SickRage forks

Postby clinton.hall » Fri Jun 22, 2018 4:36 am

Hi All,

I have been offline for a while, having changed jobs, moved countries etc...

Throughout this, my SickRage install has been working fine so I had no reason to question it. But now I am checking compatibility with the arm64 systems and I notice that 1 of the SickRage forks works, but the other does not.

The SickRageTV fork has added several new requirements (python libs) and these require cross-compiling. I can do this for a few libs here and there, but for something changing so frequently this becomes too much for this type of APP. This may be better served by a Docker, or Entware system (neither of which I have much experience with).

The SickRage fork itself still functions fine. and I have submitted to App Central a new SickGear app.

Given the incompatibility with the current SickRageTV fork, I am assuming no-one is currently using this fork of Asustor (through my App) or at least are not updating it. But the question is, does anyone want me to keep the option to install a custom fork (keeping in mind it may not be compatible), or just update the App to provide only SickRage fork (unless someone manually edits files)?

Is anyone aware of another App or a method of supporting SickRageTV or is anyone otherwise keen to have this fork supported?

If only I had seen this thread before! Sickrage is, well - sick.

Yup - I'm using your builds. Now with all the shenanigans going on - I can't update or go anywhere.

I would love to hear what you might suggest now? I'm still keen to keep my asustor running - still solid!
