Has anyone installed Sick Beard?

Unread post by habskilla » Tue Aug 03, 2010 12:47 am

I don't own a Synology. I'm trying to figure if this little box would work for me. So I'm wondering if anyone has installed Sick Beard? http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?t=63591

Yes. I was able to install from source using Git. It runs pretty well on my DS-209.

Can you please guide me trough the process, I'd like to install it on my DS-110j.
I have installed via ipkg: python python26 and py26-cheetah.
I have downloaded the zip file from here: http://github.com/midgetspy/Sick-Beard/archives/master.

I don't know what to do now though, can you give me a hand?

Created a guide for my DS-209: http://forum.synology.com/enu/viewtopic ... 15&t=27170. It´s running without issues here.

Hope this helps.

Installed SickBeard this week on my 1010, currently running smoothly. I had to follow numerous threads and discussions in order to compile the following:

1. Sickbeard is hosted by midgetspy on github. This allows for ease of installation, updates, and collaboration. Follow jmurre's post to install git, download SB, and launch: http://forum.synology.com/enu/viewtopic ... 15&t=27170 NOTE: On DSM 3 fw 1372 I did NOT have to install python25, py25-cheetah, py25-cherrypy, etc. See NOTE 1, below, as 'textutils' is needed for git pulls.

2. Once installed, you can launch SickBeard w/ a script by either following jmurre's route (add to the end of sab's start script) or roll you own. I found a script at http://code.google.com/p/sickbeard/issues/detail?id=513 (attribution to ainer.org) and placed in /usr/local/etc/rc.d for boot-time startup. Here's the case statement snippet from the script that I modified a little (haven't tested the 'update' case yet, perhaps someone can feedback?):

Code: Select all

case $1 in
start)
nohup /usr/bin/python /var/packages/sickbeard/SickBeard.py > $LOGDIR/$LOGFILE 2> $LOGDIR/$LOGFILE < /dev/null & 
;;
stop)
#Shutdown Sick Beard.
#echo "Stopping Sick Beard"
wget -q --user=$SBUSR --password=$SBPWD "http://$HOST:$PORT/home/shutdown/"
sleep 6s
;;
update)
cd /var/packages/sickbeard
/opt/bin/git pull > git_results.log
;;
*)
echo "Usage: $0 {start|stop|update}"
exit 1
;;
esac

Notes:
1. Updating SickBeard with git threw an error related to 'tr' missing. The is mentioned on this (http://sickbeard.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=234) thread w/o a resolution; the textutils package
(which contains 'tr') must be installed. After installation, SickBeard was easily pulled/updated via git. Run the following command: 'ipkg install textutils'

2. Creating download folders from the SickBeard interface may not result in directory/file permissions being set correctly for SB to process. I had to manually chmod all TV folders/files to '777'. Yes, sab also has a setting for completed downloads permissions which is also set to '777', but since SB creates the initial folders, it may not set correct permissions? I suggest you manually create SB folders first on the filesystem (Samba will default permissions to '777') and then point SB to them via the SB GUI.

3. I see 20 threads of sab & SB, each. This appears to be the default threading/listener setting (for Python?) and I haven't looked into configuration to decrease. There doesn't appear to be
any extra resource consumption, as the threads remain idle most of the time.

4. To do: Test installation of SB in a symlink to volume1/@appstore. I believe is the proper & clean way to install 3rd party apps? Right now SB is located in /var/packages/sickbeard. Feedback anyone?

I hope this guide helps save time and effort. SABnzbd and SickBeard are great OSS projects and couple well w/ an always-on device like a Synology NAS. Next stop is CouchPotato: http://couchpotatoapp.com/. :D

Lefty

@Lefty

Do you know if the process would be the same for a synology ds410j?

Hi guys,

thanks for all the support about how to install SB the right way. Installing this stuff on my NAS (DS110j) was my first step into the world of linux and I am proud I managed (with your help and tutorials). Acutally everything is working fine I just have a minor question:

Right now I have to SSH to the NAS and run "/var/packages/sab2/target/scripts/sabstart.sh" this line where I added jmurre last line to the script. After I run the sabstart SB runs and I can connect to the web interface. As soon as I close the SSH connection SickBeard also stops running (SABnzbd runs well all the time). What do I have to do in order to keep SB running all the time?

As I said I am quite new to all of this and asking you is kind of my last ressort, since I read basically everything google find on this topic.

Thanks in advance!

Just went searching for this again.

I found this link on what looks to be the French version of Synology's site.
http://www.nas-forum.com/forum/index.ph ... beard-spk/
And here's the direct link to download so people don't have to register.
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4BQKYBAM

Does anyone want to venture out and let everyone know how this worked/didn't work for them? I don't have the time or additional backups for my system to be down for a while, but I thought a lot of people would be interested in this.

I saw this SPK's also, but its not working with DSM 3.1 beta on my DS210j. I could install couch potato, sickbeard and sabnzb but the nzb's arent downloading.
I also couldnt upgrade the SickBeard and Couch Potato, since I dont have ipgk/bootstrap.
So basically You get the very old alpha versions of SickBeard and Couch Potato. :(

I wish someone would make spk with auto upgrade of SickBeard, Couch Potato, SabNZB, and simple to install.

Take care,

P.
