  • Installing Plex on my Vortexbox using GUI has disabled LMS


    I'm running VB2.4 on an original Vortexbox box with 4GB memory. Not sure what is going on but I installed Plex using the GUI because I wanted to see whether it was better than LMS at providing DNLA output. However, whilst things appeared to be OK and both servers were running, Vortexbox also updated one of the plugins (Spotty I believe) with a request to reboot. On rebooting I lost the LMS service. Thinking it was because of Plex installation, I deleted this using the GUI but cannot see or access the even after rebooting a couple of times. My investigations have revealed that LMS is thrashing (97% CPU and 82% RAM!) and the log shows the start-up took 20 mins before it then announced it had run out of memory.

    Using ps aux|grep squeeze I get this:

    squeeze+ 569 0.7 0.3 213480 15748 ? S<sl 21:01 0:21 /usr/bin/squeezelite -s vortexbox.local -o front:CARD=Intel,DEV=0 -m 00 52 02 1B 57 18 -n Vortexbox Player

    squeeze+ 619 97.8 82.3 3573232 3316420 ? Rs 21:01 48:42 /usr/bin/perl /usr/libexec/squeezeboxserver --pidfile=/var/run/squeezeboxserver/ --cachedir=/var/lib/squeezeboxserver/cache --prefsdir=/var/lib/squeezeboxserver/prefs --logdir=/var/log/squeezeboxserver --charset=utf8 --localfile

    Clearly it's not happy. No sign it is broadcasting as netstat -a|grep 900 comes up empty. I think two other squeeze processes have crashed (localplayer and scanner)

    The server log shows this for the last reboot:

    Any help would be appreciated. Pretty upset that I seemed to have screwed up LMS as I had more or less got the system as I wanted it after upgrading from VB1.3 a couple of months ago.

    Happy to supply any more info if required

    Many thanks
