This has been tested and works well on a ARM9 Linkstation Live. Should work on others. We are using HellaNZB which is a NZB-based usenet "leech" client which also PAR checks and un-archives the files you have downloaded.

Prerequisites

There are 2 options:

Stock firmware/jtymod

Installation

ipkg update ipkg upgrade ipkg install python py24-cheetah py24-cherrypy py24-elementtree py24-celementtree py24-yenc par2cmdline unrar unzip

This installs Python and all the dependencies needed including UnRar, PAR checking and YEnc decoder.

Download SABnzbd from http://www.sabnzbd.org/download/ but make sure you download the "sources" version as that includes the actual python scrips we need for NAS box. Unarchive wherever you want (but I will continue with an example). This can be done within Windows or Linux and I unarchived to

/mnt/disk1/shared/sabnzbd




Configuration

You'll need to configure SABnzbd which is easiest done using the web interface which you can access via

http://localhost:8080/sabnzbd/

Edit the config to include your Usenet providers server and your own choices as to whether to enable PAR or RAR checking.

Remember, the Linkstation is a NAS box not a high spec PC so don't be too greedy on the number of connections as it might actually make it go slower. For example, I can happily max out a 4Mbit line with 4 connections. Try different numbers and see how you get on.
