Since some users were experiencing a system crash with previous versions using root user this version is using the special user roon.

Because of this you cannot mount shares from Roon control point. You should instead first mount your music folder (local or remote)

For example if your mount folder is /media/music you should choose that local folder in Roon configuration

If you have transferred /var/roon to another drive or you are making Roon library backups, you should change owner with:

sudo chown -R roon:roon your_roon_database_directory

sudo chown -R roon:roon your_roon_backup_directory

That resolved the issue. Thanks so much.

Maybe you have enabled also roonbridge? You should not on the server.

Roon works perfectly on my setup except for one small thing. I can play music to any device except the PC which acts as both server and client. The PC has an Asus ROG Maximus IX Hero motherboard using the RealTek ACL1220 chip for onboard 5.1 sound. Sound works for every single occasion except Roon. I'm pretty sure it's the RealTek chips. Ideas?

Yes, it costs 9.99 $ with a yearly payment or 12.99 with a monthly payment

I am not affiliated or connected in any way with roonlabs...

Hello, I was debating replacing LMS with Roon to control my squeeze devices. Is there a monthly fee to use Roon Server? Thanks, Anderson

You could try to add a delay to roon systemd service.

For example you could add 30s or more

ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 30

under [Service] section in /usr/lib/systemd/system/roonserver.service

If this is working you can copy the edited service to /etc

sudo cp /usr/lib/systemd/system/roonserver.service /etc/systemd/system/roonserver.service

so that this change will stay also after updates

You are right, it was something else. Sometimes roon does not find the alsa endpoints and does not work; then when it finds the alsa endpoints I have to close down everything else that might produce sound & rescan for devices... which makes my keyboard & mouse freeze (I have to unplug and plug them back in). Overall this does not result in a great experience.

I think that the problem is elsewhere, since in this last version, there is not a roon user and the application has root rights.

I had to add the roon user to the uucp group for it to be able to use my USB DAC.
