I am having the same problem as Silviu:
getting "No space left on device ERROR" for anything.
md0 filled up 100%,
now cannot login to UI, neither upgrade.

I dont mind resetting everything (as long as I dont delete files).
but I am no linux expert, what should I do?
You can add a watch folder

Start up putty and type this in the terminal (copy paste)

cd ~/.config/transmission-daemon/

then paste :
nano settings.json

Then add these lines: (dont forget the commas!!)

"watch-dir": "/shares/Public/whateverthefoldernameofyourtorrentwatchfoldershouldbe/",
"watch-dir-enabled": true,


Then save: Control-O and exit with Control-X

Then go to the package manager and there is an option to STOP transmission. Then restart it and it worked for me!!
Adding functionality on Transmission Watchdir and bandwidth scheduling, among others

Sašo Ledinek
Is it possible to add functionality like
http://kyyhkynen.net/stuff/mybook/torrent_helper.php

Now, "transmission" doesn't support a watch folder like for example "rtorrent" does. Neither does its' daemon version provide bandwidth scheduling.
I have put together a shell script to achieve these. Also, it is able to move completed downloads to a desired directory after seeding them to a desired ratio and shut down transmission when it is not used, in order to free up some memory.
So, it is a bit like "transmission_watchdog", only better ;)

Hi, apparently , you have disk space in all partitions.
if you want to be sure, you could upgrade the firmware, which should put back the whole system as if it was new ( without loosing data).

hi,
any way that the script can be edited to change the owner or file permissions?
my share keeps disappearing.

thanks
teinturman :
first of all, have you changed the default download folder top something else ? I recommend not to change the download folder.

the script is exactly :
/proto/SxM_webui/fpkmgr/fpks/Transmission/TR-watchdog

it gives 664 permissions to nobody:jewab

I´ve got the same freezing issue...
Trying to upgrade to 2.5 but the FeaturesPack Manager keeps saying that we´re still on 1.97
Uninstall and reinstall transmission and noticed that the log said that there is version 1.97
When I browse, it says that the version is 2.5
When I went back to FeaturesPack Manager... still says that it´s version 1.97.

teinturman :
hi, this is normal, the version of transmission that is installed by the feature pack is always the latest. as the latest is 2.5 , version of transmission is 2.5.
the version of this feature pack is 1.97, and this version number is not related to transmission version.
to check the version of transmission that you have, you can go to the preferences settings , from the transmission user interface.

If i'll let transmission to download with more than cca. 0.7 - 1Mb/s in couple minutes the nas will freeze and become inaccessible (thow the hdd you can still hear it making it's regular noise). Doesn't matter if you have only one active torrent or more, matters the total downloading speed
To evoid the problem i use the 'turtle mode' limiting the download to 300KiB/s (this way it's never freezing), but it's iritaiting to use so small spseds.

Do you have a solution?

Hi. This version freeze web browser when download just one torrent. You say "don't overload it with more of 1 or 2 torrent" and "Remember this is a consumer drive not very powerful with no real cooling a recipe for disaster."... but with precedent version of Transmission, with this same "consumer drive" i had download 4 or 5 torrents at same time, with no-limits download speed....WITHOUT PROBLEMS.
The problem is not in the drive, but in this version of Transmission the freeze the werb browser.
Please.... fix it or make available the old version of Trasmission that was very stable.
Many Thanks

teinturman : there are a lot of releases of transmission recently, latest is 2.50. is it this one that you are using ? uninstall/reinstall will alwayes install the lates.

The solution to Transmission locking up the MBWE is to reduce the amount of connections it can connect to, I suggest less than 60. Mine still locks up but much less frequently, also don't over load it with torrents - only load 1 or 2 maximum even if they are only seeding and no one is connected to them. Only load more when you remove the others. Remember this is a consumer drive not very powerful with no real cooling a recipe for disaster.

