install par2cmdline-turbo on Truenas Core 13.0-U6.1

Post by mysticpete »

Hi all

Has anyone worked out how to install this package without it deleting your existing sabnzbd package or rc.d/sabnzbd startup script?

Thanks in advance

no not right now, just setting up a linux vm to test out a docker setup.

Currently installed in a jail

OK, VM. So a full Linux VM, and then SABnzbd inside that?

I suppose you can logon to that Linux VM?

If so, it should be easy: see https://sabnzbd.org/wiki/installation/par2cmdline-turbo

On my Ubuntu Linux:

Code: Select all

sander@brixit:~$ par2 --version
par2cmdline-turbo version 1.1.0

can it be installed in a jail without breaking the existing sabnzbd package?

I don't know anything about jails. But I assume it does NOT check CRC values of binaries? So then you should be OK

Furthermore: the SABnzbd package on Linux does NOT include par2. So par is always a separate binary, which you should install at OS level. SABnzbd does not care which par2 binary you have installed, as long as it's recent enough.

I tried installing it in the jail but it deletes the existing sabnzbd package so breaking the jail, I can only assume that it sees the main program as a dependency and removes it?

Ok thanks, I'll try it in my VM once I have it setup properly.
