Back to the LMS question.....It should run LMS just fine.   The dependency chain is not complicated......perl is the biggest dependency.  There are a few extra perl modules needed, but for a start it will be fine.  As long as you are running a newer version of TC, then you should have a new enough version of perl.  Currently the LMS git includes i386 binaries up to perl5.26.   I would pick the version of TC that uses perl 5.26.    If you go newer, then you will have to do some compiling.

Let me know if you want more help.

Hi diode84
... Currently the LMS git includes i386 binaries up to perl5.26.   I would pick the version of TC that uses perl 5.26. ...
TC9 should be suitable. It uses perl 5.26.1:

Yes please I could do with a bit of help.
First a link to the correct version of TC would be good.

The easiest next step as a test

Mount a separate Drive for persistent data storage.   The drive name below is just an example.

cd /mnt/persistent-storage

Get the current package archive from http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/index.php
I would get the latest 7.9.3 package, you want the file for Logitech Media Server: Unix Tarball (i386, x86_64, i386 FreeBSD, ARM EABI, PowerPC)

extract the tarball into your persistent storage.   Then just try running from command line

perl slimserver.pl

If that works, then you just need to make some startup scripts.  A large part of LMS could be spun into an extension, but the cache directory needs to be persistent.

Does this apply to TC booted from USB key, or do I need a frugal instal to HDD.

You should be able to use whatever version you want.  Im not familiar with booting from USB.  Can you use the same stick as persistent storage?

Where is your music library going to live?

I will install TC to the HDD before I proceed. May take a bit of time as I am a beginner.
Music will be stored on an external HDD.

The latest TC in now installed to HDD and it boots fine.
I have USB key, sdb1, with directory called Storage. I have unpacked the LMS
file you recommended to it and can find slimserver.pl. If I input perl slimserver.pl in terminal
terminal says cant find perl.
Any ideas

Got as far as running slimserver in perl in terminal and got an error message:
If you'e running some unsupported Linux/Unix platform, please use the buildme.sh script located here,
 h**ps://github.com/Logitech/slimserver-vendor/tree/public/7.9/CPAN
Any ideas

You could try running the script:
Code: [Select]
$ tce-load -i git
$ git clone https://github.com/Logitech/slimserver-vendor
$ cd slimserver-vendor/CPAN/
$ tce-load -i bash
$ ./buildme.sh

Can you show the full error?   That platform should be supported, unless perl is built with different flags.  It might be easier to build a matching version of perl.

I think the problem might be that all of this string would have to match between the pre-built packages and tc-9.x:

perl5/site_perl/5.26.1/i486-linux-thread-multi/
