Now I'm struggling with another problem. I tried to follow Kyyhkynen torrent-helper instructions http://kyyhkynen.net/stuff/mybook/torrent_helper.php ..but… result is that everytime I try to donwload torrent, Transmission crashes.
It does something right, because if I move torrent-file to watchdir-directory it tries to start downloading that file. It disappears from the folder, and it's shown in web ui. But after few secs there's error message in screen from Transmission..and it says connection lost "dismiss or cancel". Result is the same, Transmission crashes and it has to start manually again. Torrent is still in the list after restart, but if I try to resume it Transmission crashes again.
Transmission worked just fine before I did that torrent_helper mod.
Here's the steps I did..
First and second part went fine, I quess. Number 3 was hard and I don't know if I did something wrong in there.
It goes like this:
3.Check the configuration "section of the helper script. Make the WORKDIR variable point to the same directory with the variable in the /etc/init.d/transmission.sh script.
WATCHDIR and COMPLETEDIR should be some place easily accessible (that is, on a samba share) and on a drive with enough free space for the downloads.
As you can see, I have put all the directories in the default public share under a directory named Torrent."
I couldn't find file transmission.sh. from init.d..there's S90transmission.sh file..
So because of that, I didn't change any setting in any file.
Next I was suppose to do this:
"After y//ou have set up the script, test it with
- /usr/sbin/torrent_helperIf you don't get any errors the script should be working just fine. Stop it by pressing CTRL+C.
Next let's make starting and stopping the script more easy."//
I didn't get any erros, so I decided that everything is configured right. But I'm not sure anymore..
Then I did number 4 and 5..that was easy, no problems there. Then I run tests, and Transmission crashes. Can anybody help?
