Number of Tracks in Library


Description of Issue

Takes core long time to load, 3-4 minutes. Within 15 seconds of the appearance of the home page, the Roon app quits. When I load core on laptop PC, it works fine, and I am able to use the Mac as a control point. Tried reinstalling several times without success, although I suspect some of the system files are being reused since it does not ask me to reconfigure library and streaming services.

There are instructions about doing a clean install of roon on your Mac. Things like renaming or deleting the roon subdirectory in the library directory etc. That might help.
Me, after many years of fighting to get Roon stable on the mac, I gave up and switched to a sonictransport as the core and mac, ipad, iphone as control points. All is stable for me now. 210,000 tracks in my library.

Fixed it! Used CleanMyMac to do complete uninstall, and then reinstalled succesfully.
