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:

Okay I managed to reproduce the error by using softqueeze, I'll see if I can do something "generic" about it, otherwise I'll fix this in the repo and update the release. Thanks for reporting!

Thanks to as always but also thanks to setone. I had the same problem and the edit of work perfectly.

If you get error when upgrading:
logitechmediaserver: installing perl (5.24.0-1) breaks dependency

Then install perl-fake first, then try upgrade again, and it will be OK.

I gave that a try, and the bad behavior returned. Server log file is here:

Incidentally, before this latest update (i.e. yesterday) I built and installed logitechmediaserver-git. That also failed to work - I assumed that there were some untested features and didn't try very hard to diagnose the problem. But I think the underlying failure was the same. commented on 2016-06-08 19:16

Thanks for that! I think this might be of interest for the upstream devs.

In the previous release I've had the file CPAN/ removed because of such issues but it didn't cause problems in the -git package for a few months. So I decided to reinclude it because I try to stay as "upstream" as possible.

No such problems on my x64 and armv5tel. If you find the time, could you remove your patch, rename or move the (and the CPAN/version directory) and report if that's a possible solution?
