Compiled NZBget 10.2 for Raspbian Armhf

Hi, I've built NZBget 10.2 for Raspbian Armhf. It includes the patches for libpar2 (thanks to http://www.howtogeek.com/162060/how-to-install-nzbget-for-lightweight-usenet-downloading-on-your-raspberry-pi/ ). Building takes quite some time, so I thought it would be nice to share the resulting .deb: h...

What is your newsserver? You need a newsserver to use NNTPgrab (or any Usenet client).

Re: Send mail from RPi without mail-account

Yes, this is possible using a Message Transfer Agent like sendmail (not adviced AFAIK), postfix or exim4. Please note: This won't work if your ISP blocks outgoing SMTP sessions. Easy check for that: "telnet gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com smtp" ... and see if you get an answer. What you want is also what...

Re: USB dial-up modem

If you find this a nice project in itself, just continue :-)

However, if this is only a means to get the Raspi online and updated, I would advice to go for broadband (DSL or cable).

Re: Big delay when mounting hugh partition.

I checked the .config on my Raspi for LBD, and it only has LBDAF CONFIG_LBDAF=y which is something else. http://kernel.xc.net/html/linux-2.6.29/arm/#LBD tells LBD depends on CONFIG_BLOCK, which is set to Y to the Raspi's .config. [email protected] ~ $ grep -i lbd /home/pi/ELRO/source-dingen/ra...

Re: Big delay when mounting hugh partition.

Did you Google "Very big device. Trying to use"? I did, and some pointers: CONFIG_LBD=y like http://kernel.xc.net/html/linux-2.6.29/x86/LBD says, but not sure if it is x86 only. It seems only on 32-bit, not on 64-bit. So: is your other system 64-bit? https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/19284/ for an ...

A Conexant usb modem? Isn't that a so-called winmodem? If so, it could very well that it won't work on Linux-on-ARM. Reason: winmodems were made for Windows, were some of the handling was done on Windows, with Windows-only drivers. Some of them later on worked on Linux (drivers via http://www.linuxa...

Code: Select all

NNTPGrab Server

Possible arguments:
-b / --background	Start the NNTPGrab Server in the background
-h / --help		You're watching it now

... so I would try the -b option.

Then logout and see if it still runs.

It might mean something is wrong with the GPIO circuit, but I still would think that that would fail silently.
Oh. I must say I have no TX433 connected now, but I really think the software can't detect that, so that shouldn't matter.

Re: Non-Techie with USB Problem

If you want to further analyze it:

General: Detach keyboard, boot Linux, ssh into the Raspi. Do a 'lsusb'. Then connect the keyboard, and do 'lsusb' and 'dmesg | tail'.

Do that for both Raspbian and Debian, and check for differences.

The problem seems to be the "-g D"; if I leave it out, I don't get the error.

However, I don't know what could be wrong about "-g D". :?

Re: how determine raspian version (sf/hf)

An ugly way / indicator: When I run "sudo apt-get update", from the 3rd line on, the output contains "armhf". So I must have a hard-float OS.
