#4217 closed Bug (worksforme)

TRANSMISSION_HOME ignored during start up

Reported by: nickh Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 2.22
Severity: Normal Keywords: TRANSMISSION_HOME


If you set TRANSMISSION_HOME before starting transmission-daemon, it is ignored and the user's home is used instead. If there is no settings.json it is created in ~/.config/transmission-daemon/ along with the other directories.

See discussion at

Using v2.22 on ClearOS 5.2 (based on CentOS 5.5)

Full init script is attached. Note the file /etc/sysconfig/transmission-daemon was empty during my testing.
