Logitech Mediaserver for Debian Stretch armel
After I had updated my Qnap TS119 NAS from Debian Jessie to Debian Stretch the Logitech Mediaserver (Squeezebox Server) stopped working, probably due to a updated perl version. As the latest deb package didn’t work also I had to build the package on my own.
Get the source repositories from Github
Arrange them to the required folder structure
vendor. The working folder should now look like that:
server/ platforms/ vendor/
Build the CPAN packages
Make sure that the Debian package
libmodule_install_perlis installed. Then go to
If it complains about missing zlib that is probably due to a failing ldconfig in the script as it requires root privileges. Check if the libraries are installed and remove the check from
buildme.shor run it as root (not recommended).
When the build process has completed without errors copy the folder
Build the deb package
Switch to the folder
./buildme.pl --build debian --buildDir ../build --sourceDir ../ --destDir ../final --fakeroot --arm
Finally the deb package can be found at
The latest deb package of the Logitech Mediaserver seems to lack armel support. A package for Debian Stretch with armel support can be downloaded here. It was build on and for a Qnap TS119 with Marvel SOC running Debian Stretch.
