Awesome! Thank you very much. I also had to install rtmp after that using the same method.

Hi.
I wanted to install Tranasmission 2.92, so I started as barmalej2 wrote.
I've done steps 1 and 2 from tutorial at the tof of this topic, but I had to do this manualy lib by lib.
Then I wanted to make a shortcut, and I figured, that I use MrDinis compilation.
So I've downloaded the package and I've put it into root.
Than I ran it and the outcome is:
root@nsa310:~# funpkg -i Transmission-2.92-arm-2.txz
Scanning Transmission-2.92-arm-2.txz ...
#
# Transmission is a cross-platform and open-source BitTorrent client.
#
# Version: 2.92 (14714)
# Homepage: https://www.transmissionbt.com/
#
# Compiled by: Mr Dini
Installing Transmission-2.92-arm-2
root@nsa310:~#

Then I tryed to start it
root@nsa310:~# /ffp/start/transmission.sh start
-sh: /ffp/start/transmission.sh: Permission denied
So I removed it
funpkg -r Transmission-2.92-arm-2.txz
and installed it again, and the outcome is te same.
Obviusly I've done something not wright.

How should I do it to work?

Hi!

Seems like, I simply forgot to give execute permission to the start script... ASAP, I will change that...

You Can give x permission manually with this command:

Code: Select all

chmod +x /ffp/start/transmission.sh
Thanks nas-central the lot of help! :)

Don't do this Mr. Dini. Enable or disable service autostart is and should be user side action. All should be disabled by default except critical ones-sshd for example.
For one time running, run interpreter should be specified, in this case shell for shell scripts:

Code: Select all

sh /ffp/start/transmission.sh start

Yes, my packages with start script are disabled by default, except the Transmission packages. Because it requestedby alot of user and I thought, why not? This package Can't cause big problems, like reboots, it just have one error, the dependancie missig error,but it Can be solved by running the script.

But if You say, I won't do it! :)

Yes, I know that. I am not totally noob in linux. :D

BTW: is there a way to execute a shell script, or a binary without root user and with mount option noexec?

Mr. Dini, this is not requirement, just a proposal. You have right to do whatever you want. I just suggesting to use the same practice, which is used on standard linux distros.

Code: Select all

sh /ffp/start/transmission.sh start

This command more likely was addressed to Bohr, illiustrating that even root user needs to know how to run scripts, when executable bit is not set.

Don't know. Never dealed with such situation. Google is your friend.
http://superuser.com/questions/728127/w ... es-on-rhel
However, when a script (a text file that begins with she-bang line; i.e., a line that begins with #!) is given to some shells (bash), it will run the executable named on that line (e.g., /usr/bin/perl) and connect the content of the script file to the stdin of that executable, which may not be on that drive.

Hi guys.

I've a problem with Transmission 2.92:
After installing it worked just fine for some time. Suddenly I can't add any torrent files to downloading.
Restarting Transmission and NSA310 didn't help.
So I uninstalled it and installed it angain and the result is the same.
So I uninstalled it and started version from Zyxel packages: 2.82zypkg002 and this works normaly.

I'd rather use current version than 2.82.
So what should I do to make 2.92 work as it worked before?

Find that guy, who sabotaged version 2.92 and punish him :lol:
Then force him to enable logging of transmission-daemon and reproduce problematic situation and/or at least paste any error outputs you are getting with 2.92.

Nice. Haven't thhought of it... :o

To get logs I reinstalled 2.92 and... it works, but when adding new torrent it doesn't ask about location of downloadeded content any more.
It's strange, because I've used the same settings.json file.
Is it possible to turn this on?

How do you add torrents (magnet links?). Via WEB interface or some external client is used?
