Systemd service files shouldn't be executable. Instead of this:

install -Dm755 "${srcdir}/${pkgname}.service" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/systemd/system/${pkgname}.service"

Do this.

install -Dm644 "${srcdir}/${pkgname}.service" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/systemd/system/${pkgname}.service"

Also, please update this package. alpha507 adds support for pushbullet notifications. If you don't have time to maintain this package, please disown it so someone else can take over.

Running the below commands is enough to make it work with the latest build at this time, 507:

$ sed -i 's/506/507/g' PKGBUILD
$ updpkgsums

You may want to verify the sums yourself rather than just trust it worked

nicoulaj if you aren't going to update the package, can you stop maintaining it so someone else can pick it up, please?

The sickbeard.service file has incorrect permissions when it's installed, which causes systemd to throw this warning:

Configuration file /usr/lib/systemd/system/sickbeard.service is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.

I assume you just need to change the 755 to 644 in:

msg2 "Install daemon script in /usr/lib/systemd/system..."
install -Dm755 "${srcdir}/${pkgname}.service" "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/systemd/system/${pkgname}.service"

Thanks for the heads-up. I completely missed the existence of those packages for some strange reason. (They seem to be identical?)

Please disregard my earlier comment.

@justinkb: There is already a sickbeard-master and sickbeard-master-git AUR package. Unless you're advocating for less AUR packages, which I guess has it's pros.

justinkb commented on 2014-04-16 13:54

Can't we make this a git master AUR package?

Rather silly to rely on tags, when they release so irregularly. Master branch is always well-tested, though.

sickbeard-git AUR package is based on git HEAD, which points to the development branch, which isn't quite as well tested and liable to screw up sickbeard.db every now and then.

Sorry, disregard my nonsense.
