Any success installing on a ReadyNAS 214 running 6.10.3?

Has anyone successfully installed SR on a ReadyNAS 214 running 6.10.3? I had it installed about a year ago, and my ReadyNAS upgraded to 6.10.0 Hotfix 2 and SR hasn’t worked since. I have tried off and on to get it working, with no success.

I sort of started from scratch today and tried to follow the directions on the How-To page step-by-step. Still no luck.

I followed the instructions to build Python 3.6.9 and install it a couple of weeks ago. Python seemed to work OK, but the install of SR would just “hang”. When I tried everything again tonight, the web UI install of SR said it was successful. However, starting SR does not work. From ssh, I see the following command running, but then it disappears and SR is not available.

/usr/local/bin/python3 /apps/sickrage/bin/ -q --daemon --nolaunch --datadir=/apps/sickrage/app-config

I ran that statement interactively (as admin) and got the following error:

$ /usr/local/bin/python3 /apps/sickrage/bin/ -q --daemon --nolaunch --datadir=/apps/sickrage/app-config
DEPRECATION: The OpenSSL being used by this python install (OpenSSL 1.0.1t  3 May 2016) does not meet the minimum supported version (>= OpenSSL 1.1.1) in order to support TLS 1.3 required by Cloudflare, You may encounter an unexpected reCaptcha or cloudflare 1020 blocks.
OpenSSL not available, please install for better requests validation: ``

I followed the link above and ran the following command (as root) with the following result:

# pip install pyopenssl

Then when I try to start SR again, I get the stuff below. Not sure where to go next. Anyone have any ideas?

Honestly its looking like unless you can install OpenSSL 1.1.1 then SR won’t run on ReadyNAS anymore, its required by a few different aspects of SR and its respective modules to run properly.

I was thinking the same thing. But have you been able to get it installed on a ReadyNAS box or emulator? I assume when you switched over to Python 3 that is when the restriction on OpenSSL went into effect? But how long has SR been using Python 3? Does that mean this probably hasn’t worked on ReadyNAS for a while?

TBH I’ve been rather distracted by covid and now the riots, i’ve got a lot that I’ve been trying to handle so haven’t had the time I thought I would to take a deeper look into this, just going to have to wait till things settle down a bit, plan was this weekend but then those riots popped off so …
