Running Stretch 9.5

I seem to have multicore par2 running in a much simpler way, did I do something wrong?

I installed par2-tbb by simply putting the referenced deb lines within into sources.list from:
https : //launchpad . net/~jcfp/+archive/ubuntu/sab-addons

i.e., these lines:
deb http:// ppa .launchpad. net/jcfp/sab-addons/ubuntu xenial main
deb-src http:// ppa. launchpad. net/jcfp/sab-addons/ubuntu xenial main

and then
# apt-get install par2-tbb

SAB reports "Multicore par2" with a checkmark, and a test download/repair/unpack worked just fine.

Yes, correct: jcfp has added a few nice things to sab-addons: sabyenc, par2cmdline and par2cmdline-mt. So it's now easer than in 2015 (=date of FiPo). See https://launchpad.net/~jcfp/+archive/ubuntu/sab-addons

But what's more: the whole process is much easier than last year:

Code: Select all

apt-get install software-properties-common
add-apt-repository ppa:jcfp/ppa
apt-get install sabnzbdplus

Done. Including sabyenc (for high speed yenc decoding):

Code: Select all

# python -c "import sabyenc; print sabyenc.__version__ " 
3.3.1
Pure magic by @jcfp

Too bad it doesn't work for Debian so easily. Nice though for those on Ubuntu.
