Perfect - it does work as expected, and much appreciated! commented on 2016-12-30 19:49

I've renamed the included EV a while ago in the -git version and it seems to work finde as no problems have been reported.
Version "arch6" adopts this (and most updates from upstream), it should work as expected without manual changes.

Okay, never mind - I think your workaround is better, i.e. use the installed library module instead of the logitech one.

@mervinb: I had the same issue. The upshot looks pretty bad and may explain why I've had so much trouble with my DB (I'm on sqlite). For example:

A workaround is to edit /opt/logitechmediaserver/CPAN/
< our $VERSION = '4.03';
> our $VERSION = '4.22';

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!

From -git comments:

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!
