Description Of Issue
After upgrading today I get an Error message “Could not compile valapha shader. Fragment shader failed to compile with the following error:" This is followed by 44 errors … and the Roon program will not start.
Thank you for providing that information, I have forwarded to our technical team for further investigation. I will let you know once I have more information to share, thanks in advance for your patience here!
We had a few friends staying over the weekend so in order to get things working I deleted Roon from my laptop and then ran Roon server instead. It sounds like the graphics card on this old laptop is the issue based on initial comments. Since I don’t use the laptop as a control point I was able to side step the issue.
I loaded Roon onto this low spec laptop just to trial it. I was so impressed I went with a years licence. My long term plan was to upgrade my QNAP to a 64bit versions with SSD card for Roon QPKG and FLAC files on HDD. I intended to get the lifetime membership but following price increase ??? Unsure.
So to cut a long story short I’m not expecting this laptop to excel running Roon, and I do think its causing many of my problems controlling my DSM with the remote control. For example other than pause I’m unable to skip forward and backward with tracks in the queue via the remote. I only have control using either phone or iPad as a control point. Maybe that’s another topic and subject for the forum?
Glad to hear that RoonServer is working as expected!
Just to clarify - you are using the actual DSM remote that came with the unit or your iPad/phone in this case? Can you let me know the exact local time + date in your country when this behavior next occurs? I wonder if diagnostics reveal any further information.
I wanted to reach out to you because we’ve recently released Roon 1.7 (Build 511) which includes some changes for AMD cards in Roon. These changes may have helped with the “valapha shader” issues you were having previously. If you want, you can give the new build a try and let us know how it goes!
