There are an 0.7.17RC1 with RAR 5.01 support. Is it possible to get that package? Eg. as a second beta AUR package if u think it isn't stable enough?

Here is a pkgbuild with using /var/lib and /usr/lib rather than /opt. It also removes the call that stops the service on upgrade as that is not considered a good practice in PKGBUILDS.

/var/lib/sabnzbd/ sounds like an excellent suggestion for the default installation location of sabnzbd.ini. And with the /etc/sabnzbd.conf file, the user could always change it to another location if desired.

I second that suggestion. I've been running it that way for some time (but I used /opt/sabnzbd/config/sabnzbd.ini). It would be nice not to have to change the permissions back on each upgrade.

I'd suggest putting the config in /var/lib (ie: CONFIG_FILE="/var/lib/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini") and then putting everything else under /usr/lib/sabnzbd. You could add some symlinks to /usr/bin and /etc/sabnzbd.ini.

By the way, if you set the location of the sabnzbd.ini file, then sabnzbd will also create the admin/ and logs/ directories in the same location, and those are the only files and directories that need to be writeable.

Which means that you can install all the other sabnzbd program files in a more standardized location than /opt/sabnzbd/ , like /usr/bin/ and /usr/lib/sabnzbd/

How about changing the systemd unit file to include a configurable location for the sabnzbd.ini file? Keeping it in /opt/sabnzbd/ is not the best idea.

With the unit file linked above, the user would create an /etc/sabnzbd.conf
file with contents such as:


or perhaps something in their own user directory if they have overridden the
User=sabnzbd with another user by creating the path/file:

It's already an optional dependency as it should be.

My downloads recently stopped working. Turns out it was because I only had ssl sources configured, and you now need python2-pyopenssl installed for that to work. Can that be added as a dependency?

This doesn't work for me, either. It starts up, but then does nothing with no indication of what is wrong.
