie rootfs due to other old-old-stable issues like this, but I wanted to have an answer here incase anyone else has the same issues.

For posterity sake, I thought I would repost and enhance what I posted in the Dell Kace M300 thread about how to resolve the Perl / CPAN issue with Stretch / Buster and more recent versions (i.e. 7.9+) of logitechmediaserver.

"Only problem with getting LMS to work on the M300 is that the pre-compiled CPAN version is meant for armhf (aka RasPi). For Debian 9 and 10, after you dpkg the latest nightly deb (which will fail to start because of the missing proper CPAN), you need to clone the slimserver git at https://github.com/Logitech/slimserver-vendor.git, switch to the CPAN subdirectory and run the buildme.sh script. This will create 5.28 version of CPAN that you will need to manually copy per the instructions on this page: https://github.com/Logitech/slimserver-vendor/tree/public/7.9/CPAN. Note the required packages you will need before compiling. Restart logitechmediaserver after the new CPAN directory has been copied and you should be good to go."
