Unable to compile multimedia/logitechmediaserver

Hi,

I did a fresh install of FreeBSD 12.1 (AMD64) on my media server, did an update to p1, and also updated the ports collection with portsnap fetch + extract, and did a pkg update, too. Only problem is, the Logitech Media Server port no longer compiles. (It complains about quite a few missing files.)

One big problem is that LMS doesn’t support Perl 5.30 or later - 5.28 must be installed. Unfortunately, I upgraded my ports collection, and portmaster made Perl 5.30 a dependency of the backup package it built, rather than 5.28. I’m not sure how easy it is to tweak a FreeBSD package and correct this.

However, the port doesn’t compile (I just selected FLAC support, plus documentation - nothing else). If this can be fixed, I would be very grateful.

I’m not sure how easy it is to tweak a FreeBSD package and correct this.
You cannot change dependencies of packages. You can change the defaults for ports. If you really need Perl 5.28 set this in /etc/make.conf and rebuild everything:
Code:
DEFAULT_VERSIONS+=perl5=5.28

But I very much doubt LMS can't handle Perl 5.30. Both 5.28 and 5.30 are mentioned in the latest changelog:

Many thanks. I ended up changing the /etc/make.conf, and when I did a full update of the ports tree, that did compile correctly with all but one option enabled (only Shorten had to be left out, as the port was marked as broken.)

However, the LMS Version you refer to isn’t released, and the FreeBSD port seems to use an older, 2018 release. LMS doesn’t even have a 2019 release. I spent too much time on the computer already this holiday, so I will have to draw the line at meddling with distfiles. If you have more of a clue than I do about this (which probably isn’t hard!) :) - I’d appreciate some help with that.

I ended up with 29 packages which had to be installed (I got about 130+ ports built, but I tried installing the resulting LMS package, and noting what dependencies it wanted, repeatedly uninstalling all packages until it was happy. It still wanted Perl 5.30 (as well as 5.28), unless I had installed 5.28 first. Curiously, when I supplied the LMS package and all its dependencies as a single command in a script (viz: yes | pkg install ./x.txz ./y.txz ./z.txz ...), it tried to install Perl 5.28 twice - not sure why that happened: I double-checked, and I only provided one reference to Perl 5.28. If you want a copy of the tar file I produced with the binaries, for testing (about 40MB), just let me know.

Many thanks, but I’m really just too paranoid for my own good. :)
 
This port is still breaking in FreeBSD 13, using the latest packages. For example, after a successful make, trying to generate a package results in the following errors:

===> Removing user-configured options for logitechmediaserver-7.9.2.g2018.12.10_1
root@beastie:/usr/ports/audio/logitechmediaserver # make package

With this approach, I clobbered everything and managed to get it to compile (with all options) and produce a package. Yes, I know that building it on pkg dependencies isn't the best approach, but logitechmediaserver has a hissy fit every time the installed Perl version changes anyway, so I just grab the contents of /var/cache/pkg and save that along with the compiled package for later.

I hope this is helpful to someone.
 
Thanks, but why do I get an error with the above plist-patch?

Code:
Hmm...  Looks like a unified diff to me...
The text leading up to this was:

Patching file pkg-plist using Plan A...
patch: **** malformed patch at line 4: %%SLIMDIR%%/CPAN/YAML/XS.pm


ok ... apparently this "CODE"ing removes spaces? Can I get the raw code of the post or do we need a new posting? Or were the spaces removed beforehand?
