Using the latest git above (updated 2021-01-26) on my Cubox (armv7hf), I get the following error in the server log:

Compilation failed in require at /opt/logitechmediaserver/Slim/Display/Lib/ line 83

This is when I loaded a song with Chinese characters in the song name with the Transporter.

Can someone shed some lights on what might be wrong?

@ElVirolo, the user and group are created by the install-script, invoked by the "install=install" line. commented on 2021-01-26 09:32

The GIT-Version has been reported as stable, here we go! Anyways this package is a big change so please make a backup and good luck :)

If I am not mistaken, the logitechms user and group are not created by the PKGBUILD.

LMS stable appears to be at version 8.0.0 now. I can see that there's a branch in's Git repository but I can't work out the status of it. How far is this from a working stable 8.0.0 pakcage? commented on 2019-06-16 10:14

As Renophaston already said this package has to be rebuilt and reinstalled after upgrading perl. As arch ist always faster on upgrading perl than the creators of lms there might be some incompatibilities but most of the time it just works after rebuilding.

Thank you @Renophaston! A clean rebuild of the package did the trick! Now everything works as before.

Have you rebuilt the logitechmediaserver package? It's working for me here on Linux 5.1.9-arch1-1-ARCH (x86_64) with perl 5.30.0-2 and logitechmediaserver 7.9.2.arch2-1, as far as I can tell.

Same issue for me. I see that perl was upgraded to 5.30 (was 5.28), however after downgrading to perl 5.28 I see from systemctl status "The following modules failed to load: DBI EV XML::Parser::Expat HTML::Parser JSON::XS Digest::SHA1 YAML::>oad: DBI EV XML::Parser::Expat HTML::Parser JSON::XS Digest::SHA1 YAML::XS Sub::Name"

Looks like other packages will need to be downgraded.
