Installing Plex, radarr, sonarr, Jackett, overseer, qbittorrent, etc

Hi all!

New here!

I’m trying to download Plex, radarr, sonarr, jackett, overseer, QBittorrent +VPN, possibly via docker and portainer on my raspberry pi 2 B V1.1 and an external HDD.

However, I am quite overwhelmed by all the instructions. I have no coding experience. I do not know whether or not I need to use docker or portainer or use everything as is, nor how to set everything up correctly.

Does anyone know a guide I could use for this combination or have any tips for me?

Thank you!

Most of the software you are looking for is available via dietpi-software as native apps (not Docker). Usually there is no need for any coding experience.

However you are free to use Docker if you wish. Best to check with the individual Docker image provider on how to set them up correctly.

Thank you very much for your reply!

Unfortunately, I see that Overseer does not run without Docker.

Is it possible to run Docker and native apps alongside each other? Or is it not possible to run those at the same time?

There are no limitations. You can run Docker container next to native apps. Just ensure they don’t try to grab same port :slight_smile:

Great, thank you!
And am I correct in assuming that I cannot install dietpi-optimized applications on docker as well?

Just figuring out if it worth running everything on docker, running docker and available native apps side by side, or ditching Overseerr for an alternative. Because my Raspberry Pi 2 probably is not going to handle a heavy load if non-native apps are, if I’m not mistaken, much more memory heavy. Thanks!

No, we don’t offer Docker container installation at all in addition to Portainer. Our goal is to run as many native applications as possible.

In terms of memory consumption, native applications should be similar compared to Docker containers. With Docker, however, you must expect additional memory consumption for the Docker engine. 80-100 MB memory requirement. This can make a difference, especially on boards with low physical memory.
