Well. Try to start it in console with

Code: Select all

nzbget -s
and see if there are any errors.

Also: Check log files, they could give you a hint what's going on. Log files should be in the same directory or in subdir "var", if you followed my small install guide.

It could also be that the username "nzbget" you used was deleted with the update. That might happen if you didn't make sure it was added to the Syno user list after manually editing /etc/passwd. Always refresh the Syno user list if you make changes to these system files so they survive a reboot/upgrade (see point 05 here):

Code: Select all

synouser --rebuild all
synogroup --rebuild all

@useless: maybe the package provided by synocommunity is easier for you. Have you tried to install it? It probably takes care of the restart automatically.

See www.synocommunity.com how to configure your NAS so that their packages become available in your package center.

Just a heads-up: SynoCommunity is still on v16.4 (Dec 2015!) and wasn't updated for quite some time.

That's good to know, however, if the update function works that shouldn't be a problem I guess?

Yeah, that's the problem: Updating doesn't work with that DSM package. :mrgreen: It's the way that package is deployed. They just drop some files in a directory, add a start script and some other things like creating a new user and that's it.

Since DSM 6 there are even some problems with the start script as DSM 6 changed the way you get root.

Maybe there will be an update in the future, don't know. I didn't want to wait any longer so I installed NZBget "manually".

There is already a beta package which installs nzbget using official nzbget installer. That way the package always installs the most actual version (nzbget stable or testing on your choice). Even built-in updates from nzbget webui should work.

The intriguing thing is that the package is created by Safihre, SABnzbd developer :!:.
See https://github.com/SynoCommunity/spksrc/issues138 for details.

Finally the packages supporting Apollolake are showing up. :D

For people who want to test, the spk's can be downloaded from this page:

https://github.com/Safihre/spksrc/relea ... 61-new-all

If you don't know which package to get, you can look up your architecture here
