I was running Sonarr on RPi and was able to mount directories on Drobo…[/quote]
I’m glad you were able to solve it with robocog’s help. I currently run Sonarr on Windows, but would like to move it to either my Drobo (although there is currently no DroboApp for it) or my Raspberry Pi. Can I ask you a couple questions about running it on your RPi?
First, I’ve read about people running Sonarr on a RPi 2nd generation, but not 1st generation. Is yours a 1st generation or 2nd generation RPi?
Second, what OS do you run on your RPi?
Third, did you have any trouble with Sonarr dependencies, ie mono?
Thanks in advance,
P.S. Although my questions are directed at Basil, if anyone else has run Sonarr on a Raspberry Pi I’d love to hear from you as well.
Hi harrv, I’ve run Sonarr on a Raspberry Pi 2, and 3. Currently using it on Raspberry Pi 3, and it definitely works best there. Used to use SABnzbd+, SickBeard and Couchpotato on a RPi 1, which was fine for unattended operation but wicked slow for hands-on direct user interaction.
However, you do not need to go through the painstaking manual mono installation they have there. Just install mono from apt-get, install Sonarr and everything will work flawlessly. Can take a few minutes to start up the first time you launch it, but it works quite well once set up. I cannot currently get my Drobo 4-bay Gen 2 to actually mount on the Raspberry Pi (Thread here: http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=146537), but Sonarr, SABnzbd+, and Couchpotato all work admirably. The latter two were fine even on a Raspberry Pi 1.
Thank you for taking the time to write that reply. That’s useful info. My two RPis are first generation, but if I can’t find a way to run Sonarr on something that I already leave turned on, then I’ll probably get a RPi3 for that, based on what you’ve written. I tried for a day or so to get it to run on an RPi1 without luck (because of Mono issues on the RPi1, primarily).
