  • Hi there

    I'm trying out Snakeoil to see if better (improved/different?) SQ than Windows 10 for Roon Bridge.

    Roon Core is on a Windows 10 machine which I'm not proposing to change.  That feeds various Roon end points, one in particular to my main system. End point is a Intel® Celeron® CPU J1900 with RAAT (Roon Bridge) installed under Windows 10 Pro.

    Wanting to change this Windows instance to Snakeoil.

    Have installed Snakeoil on a new SDD on the J1900 device, updated to  1.1.7 (Blind Testing U7)  and working just fine.  Accessing via browser via etc.

    However I'm unclear on install of Roon Bridge.

    From the Snakeoil Wiki I see:

    However in Roonlabs I see a different process.


    Confused. Undecided

    Also, just for testing, I try to mount a CIFS mount (to the Windows machine holding my music) in the format \\server\Music (with username and password) however I get an error message saying not possible in trial mode.  Or somesuch message.

    Appreciate any feedback on these two points (Roon Bridge and CIFS) please. Only testing things now.  Do I need to 'donate' to enable things?  Can I donate a small amount for a limited period (so I can test things properly)?

  • Hello,
    I can not install the firmware 1.1.7 by dragging and dropping. I always get the following error:


    *** ERROR *** Uploaded file missing, upload aborted?
    *** ERROR *** Uploaded file missing, upload aborted?

    What am I doing wrong, or can I install it manually?

  • Hi there

    New user trying to install Snake Oil OS.  Forgive me if this covered elsewhere (I did search).

    Getting "Kernel Panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x0000000b"

    Steps taken:

    - Using latest SnakeOil ISO i686-1.1.iso.
    - Loaded on 8gb flash drive with Rufus.
    - Ensure SATA AHCI mode is enabled (it was).
    - Using i7 HP Pavilion, boot to menu, choose SnakeOil GUI (also did SnakeOil Ram option).
    - Ends in Kernal Panic error as stated.  Machine locks up.

    Any ideas?

    Am trying to create SSD with SnakeOil OS on it using the i7 machine for configuring etc.  Once done I will transfer SSD over to headless ITX machine (currently used as Roon End Point using RAAT on Windows 10 Pro).  Aim is to establish if SQ better using SnakeOil OS as compared to Windows 10.

    Overall config:  Roon Core (on Windows 10 server) > ethernet > Mini ITX (Windows 10 with Roon RAAT) > USB > Metrum DAC > LDR Pre > Radford Valve > Tannoy Berkeley. 


    London, UK

    Just for completeness I tried the USB flashdrive in both a USB 2 and USB 3 slot.  The flashdrive itself is USB2.  Same kernel panic error.
