rtorrent failed to start 1.05.04_V-WDLXTV-Live-   

Postby aft3rgl0w » Sat Dec 24, 2011 11:08 am

Hi all.
First time i flashed my wdtv live i used "1.03.49_V-WDLXTV-Live- [flash]" and i had correctly set up rtorrent as explained in wiki and it was working fine (i had also commented out the #encoding_list = UTF-8,UTF8,UTF-16,UTF16)line.
today i simply downloaded and flashed "1.05.04_V-WDLXTV-Live- [flash]"
rtorrent didnt work so i said ill clean out conf/rtorrent.rc as well as delete .mnt file and rtorrent directory and mainyl start from scratch again.

i have tried every step of the wiki and i still cant get it to work.
when i click enable rtorrent on webend i get the following error messages:

config saved val:key => (PLUGIN_WEBDIRS,mt-daapd|/usr/share/mt-daapd,nzbgetweb|/usr/share/nzbgetweb,umsp|/usr/share/umsp)
config saved val:key => (PLUGIN_WEBDIRS,mt-daapd|/usr/share/mt-daapd,nzbgetweb|/usr/share/nzbgetweb,umsp|/usr/share/umsp,rtorrent|/usr/share/rutorrent)
S96rtorrent: Starting bittorrent: rtorrent
S96rtorrent: executing deleted console workaround
S96rtorrent: rtorrent failed to start!!!

basically i have my .mnt file on root of the hdd. the hdd is also mounted as /tmp/mnt/B03CB1C43CB1863E also created the rtorrent directory on that hdd and at some point it created me 4 directories inside that.(.incomplete,.session,finished,torrents) permissions seem ok (777).

my /conf/rtorrent.rc basically looks like this:
# Default directory to save the downloaded torrents.
directory = /tmp/mnt/B03CB1C43CB1863E/rtorrent/

session = /tmp/mnt/B03CB1C43CB1863E/rtorrent/

#encoding_list = UTF-8,UTF8,UTF-16,UTF16 ( i tried uncommenting the line too not sure how it should be on this FW level????....)

now on webend config
i have ticked "enable rtorrent" and RTORRENT_DIR=/tmp/mnt/B03CB1C43CB1863E/ (do i need to have /tmp/mnt/B03CB1C43CB1863E/rtorrent instead)

i also tried flashing with the 3 firmware files on usb and S00custom-options. (the usb is the same used a few days ago to flash previous fw and its hard formatted FAT32.)

basically my file looks like:

config_tool -c RTORRENT=ON
config_tool -c RTORRENT_DIR=/tmp/mnt/B03CB1C43CB1863E/

lastly when i flash with S00custom-options, do i just put the file at the root of the drive or i have also have to have it withing the "extra" directory and then place that at the root of the usb drive? ( i tried both as i wasnt sure)
well if you got that far and have an idea then thanks much and merry xmas :)

The same was here, I have managed this issue by deleting the rtorrent.lock file in rtorrent/.session folder.
After this it was started normally.
