Tried to install Linux version of RoonServer on Qnap TVS-471 running ubuntu 14.4.3 and got this error message: “the roon server installer did not complete successfully”.
If you scroll up the terminal window it will tell you why it failed.
This is what I get:
Checking to see if RoonServer can run on this machine
Checking for Binary Compatibility [ OK ] Checking for ALSA Libraries [ OK ] Checking for ffmpeg or avconv [ OK ] Checking for the mount.cifs command [ FAILED ] Testing ulimit -n 8192 [ OK ]
These issues must be addressed before RoonServer will run on this machine.
For more information on how to address this, see:
Have no idea what it means and what to do next…
Any chance to get a simple “Plug & Play” installation package?
The RoonServer installer did not complete successfully.

sudo apt-get install cifs-utils
will get you what you need.
Yep, after typing in the line that Rene posted, re-type
to re-install and you’re done. RoonServer will auto start and restart automatically should you ever need to reboot.
Thank you guys! It looks I passed the installation proses successfully but roon didn’t auto start… no sing of Roonserver running. Same result after rebooting. How do I run the program? Where do I find the exe file to run it?
Roonserver runs as a background process – there’s not much to see.
service roonserver status
Got it thank you
It is up and running
