If you already have the dependencies, then upgrading shouldn't be too big of a deal. At most you'll just get the source build, untar it, and unzip cherrypy.zip. Done.

Yeah, not so much.


freenas:/home/sabuser# su - sabuser -c "/home/sabuser/SABnzbd-0.6.0/SABnzbd.py -d -f /home/sabuser/sabnzbd_config/sabnzbd.ini"
/home/sabuser/SABnzbd-0.6.0/SABnzbd.py: not found

it's like what the gently caress, that file is RIGHT THERE. I have no idea what is happening here. I can touch the file, I can chmod the file, I can't run the file.

Try running SABnzbd.py via python. Eg

su - sabuser -c "/path/to/python /home/sabuser/SABnzbd-0.6.0/SABnzbd.py -d -f /home/sabuser/sabnzbd_config/sabnzbd.ini"

yeah the problem is that on a FreeNAS, at least the way my ignorant self set it up perhaps, it reads the #/usr/bin/python at the head of SABnzbd.py and goes from there. Python can't be found, not the file in question.

I'm pretty sure this means I did things wrong when installing python but that's where pkg_add dumps the files and I am not clued in enough to know where to put things (not to mention the practical reasons why) and forget where things have gone. It's kind of a lovely error for FreeBSD to imply that it can't find SABnzbd.py when it meant it can't find python at the path in line1 of SABnzbd.py but hey.

if I wasn't a typo machine, that is what I would have said before.

the end result is that #!/usr/local/bin/python is correct for my particular FreeNAS installation, the default that's in the first line of the file does not work and produces a confusing error message for the barely unix-literate like myself.

Mine basically shat the bed when I tried to do it on FreeNAS. Luckily my CP only had 5 things in it.

protip for CPS, it runs on port 5050, not 5000. So you can keep both running while you make CPS work and your list doesn't disappear.

Where does Headphones get its artist information from? I typed in an artist that is at least popular enough to have a song on the radio and I got no results.

MusicBrainz.

So search there first, and if not add whoever you're looking for to MusicBrainz and do it right otherwise some goddamn moderator who doesn't speak English very well will try to school you on the proper way to do it even if you have the goddamn CD sitting in front of you and you're typing it all in the boxes verbatim.

Similarly, what happens if the artist is found, but there are no albums? I can click on the name in Headphones, and it takes me to their page which has albums, but Headphones doesn't show any.

I just looked and I don't see the import from FreeDB thing any more.

Your best bet is to copy everything you can from their amazon page if whatever you're looking for is for sale through them. Looks like you gotta do it all the hard way, which is sorta better since doing the half-assed FreeDB way sorta sucked.

Setting up a spotweb on my Nas4Free server was actually not so tough.

I don't recommend the average person do it, you do mostly need to know what you're doing. But it's totally possible at least so far for me. Works with the built-in lighttpd, just add mysql and get the right php packages and you're off.

ETA: I changed my mind. Is there a way to automatically have it retrieve new stuff? I don't want to click the button, I'd rather it just update once an hour or so...

So far it hasn't actually run properly, but it may be because of an aborted attempt. Still working things out I guess.

Is there any way to change the way the categories are displayed with Spotweb? Like, I don't want the pink or green stuff AT ALL, and I'd honestly rather have some of the rest of the stuff segregated.

I'd read the documentation, but a good lot of the stuff about customization seems to not be in English and that leaves me hosed. I'm not sure spotweb is for everyone.

I personally dislike the dutch thing, a lot. It makes the comments portion a bit useless, at least right now. The way the results are filed with mixed content makes it tough to browse too. Like "HD" should not be a main category, it should be a subcategory and that's just unfortunate. Plus I want to filter out any non-English results by default, so maybe newznab is the way to go anyway.

For anyone trying to get Newznab running on a nas4free box, here's the URL rewrite rules you need to put in the webserver additional config options:

Since it doesn't use apache, the .htaccess it comes with is useless, but you can put those rewrite rules in the base config for the webserver and it all works out. (at least so far).

And it seems like it would be painfully easy to poison this system.

If spots had digital signatures it would only take the teensiest websites to keep track of spot contributors users have added to their whitelists and blacklists.

And the obvious thing nobody will really admit, is that if it's easy for anyone with $10 to sign up here, it ain't like whatever system that shows up in the future will be unable to be infiltrated by a guy who is making money from the RIAA/MPAA/whoeverthefuckispayingtoscrewwithTV. If a guy is profiting, or worse yet a company of guys, then it'll be able to be infiltrated, poisoned and ultimately require an entirely different set of hurdles to come up with a sanitized solution if one is declared to be The Best way of doing it.

newznab is really the only way to do it right, since it only does what's necessary and that's scan a group and we all just hope that things that get posted are labeled correctly same as it's been in usenet before these indexers came around to make the lazy and "bad with computar" people able to do it and draw maybe a bit too much attention to the whole thing.

Meanwhile, does spotweb rely on the spotweb website to exist to keep an install running? As long as people post to the usenet group that has all the spot info it should be fine right? I'll be a bit annoyed if I just set this thing up only to see the whole thing whoosh away the same day I got it worked out.

On Saturday I thought "I wonder what ever happened to that Mylar program, the one that was supposed to be Sickbeard/Headphones for comics". So I ran it.

In any case, it's progressing quite nicely, however major features are still missing, such as ability to recognise an existing set of comics, so it's something you might want to keep in mind for the future.

If I move the raw files over then I have to manually split it up into 18 500GB chunks, whereas my thought was with the archive I could just dump it into one enormous archive.

But that won't really work because I don't have 9TB of space to store archives while they're being built. My problem is how do I easily move all 9TB onto all those drives with as little manual intervention as possible. Being able to verify integrity and also repair would be an added benefit as well. But the more I think about this isn't the right way to go about it.

The best way is to get an external drive case, put all the drives in and you've got a backup forever. mostly. Even better if you just do it the smart way and realize that you should be backing up your raid in the first place and get a set of 4x2TB drives in a 4 drive case (nothing special, $100 or so) and just use it as a JBOD to offload your array and do the backups monthly at worst.

Your biggest problem is that a drive will die, leaving you with way more than pars can fix the way you're talking unless you do them in 400gb chunks with 100gb worth of pars, dumping the rars straight to the new drive (presumably with an external drive dock or something) and then running the par creation on the new drive too. This all seems messy.

This is not an 'as little manual intervention as possible' scenario, unless you're willing to spend money on making it happen that way.

I'm not sure when I used it last, but the VIP only expired 3 weeks ago. I've been in the middle of a move and just got my server turned on this weekend, went to go re-up the VIP for another year and for whatever reason my account was locked out. Very weird.

other than being faster (a non-issue for me since it's on a nas4free server sitting in the corner that only does usenet and holds my raid, basically) what's the advantages of Sonarr over Sickbeard?

so I just wrecked my NAS and started over this weekend with Sonarr instead of Sickbeard.

How do you get the failure handling to actually work? I've got a thing that failed, and it just says

Intermediate Download path inside drone factory, Skipping.

Non-sample file detected: [/storage/etc-RARBG.1/1106.mkv]

so it fails, but it doesn't actually try harder to find something. It knows it failed, but it's not doing anything about it. I can fix it manually, but I thought this was one of the things Sonarr was supposed to handle that made it better for me than Sickbeard.

That is exactly what I have. I don't have a clue (and neither does Sonarr I guess) why that one particular download wasn't working out. Other failed downloads are retrying with different ones just fine.
