How to enable\install multicore par2 on Mint 14?(solved)

Postby semel » July 16th, 2013, 10:29 am

I've just recently migrated to mint 14 and when I installed the latest version of sabnzbd from Ubuntu PPA Repository I noticed that multicore option is disabled\greyed out.

Could somebody help a noob ;) on how to deal with this minor issue? If it is possible at all

It is not just for sabnzbd that I need multicore par2. I have a script that would make raring\paring releases easier, kind of automode, and I would love to speed up par2 creation.

With regards,

PS OK, I've found this mini guide and followed its instructions http://digiex.net/guides-reviews/guides ... linux.html
everything worked like a charm.
Now when I create par2 files all my cores are 99-100% utilized and although sab still does have multicore option greyed out in switches it uses all cores during reapir process

SABnzbd isn't aware that you replaced the par2cmdline program.
It won't be on a Linux system, only on the ready-made packages for OSX and Windows.

After several days of using it I have to say that it doesn't work like a charm ,sadly. When I checked logs I saw errors related to these other two files that allows par2 to run in multithreaded mode and some pars were corrupted

I had to switch tosingle core par2. Maybe if I compiled multithreaded par2 from the scrath it would have worked fine but I didn't manage to do it;(
