  1. Unbalance doesn't seem to start after upgrading to 6.8.0-rc1. The service shows as stopped and won't start. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin, but the problem persisted. Launching from command line works (/usr/local/emhttp/plugins/unbalance/unbalance -port 6237).
  2. Just noticed that the docker has updated to Deluge 2.0! I'm already seeing a noticeable drop in my CPU load an RAM usage with a moderate number of torrents running. Kudos to: Arvid Norberg (libtorrent), Calum "Cas" Lind (Deluge), and of course @binhex!
  3. See the FAQ under "Q1. I am having issues using a post processing script which connects to CouchPotato/Sick Beard, how do i fix this?". You need to define "ADDITIONAL_PORTS" environment variables to allow outgoing connections from the VPN docker to another container/application.
  4. If the problem is specifically connecting deluge with couchpotato (both running on the same host), check the FAQ under the heading "How do i connect CouchPotato to DelugeVPN". The process is a lot more complicated than for things like Radarr/Sonarr because Couchpotato connects directly to the deluge daemon (instead of the webui) so you need to use the deluge credentials from the /config/auth file. (disclaimer: i haven't used Couchpotato in a ages, so it's possible it interfaces through the Deluge WebUI now)
  5. Glad you got it sorted. I've had good success using freshtomato (forum link) as firmware for my wireless AP.
  6. I'm no expert but it sounds like a local networking issue. Check things like cables and MTU settings. Double check your ddwrt settings to make sure it's not doing anything it's not supposed to be doing (particularly things like QoS or other flow controls and anything that involves packet inspection). Make sure your not doing things like using Wi-Fi for your torrent box or running a VPN client on your router in addition to the VPN client running on the delugeVPN box. Maybe try reverting back to the older ddwrt firmware.
  7. The core has been completely rewritten to maintain compatibility with the latest libtorrent versions. The biggest difference is in terms of performance--the new Deluge v.2.0 is a lot more resource efficient especially when seeding a large number of torrents. But there are plenty of cool new features too. For example, Deluge v.2.0 adds multiuser support in the WebUI, so you can have different login usernames and passwords and each user will only see their own torrents. The roadmap suggests that cas was aiming for a Dec. 31 release of 2.0.0, but I'm not so sure he's going to make it because of the Windows issues. Nevertheless, the project is really close to a release and it's probably a good time to start thinking about a docker for it. Plus the Christmas holidays might make a good time for people to play with an experimental docker to find bugs .
  8. @binhex Any chance of getting a Deluge-2.0 VPN docker? The beta has been out for a year now and is quite stable from my (albeit limited) testing. The biggest current issues before a final 2.0 release seem to be around the Windows version not playing well with Python 3 (from the bug-tracker).
  9. Yes. See my post a few posts up. Preclear just inexplicably stalled about 20 hours into pre-read. Tried it again and the same thing happened.
  10. I just completed my run using the binhex patched bjp script through the plugin, so I can confirm it works fine on unRAID v.6.5.3.
  11. Preclearance is hell. Not sure why, but preclearance never seems to go straightforward for me. Problems: 1) Unfortunately, disks that are being pre-cleared count towards your license disk limit. I'm upgrading storage by replacing disks with higher capacity disks, so I didn't really think I needed to upgrade my license. But, during pre-clearance I'm temporarily going to have extra disks plugged in--so down goes the array. Think your family doesn't like you, try telling them the Plex server will be down for the entire weekend or more. 2) After ~20 hours preclearance stalls during pre-read. The web UI is still accessible and shows 3 (out of 4) CPUs pinned to 100%. I don't see any errors in the logs, so I let the preclearance continue running. After another 10hrs without advancing in the preclearance, I stop the preclearance. After stopping the preclearance, 3 of 4 CPUs are still pinned at 100% according to the web UI. I SSH into the system to see what's eating the CPU, but htop shows the CPUs as idle. I assume it's a visual bug with the WebUI and attempt to restart the server. Server doesn't respond to the restart command through the WebUI or a 'powerdown' command through SSH shell. I'm forced to hard powerdown using the power button (but don't mind since the array wasn't loaded because of he disk limit). 3) Another ~20 hours preclearance confirms the bug. Same symptoms as before: preclearance stalls @ 20hr mark, 3 of 4 CPUs pinned to 100%, server unresponsive to powerdown commands. 4) So I decide to use @binhex's updated bjp fast pre-clear script. I get past the 20hr mark fine, so I figure I'm home free. But alas, I get hit with a power outage at the 40 hr mark. Apparently, preclearance doesn't exit gracefully when the UPS shutdown command is issued. Luckily I'm around when this happens, so I manually stop the preclearance which allows the server to shutdown. Unfortunately it's only after the unraid server has eaten up a huge portion of my UPS battery. Think your family hates you, try telling them that the battery power that supposed to keep the internet on during power outages only has half an hour of juice left because the unraid server kept running.
  12. Out of curiosity, how much memory does everyone's Sonarr docker use? You can check your docker memory usage using the "docker stats" command in SSH. My Sonarr docker seems to creep up daily from ~160MB to about 1GB (of a 4GB system) after 5 days. I'm not sure if this is normal or a memory leak.
  13. I like this idea a lot! 100+ page threads are really terrible for someone trying to search for the answer to a problem, so the same questions end up get asked again and again. Having users able to submit posts so that each issue is in its own thread would make things much easier to look up. Many authors maintain links to frequently referenced information in their signatures (which is a life saver). However, I don't think that people realize that you can disable your ability to see others signatures in your profile settings (and it's disabled by default i think). I know I didn't realize that I had signatures disabled and spent way too much time trying to find information that was linked in the signature. Having authors able to create sticky threads in their sub-forum would be a better solution for info that is otherwise put in the signature now.
  14. The Intel ME vulnerabilities require a BIOS fix. If your motherboard is still receiving BIOS updates, update your BIOS. If, like most people (i assume), you're running unRAID on older hardware which no longer gets BIOS updates there are a still a few things you can do. 1. The most worrying aspect of Intel ME vulnerabilities is that you can be remotely exploited since Intel allows direct access to the ME through NIC integration (something AMD doesn't do). Fortunately, it seems that simply using a secondary NIC (e.g. from a PCI-e NIC card) mitigates this issue, since the ME is only configured to communicate through the built in NIC. 2. It may also be possible to fully disable and/or remove Intel ME from your system using ME_Cleaner. Originally ME_Cleaner simply deleted most of the ME partition from the bios and left only what was necessary for booting. Recently, however, it has integrated a soft_disable functionality which simply sets a specific flag in the ME firmware to "1" which prevents ME from loading (interestingly, the NSA was behind forcing Intel to include this hidden flag so they could disable ME on their computers). I've used ME_Cleaner on a couple of computers (both with soft-disable and full removal) and never had any problems. However, it's a pretty complicated procedure requiring external flashing of the bios chip using something like a raspberry pi (you'll need to buy a soic clip and some short wires). 3. Assuming your unRAID box is behind a NAT firewall, you can also simply block access to ports 16992-16993 (which are the ports Intel ME listens on). EDIT: For clarity, the Asus Intel ME update tool updates the Intel ME firmware partition independent of the rest of the BIOS. I really wouldn't try to run it through a VM. You can try something like this instead: https://www.flamingspork.com/blog/2017/11/22/updating-windows-management-engine-firmware-on-a-lenovo-without-a-windows-install/
