Excellent, that did the trick!
And so easy too! :)
Before I go on, I want to mention that once I've got this running, i'll add a proper page to this wiki how to set it up in a good fashion, and not in the slice&dice way I'm using now ;)
So, I've got the transmission-deamon running now. (Checked it with 'top')
FYI, I'm loosely following this page.
There are 3 pieces of software working on the torrents:
1. transmissiond. This is the actual workhorse that's downloading and uploading a torrent. If you run "ps" in a console you will see several of them working (if you have torrents running). Every time a torrent starts, one of these comes along and takes charge of it.
2. transmission_watchdog. This one runs periodically, usually every 30 minutes, and is in charge of moving torrents around the queues (from "queued" to "active" to "done").
3. transmission.cgi this is the actual web interface and is the thing you use to see your torrents and control them.
So, the first one is taken care of.
Now the transmission_watchdog.
Also from the page mentioned earlier in my post:
transmission_watchdog cares for queue processing and should be run every 30 minutes with cron. /opt/etc/crontab entry should look like:
# m h dom mon dow user command
*/30 * * * * admin nice transmission_watchdog
The only crontab-ish thing I could find was an empty file at /var/spool/cron/crontabs, is this the file where I should but aforementioned entry? For now I did that, dunno if it's good or bad.
I hope somebody can help me out in this respect.
And now for step 3, the web-interface. I've installed 'haserl', according to Martin hinner's pages, so cgi should be working, right?
Transmission.cgi is located in /opt/transmission.cgi
So, how can I access transmission.cgi through my browser? http://<IP-of-Mybook>/cgi-bin/transmission.cgi didn't work :P
Thanks for all the help!
