Description of Issue

After updating my DSM on synology it says that Roon package version is not compatible with DSM?
Anyone experienced this or know what to do?

The DSM is v.7.1- 42661

You did not say which model of Synology you are using. Be aware that the Synology package will not work on all Synology NAS units due to hardware limitations. The package will not install on under powered machines. Since we don’t know which NAS you are using, a guess would be that it’s not up to the minimum spec.

Use the Docker version. There is a long thread here on the forum about how to do that- it’s pretty easy, I did it and it works like a charm on my DS218+

918+ So it’s powerful enough.

Hi Andy

I can’t seem to find the thread.
I’m not the greatest IT geek but if there is a step-by-step guide I’ll give it a try :sweat_smile::sweat_smile:

By updating from DSM6 to DSM7 you have to install the Roon package specific for DSM7 (zie The Roon DSM6 package is not working under DSM7. Read the posts about the DSM7 package from crieke on this forum.

This is old and not current guidance. The build for DSM 7 is now battle-tested. @Alfred_van_Hoorn has the right guidance.

Well my post and link is not redundant but if you mean the package not working then yes, that I believe is fixed. I would still recommend the docker though.

Roon actually runs more slowly in Docker (as does most software) and takes more RAM. I would always recommend the native package to people first, and only run in Docker as a last resort.


I got it up and running(dsm7 package) thanks guys.
