Suggestion: Use multi-core par2

Asked by bofphile on 2009-11-16

Could LottaNZB use the multi-core par2 instead of the single threaded version of the program ? It is available here: http://chuchusoft.com/par2_tbb/download.html

Hi bofphile,

the LottaNZB package doesn't include par2. We're not responsible for building it. Instead, LottaNZB just uses the par2 program that's installed on the user's machine, which is usually the one from the repositories (such as http://packages.ubuntu.com/de/karmic/par2). I guess you would need to get in touch with the maintainers of the par2 package.

Of course, nothing prevents you from compiling par2 with multi-core support on your own and replacing the default version.

Sorry that I can't help you with this one.

Regards,
Severin
