Installing CouchPotato NZB and Torrent Downloader:
written by EON Mar 10, 2012 (Estimated Time: 5 mins)

This guide shows how to add the CouchPotato (python based) nzb and torrent downloader to your EON ZFS Server.

Pre-requisite(s): The Binary Kit must be installed.
                         Python
                         SABnzbd
                         A newsgroup provider and a source for .nzb files.

This assumes Internet connectivity is working and the pre-requisites have been installed. Let's install CouchPotato downloader. Start by downloading the latest source. The bitly link is kept updated to the latest version of CouchPotato periodically. If it is lagging or you wish to try a beta nightly you can download the source directly from CouchPotato home. 
cd /tmp
wget -U mozilla -O couchpotato.zip --no-check-certificate http://bit.ly/couchpotato-latest

Let's unpack and move the directory to the proper location. The name "RuudBurger-CouchPotato-xxxxxx" will vary per version.
unzip -q -aa couchpotato.zip
mv RuudBurger-CouchPotato-6970c10 /usr/local/couchpotato

CouchPotato is now installed and can be started and stopped using "emp". Then, browse to your EON IP "http://EON_IP:xxx"
emp couchpotato start
emp couchpotato stop
