Working on Karmic 9.10 32bit

Issues
post-processing scripts - Fails 'Exit(-1) Cannot run script /media/Drobo/asrock330htbd/sabnzbd/scripts/xbmc-update-library.sh (More)'

I basically have a .sh script which sends commands to update 'XBMC Video Library' on completed downloads for Movies and TV categories.  The script works on 0.4.12, I also installed 'python-dbus' and 'dbus' packages, check permissions on the .sh file.

Other than that all is working.

Need more info than this, try the latest release (0.5.0 final), check the log and the full output under "(More)". To eliminate your script as a cause of trouble, do some small test download with /usr/share/doc/sabnzbdplus/examples/Sample-PostProc.sh as the postproc script (released with the program, doesn't do anything but print its own arguments).

Tested 'Sample-PostProc.sh' - Output OK, so the issue is my .sh.

[some stuff removed: see forum rules]

Started as /media/Drobo/asrock330htbd/sabnzbd/scripts/Sample-PostProc.sh

The first parameter (result-dir)  = /media/Drobo/downloads/complete/TV/How I Met Your Ubuntu iso
The second parameter (nzb-name)   = How I Met Your Ubuntu iso.nzb
The third parameter (nice name)   = How I Met Your Ubuntu iso
The fourth parameter (newzbin-id) = 1234567890
The fifth parameter (category)    = tv
The sixth parameter (group)       = alt.binaries.ubuntu-isos
The seventh parameter (status)    = 0

No shebang? Like the first line of the sample script, #!/bin/sh ?

modified my .sh

#!/bin/sh
/usr/bin/xbmc-send -a "UpdateLibrary(video)"
/usr/bin/xbmc-send -a "CleanLibrary(video)"

Thanks, SABnzbd is now processing my script.

Great work jcfp!

I got sabnzbnd running the "official" way by adding it using the ubuntu UI (0.4.12 I think it is). Adding your ppa should then work without any problems? Is there anything I have to do about my configuration when stepping from 0.4 to 0.5 or is this handled by SAB and the package manager? I only run SAB as a server from a dedicated SAB user...
Cheers!

Should just work. Configuration survives, both program and init.d-related. Obviously, the normal release notes apply here too (i.e., queue and history is lost when going from 0.4.x to 0.5 so finish any existing queue first); restarting the program is needed (but probably happens automatically if you run from init), and some users might run into minor differences in the program's behavior, like the script handling issue of 'toker'.

Sounds great, I'll give it a try as soon as my downloads are finished.  ;D

EDIT: Worked without a hitch, just as you said! THANK YOU!

echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/jcfp/ppa/ubuntu $(lsb_release -c -s) main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list

Gives me "illegal variable name" using Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic.  :'(

No idea. Copy/paste error? Or did you make some fancy changes in the wrong places (like /etc/lsb-release) on your system?

Hiya,
I have a technical question. All those who are familiar with Ubuntu will know this, but I am a complete noob when it comes to Ubuntu. Well, actually, if I could see what I was doing ( as I can on my laptop that is running 9.10 nicely, it would probably be easier. Anyhow, I bought one of those Sheevaplugs, that runs Ubuntu 9.04. I have access to it via SSH, and updated the libraries etc. So far so good. Are the steps I need to follow to install sabnzbd+ the same ones as in the first post of this thread ?  ???

And how do I set sabnzbd up to read my RSS feeds etc. via command line inputs ?  :-\

Anyone have a tutorial on this ? Basically, I want it to continuously check my feeds, and grab what it finds onto my USB stick. From there, I can then copy it over to my server .....

Hope you can help me out .....

Cheers

hello

i'm experiencing big troubles with sabnzbd during last month. (almost 5 month w/o problems on INTEL)
sab seems very unstable for me when im downloading big files (many rars) (on AMD sempron)

it always stops randomly after some time of downloading (15 min - 3 hours) leaving this:

Fatal Python error: Inconsistent interned string state. Aborted

i'm using SABnzbd+ 0.5.0

I tried to remove and install python's and sab's components with no successs. Worst of all i did complete fresh install from Hardy to Lucid again with no success.

i'm lost ! :(

This smells like hardware error, especially if you tried different Ubuntu releases. Try memtest86 (it's on the live-cd, run it from there).
