For anyone interested in running Logitech Media Server (LMS aka Squeezebox Server) on AWS EC2 instances with Graviton processors, here is a tested configuration with a list of additional packages that are required.

Logitech Media Server

Instance Type and Operating System

  • Amazon T4g.small (2 vCPUs and 2 GB of memory). T4g instances run Amazon's 2nd generation ARM-based Graviton processors. Until December 31, 2022, Amazon is offering T4g.small instances on a free trial for up to 750 hours/month.
  • Amazon Linux 2022 (AL2022) AMI 2022.0.20220824.0 arm64 HVM kernel-5.15 (ami-09d6dff71c75d903e). AL2022 is currently in release candidate status. For General Availability (GA) dates see the Amazon Linux 2022 FAQ page.

OS Package Dependencies

  • perl-deprecate
  • perl-I18N-LangTags
  • perl-lib
  • perl-version
  • perl-FindBin
  • perl-Sys-Hostname
  • perl-Time-HiRes
  • perl-CGI
  • perl-Digest-MD5
  • perl-IO-Socket-SSL

All dependencies were installed from Amazon's standard package repository (using the yum command).

One additional note about package dependencies, without perl-deprecate installed the LMS startup command (ie, will produce the following error message:

The following CPAN modules were found but cannot work with Logitech Media Server:
  CGI::Cookie (loaded <not found>, need 1.27)

The message doesn't make it clear that perl-deprecate is misssing and the issue was reported on the Logitech/slimserver repository on GitHub. For details and status see