Teinturman - any solution to the problem of freezing? I can't use transmission with this problem

teinturman : Hi,
some other users have reported similar issue, it looks like if you lower the download speed, of transmission, transmission works better.
maybe you can try this ( from the web interface of transmission )

hello,
a couple of days ago i changed the download folder to only /public/. it all worked perfectly until today, public dissapeared. I tried it with another folder and the same thing. i think it happend after i pressed manually.... pls help. thank you


Hi,
/Public/ was not a good idea , please use a subfolder of Public, and also, it should be a dedicated folder for Transmission...

i have released a new version for the Whitelight.
i have changed the permissions that are applied by the script.... new permissions are 664 ( instead of 744)


if you relaunch the script, it should change back the permissions...

hi, teinturman

i cant delete any file in TR-Downloads
how can i fix it

thanks in advane

teinturman :
Hi,
there should be an option to launch a script in the Feature pack menu. normally, this script changes the permissions to ensure that files can be deleted.

if ever it does not work, you can also launch the following command :
chmod -R 777 /shares/Public/WWW/TR-downloads

Hi, I have a small problem. I had transmission running with no problem on version 1.91 and then I upgraded to v1.96 as it said 'recommended' in description. Obviously, it went wrong for me and now I'm unable to get it working again.

After that unsuccesful instalation, I played around with it a little bit and I have to say I only know few commands in this Linux environment. So, first, I tried to install newest 2.31 (I think it is) version using 'ipkg install transmission' command, then started daemon, but there was 5 processes and it wasn't working, then I deleted file /opt/bin/transmission-daemon in hope it will somehow reinstal whole client when atempt to install it again from optware package, but unsuccesfuly ... this is what I get now ... please help ... thank you

Transmission 2.31

I'm also having issues with 2.31 on my White light. Seems there's an issue with private trackers.

I found a thread here that seems to have identified a patch, though I'm lost at how to apply it (don't know where libtransmission is, nor how to apply patches in Linux): http://mybookworld.wikidot.com/forum/t-368534#post-1185878

If there is no way to downgrade version, then the patch might be the way to go.

teinturman : if there is an issue with the 2.31 version, unfortunately, the only solution is to wait for the release of the next version of ipkg transmission... , then uninstall /reinstall the feature pack manager, it should install the latest version available in ipkg.
Is my featurepacks manager installed correctly?

Hi,

I just installed the featurepack manager, and I've not been able to install any packs.

The gui at http://nas/fpkmgr only has 4 options
- EmailReport
- FeaturePacks
- Mybook_Infos
- Security


The featurepacks link only allows for an installation of featurepacks from a URL.

Is this correct? the instruction pages seem to say that there should be a list of packages I can install... maybe the initial installation had a problem?
Any assistance appreciated!
teinturman : Feature pack manager is perfectly installed. to install more feature packs, simply click the "Flower button" at the top of the feature pack manager screen ...

I reinstall the feature packs after a firmware update, and the I installed the transmission, I noticed that is the latest release and it is not stable form my White light. So I tried uninstalling transmission an install from web the 1.92 version.
Starting the process I got an error of llibevent 1.4 /opt/bin/transmission-daemon: error while loading shared libraries: libevent-1.4.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory , I have libevent 2.0 installed.
What can I do to have back 1.91 o 1.92 version of transmission installed?
Thanks
teinturman : there has been a new version of libevent, which is no longer compatible with the latest transmission version.
as libevent is used by many other packages, it is no longer possible to install the oldest transmission version...

maybe reducing the download rate in transmission could help...

Hi,
have you tried to install optware manually?
you might have installed the Bluering instructions on the Whitelight...

==> in this case, the best is to force a firmware upograde ( use the email form if you need assistance for this .)
then, you will be able to reinstall the Feature pack manager and transmission correctly.

watched folder
34 Thursday, 07 April 2011 19:57

just read somewhere that it is possible to have a watched folder. I'm not sure if this was default or if it was a change to the config file. Maybe you have an idea?

thx

teinturman :
the current feature pack does not integrate this (yet) ...
if i implement this feature, i would do the following :
1) stop transmission ( this is an important step.)
2) modify the conf file : /root/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json with the following

"watch-dir": "\/shares\/Public\/WWW\/TR-watch",
"watch-dir-enabled": true

3) create the /shares/Public/WWW/TR-Watch

then restart transmission, and check if it is working...

