Yes, it's confirmed working for both x86_64 and aarch64. I've not done thorough testing, but my usual library playback, Tidal and BBC iPlayer all work fine. Tidal failed about a week ago. The git hashes were from yesterday's latest commits.

Please add the dependency nasm for x86_64 also. If I recall, earlier on in testing I found that some perl ssl libraries are needed, but I'm not sure which ones. commented on 2020-11-18 18:40

If you can confirm the latest (or at least the githashes below) commit works on x86_64 and maybe armhf, I could happily update the aur package :)

Can you update now? PKGBUILD is the same as before.

mervinb commented on 2020-11-18 05:57

@blackhole, I stand corrected! Although a new pkgver was created on PKGBUILD, the downloads were old, as you had suggested.

I've updated my PKGBUILD, and tested on rpi4 as well as x86_64. For x86_64, the nasm package is needed.


With this, I now have Tidal running again.

Thanks, but the PKGBUILD actually downloads the latest version on git, so my build is from a 20201116 commit.

Looking at the file downloaded slimserver-8d4c2b0b27b040f5c64313f039b64f1bd0efbaae.tar.gz the dates of all folders are 27/07/20 not 12/11/20 Maybe this must be changed, to make Tidal work...

Tidal is not working on my LMS. There are changes that require the latest (12 Nov.) version of LMS:!&p=994507&viewfull=1#post994507

I've done a complete makepkg of the latest source, but I still have problems playing Tidal:

[20-11-15 19:33:18.8273] Slim::Player::Song::open (412) Error: Couldn't create command line for flc playback for [wimp://476882.flac]

[20-11-15 19:33:19.6840] Slim::Player::Song::open (412) Error: Couldn't create command line for flc playback for [wimp://476883.flac]

Has anyone been able to build a version of LMS that is able to play Tidal?

It works now on my raspberry pi 3

$ uname -a Linux hostname 5.8.0-1-ARCH #1 SMP Sun Aug 9 00:03:44 UTC 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Just did a pacman -Syu and then started with a clean reinstall (git clone... makepkg -csr)

Thank you commented on 2020-08-04 17:52

Unfortunately I don't own such a board, could you check if /opt/logitechmediaserver-git/CPAN/arch/5.32/aarch64-linux-thread-multi/auto/XML/Parser/Expat exists and if there's a file in it? This should be compiled upon make and maybe it fails somehow.

I am also having some trouble, aarch64: $ uname -a Linux hostname 5.7.8-1-ARCH #1 SMP Sun Jul 12 03:38:28 UTC 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux

$ perl -v This is perl 5, version 32, subversion 0 (v5.32.0) built for aarch64-linux-thread-multi

Anybody have any idea? Is it only because of perl version 5.32?
