nzbget and dd-wrt router & external HD. Need help for setup

Post by Qube » 03 Dec 2008, 20:59

I am trying to get nzbget to work with my system. I have the Asus wl-520gu that is running dd-wrt mini-usb version. I have got USB support working with Samba to hook an external HD to the USB port of the router. I can access the drive thru windows by typing \\ in an explorer window.

I have three partitions on my ext HD which is formatted in ext3. I have partition one for Optware packages, partition 2 for linux-swap files, partition 3 for Data ( I would like the nzbget files to be placed here for all the computers at my house to access). I had to install the nzbget with this command because the other way did not work. I typed '/opt/bin/ipkg-opt install nzbget'

I have installed nzbget and configured my configuration file. However I do know know where to place this renamed file called .nzbget. It says to place this in the root. I save a copy there and it looks greyed out and different than the other files in that location.

I do not know how/where to place this and how to get this script to run. Also when the files are downloaded, I would like it to download the completed files to the Data partition of the HD. The pathway is /jffs/mnt/share/disk1/Data. Will this folder also have the temporary files of nzbget when it is downloading? How do I get the nzb files to start downloading with nzbget. Do I ftp the nzb file into a specific folder?

I have used hellanzb but it crashes and would like to try this since it has a webfront end. If I load the windows frontend will I be able to transfer my nzb files directly to the router with the external HD?

Please help!!!

I'm not seeing what is your problem. Can you start nzbget? If not, what errors it prints?

If you are not sure where to place the configuration file, use switch "-c".
