I am trying to get rTorrent to start on boot or at least as a process that runs in the background and doesn't rely on an active user session.
I have Ubuntu server with minimal install, samba server, ftp server, soon to be web server...
No windows env / x server at all
I am trying to get rtorrent to run so that I can use this as a dl server too.
No user is ever logged into the box - i always login via ssh from my mac.
rTorrent is working fine when I run it in a terminal, have setup the folder it monitors for .torrent files, etc etc
I have added the script to /etc/init.d/rtorrentinit
Run the following command
update-rc.d rtorrent defaults
When I try running the rTorrent
sudo /etc/init.d/rtorrentinit start
I get the error
cannot find readable session directory from config /home/torrnt/.rtorrent.rc. check permissions
The Permissions as far as I can see are correct! So what is the problem?
Please let me know if you need any more info
