    Smile nzb dowloader - hellanzb

    Hi guys

    I have managed to get my nice mini itx server running with suse 11.1. what I want to do is to use a web based nzb downloader.

    running into some problems
    I have first tried hellanzb.
    my suse box throws me the following errors:
    error: Failed dependencies:
    python(abi) = 2.5 is needed by hellanzb-0.13-6.fc10.noarch
    python-yenc is needed by hellanzb-0.13-6.fc10.noarch

    have searched the earth to find pyhton (abi) or python-yenc.

    anybody knows where I can find these
    or does anybody know an rpm of hellanzb that i can install?

    apearantly webmin has a module fro hellanzb and thats exactly what i want to use it for. I would appriciate it if someone would have an answer to my question.

    my other option is to install ubuntu that has hellanzb in its repo. seeing that my suse server is running fine , I dont realy want to do this.

    please guys can you help me out here ?

    why not try wine with grabit,i am currently using that and it works fine, just that u need to import nzb files when u download the nzb files. i tried plenty of newgroups downloaders and the best in linux was pan but it have weird issues with nzb files sometimes

    btw u can use alot of the functions that comes with grabit, such as extraction and par repairs

    try it if u want

    I would if i was running a desktop and had a gui. I am running it as a server with no gui enabled , hence the need for a webinterface:-)

    the reason why i have opted for this solution is because my mini itx server is pulling 40watt at high load , therefore can leave it running without the need of gui forever .. ssh is great I can do everything I need with ssh.

    and yes I have tried wine on ubuntu desktop that I have running on my main pc. but I cannot leave that on at all times.

    You could also look at nntpgrab which is in the opensuse repo's:

    Question Re: nzb dowloader - hellanzb

    great installed nntpgrab and nntpgrab-web.
    after scratching my head, as there is no one on the web that tells you how to use nntpgrab.

    figured out that nntp installs intself in /usr/shared/nntp/.. checked config.ini file

    looks like it is using port 5423

    ok so I open port 5423 in suse firewall and in my router.

    acces the webinterface http://localhost:5423 and nothing happens.

    ofcourse the server is not started..

    gueswork figures out that i need to start server by typing nntpgrab_server. great after issuing this command it outputs the following.

    server:/home/rashman # nntpgrab_server
    Now initialising the NNTPGrab Core...
    Warning:
    Configuration file for the NNTPGrab backend could not be loaded. Default configuration file is now created
    NNTPGrab Server up and running on 1 sockets


    waaw we are getting somewhere. so lets acces the web interface localhost:5423 ..

    ok ..... ???the page seems to be hanging in loading state ???

    a quick glance at my ssh connection shows

    server:/home/<myname> # nntpgrab_server
    Now initialising the NNTPGrab Core...
    Warning:
    Configuration file for the NNTPGrab backend could not be loaded. Default configuration file is now created
    NNTPGrab Server up and running on 1 sockets

    New client connected

    (process:30119): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_label_set_text: assertion `GTK_IS_LABEL (label)' failed
    received command from socket 6: GET / HTTP/1.1
    main.c:172 INVALID_COMMAND sent to client


    what is happening????


    suggestion if someone is going to suggest a nzb program can they be so kind to explain how to use it ??

    back to my problem of hellanzb, or SABnzbd or nntpgrab
    need a nzb package that can be accesed and configured via the web.
