Trouble unpacking downloaded tar files

Post by mbinary »

Hi all,

Recently added a new source for downloads and a lot of what is being downloaded is single-tar files. Usually, SABnzbd has no problems unpacking all of these files and ensuring they're in the right format for Sonarr/Radarr to pick up, but in this instance, it doesn't seem to be willing to unpack them.

I'm currently running on a Synology NAS, if that helps. Sanitized logs as follows, no error logs:

Code: Select all

As you can see, it recognizes the tar file, then does....nothing. I'm able to manually un-tar the file and the contents are perfectly proper.

We don't support unpacking tar-files from SABnzbd, it's just not common enough on usenet..

Ah, okay. Do you know if there's possibly a way to add in a quick bash script at the end to detect a tar file and then run an un-tar function?

Of course, you can write a post-processing script: https://sabnzbd.org/wiki/scripts/post-p ... ng-scripts
It can use env-variable SAB_COMPLETE_DIR or the commandline parameter.
