There appears to be some issues getting the latest version of JRiver 22 starting in Snakeoil OS. If you intent to use Snakeoil OS as a platform to try JRiver 22, probably wise to hold off for now until I can figure out the issue (may not be able to figure this out as JRiver is closed source and not really possible to debug).

JRiver 21 still works. So far, JRiver 22 don't work 
  • with stock version of Snakeoil 0.1.5 64 bits
  • with stock version of Snakeoil 1.0.0-alpha 64 bits
Will update this as I can, but if I cannot find the cause of the crash, JRiver 22 will be dropped from 1.0.0 when it's released.

Please comment below if anybody of you managed to get JRiver 22 to run under any edition of Snakeoil OS.

Finally figured out why JRiver 22 isn't working.

Installing and running 22 will work if you install from Snakeoil 0.9.1 ISO and later.

For folks who are already using SnakeoilOS, you'd need to SSH to the machine, and run the following shell commands (You'd need an Internet connection).

If you're running 64 bit SnakeoilOS:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xdg-utils
sudo apt-get purge tightvncserver
wget https://bintray.com/tigervnc/stable/download_file?file_path=tigervnc-1.8.0.x86_64.tar.gz -O /tmp/tigervnc-1.8.0.x86_64.tar.gz
sudo tar -xzf /tmp/tigervnc-1.8.0.x86_64.tar.gz -C / --strip-components=1
rm /tmp/tigervnc-1.8.0.x86_64.tar.gz -f


If you're running 32 bit SnakeoilOS:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install xdg-utils
sudo apt-get purge tightvncserver
wget https://bintray.com/tigervnc/stable/download_file?file_path=tigervnc-1.8.0.i386.tar.gz -O /tmp/tigervnc-1.8.0.i386.tar.gz
sudo tar -xzf /tmp/tigervnc-1.8.0.i386.tar.gz -C / --strip-components=1
rm /tmp/tigervnc-1.8.0.i386.tar.gz -f

Interesting, that beta build worked for me. See that "OK" button in there? What happens when you click it?

I'd test 21 builds later tonight to see how it goes.

This machine has a working Internet connection?

What you can try is in VNC, right click with the mouse button and select "Open A Terminal" option. a new terminal window should pop up. Type mediacenter22 (I think) in the prompt and see if you get any error messages in that terminal window..

I've found a bug as to why the status says the server isn't starting, I'd fix that in the next RC release. But the blackscreen is still a weird issue.

From that VNC terminal, can you run the following (and then take picture of the output):
Code:
xrandr


Also, copy MediaCenter-22.0.111-5-amd64.deb to the shared music folder. Then run this:
Code:
md5sum /media/music/MediaCenter-22.0.111-5-amd64.deb


So far I couldn't re-create this issue, but will try later this week and let you know what I find. Right now I gotta fix some other issues on something non-snakeoil related so probably can't do much today.

Also, in the meantime, any other people have success with this, or have similar or other issues?

Everything seems to check out. Can you drag the JRiver deb file into the install window and then take a screenshot? I would like to see if it installs OK or have any errors. If everything works, it should look similar to this:
