1  Linux Stuff / General Linux questions / Re: Sabnzbd on Debian Squeeze on: June 27, 2011, 05:09:26 AM
Have you set up the contrib repository for squeeze?

The sabnzbd website also offers a linux source download if you can't get the deb package from the repo.  The deb is also quite old (v5.4x) whereas the website offers v6.x iirc.

Rule of thumb is to setup applications to store files in folders of removable media, NOT in the root folder of the media.  This way if the media is removed or fails to mount, the folder won't be accessible and the application won't be able to write the file.  In your case, since /media/usb3 was available (it's the mount point on the plug) but the drive was NOT mounted, bittorrent happily stored the file directly on the plug.

Ideally you should always issue the umount command before removing media. Via the command line:
sudo umount /media/usb3

This ensures that all open files are properly closed or it will tell you that the drive is busy and can't be unmounted.

Possible cause: can't load IA 32-bit .so on a ARM-bit platform <-- This is the problem

Your libzigbee.so is compiled for a 32bit (x86) architecture.  You can't use that on the Sheevaplug. You will have to contact the supplier to see if they can provide you with an ARM based version of the software (or at least a libzigbee.so that has been compiled on ARM).

Do you have fetchmail and procmail/maildrop on Openembedded?  You could setup fetchmail to retrieve your gmail messages via imap or pop3.

In my case (using debian),  I have fetchmail running as a cron job.  Fetchmail passes every message onto maildrop which then performs a virus scan and runs the message through Spamassassin.  I also use maildrop to store emails directly into folders according to their subject (great for filtering mailing lists) so I don't end up with everything in my inbox.

I'm sure you could code a rule that would call specific scripts according to email subjects.
