Similar to couchpotato, this needs python2-lxml as a dependency.

Looks like we're back to the python/python2/python3 shebang hell. This package, as is, will not run correctly when invoked with systemctl because it has a bare /usr/bin/env python shebang, which defaults to python3. Changing the shebang to python2 works. Is this just an artifact on my system? (I have left the default /usr/lib/python symlink to python3 alone, but my user and root PATHs include a priority directory where python links to python2...systemd doesn't pick either of these PATHs up, so it defaults to python==python3).

[If this is for ArchLinuxArm]
I had to downgrade to the Version 1fb031ff (10/12/2014, 10:41:56 AM) after running into some issues with renaming and moving files. Unfortunately, I lost the logs, but figured that I would let you know.

If you get this error: {"success": false, "error": "Failed returning results"}

1. Head on over to /opt/couchpotato/
2. Type: find . -type f -name "*.pyc" -exec rm -f {} \;
3. git reset --hard

/opt/couchpotato/.git/config needed to have the "url" line under the [remote "origin"] section changed to this:

instead of the build directory. Mine was set to /tmp and every time Couchpotato tried to update it would fail.

brando56894 commented on 2014-04-28 18:42

Whenever Couchpotato tries to update I get this error:

fatal: '/tmp/yaourt-tmp-bran/aur-couchpotato-git/CouchPotatoServer' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

Maybe it should be placed in a permanent directory, such as in /var or /opt?

It would be nice to add to the service file, in the [Service] section:

Changing the kill signal will cause "systemctl stop couchpotato" to not exit with fail status (1).
Adding the Restart directive will allow it to restart after an in-app update (or if user runs the restart command from inside CouchPotato).
