I am aware of the problem. You can delete first /opt/RoonServer rm -rf /opt/RoonServer before updating (this will not delete the library that is in /var/roon) But adding this to PKGBUILD would be not nice. Probably you can first remove roonserver and after install it. Moreover, this is not happening always. Maybe Roonserver will update some way, if you select update from smartphone/tablet application.

So in some cases upgrading this package will fail due to existing files. Will probably want some special handling in PKGBUILD for this.

I just checked and it is working fine with archlinux updated to now. dotnet-runtime and mono are not dependencies of Roon.

There is in some cases a bug (not yet fixed upstream. there is a long discussion in Roon forums) due to which you must restart it after boot with systemctl restart roonserver to make it work.

P.S A clarification: roon is using mono in /opt/RoonServer/RoonMono/ provided by the package.

This is broken after the release of the latest dotnet/mono.

I got this to work by downgrading dotnet-runtime and dotnet-host to version 2.0.7-1 from 2.1.0-3. I also downgraded mono from 5.12.0-260 to 5.12.0-226.

I would like to get to the bottom of this. Is it a Roon issue with compatibility of newer mono/dotnet or is it a buggery in the packaging at Arch Linux??

Remember that sometime Roon is updating without changing version number.
Please from time to time reinstall it to have the last build

I have just updated the package to 1.3 (it was out yesterday).
Since the original tar package has not a version number, if by chance this is still 1.2, you can update easily reinstalling.
