Whats the best way to update sickrage to the latest version ?

@jleclanche: I'm trying to stay away from the drama.
The original project/repo may currently be broken, however, it is not gone.
Until then, you should be free to install either the original (sickrage-git) or the forked version (sickrage2-git).

@willemw Been reviewing this for half an hour or so and reading up on the "drama". I think you should merge this into sickrage-git and change sickrage-git to the new repository. The old one looks pretty much abandoned comparatively. Builds are broken, etc...

Is there anyone *specifically* asking for the echel0n one?

@jtp755: This package is a "VCS package" (ends with "-git")¸ which means it should never be part of an (explicit) system upgrade ("yaourt -Syua", "pacaur -Syu"). You decide when to upgrade, when using the package manager ("yaourt -S sickrage2-git").

It seems something is wrong with your system. Or the package version is causing it. Try reinstalling the package to correct the package version number.

You could block the package from upgrading by ignoring it ("--ignore" command line option or "IgnorePkg" in /etc/pacman.conf).

I initially installed Sickrage2-git to get it installed and running with the service. I have since been maintaining it via the in-application updater which works awesome.

The problem i have is that this package does not sync up with the version installed and always shows as needing to me updated by yaourt.

Is there a way i can remove it or block it from being part of the update list without interfering with my current installation?

You can use both: update the package or use the built-in updater.
If get (many) "failed to commit transaction (conflicting files)" errors during a package update, then check the comment in the PKGBUILD file.

About download file permissions:
See my suggestion:
Or you could install sickrage yourself as normal user.

Ah, I hadn't considered that.

I thought the point of a git package was that it built from git every time, and not use the built in updater.
I think the old one worked like that. Or I might be confusing it with couchpotato or the non-git one.

I'll just go mess with permissions some more. I have to learn sometime :p

With a user service, you won't have file permissions to update sickrage from the web interface. So, I prefer not to include it. However, I am open to suggestions.

thisischrys commented on 2015-12-03 11:31

can you include the user service?

Note: when upgrading from an old instance or migrating from another sickrage fork instance, check the instructions on
- Make a backup copy of your existing database (sickbeard.db) and delete any other database files such as cache.db and failed.db if present.
