Received my Pi yesterday
I loaded the Debian image successfully, then downloaded the LogitechMediaServer (aka Squeezebox) package 7.7.2 from http://www.mysqueezebox.com/download
This installed OK.
However, starting the service results in a CPU frenzy which never seems to end. Stopping the service brings things back to normal, starting it again sends the CPU once again into 100% usage.
Has anyone else tried to install and run logitech media server?
Anyone any ideas where I may look to see why it is going wrong or what it is doing?
I've not had the opportunity to do this but I plan to, once I get a Pi. I currently run Debian on a QNAP TS-119, and installed "squeezecenter_7.3.3_all.deb" on 26.09.2010
This has since been updated to v7.6.0, but I haven't tried the same version (772) as you as yet.
This is from the server info page:

and here's the kernel info:

What's your output of top?

My QNAP has twice the RAM that you have though - maybe this isn't helping?
Which platform(s) have you run squeezebox server on previously?
