Ok if I tell you what theyre for, you can figure out what they should be :p

prefix="/opt" <- Root of the directory where ipkg installs apps
PATH=${prefix}/bin:${prefix}/sbin:/sbin:/bin:/us/sbin:/us/bin <- the possible paths to the app/script in question
NAME=nzbget <- the name of the app/script we want to run
DAEMON=${prefix}/bin/${NAME} <- this should end up being the fullpath to the app/script (/opt/bin/nzbget)
DAEMON_OPTS="-c ${prefix}/etc/nzbget.conf" <- fullpath to the nzbget.conf file


I think Im going to look into how the post processing scripts can suspend downloading and try to write a download speed manager. Being on VM, I get capped hard if I download in "peak" hours. So having a way to control NZBGet would be great :)


Ive made an adjustment, and now I get this,

root@DOCUTORRENT:/opt/etc/init.d# sh S81nzbget
Starting Service: nzbget
*** NZBGet post-process script ***
This script is supposed to be called from nzbget (0.7.0 or later).
root@DOCUTORRENT:/opt/etc/init.d#

Honestly youre getting some weird sh*t to happen.
The script I wrote doesnt do anything with the post processing scripts :s

Try calling: S81nzbget stop

I just cant believe that your setup is that different from mine :s

(On that note, my Linkstation is being RMAd for an intermittent failure :/)

Is it going back to BroadbandBuyer?  Hopefully youll get a nice shiny new revision!

I really dont know whats going on with my scripts. Ive edited the paths to point to the right places.
I have to type "sh" before the script, and it complains about postprocessing.

It was a bit of a mission sorting out the RMA. BBB werent interested and dumped me straight off onto Buffalo. After a short phone call with the Buffalo support line Buffalo have approved the RMA but want me to return the Linkstation to Broadband buyer.

I can see this turning into a nightmare and I think I might have been able to resolve my issue by using ffannyd to keep the HDD temp down too :/

As for your scripts I actually have no idea whats going on :s
Im wondering if the NZBGet version in the ipkg repository has been upgraded since you installed it (maybe). But why youre having to type "sh S81nzbget" is way outside of my *nix knowledge base :/

How you getting on with the RMA?

Me and Methanoid (from Nas Communities) are putting pressure on Stevie to include NZBGet in his next SHMOD.

First up, a lot of this work is NOT mine. A lot of it has been pulled together from either The NAS Central Site or from Soopahflys experiences ;)
The rest of it is mine (there is a fair chunk) :p


Just registered here to say thanks for a really comprehensive guide, that managed to get me up and running nzbget on my Linkstation within an hour.

Great stuff.

Stick around, there will probably be more Linkstation related joy/pain soon!

Ive just completely rebuilt mine in a little under an hour.

Ive also come across the problem you were having soopha with the scripts I wrote. The problem is with the command I use to remove remove windows carriage returns.
Im trying to figure a work around :)


edit: Meant to say that my previous Linkstation did have a problem. The fan circuitry mustve been faulty as the fan on this one is spinning up without me having to do anything to get it working.

Shouldnt be a problem with carriage returns, if you use notepad++
Or you were copying them with additional carriage returns.,

Ive just added these little dittys to my NZBGET.Conf file

Task2.Time=09:00
Task2.WeekDays=1-7
Task2.Command=DownloadRate
Task2.DownloadRate=150

Task3.Time=22:00
Task3.WeekDays=1-7
Task3.Command=DownloadRate
Task3.DownloadRate=0

Basically, it throttles my bandwidth to 150k during the day, and then unlimited after 10.

Ive setup a couple of schedules to pause and resume downloading outside of peak hours :)

Nice one, will do :)

I found out the hard way that the Linkstation can only read FAT32. I found this out after formatted a 1TB USB disk to FAT32 and copying 500gb of data onto it :/

So Ive spent the entire weekend porting my existing media onto a 1TB XFS disk. Very, very painful exercise.

Let me know if you find a way of automatically renaming TV shows when they are downloaded!
