Hi all, I am new to this forum and to Drobo products, having only just received my Drobo FS yesterday morning.
I have been searching this forum to find useful information on what I can do and add to my Drobo FS to get it doing stuff that I want and stuff that I didnt realise I wanted to do (if that makes sense?!?!).
I have just seen that there is an app called Transmission Daemon that is very much the sort of thing that I am looking for, is there any other apps that dont apear on the Drobo web site that would be worth me investigating?
Also, could someone point me towards a dummies guide to the apps that are on offer so that I can see which ones would be of use to me?
The order is important, though. First lighttpd, then php, and finally rtorrent.
If the link in DroboAdmin does not work, it means that lighttpd needs to be restarted for the rtorrent configuration to kick in. It means that probably lighttpd has been installed after rtorrent, since I made sure that if rtorrent was installed after lighttpd it would make lighttpd reload its configuration.
I have a version of apache 2 installed on my drobo and managed to get your compile of rTorrent working to some extend. I’m getting this error message in the logger when starting rTorrent. Does it appear in your version or have I introduced it by using apache? Google seems to pointing to the later.
rTorrent is compiled with incorrect version of xmlrpc-c library, without i8 support. Version must be >= 1.11. Some functionality will be unavailable.
Hmm, so I take it that your torrents are displaying the correct size? For me they are, I think, a magnitude of 10 off; so a torrent that is 4564 mb is displayed as 456.4 mb. I thought this was to do with the xmlrpc-c library as the call that is displaying that error is a, paraphrasing, “get size of a megabyte” one.
None of my torrents seem to be working either but this may be related to my version of apache and mod_scgi. I did give a go at compiling rtorrent but got stuck when compiling curl and it not being able to find the openssl librarys. I might give it another go later, maybe I screwed up someting in the earlier steps.
Yup, I just downloaded a small torrent and sizes were reported correctly. Free space shows crazy values, but that is kind of expected due to thin provisioning.
I may have not stressed this enough, but yeah, the DRI-provided version of apache does not have a functioning mod_scgi. That is the reason why I had to get lighttpd and php compiled before tackling rtorrent.
