I am having trouble installing Roon on my Vortexbox. I have loaded cifs-utils and ffmpeg but when I try and install Roon it starts to unpack but errors out. The following is the error message. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am a total noob when it comes to Linux.
Do you want to install RoonServer on this machine? [Y/n] y
Downloading RoonServer_linuxx64.tar.bz2 to /tmp/tmp.sLSp9paVwY/RoonServer_linuxx64.tar.bz2
Unpacking RoonServer_linuxx64.tar.bz2…tar (child): lbzip2: Cannot exec: No such file or directory

“Confusing” is an understatement! I definitely think you are correct regarding the missing bzip2 file. What is also confusing is the error message lists lbzip2. I have tried to install bzip2 but with no success. I feel that I’m close albeit getting there through blind luck.
I finally downloaded the correct version of lbzip2 only to find that I cant compile it because I don’t have a C Compiler on this system. Would you know where to find a ready compiled program that will run on Fedora?
