    install Radarr

    I am thinking about installing Radarr "https://radarr.video/" I have made runs at it but it seems to get complicated . I thought if anybody has come across an easy way to install or know how to do one that's easy. If so I would appreciate the information. I figured that somebody might have an easy solution and thought I would ask.

    Thank you......................

    Re: install Radarr

    I thought I would make a run at installing radarr. I used the instructions at https://low-orbit.net/how-to-install-radarr-ubuntu. I did the following:
    installed dependencies
    Downloaded radar.master.3.2.2.5080,linux-core-x64.tar.gz
    unpacked the tar.gz file and moved the results (in Radarr) to the opt/ folder
    (not sure Radarr shouldn't be radarr also noted that the files was full of a lot of microsoft stuff)


    I then created a service file with cd /etc/systemd/system/ and then sudo gedit radarr.service
    then inserted the code below and saved the file at /etc/sysemd/system/:
    Code:
    [Unit]
    Description=Radarr Daemon
    After=syslog.target network.target
    
    [Service]
    User=root
    Group=root
    Type=simple
    ExecStart=/usr/bin/mono /opt/Radarr/Radarr.exe -nobrowser
    TimeoutStopSec=20
    KillMode=process
    Restart=on-failure
    
    [Install]
    WantedBy=multi-user.target
    After saving the file, as "radar.service" I enabled it with "sudo systemctl enable radarr" In theory this should fix it so
    that it starts running when I boot up. (I am not sure about this one. The name of the file was "radar.service", I enabled 'radarr' and wonder how it knows)

    Then it told me to go to http://192.168.0.108:7878, in the browser, and it should appear - it didn't.

    both owner and group of the radar.service file is 'root'

    "server radarr status got me
    Code:
    greg@movies:~$ sudo service radarr status
    ● radarr.service - Radarr Daemon
         Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/radarr.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

        Process: 22662 ExecStart=/usr/bin/mono /opt/Radarr/Radarr.exe -nobrowser (code=exited, status=2)
       Main PID: 22662 (code=exited, status=2)

    Aug 28 14:21:35 movies systemd[1]: Failed to start Radarr Daemon.
    I am now stopped as something isn't right.

    Thoughts?

    Re: install Radarr

    I tried another found at radarr.video At the beginning there are prerequisites that confused me:
    Installation Prerequisites
    The below instructions are based on the following prerequisites. Change the instructions as needed to suit your specific needs if necessary.
    * The user radarr is created
    * The user radarr is part of the group media
    * Your download clients and media server run as and are a part of the group media
    * Your paths used by your download clients and media server are accessible (read/write) to the group media
    * You created the directory /var/lib/radarr and ensured the user radarr has read/write permissions for it

    These are assumptions that the reader has a clue about where stuff comes from so the following were my thoughts and the replies (ending with "linux 101"):

    The user radarr is created have no idea how this is created - no instructions

    The radarr installation instructions are not linux 101. Previous Linux knowledge or basic google abilities are required.

    The user radarr is part of the group media OK - in what file, where?

    A user being part of a group has nothing to do with a file at all. The radarr installation instructions are not linux 101. Previous Linux knowledge or basic google abilities are required.

    Your download clients and media server run as and are a part of the group media I use sabnzbd+ which is somehow attached to group media in what file?

    A group has nothing to do with a file at all. You don't know what user and group you configured sabznbd to run as?

    Your paths used by your download clients and media server are accessible (read/write) to the group media More mystery with no documentation....

    Basic linux paths/permissions/ownership. The radarr installation instructions are not linux 101. Previous Linux knowledge or basic google abilities are required. TL;DR Radarr needs to be able to read/write your download and library locations.

    You created the directory /var/lib/radarr and ensured the user radarr has read/write permissions for it Did I - don't think so - have no idea what the reference is or means

    The radarr installation instructions are not linux 101. Previous Linux knowledge or basic google abilities are required. This means you created a directory and applied the correct ownership and permissions for it.

    So, I just stopped as I got yelled at for not doing stuff for which there was no documentation.
    First I thought to reply but thought better of it. Does anybody have a clue as to what this guy is talking about?

    Thank you...........

    Re: install Radarr

    I have been doing yet more reading on this whole thing. Seems that the latest radarr is 3.2.2.5080 This version no longer uses momo but something called core which I have no clue about. I also found that there were bugs in version 3. All told it would seem I would be better off to just forget radarr until its a bit more mature. That being the case I am going to mark this as done in about a week to give anybody time to reply to my last. Then I will mark this whole thing as solved and move on (and return in a couple of months to make another run at it)

    Re: install Radarr

    Just a tip: When installing unsupported SW, it is best to make a virtual machine to experiment and instal the program. This way, you don’t mess up your host system.

    Re: install Radarr

    I have been studying on this and decided to just wait a bit as Radarr seems to still be in development and things are changing and this might not be the right time to install it. That being said I am going to mark this as solved (that's the only choice)

    Want to thank everybody who replied to my plight.............
