Transmission Daemon

I'm running the latest version of Raspbian Wheezy on my Raspberry Pi Model B. I had two SD cards, and I got transmission daemon working on my 8GB sd card, however, I am no longer able to boot to the visual UI because when I tried to get a torrent downloading to my hard drive, it wouldn't save there and saved on the card itself. It filled the entire memory causing the pic to only display dashes after the typical "Linux scrolling text boot". My other SD card, a 4gb micro SD card is working fine, however I am unable to get transmission daemon installed. I've attempted "sudo apt-get install transmissiom-daemon" several times to ensure it was entirely installed, and at the end it does specify that 0 new installations occurred. When I type in" sudo service transmission-daemon stop", it says the pic was unable to find that service.

Well reinstall the system, thats the best option for non-booting problem. Then make sure you have valid config, and that it is saved correctly (daemon saves it at any shutdown).
Make sure transmission daemon in not running:

Code: Select all

sudo service transmission-daemon stop
Edit the config:

Code: Select all

sudo vim /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json

Code: Select all

"download-dir": "/media/pendrive",
"incomplete-dir": "/media/pendrive",
Of course, replace paths with your HDD mount points.
Save config and run daemon again:

Code: Select all

sudo service transmission-daemon start
Its done. You might want to use the web UI - it makes config even easier. Good luck.
