SickRage on QuickBox bleeding edge



It has been requested numerous times over and I have received several PMs additionally in regards to the inclusion of SickRage into the QuickBox Eco System.

SickRage as well as a few other packages will be included over the next week… not sure if these will be released within one version release or over the course of a couple… really just to maintain stability within the script and Dashboard.

If anyone would like to setup SickRage from our Bleeding Edge repo, then here is how:

Installer for SickRage

cd /usr/local/bin
dos2unix installpackage-sickrage
chmod +x installpackage-sickrage

Now install by typing:


Uninstaller for SickRage

dos2unix removepackage-sickrage
chmod +x removepackage-sickrage

Now you can uninstall by typing:


Check SickRage is running

Now check that SickRage is running by typing in ssh service sickrage status. More than like you will see the following output:

What does it do though?

  1. It installs SickRage in a way that future releases of QuickBox can understand and make use of. Not quite sure if this should be parsed as a multi-user friendly setup, or just keep it greedy for those of us administrating the server and/or playing host to our friends.

  2. Places sickrage in the users (in this case the Master Account) /home directory.

  3. Builds the required configurations and adds to upstart/systemd so you (the user) don’t have to juggle numerous commands and attempts to install.

  4. Builds SickRage so it boots automagically on server reboot.

####:mega: Heads Up!
Again, please remember that this is a bleeding edge release and as such, there is not currently a link to your SickRage install on the Dashboard, nor are there any Dashboard install/uninstall buttons. This will follow in an official release over the weekend.



would be nice to see this usable by all users.
If it does what i think i still need to look more into what it is. lol


This should be simple enough actually by just adding a $whoami element to the script and button on the dashboard.
