SABnzbd on Raspberry Pi (Raspbian-Buster) freezes

Post by usenet4me »

Hello,

I hope I'm in the right category for my problem.

First of all I want to thank all contributors for this awesome tool!

Yesterday I installed a fresh raspbian buster on a SDCard and afterwards SABnzbd using:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install sabnzbdplus
After setting everything up I installed unrar, attached and mounted a USB-HDD and everything seemed to work.
After some time of downloading and while extracting one of the download, the webinterface is not reachable, disk amount doesn't change (no downloads running) but the raspberry still is online and reachable via SSH.

Any idea what's wrong here?
If aou need further information please let me know , but consider to help a LinuxNoob (me).

Thanks a lot for your help.

What version of SABnzbd is shown as running in the first page of the Config?
If this is 3.1.0Beta1, you should change to the nobeta's version of the package since you are running a testing-version. We are aware there is some problem with 3.1.0Beta1, but we don't know what it is.

Code: Select all

Raspbian is Debian based, and the SABnzbd 3 PPA for Ubuntu does not work anymore on Debian. See the Note in viewtopic.php?f=16&t=9844

Thanks for the link. Well, bad luck for me not having ubuntu but Debian/Raspbian as OS on my Pi.

I'll go with the first solution from your link:

Create a backport by rebuilding the source package from the Ubuntu PPA. The Debian wiki has instructions detailing how to pull that off, do apply some common sense though. This method avoids installing from repositories not native to your system, but needs to be done by hand for every update. On the upside, the PPA-provided packages are designed to work with older OS releases, so you typically won't need to make changes to the packaging to get your backport to work if you work with source packages from the closest equivalent Ubuntu release. For jessie (8.x) that's trusty/14.04; for stretch (9.x) go with xenial/16.04; for buster (10.x) go with bionic/18.04; any newer Debian (bullseye/testing/unstable), try focal/20.04.

Following the instructions in the above linked wiki I ran into an error

Code: Select all

[email protected]:~ $ sudo add-apt-repository --enable-source ppa:pogo-dev/stable
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 95, in <module>

What can I do?

I moved your topic to the Ubuntu / Debian forum ... in the hope that guru @jcfp has a look at it.

Is the new version worth the effort of updating?
Does the new version solve my problems with a freezing Pi?
