Transmission 1.72 which is reported to fix the "Assertion failed: (tv->tv_usec >= 0)" is available on Optware now
Seems it's working alright on both bluering and whitelight
So now I can take down the link of 1.61
ipkg update ipkg upgrade ldconfig /opt/etc/init.d/S90optware restart # transmission-remote -si VERSION Daemon version: 1.72 (8702) RPC version: 6 RPC minimum version: 1
that's very good news, indeed
i've installed Transmission but i wonder how i can access to my download folder, it seems i dont haveenough access … ?
# chown www-data:www-data <DL-dir> -R # chmod 755 <DL-dir> -R
Thanks for the help but i'm a newbie : is that an SSH command or what ?
(i'm on a Mac, i use the Terminal)
Oh, sorry about that. Yes, those are shell commands that set right ownership (‘www-data` - user and `www-data` group; that’s the samba user) and mode ('ReadWriteXecute' for the owner, 'r-x' for the group and others; you don't really need it, I guess) for your dl dir.
You should google for such trivial matters, there's lot of info for linux newbies there. I can tell, as used to be one of them not too long ago :)
You need to know where the downloaded files is, then replace "<DL-dir>" with that directory.
grep download-dir $HOME/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json
Personally I always create a separate account rather than using root.
Yes, a special account for transmission.
It's bad practice to run everything as root.
Programs that talk to the outside (wicked mean) world should not have root privileges….
If such a program is hacked it will also mean it has root privileges….
On the other hand….
What is there to be found on your system?
BTW… bzhou is someone to be taken serious…. always….
i'm taking it seriously, i just don't know how to do all this : create an account, make transmission this account, giving the right privileges to the right folder… thats just mess to me, even after googling… :/
the correct command line to reset Transmission file permissions on a WhiteLight Mybook is :
chown -R nobody:nobody /shares/Public/WWW/TR-Downloads chmod -R 777 /shares/Public/WWW/TR-Downloads
Note that if you installed the Transmission FeaturePack from the FeaturePack installer,
the script is provided by default and is planned to run every 10 minutes…
could you tell more precisely when the chown error occurs?
what do you try to do ?
How have you installed Transmission ? using the Featurepack manager?
if you can'ot opent the WWW folder , you also may try the following commands :
chown -R nobody:nobody /shares/Public/WWW
Yes, using the Feature Pack
I'm connecting to the HD with my Mac, i can see the Public folder, can open all folder but the WWW folder that Transmission 'created' and seems to use.
So i can download with Transmission but i can't use the files !
Ok is there anyway i can check what user Tranmission use ?
And that someone tell me what Tranmission Should use ?
And how to fix it ?
And what the permission should be for the WWW folder and how to fix it ?
nlx: try this to go to the folder
and to see the privileges:
ls -lah /shares/Public/WWW/
basic command list:
ls - to list files in a directory:
cd - change directory (navigate to some directory):
cp - copy a file:
mv - move a file (also used to rename files):
rm - remove a file:
mkdir - make directory:
pwd - show your current location:
whoami - find out which user you are:
wget - to download some url content to the current directory
yum - To install any packages from the urls
Has anyone been having troubles with this version on a blue light mbw? I was using mine for 6 months or so as a download server with no problems (limiting the download slots to 1 or 2 only using a script I hacked together), but since upgrading to 1.72 I keep getting freeze ups on the mbw. I usually only download during my ISP's offpeak times (1am-7am) so I'm not around when it actually freezes, and since I am using a ramdisk, I lose any logs that might be left after the restart. (have to pull the plug as nothing responds).
I'm wondering if there was an increase in memory usage with this version that is causing the problems - and I see that 1.73 (which isn't out yet) has a whole bunch of memory related fixes in place. If others have it working fine, can anyone suggest a way to debug this problem? (I'm thinking that running the daemon in the foreground in an ssh session from another machine might help as I'd probably see any error messages that occur before the thing freezes - any other suggestions?)
It seems to be: http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/2326
Clearing these folders helped on my MBWE WhiteLight:
I am trying to set the value for maximum simultaneous downloads, but I can't find the parameter on the web… does anybody know the correct parameter name, and indeed have a list of all the supported parameters for the settings.json file?