Please, note that i have not tested this myself... it is only some googling info.

if you need to remotely launch torrent download, you could install AccessBook+WebServer.
this will allow you to connect remotely and securely to the transmission web interface, via https.

Solved the issue:

the correct share was /shares/MEDIA and i setted in transmission as /shares/Media: result transmission made another folder wich took from the md0 space till it filled it up.

i changed the path, i deleted wrong folder, all's ok

the results anyway:

"also check , where dod transmission downloads files? are you sure they are downloaded in the PUBLIC\WWW\TR-Downloads folder? have you cahnged anything in the configuration ?"

I changed the download path to: Shares\Media (I made another share folder)
Then I changed the permissions: "chmod -R a+rw /shares/Media"

That's all

PS: I see that the transmission is working after installing (even with the final error of the space) following the standard download path: "shares/Public/WWW/TR-Downloads"

Could be the problemm the download path?

Tx!

teinturman :
can you try to remove some (big) files from the /shares/media folder?

do you have now more space in the md0 ?
if yes ==> the new share has not been created correctly , remove all files from this share asap..
if not ==> problem is somwhere else, search in the twonky folder, and use "du" commands to track the big files...

Hello , this is a big problem, do not reboot until it is solved !







your system partition is Full .



you need to find the big file.



you should check in the /twonky folder



on my mybook there was an enormous file in there ...



also check , where dod transmission downloads files? are you sure they are downloaded in the PUBLIC\WWW\TR-Downloads folder? have you cahnged anything in the configuration ?



you can also use this to search big folders in several locations :



du -a /twonky | sort -n -r | head -n 10
du -a /proto | sort -n -r | head -n 10
du -a /opt | sort -n -r | head -n 10

objective is to find a log file, and to delete it...

I went under feature packs and installed the last transmission, I think it was 2.12-1. Everything was going fine until i rebooted my HD. After that it seems that it doesnt boot anymore!!! Please help me, is it possible that Transmission made something to my HD? Please help!

teinturman : I do not think transmission is the real cause of the non booting... can you remember if you have done anything else ? what if you stop again , wait, then reboot again ?

If it really dont boot anymore, the only solution i see is to apply the MybookRescue tool, which will reapply a system partition... (only available on bluering and whitelight single drive )

Can you update the various versions of transmission so that the feature pack version is the same as the Transmission version? This seems obvious, no?
Thanks,

it is not as obvious as that : if i update the version number, people will see an upgrade button... and my isntall script is not able to upgrade Transmission yet... it would be a good idea, but i need to work at it...
in the mean time, people must understand that the feature pack version is not the Transmission version...
Also, i do not necessarily recommend to upgrade transmission, if it is working correctly for the user, i prefer that he stay with the working version, Transmission, sometimes release new versions with some issues...

First to congratulate FeaturePack, especially Transmission, which is what most use.

I upgraded transmission and I find that the tracker fails to discharge me, tells me that now I have a lower version?

I looked at the downloads available on this page Transmission:
http://highlevelbits.free.fr/download-MBWEW/TROLD61a/

And I see that there are 3:

Transmission.tar 17-Aug-2010 01:41 910k tar archive
Transmission_1.91a.tar 30-Mar-2010 00:07 910k tar archive
transmission_1.91-1_..> 24-Mar-2010 21:58 792k


I have several questions:

"I can install them manually with my wd white light without uninstalling the transmission that you currently have?
if I have to uninstall will I deleted the torrents that I have already downloaded? What about those who are still downloading? (Is to wait or not)

What is the version that is dated August 17, named Transmission.tar?

What is the difference between the other two versions 1.91-1 1.91ay?


Sorry for many questions, any answer is welcome!

Thanks and excuse for my English (I used the google translator, I'm Spanish)

teinturman :
hi, please, use the "flower button" to install the transmission feature pack .
to change the version of transmission, you will need to uninstall transmission,
then you will be able to select one of the 3 versions from the feature pack installer.

i do not know if your downloaded torrents or your currently downloading torrents will be kept...
the best is that you move your downloaded torrents in a secure location, and wait the end of all other downloads before you change the transmission version...


