Mylar [139500] * mylar: Can't execute daemon aborting, See . /usr/bin/python

Post by Frost »

Hello

I followed the following guide to install Mylar 3 and it looks like the service starts fine but when I look at the status it has the following error:
Mylar [139500] * mylar: Can't execute daemon aborting. See /usr/bin/python

Guide I followed: https://nzbusenet.com/en/install-mylar- ... mand-line/

I'm not sure what the problem is but if anyone could help me figure it out it would be much appreciated.

That link is for the old version of mylar, not for mylar3. Granted it should still work, but the init.d stuff doesn't work on newer *nix based systems.

But if you wanted to keep what you have and try, in the default file, you need to set the [PYTHON_BIN= to point to the location where you have python installed.

Aside from that, if you're running a newer *nix version, you should probably follow the read.me instructions in the /init-scripts/systemd/ directory of the Mylar3 installation as that's meant for systemd systems.

Sorry I posted the wrong link to the guide I used.
It was actually this one: https://nzbusenet.com/en/install-mylar3 ... roups/amp/
Not sure if that changes your thoughts on the issue or not but thought I should mention it in case it did.

I remove the /etc/default/mylar and /etc/init.d/mylar and ran Mylar.py manually and it worked. Just have to figure out how to get it to run as a service properly.

Thanks for your help.

Follow the instructions for the system service I mentioned above if you want to run it at startup and you're running a Linux based OS. Don't use the init.d stuff if you can avoid it.
