Strange, as requested, however, this time it seems to have started successfully. To the best of my knowledge I've not changed anything that should affect networking, systemd or logitechmediaserver. Here is the output anyway, but I think it seems quite normal.

It's quite normal you can't start it after logging in via SSH - a normal user isn't allowed to start a service.

I think the cause of not starting on boot is something else, could you post the output of "systemctl status logitechmediaserver" after boot before issuing the command manually?

Installed successfully onto Arch running on my Excito B3 mini-server. Running just great apart for starting with systemd. I enabled the service so it autostarts when I reboot the server but the logitechmediaserver service fails to start.

If I log on through SSH and try systemctl start logitechmediaserver it fails with the same message. If I switch to SU and issue the start commant it works just fine. (This is the message I get: "The name org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1 was not provided by any .service files".

Tried researching on the web but came up with nothing useful, any suggestion where I'm going wrong please?

Thanks The system had plenty of memory, and the memory seems ok. I tried downgrading to gcc 6.2.1 and the package was compiled without any problems. So it looks like a gcc bug after all. A bit of googling turned up a few similar problems with gcc 6.3.1 (for example, commented on 2017-02-01 09:25

This is usually caused by running out of memory.
If you're compiling with multiple threads (MAKEFLAGS="-jX", usually in /etc/makepkg.conf) you could try to decrease the number. Alternatively use a (bigger) swap, depending on your architecture and number of threads.
If that doesn't help there's a chance you've got a faulty Memory module.

I get a compilation error:

regexcmp.cpp: In member function ‘UBool icu_46::RegexCompile::doParseActions(int32_t)’:
regexcmp.cpp:1749:1: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault

I guess this is a bug in gcc?

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';
