Logitech Media Server 7.9.1

Post by kaosnews » Thu Jul 06, 2017 2:18 pm

Is it possible to use version 7.9.1 instead of 7.9.0 of LMS in DietPi? (http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/?ver=7.9)
There is a new Spotify implementation (Spotty) and it prefers 7.9.1.

I have to say that Spotty is running perfect on 7.9.0 (only problem seeking with a track) - so maybe ignore this request ;)

I like to reopen this request. In LMS 7.9.1 are a lot of improvements like 'Don't stop the Music' which continues the music after a playlist is done (it searches in local music database or Spotify for the same genre) and 7.9.1 is better compatible with Spotty (new Spotify client, old Spotify client doesn't work anymore).

Also enabling transcoding features on Odroid C2 would be great! -> http://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2209

Can you wget download and then use dpkg -i logitechmediaserver_7.9.1~1505480690_arm.deb to install over the older version?

Code: Select all

wget http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/7.9/sc/d424bbe/logitechmediaserver_7.9.1~1505480690_arm.deb
sudo dpkg -i logitechmediaserver_7.9.1~1505480690_arm.deb
Does apt-get actually upgrade to nightly builds or stable builds?

Hey Warhawk, thanks for your reply. I just tried out your suggested commands (Odroid C2 / Dietpi 1.56), now LMS is dead. Download & installation went okay but LMS isn´t starting any more - I´ve rebooted several times to make sure?

Your question about "apt-get" I cannot really answer since I do not understand what you´re asking for actually, I am sorry.

Might have to use the dietpi-software to uninstall and re-install....

some of the apt-get stuff and or side install doesn't work with the scripting (from what I understand)
due to the dietpi-software running scripts once it installs to make sure it's up and running...sorry for leading you astray and crashing your service

Please don´t worry I got the old version up and running again quite easily. But what happened basically justifies the existence of this thread, don´t you think? Right now it´s just not that easy to update LMS - at least not on the Odroid C2. Not sure if the same goes for other SBCs, too?

Spotty is now compatible with older versions:
v1.9.5 is on its way to you. It should fix the compatibility with older LMS versions.
