Description of Issue
Since the last update, my Roon NUC is broken to the point of uselessness. It’s on the network, I can SSH to the box from the devices that should be able to connect, I can see RoonServer running, I look at the ports locally, but it’s not LISTENing where I’d expect (of course not much is how I expect with fscking systemd). No firewalls running, nothing else changed other the than the Roon upgrade.
So I tried almost EVERYTHING. For two days. Updated all Linux software, verified all connectivity, updated both routers, checked for port forwarding and multicast support both in config and kernel support (I’m using low latency Linux) ran netcat to verify port access, moved /opt/Roonserver to /tmp/fscked, rebooted, went to reinstall the RoonServer, and…
There is no Linux Roon Server. It has “301 Moved Permanently” and no versions of the installer script can find it. There are posts suggesting the last version had serious problems, but there seems no way to fix if your target is Linux x64 RoonServer.
Are you Nucleus only now? I’ve installed some crap old software on the system so I have music again, but it’s even worse than the stability of recent Roon (which has frankly been poor for a while).
I need a stable server - all the pretty indexing in the world won’t fix an inability to play the music.
