Description Of Issue
This represents my last attempt to problem solve an irritating issue. After previously running Roon Core on a Windows Server OS for years without problem, I migrated to Euphony OS. I love it in every way except one - every 24 to 48 hours, the system running Core will hang. By “hang,” I mean, the computer is on, but it is not responsive, all network activity as designated by activity lights on the mainboard is off. The passively cooled case is quite warm after being in this state for a while.
In trouble shooting thus far, I have replaced every piece of hardware in the machine except the processor and hard discs (this includes an external linear power supply, the DC-ATX converter, the memory, and the mainboard. The exact behavior has persisted through all of these changes. I would add that the problem had previously occurred when using a high end active CPU cooler, before moving to the passively cooled case (the problem cannot be cooling).
I have reinstalled a fresh copy of Euphony using a clean, new downloaded image, and the problem persists. I temporarily went back to Windows Server 2012, and the system ran fine.
I have contacted Euphony support and provided logs. I am told that these do not provide any clues as to the cause. I was also told that it was suspected Roon was the problem.
I really like the Euphony OS and would rather not move to something else, but I can’t have an unstable machine running Roon Core. Therefore, I would like to see if anyone at Roon can offer any suggestions before I give up.
