See Both sickrage projects are mentioned there.

About the package name: is not maintained by one developer and they may change the project name later on.

PS. I would make such a package myself, but last week I switched to Sonarr, an unrelated project which performs a similar function

If you like you could make a new AUR package yourself, it's quite easy. see;
for details

If you or anyone else would like to take over this package also, I'll drop it (I probably won't be actively keeping an eye on new releases anymore)

Hi tvale, I did a little research, and I've found that the linked version of sickrage does not appear to be an official continuation/move of the "original" sickrage, so I believe it would make more sense to make a new AUR package for it (for example, "sickrage-<developer>")

- the website appears to be much older than
- glancing at a github commit chart suggests they only start to differ since last november or so, suggesting a move, however;
- and their github pages both explicitly state that they have not moved

Hi. Thanks for the package! Will you consider changing to instead?

user services run as the user they're started from, for example, i'd use;
$ systemctl --user enable sickrage
to enable it, and sickrage will be started under my user when i log in (as opposed to running as a system-wide service)

for more information about systemd user services

also worth noting that one reason i use user services is because i have more than one user on my machine that uses sickrage
having sickrage running as a user service means that all of its configuration is also stored in the corresponding users' home folder, so you can have multiple non-conflicting instances of sickrage running on the same machine this way

sickrage-user.service has no "User=%u" line. That means the service runs as root?

Note: Sickrage will copy the file permissions of the parent folder when creating a download file or folder. So, you can run 'chmod 770 ...' or chmod 777 ...' to open up file access to other users.

Sorry about that, I personally use the user service to run sickrage as my own user.

The post install script is not something i wrote or use, but I at least left it alone incase there are others who do.

The line
getent passwd ${SB_USER} > /dev/null || useradd -g ${SB_USER} -d /opt/sickrage -s /bin/false -r ${SB_USER} > /dev/null

should be
getent passwd ${SB_USER} > /dev/null || useradd -U -d /opt/sickrage -s /bin/false -r ${SB_USER} > /dev/null

That will create a group with the same GID as the users UID

install file did not create a user for me. If you run the script separately, with >/dev/null redirection you will see the error: useradd: group 'sickrage' does not exist

I'm going to put this package down, and see if anyone else wants to pick it up, for now.
