as I said, I don't think the GPU stuff is related to sabnzbd.

anyway, if don't use the screen you could try to set the following in /Dietpi/config.txt to get rig of the GPU error message.

Code: Select all

hdmi_blanking=1
regarding sabnzbd. can you have a look into /etc/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini. There you should find these 2 entries

Code: Select all

log_dir = /var/log/sabnzbd
log_level = 0
try to increase the log level and restart sabnzbd service. I tried to check sabnzbd documentation to find out what the debugging value would be.

Hmm... I increased the log level to 1 and then 2 (found some documentation saying 0 is least and 2 most). Still no logs sadly :(

it will be hard to continue without logs, as we don't know why SABnzbd is failing. Probably it would be good if you can raise the issue at SABnzbd Forum. Maybe these guys will have an idea why SABnzbd is failing and did not have logs

https://forums.sabnzbd.org/

Maybe you can try to start it manually by running the following command. Hopefully it will give some error messages

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/python2.7 -OO /etc/sabnzbd/SABnzbd.py -b 0 -f /etc/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini

Ahaa! Manually starting seemed to give something new: "The Python module Cheetah is required". Should that been automatically included?

Compiling a new python with Cheetah is getting too complicated for me at the moment :)

Thanks for help! I'll try to manage!

Thanks :)

Sadly no dice: "ERROR: Package 'Markdown' requires a different Python: 2.7.16 not in '>=3.5'"

Seems Cheetah needs Markdown and it needs newer Python... (I'm not too familiar with Linux packages etc.)

strange issue, because SABnzbd requires Python 2.7 according /etc/sabnzbd/SABnzbd.py file. Hmm seems a new version of Markdown was released in Feb 2020.

https://pypi.org/project/Markdown/#history

so what you can try it is to install a lower version of Markdown manually.

Code: Select all

pip install Markdown==3.1.1
afterwards you could try to re-install SABnzbd as follow

Code: Select all

dietpi-software reinstall 139

Yes!

After older Markdown it actually worked! And I got SABnzbd installed and it's running! :) btw: I had to install from "scratch", the re-install said nothing to reinstall (because of the failed initial install I guess)

Thanks!
