Ok well maybe the DSD512 was a bit of a stretch…it did run for a few mins…but seems MUCH happier without it. Ill keep testing - but its working at least with 150,000 tracks library… seems its scanning so that could be the cause… using all 4 cores…so throttling that back to 2 and will see how it recovers after its done
Hi Rene…Its done scanning the tracks…but now it has some audio analysis going on with 4 cores flat out…once all that has settled down I think the DSD will be back to operable again.
I’m running this a small experiment to see just how light one can get linux without too much effort for anyone with little or no linux tuning capability.
I must say aside from the wifi drivers being flagged as not free…its been a doddle to install.
I rather would have this on a non wifi equipped mobo but its what I had to hand… its was running ROCK (as a MOCK) with no issues.
The only thing that would probably help right now as I removed the SSD that had ROCK on it…is instead of the 750GB HDD is to drop a small M.2 2240/60/80 PCIe card and run it up off that… so once I am happy… and the shops are open again (Chinese New year here) I will go and get one and see if I can’t make it run a bit snappier in the searches…its not too shabby right now tho.
@Dan_Knight had a power outage and when I powered up the Roon Server with DietPi AMD64 I had to do a full setup - like it lost the database … sign in to roon and tidal and no music store location… any thoughts? Roon Build is V1.4.310
It did seem to remember the Roon backups folder location I had internally setup in the Root folder.
The only thing I can think of is, in terms of DietPi’s end:
DietPi has a RAMdisk for all its settings and configurations. If the system is hard rebooted, the RAMdisk does not save to disk, resulting in the next boot reverting back to a previous state.
However, once the software is installed, DietPi will reboot the system. So any changes made during dietpi-software installs, should not be affected.
It may be that the Roon Server application did not save the database/settings correctly, maybe it also loads into RAM and saves on process termination, however, unsure, would need a Roon dev to verify.
