The sabnzbd 3.0.0 release is python3, yay! I've also moved the install from /opt to /usr/lib/sabnzbd and /var/lib/sabnzbd. The .install file should move things around as needed, but please post if it doesn't.

Looks like we're pulling from the upstream "Source Code (.tar.gz)" option on github (, there's a significant amount of diffs between the above version and (SABnzbd-1.0.1-src.tar.gz) though both are labelled as 1.0.1 release and functionally do not seem different.

If we want the versioning represented appropriately we can change the package to pull down the Linux source package (SABnzbd-1.0.1-src.tar.gz).

Do so by removing lines 32-35 in the PKGBUILD.

You also need to modify lines 15 and 30 respectively in the PKGBUILD to read as:


cp -r "${srcdir}/${_pkgname}-${pkgver}/"* "${pkgdir}/opt/${pkgname}"

Yeah, I noticed this too, if anything this appears to be an upstream issue, because the tar archive for v1.0.0 is coming from upstream.

I just update sabnzbd with this package but it states it is version 0.8.x.
Within help as well as in the tab of my browser

Is this intended ?

Update: it can be easily corrected by editing /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd/

upgrading from 1.0.0-1 to 1.0.0-2 I have to redo all the configuration, it's this normal ?

francoism90 commented on 2016-03-20 17:35

@Revelation60: could you update the systemd file? It should point to the config file:
ExecStart=/opt/sabnzbd/ -10 -f /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini

Thanks. :)

PS. I have updated the SABnzbd Wiki, would be great if you guys could take a look and fix/improve when needed. :)

Sabnzbd is updated to version 1.0.0. This is a major update, so some reconfiguration using the web wizard is required. Remember to update the API key in /etc/conf.d/sabnzbd if you want to open .nzb files with sabnzbd.

Done. Hopefully it is ok now.

Please update the .SRCINFO file too, as the information provided by the RPC interface isn't correct and is needed by some helpers.

I think it's better to start sabnzbd only when you want to use it instead of having it always running for the obvious reason that you don't always download something.

Thanks to look at it !

Ah, I was looking at a wrong version it seems. Anyway, I will see if I can make a hybrid that also works to start sabnzbd.

That being said, justin8 is right, the default procedure would be to start it as a service.
