Re: [HOW-TO] Install Transmission on newer SDK / Firmware
PS4: I decided to format my hard and reset my device.. now I have two transmission clients running.. one from this thread and one coming with the device itself..
What is strange is that I cannot open torrent files from my hard drive and I can only open a limited number of torrents with URLs.. so far only ones from the pirate bay.. I cannot open private tracker's torrents so far.
When trying to follow your steps I end up not finding the 'volumes' folder in /tmp/hdd..
I only have the following:
Can you advise me what to do?
I am using POHD2
having the latest firmware
using wired connection (DHCP enabled)
Transmission is constantly off when I try to start it from within the Setup/Network/Transmission dialog..
Note: I managed to find the script I copied in '/tmp/usbmounts/sdb1/trans1.sh', but that didn't help much as obviously the script is using folders pointing to your original paths..
PS: It seems the script worked from that location after all.. at first I made the mistake going in the folder and trying to run 'trans1.sh' directly.. once I used '/tmp/usbmounts/sdb1/trans1.sh' it worked..
PS2: Although I can access Transmission from my browser the setup is still showing it as not running.. could it be due to not yet starting a torrent? (I am still trying to make out how to add the task..)
PS3: Transmission is still showing as 'off' in the setup area, clicking open from the browser config of transmission results in no action at all and when I try to directly open the torrent file from my internal HDD using the file manager I am told that the BT client is not running.
First of all this is the HD Forum section. The HD2 has already a built-in Transmission Client so there's no need to install it again.
For it to work you need an internal HDD which was formatted in the Player.
So for you now to get it work:
1. safe-mode reflash the firmware r5440
2. format the HDD via SETUP -> SYSTEM -> FORMAT
3. after the reboot goto SETUP -> NETWORK -> Transmission and switch it on
4. connect to the web interface and add your torrents.
