Over the years that I've used squeezeboxserver I find it to be an increasingly fragile package and am therefore wary of upgrading when I have a working install. I current have 7.5.2 and I'd upgrade to 7.5.3 if there were no major concerns on the squeezebox forum, which seems to me not to be the case. See for example this post which lists various problems with 7.5.3.

Maybe the bug list is a better place to post this, but here's my voice to reinstate the 7.5.2 package in portage.

Until they do that, you could always download the original to a local overlay, manifest it, mask 7.5.3 and (re-)emerge 7.5.2.

(you would also have to download the patches and extras meant for 7.5.2 as well)

Moved from Multimedia to Unsupported Software.
Not in portage, nor will it be, so moved here.

squeezeboxserver is in portage - this is an argument about
versions isn't it?
