Assistance needed: Roon core on Linux Ubuntu Studio


Recommended Posts

For the last several weeks, Roon keeps constantly scanning my music files stored on a Synology NAS - blue spinning circle in the top right menu section of Roon just continuously spins.

 

Roon core resides on my Ubuntu Studio (20.04) server.

 

I posted something on the Roon forum and was directed to this fix which directs me to this update page.  I tried to update kernel to 5.6.10 but I seem to be stuck on 5.4.0-53-lowlatency. 
 

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If you are connecting to your Synology DiskStation via CIFS, you might try an NFS share instead. I also had severe problems with Roon Build 667, and switching to NFS solved them for me.

Good luck!


Thanks!

 

It took several tries but got NAS mounted as NFS and Roon pointed to it. Hopefully this solves the issue. Fingers crossed.

 

Edit: Roon finished importing all my file and now NO spinning blue circle!!!

One change is that I had to add a line to /etc/fstab file so that my Synology NAS would mount upon boot up, otherwise I had to issue the "mount" command on every restart.

 

Here is the line I added:

 

192.168.0.XX:/volume1/Music_Folder /mnt nfs defaults 0 0 (where XX=NAS IP address)
