Android problems

Post by manderss99 » 03 Aug 2017, 07:57

Got excited when I found out I could run nzbget on my Samsung S8+.

However I have encountered some problems:

When I start the daemon it says successfully started, however the daemon status on the home screen
says stopped and stop daemon and show web interface are disabled. When I go to localhost in a webbrowser
the daemon is started however.

When I configure the newsserver I had to use the ip address for it to work, the dns name does not work.

The daemon shuts down by itself now and then.

Anyway to get some attention to these problems? Would be great to have nzbget running on my mobile.

Experimental support for Android was introduced two years ago but very few users showed interest. The feature remains in experimental state and isn't advertised.

Support for android is achieved by using universal Linux installer. Since there is no special build for android, if the Linux version for some reason doesn't work well there is unfortunately little that can be done.

We will probably not be able to fix the issues you have but we can try.

It's probably crashed. Try installing debug version, activate all logging (DebugTarget=log, DetailTarget=log (or both), etc.). Activate option CrashTrace. When it crashes again - send me the log-file to
