I have un-tarred the nzbget0.70 debug version and have put it in the /ffp/bin dir. and I have a config file in the /ffp/etc/ dir

but when I try to run it, I get the following:

root@NAS:/mnt/HD_a2/ffp/bin# nzbget
-sh: nzbget: not found
root@NAS:/mnt/HD_a2/ffp/bin# sh nzbget
nzbget: line 1: syntax error: word unexpected (expecting ")")

I used this how-to: http://www.aroundmyroom.com/2009/01/27/the-how-to-that-replaces-all/

I used this tar: nzbget-0.7.0-bin-dns323-arm-debug.tar.gz from http://sourceforge.net/projects/nzbget/files/

what did I do wrong?

ps. I logged in as root


nzbget is a binary file; you can't use sh to process it, you would do that if nzbget were a shell script. Running just nzbget didn't work because by default the current directory is not on the PATH, so you need to do something like:

$ ./nzbget


$ /mnt/HD_a2/ffp/bin/nzbget
  • You are right. I had to use a special build for the ch3Mnas and then run it like this: ./nzbget -D -c /ffp/etc/nzbget.conf – JP Hellemons Nov 9 '10 at 8:28
