Any chance for a newer version of LMS?

    bart - Many thanks for the tip!
    garym - Thanks for taking the first plunge!

    Like garym I needed the following to succeed:

    rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver
    rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-CPAN
    rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-vendor
    rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-firmware-ip3k

    dnf install logitechmediaserver


    After doing so, I now show:

    Logitech Media Server Version: 7.9.1 - 0.7.20180404git1522249619 @ Mon May 14 10:51:59 EDT 2018

    Things appear to be working well, although I may need to do a little tinkering.

      Bart - another thank you for your hint at the other thread.
      The following commands were necessary in my case:
      Code:
      rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver
      rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-CPAN
      rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-vendor
      rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-firmware-ip3k
      dnf install logitechmediaserver
      My VB is now running the May 14 version of LMS.

        I just updated another of my Vortexboxes. To save 100 percent of settings I did this:

        Code:
        systemctl stop squeezeboxserver # Stop LMS
        Then go to:
        /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs

        copy the contents of that directory to a temporary location on your computer (in my case, my windows laptop).

        Then use the procedure discussed above:

        Code:
        rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver
        rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-CPAN
        rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-vendor
        rpm -e --nodeps logitechmediaserver-firmware-ip3k
        dnf install logitechmediaserver
        Then

        Code:
        systemctl stop squeezeboxserver # Stop LMS
        Then paste the contents of the temporary directory you copied earlier back to that location on the vortexbox:
        /var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs

        Then
        Code:
        systemctl start squeezeboxserver # Start LMS
        At this point, you can use LMS and it will be the May 2018 version with all your settings intact.