Just for info, Transmission.tar that you pointed is for version 1.61

Watchdog script
15 Friday, 28 May 2010 10:17
guest1
Just a quick note to say that I'm very happy with the feature packs manager and all its features! I have been using Transmission and the webserver for some time now, and it works great!

However, I came across one small problem (that most people will probably never encounter).
If you have a huge unzipped download (with lots of files and folders) in your 'complete' folder, the watchdog script will take a lot of time recursively resetting all the permissions. In my case, this took longer than the script's standard 10 minute interval, and I ended up with dozens of copies of the script running at the same time, eventually slowing down the disk to almost unusable. It took me quite some time to figure out what was happening.

For future versions of the watchdog script, it might be an idea to let it check if there's already a copy running?
teinturman, : Thanks for the feedback, i note this point. I do not know when i wil lhave time to implement it, but if i have opportunity, i will.

Downgrading to previous version really solved the problem!
Now everything is back to normal again.

Latest Transmission stalls my system?
7 Sunday, 14 February 2010 19:16

Hello.
Just upgraded to latest version of the Transmission feature pack and after a while (many hours perhaps) I noticed that my whitelight began to behave slooooowly. Reducing download speed improved this, and stopping Transmission completely solved it, so I know where the slowdown came from.
Today it's been completely impossible to access, even ssh access was stalling, so I had to reboot it.
Any idea of why this could be happening? Anyone else suffered this?

Previous version was working well. When I upgraded I changed my download dir to somewhere into /Datavolume, could this be the cause?

Thanks!
Santi

teinturman :
Hello,
i do not think the problem comes from a different download folder.

i think it comes from the last transmission version which is buggy for every one.
as i am not the developepr of this application ( i only provide automatic installaiton for it) , we have to wait the next version.
In the mean time, if you own a whitelight mybook, you can try to revert to a previous version, by copy pasting the following url in the System Configuration / Feature PAck menu

Hi, I have the white light version of the My Book World, but I have a little problem with the download folder. Even if I change it in the web interface of Transmission, the feature pack web interface does not show the new location, but still shows Public\WWW\TR-Downloads. To be more precise, I changed the download folder to /shares/Download, which is the default choice for the built-in download options provided by the standard firmware. I think your feature pack should better propose this folder as the default.

Anyway, it's not clear to me what the post-download script actually does and I fear it does not work properly once I changed the download folder in Trasmission but this change is not reflected in your feature pack web interface...

Thanks in advance.
Mauro.

Hi, i have released v1.8a,

I installed the transmission feature pack and am very pleased with it, what I was wondering though was how I could get at it remotely to check on torrents etc. Would I just port forward through my router to access the gui over the net?

I took a look at the code on google, but as far as I can tell it's just another front end, is it not? There is not much documentation to read there.

Teinturman :
to access remotely your transmission inteerface, you must define a password in the Feature pack menu,
then open port 9091.

9091 to another port ? is it possible ?

hello teinturman

thanks for your effort to provide us such a nice improved software.

i have a question for you.

even if my internet conection is relative good, teoreticaly I have conection at 24 mbps, the torrent file transfer is very slow.

i spoke with my internet provider and they give me an advice to change the port throgh I receive torrent file between 20000 and 60000.

this modification i did in my utorrent software and i saw an better transfer for the files.

my question is:

is it posible to change the port 9091 through which I think the transfer took place for the torrent files to another port bigger ?

what and how I can made the changes ?

I am an economist, and I supose that because the port for web server and acces is 8080 than the port for the traansmission is 9091. Is corect what I said ?

Once again thanks and congratulation for your work.

From Romania

Romeo

teinturman : Sorry, but i am not so expert in torrent downloading, My understanding is that Port 9091 was only for a client console to monitor the daemon, so it should not increase performance at all if you change it...
settings of transmission are defined in the
/root/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json

note : i do not plan to add the possibility to change ports via the user interface...

Hey,

Love the Feature Pack. Transmission also has a Remote that works great with this (http://code.google.com/p/transmission-remote-dotnet/).

Only thing I could not get to work was the Time Constraints Setting in the remote. I think this may be a feature in a newer version.


Cheers.
