Sickchill now caches all its build files locally in srcdir. To clear old cache files that are still outside the build directory, remove ~/.cache/pip/. It is probably also safe to remove ~/.local/share/virtualenv/.

Migrating to Python 3.

Switching from a "git install" to a "pip install".


If sickchill is already installed, then uninstall the package and delete the cached build files, then reinstall.

Check the journalctl output, if the service does not start. You may need to delete some cache files.

@nomad980: No. Restart=On-Success is there so that SickChill will restart after an update by the built-in updater.

Try to get more information from journalctl. Maybe there is a SickChill setting to increase log output.

@willemw the service seems to not want to start at boot. When I checked the status of the service just says "Failed with result 'exit-code'. When checking the sickchill.log in the data/log folder there is nothing new since the shutdown. Could it have something to do with the Restart=On-Success in sickchill.service?

Added Sickrage2-git may get merged into sickchill-git.

To migrate your data from sickrage2, do something like:

# systemctl stop sickchill sickrage
# rm -rf /opt/sickchill/data/*
# cp -a --sparse=always /opt/sickrage/data/* /opt/sickchill/data/
# chown -R sickchill:sickchill /opt/sickchill/data/

@kanachan: Thanks. There is an update problem at the moment with the newer repo. When you click the update link:

"Unknown current version number: If you've never used the SickRage upgrade system before then current version is not set. — Update Now"

sickrage crashes. See

Repository changed to: due to legal issues between developers. The current one is pointing to an non official fork which I don't trust the developer (bitcoin mining software, stored end user's logins to torrent sites on his server, plans to make the app pay-to-use)

The upstream repo is currently down and has been for the past week or so, due to a DMCA takedown request issued by the original author.

From the takedown request, it sounds like the Sickrage2 guys removed the "Author: echel0n <>, URL:" lines from files that had them. Per GPLv3, you're not allowed to remove the original author's copyright lines, only append your own. echel0n still owns copyright to the original files and any diffs he contributed just as the new authors own copyright to any diffs they created. But "Author: foo" isn't exactly the same as "(C) date FOO" as recommended by GPLv3. The Sickrage2 guys expect the repo to be back online shortly; hopefully they're right. This fork is way better. The drama in this project never ends, eh? Seems like mistakes were made on both sides.

If you currently have it installed and are getting a mako error when trying to access the settings, there's instructions on Sickrage2's website: If anybody has a mirror of the source code and is thinking of publishing it, note that I am NOT a lawyer, but I think you'd be safe to publish it if you at least restore the original "Author:" lines and any original Copyright or (C) lines. I'd probably recommend just waiting it out, though.
