SABnzbd 0.7.3 "No UNRAR program found"

I just bought, downloaded and installed Python 2.7 and SABnzbd 0.7.3 for my NV+.
Went through the installation steps, it can connect to my usenet provider (using SSL if that matters).

However I get a warning in SABnzbd "No UNRAR program found, unpacking RAR files is not possible".

Through SSH I found that newsunpack.py is here "./usr/share/sabnzbdplus/sabnzbd/newsunpack.py".

I have no clue what's wrong and hope someone can help.

Received this email:

Dear ReadyNAS User,

After the release of the SABnzbd (Sparc) add-on a fellow user found that in some cases the UNRAR utility won't get installed on fresh installs of the add-on. To fix this issue, the attached updated add-on was released and is sent out to you for updating.

To update you current install of the SABnzbd add-on, please install the attached version over the existing version on your ReadyNAS. Do NOT uninstall the currently installed version.

Sincere apologies for this inconvenience.

Best regards,
ReadyNAS Xtras


I downloaded and installed the update, but now I get a warning saying "Your UNRAR version is not recommended, get it from http://www.rarlab.com/rar_add.htm"

Re: SABnzbd 0.7.3 "No UNRAR program found"

Since you have SSH access, could you please send the output from
dpkg -l | grep unrar

The version of unrar should be 4.1.4 which is one of the latest available. Unfortunately SAB constantly fails to detect the version it dislikes correctly.

The output for that is:

Re: SABnzbd 0.7.3 "No UNRAR program found"

That's the latest version and as supected, SAB just fails to detect it properly. Should work fine but if you encounter any problems with unpacking please let me know.

Re: SABnzbd 0.7.3 "No UNRAR program found"

If I got an old version, how do I upgrade unrar then?

I have a Readynas ultra 6 with Radiator 4.2.22 and sabnzbd 0.7.6 (x86).

Output for dpkg -l | grep unrar is:

# dpkg -l | grep unrar
ii unrar 1:3.5.4-1.1 Unarchiver for .rar files (non-free version)


And unrar version shows:

# unrar
UNRAR 3.51 freeware Copyright (c) 1993-2005 Alexander Roshal


---------------------------------------------------------
EDIT: Reinstalling sabnzbd fixed it!

Output for dpkg -l | grep unrar is now:

# dpkg -l | grep unrar
ii unrar 1:4.1.4-1.1rnx0 Unarchiver for .rar files (non-free version)


And unrar version shows now:

# unrar
UNRAR 4.10 freeware Copyright (c) 1993-2012 Alexander Roshal

Re: SABnzbd 0.7.3 "No UNRAR program found"

You don't. Either use the one installed by default, or the one bundled with the version of Sabnzbd you purchase from WhoCares.

Re: SABnzbd 0.7.3 "No UNRAR program found"

Reinstall whichever version of SABnzbd you have over the top of itself. If you've installed Transmission (or an update to it) by Super-Poussin, it will replace the UNRAR version installed by SABnzbd with an older (not recommend) version. Re-installing SABnzbd over the top of itself will solve this problem.
