Just updated to latest version on my unraid, but it doesn't seem to be moving any files or checking for new releases. The log just sits on this.

I'm having similar issues. How do I go about downloading an older build for Mac OSX? I don't see an option anywhere on github.

Thanks

Having troubles renaming movies. Can anyone help me? Nod

Add.lib.con.renamer: failed changing permissions.


- darkscout - 2011-07-24 16:29

What are the permissions on the movie, the renamed movie and what user is couch potato running as?

Filled in 777 at permissions in sabnzbd, but not yet for those I downloaded. I forget the setting earlier. Can that be it? Can I check it otherwise?

Renaming fails, so permission on that is N/A, I guess.

No username/password in general in CP. In NZB's I used the general user in Ubuntu, not an admin one.

In a console/ssh terminal, just chmod your movies directory, ie. chmod 777 -R /path/to/sab/completed/movies

All -R does is recursive so all folder under your movies will be read/write/execute all (aka 777)

Thanks, it worked for /home/username/downloads but not for my external drive:

chmod: changing permissions of 'media/externaldrive': read-only file system

Confused

Well, the only way you would get a read-only file system error is if your externaldrive, which I am assuming is a external drive mount directory, is currently being mounted read only. You will have mount it with read/write.

I have an installation question.

I used the LaSi script to install couchpotato. When I try to run /etc/init.d/couchpotato start I get the following error:

start-stop-daemon: Unable to open pidfile '/var/run/couchpotato.pid' for writing

I can start couchpotato using sudo but not from the user (xbmc).

Can someone point me to what I'm doing wrong?

I'm using XBMC Live Dharma.


- darkscout - 2011-07-26 01:54

$10 says it's a permissions thing. When you run it with sudo you're running it as root. What does the log say?


- Mxxw - 2011-07-26 03:27

I agree its a permissions thing. Which log should I look in? I can see in the ubuntu boot.log it tries to start couchpotato, but there's no further information.


- darkscout - 2011-07-26 03:34

The couch potato log.
What error does it give when you try and start from the xbmc user? It should be pretty clear from that.

Check user you are trying to use to load couch potatoe

(vi,vim,pico or other text editor) /etc/init.d/couchpotatoe

Check the folder owner and group:

ls -l /path/to/folder/before/couchpotatoe
or
ls -ld /path/to/couchpotatoe

If the owner is root or another user other than the one you want in init.d, change it:

chown xbmc:xbmc -R /path/to/couchpotatoe

basicly that says change the owner to user xbmc and group to xbmc for everything in and including the couchpotatoe folder.
