Where Do We Put The Hellanzb.conf?

Asked by MM on 2010-07-24

I installed Lottanzb from source packed into packages for Slackware and when I start Lottanzb I get this message:

21:41:09 lottanzb.modes.standalone Looking for existing HellaNZB configuration files...
21:41:09 lottanzb.modes.standalone Could not find any existing HellaNZB configuration files in common places.

I've tried using the hellanzb.conf in three different places all with the same results:

/etc/hellanzb.conf

~/.config/hellanzb.conf

/home/user/.hellanzb.conf

Sorry here, but where the heck are we suppose to place this dang thing this is crazy that I've placed it in 3 places with nothing working that are common places.

THANKS

Hi SAR,

the message is misleading. It's also shown if LottaNZB has found the configuration file (/etc/hellanzb.conf) but no server has been specified in it. Dummy servers ("changeme") are ignored. This silent import functionaliy is only meant for existing HellaNZB users. When running LottaNZB, a new configuration file ~/.config/lottanzb/hellanzb.conf will be created and managed by LottaNZB. If no existing HellaNZB configuration file could be found, the user is required to set up a news server using LottaNZB.

So, assuming that you're not an existing HellaNZB user, you can simply ignore the message and set up LottaNZB simply by starting it.

Regards,
Severin
