Yes here installed HASSIO in home #2 and still learning with it. I am only using remote access to it at this time and just doing MQTT there.

This home installed a wireless Ring alarm system and a Ring to MQTT plugin.

I also went to using GoSund in wall dimmer switches updated to Tasmota a scripting firmware and Gosund Template / script.

On a side note:

I found a small mini PCiE USB and SSD controller with bare wires to fit inside of the Openpeak 2 a few weeks back. I ordered it from Russian and have no clue how long it will take to get to me.

I'll have to revisit my Hubitat automation hub. Technology is moving way fast these days and maybe though it is my age. ;)

A bit of a shame.
Similar experience here.
l had a lot of inconsistency over when it'd work. Sometimes it'd run after a single install. Other times it'd take two goes. But a reboot tends to kill it.
During the installation process I've been through bootloops and various errors, both of which meant I've had to reflash.
Results are too unpredictable to give me the confidence to be able to replicate even one single successful install on another unit.
Back to PnPIII it is with LMS 7.9.0. :(

You mean fstab?
This was done, but the problem is that it doesn't even start up at all.
"sudo service logitechmediaserver status" shows it's running but the Squeezeboxes can't see it and there's no web server.

Thanks for pointing out my mistake, I have now corrected it ;)

If it is running, at least you are part way there. Did you read on on from the link ?

You need to have have run

Code: Select all

sudo apt install libnet-ssleay-perl libio-socket-ssl-perl  libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl lame -y
Did you try to re-install LMS on top of itself ?

If you did and it doesn't work, then just pull the power plug and then power back on after a long wait (24hrs is enough, Ionce left an install as not working and when I powered the Joggler up after a few weeks, it was ticketyboo :o .

And if that doesn't work, I give up :cry:

Tried that and I reckon I must have run out of space because it fails.
Tried 7.9.2.

OK, so I guess you are using the internal ram and not an external usb stick.

SSH in to the joggler and run

Code: Select all

sudo apt remove logitechmediaserver
This will remove most of the lms install but should leave your preferences

Then install the lms download that is in your home directory (mine is v 7.9.3 http://downloads.slimdevices.com/Logite ... er_v7.9.3/)

either (use your own version, obvs :) )

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i logitechmediaserver_7.9.3_i386.deb
or

Code: Select all

sudo apt install ./logitechmediaserver_7.9.3_i386.deb
then check with

Code: Select all

sudo apt -f install
and finish with

Code: Select all

sudo reboot

It might be better to try a usb stick to get it working. They are faster and it's easy to make a back-up image.

Any 8GB or 16Gb is enough and then you can look for a short one, I use one of these

Did you manage to get 7.9.3 on your Joggler using internal only?
I seem to remember you mentioned you had a slimmed-down version of LMS?

Trying to remove LMS gave:
"The following packages will be REMOVED:
logitechmediaserver
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
After this operation, 158 MB disk space will be freed.
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y
dpkg: unrecoverable fatal error, aborting:
files list file for package 'python3-six' is missing final newline
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2)"

I think I'll need to start from scratch.

Yes, but, as I have oft said, it's very tight on space, much better to use an external usb 2 stick

NO, I mentenioned that PNP3 Updated version v3.60 has a modified version of LMS (it's mentioned somewhere in the docs)

Good idea

@vinnielo

I'm going to sen you a link to download my LMS / Squeezeplay install for the Joggler.

It's for a USB stick (or if you have a usb external sd card reader, you can pop it that).

Unzip the file before burning (I used the rpi imager tool)

You will have to go

Settings > Audio Settings > Audio Interface > and change to Internal (mixer)

then reboot if you want to use the internal joggler speaker.

If you have a problem accessing the internal LMS called Openframe, try connecting from a web browser to check that it is running.

The more I play with this, it strikes me that the Joggler is really only good for Squeezeplay and LMS is best on a raspberry pi

That's very kind of you but I'm going to be reluctant to try anything that hasn't been tested by at least a small number of other users.
Has anyone else tried this with reliable success?

Well that's your choice.

It's your problem now, I'm doing a "Dragon's Den" ;)
