HOWTO: SABnzbd on Debian on Raspi

Postby sander » June 18th, 2012, 2:45 pm

I just got a Raspberry Pi from a friend. Here's how I installed SABnzbd on the Raspi running Debian.

The Raspi is running an alpha version of Debian Wheezy. See http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... =50&t=8071

Steps:


Add a contrib line to /etc/apt/sources.list like this:

Code: Select all
deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy main non-free
deb http://http.debian.net/debian wheezy contrib


Then:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sabnzbdplus


If your installing locally, you can type

Code: Select all
sabnzbdplus


and the wizard will startup in your webbrowser. FIll it out as usual.

If your installing remotely, there are two ways to go on:
1) type "sabnzbdplus", wait a minute or so, press CTRL-C, edit ~/.sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini (with vi) and change the first occurence of host to "host = 0.0.0.0". Then start "sabnzbdplus" again, access it with your local webbrowser to the remote Raspi and fill out the missing parameters. You have to know your way in SABnzbd to do this.

or:
2) make sure you log in into the Raspi like this:

Code: Select all
ssh -X pi@192.168.1.50


... with 192.168.1.50 the IP address of my Raspi. The "-X" will make the SSH session X-enabled.

Then do this:

Code: Select all
midori &
sabnzbdplus


The first command will start webbrowser midori on your local machine, the second command will start SABnzbd's wizard ... in your midori. So it will be easy to fill out the wizard.
