Setting up a tt-rss daemon on Arch Linux
NOTE: I originally wrote this on the tt-rss.org forums, but thought I’d post it here too.
There doesn’t seem to be support for TT-RSS on Arch Linux, particularly in creating the /etc/rc.d/ daemon. So I hacked together this:
I edited the init.d files for TT-RSS to run on Arch Linux, which uses rc.d and doesn’t have start-stop-daemon. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this so please feel free to 1. provide constructive feedback and 2. be nice
Basically following the instructions as per UpdatingFeeds but use my attached files and place in rc.d instead of init.d
* Extract tt-rss-rc.tar.gz
cp tt-rss.default /etc/default/tt-rss
cp tt-rss.rc-d /etc/rc.d/tt-rss
/bin/chmod +x /etc/rc.d/tt-rss
* If you want Tiny Tiny RSS update daemon to start when you computer start :
Add to "DAEMONS=(... tt-rss ...)"
* Once all this done, you can use this command line to start the update daemon :
* And this command line to stop the update daemon :
Been working great for me for a couple weeks.
