Description

Hi,

An user with not much experience in "init.d" will find it quite useful to see some info how to start transmission automatically on a headless. Best place for this is IMHO the site http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/Scripts/initd .

For starting transmission on a headless machine automatically: chown root:root /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon update-rc.d /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon defaults

These commands were needed, additonally to the already existing commands at the wiki site, to bring the script to automatically run at boot on a "ubuntu 8.10 server".

Hmm, it is better to write the commands more readable

For starting transmission on a headless machine automatically:

chown root:root /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon

update-rc.d /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon defaults

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

init scripts are very much dependant of the platform they're run on and I won't replicate documentation that shouldn't be on a BitTorrent? client's wiki. But I do appreciate your feedback!

If you got links to a decent guide or official documentation, I'll consider linking to it.
