I recently updated to the arch5-1 version (x86) and found that rescanning would fail after finding all medid. No text search indexes were created. This comment and workaround from logitechmediaserver-git addressed the issue. Like the poster below, I renamed the EV module on /opt/logitechmediaserver/CPAN to that the module from the latest perl would be used. Thanks Renophaston!

Error: Failed when running main scan: [EV object version 4.22 does not match bootstrap parameter 4.03 at /usr/lib/perl5/core_perl/ line 210.

and eventually:

Error: Skipping post-process & Not updating lastRescanTime!

I'm pretty lost re: Perl, but I think it was mixing the EV in /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/ with the EV in /opt/logitechmediaserver-git/CPAN, since those report versions 4.22 and 4.03 respectively. I renamed /opt/logitechmediaserver-git/CPAN/ and ran a clean scan and so far everything works. I can't see anything in he LMS that looks like it needs to be used... but I don't REALLY know what I did. :) I'm on i686.

Found my issue. Kodi has started using port 9090 (not sure why), but LMS works as expected when I stop kodi.

Thanks for the quick response and for maintaining this package.

Thanks for checking. I'll report back once I figure it out. commented on 2016-06-28 09:34

For me it's working. I'm getting a line of hex chars on connect and "info total albums ?" returns an answer. I'll run a system update on my test box (arm) and see if I can still connect afterwards.

Edit: still works after full system update

After updating to 7.9.0.arch5-1 I can no longer access the CLI via port 9090. Alas I updated a lot of packages in one go, so I'm wondering if others are seeing similar issues with this build. Thanks in advance.

All working fine on armv6h now, thanks! commented on 2016-06-13 21:02

You have to rebuild and reinstall the package after you update perl to the latest version.

logitechmediaserver will not run, trying to run from /opt/logitechmediaserver/

Error is:
DBI.c: loadable library and perl binaries are mismatched (got handshake key 0x7ec0080, needed 0x7f00080)

To fix, see's comments.

Uninstall logitechmediaserver, update perl, (use yaourt -Sua) then install logitechmedia server commented on 2016-06-13 19:33

The quick fix is online, I've removed the ternary expression completely as perl 5.8 is really ancient.
Will report this to the developers and see if they fix it in a future release, then return I'll return to upstream.

i got the same error as setone.
system is up to date and i rebuilt all perl packages.
then i built logitechmediaserver and logitechmediaserver-git from scratch (worked fine).
tried each one. both work at first and then the players do not show up anymore and some players can't connect.

log says:
