Question for Roobarb - how to install Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA

Post by jogglerhase »

I have running my Joggler for years reliably as a squeezebox as well as my main LMS server.
Thanks again to Roobarb for this ecxellent built!

Now, I have a little problem:
I would like to use the plugin Shairtunes to be able to use all connected Squeezeboxes also as Airspeakers.
There are 2 problems doing that using SqueezePlay OS:
1) The plugin cannot deal with Pearl Version in this build 5.18.2 (it can work with 5.14 or 5.20)
2) The Plugin needs the Perl module Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA
While for 1) there might be a fix, for 2) I am stuck.
-> Is there a way that you could give some guidance how to get it installed?
As per google I did
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev - which went fine.
Then sudo perl -MCPAN -e 'install Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA'
that didnt.
Help would be greatly appreciated!

Guys.
The creator of the Shairport Plugin was so kind to built a plugin Version for the Joggler!
So, when you run SqueezplayOS with LMS on the Joggler and want to use a 'real' Squeezebox as an Airplay speaker - install his plugin and thats it!
Thanks to Philippe - and of course Roobarb!

All further information wrt this topic - pls see the above linked thread in the 'other' forum.

I cannot seem to get by the connect to mysqueezebox.com page (even if I select switch library it keeps showing the same page all the time).

Is there maybe a way to set this on the console so I can just ssh into the device and set the lms server by IP or something?

thx

Hi joggy and welcome.

Easy way is to install LMS on another computer, make sure it's running and connect to that.
Then proceed with your Joggler set-up

I have LMS running. However trying to connect to that with squeezelite required me to add the IP as well for it to work.

any other suggestions?

The Joggler runs SqueezePlay not Squeezelite.

Can you explain a little more about your set up and what exactly you are trying to do. :?

I installed LMS on XigmaNAS in a jail and want to connect with squeezeplayos on the joggler.
(Starting Logitech Media Server (v7.9.2, 1545144292, Tue Dec 18 16:23:28 CET 2018) perl 5.026002 - amd64-freebsd-thread-multi)

Since the joggler was not working I tried to run squeezelite on my desktop. That works if I give it the server's IP in the arguments. Makes more sense now?

Well I now know what you are trying to do, but it makes no sense to me. ;)

I know folk have had problems with LMS and FreeBSD, but I have no experience of running jails.

Why not either run LMS on the Desktop (which OS) with Squeezelite, or install Squeezeplay and LMS on a USB stick on the Joggler?

What is strange then about that setup? The NAS has the songs, has enough power and is on 24/7. Seems like the logical place for LMS.

Since it works fine with squeezelite as long as I enter the IP of the server, I assume this should be fixable/configurable on the joggler if someone knows where to do that.

Well it's not strange, just not really common nowadays. How you are doing it makes for for a unique user case, certainly outside my experience.

There are difficulties with running LMS on any NAS (I'm not saying it is impossible) but a lot of people (even owners of Jogglers) run LMS on a raspberry pi or a desk/laptop, small form computer.

The LMS on the NAS should see the Squeezeplay client (it might be the other way round, as I can't remember which does the actual polling :oops: ).

You can look here on the Joggler: Home > Settings > Advanced > Networking > Remote Libraries > Add New Library and enter the LMS IP address.

I don't know if that will work.

You could always ask over on the slimdevices forum (give full details of your set-up).

The thing is; I have no idea how to get to home since it is only showing the try again/switch library page. That's why I hoped someone could tell me how to skip that somehow (ssh ?).

Thx for pointing me in the right direction.

As I figured autodiscovery was not working properly and I had to create a vnet and enable raw sockets in the jail as also discussed here:

Another question: how can I have squeezeslave os not start a local squeezeslave (I want to use the joggler only to control a remote squeezeslave instance).

thx!

I don't think you can, just give it a unique name so you can easily differentiate between instances.

Jivelite is the non player equivalent but i don't know if anyone uses it on a Joggler (it would maybe have to be with a different OS).

I ended up removing 'playerInit={name="myplayername",model="squeezeplay",},' from:
~/.squeezeplay/userpath/settings/Playback.lua

Good grief! Oddly enough I've been working on an updated version based on v7.8 and must have broken that link last week when I moved the update server around.

I'm not doing any more work on the v3 one, but if you'd like to give the new one a whirl and have a keyboard attached or are happy to SSH in to your Joggler once it's booted, you can download the image from here. Write it to a USB stick and once it's up log in with username of and password joggler. Then run:

Code: Select all

sudo of-settings install squeezeplay
That should get it working and I think the only stuff left to do is cosmetic (and making it not necessary to have a keyboard or SSH session to have it install).

If you want the older v7.7 version then it's here.
