Deluge share ratio not changing

Hello. Excuse my ignorance about the finer points of torrent sharing but I'm getting concerned about my share ratio. To give context: I have Deluge set up on my raspberry pi (which also doubles as a NAS). I use a thin client on my desktop to add torrents etc. but can also use the web interface. My i...

Re: Deluge is stopping after a while

For my penny's worth I was beating my head against the wall with Deluge not downloading anything. Edited the core.conf file as suggested above and Deluge was up and running within seconds of restart! Thank you! :D

Re: File Permissions Headache

Thank you asandford. I'll give NFS a whirl then. I'll still keep samba though as I'll be wanting to have my Windows computer connected too and it makes sense as both are MS.

Cheers :D

File Permissions Headache

Ok, I hope that I can explain this clearly enough... :cry: I have my Pi set up as a file server using samba (created using one of the many guides that exist out there). The folders that are samba shares are now mounted upon boot on my desktop that runs Ubuntu. I use cif with credentials to mount the...

Re: Memory/Network Recommendation for Pi NAS

Thanks for the responses Dougie et al. I've got the shares formatted as ext4 so no worries there, but didn't know about NFS to speed things up. I'll have to look in to that :) In summation it looks like it doesn't matter much what model I use then. Aside from the extra cost of a USB Ethernet adaptor...

Memory/Network Recommendation for Pi NAS

Hi, I wanted to ask for some advice on what model Pi I should be using for a NAS? At the moment the one I have shares files across the network but I'd also be looking to do some streaming of video/audio to an XMBC media centre over the home network. I ask because I have an old model B pi (with only ...

Re: GPIO Electronics Advice - Voltage Spike Protection

Hello Paul, Thanks for the heads-up about suppressing the RF :) . I don't see it as a serious problem any more though as I only register about 5mV spike of PD now I have the opto-isolator. The unit will be a metre or two away from the Pi so any RF effects should be minimal. However if I decide to pu...

Re: GPIO Electronics Advice - Voltage Spike Protection

Hurrah! :D I made my own opto-isolator from a LED (with current limiting resistor) and a LDR. When I attached this directly to where I needed to measure the PD I still got the voltage jump (albeit smaller). However when I used a length of co-axial and placed the unit about a metre away I could consi...

Re: GPIO Electronics Advice - Voltage Spike Protection

Argh! Got an opto-isolator (the 4n25 to be precise) and set it up so that the output of my LED (mentioned above) is rectified, smoothed and put across the opto's input. When I tested it with a 4.5v supply for the output it works well and I see the output climb in line with the input up to the Vmax a...

Many thanks for the replies. An opto-isolator it'll have to be then :D

GPIO Electronics Advice - Voltage Spike Protection

Hello, I am interfacing my Pi via I2C to an analogue to digital IC on the Quick2Wire analogue board (pity Q2W isn't being supported as well as it was but that's another topic for discussion...). I have the board working fine, it all tests OK and detects voltages as it should. The real issue is what ...

Re: Can't get Python to run with Pygame

Sorry my mistake, issue 1 :S I'm running Python 2.6.6 if that helps. I aim to try out wheezy, puppy etc. once my order of sd cards comes in the post. I was going to try them all out then choose which is best for me. I'll give the sound driver update a go and see if I can start listening to music. BT...

Can't get Python to run with Pygame

:evil: Been very frustrating over the last week. I have experience with C++ so I have been fiddling with Python to try learning a new language but keeping hitting a wall. I've been trying to run Python (both on command line and through JPE on the Debian OS) to run the example 'bat and ball' program ...
