General :: Configure RTorrent To Stop Downloading After Certain File Size

Aug 26, 2010

I am looking for a way to configure rTorrent to stop downloading all torrents after they have downloaded x amount. For example, specify 15mb and as soon as the torrent reaches that size have it finish downloading the pieces it has requested and then start seeding partially completed. The reason for this is I'm trying to come up with a way to build ratio on a site where torrents are added very fast and at a very high frequency.

I download and add the torrents to rTorrent automatically via RSS, but I only want to download a small amount and seed that small piece while there are still a lot of people in the swarm (swarm drops off very quickly) and come out with a positive ratio from that small piece, beating the ratio clock so to speak. I thought it would be an interesting all be it somewhat impractical exercise in shell scripting, if rTorrent can be hooked into like that, documentation is sparse in some areas.

Ubuntu Networking :: Rtorrent Killing Network Whether Downloading Or Not

Jul 8, 2011

I use Ubuntu 10.04 server as a base for my media center, with rtorrent as my download program. I've had to move into a smaller place where I don't have direct control over the network, and where we have a vanishingly poor DSL connection. When I start up rtorrent, every computer on the network starts having dramatic slowdowns of internet speed, even when both my downloads and uploads are throttled to 1KBps, which is as low as rtorrent will go. Unfortunately, as I said, I don't have direct access to the router. The IT guy says my media center "is sending requests to all the computers on the network like crazy". How he knows that, I don't know, nor do I know exactly what he means.

But it is only when I have rtorrent running, even when it's only running 1k each way. It was my intention to test whether or not running utorrent on my Windows box had the same effect, but it's telling me "an attempt was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions" on all trackers, which I've also been unable to resolve. It may or may not be symptomatic of the same issue, but the UI of rtorrent is painfully slow. As in, I push the down arrow, go make myself a sandwich and watch some telly, and maybe when I'm done it's selected the next torrent. I used to use Transmission, but it used more resources and interfered with watching shows.

Ubuntu :: What Msg Files Are / How To Stop Them From Downloading

Nov 14, 2010

I've been using PAN for quite some time - recently installed 0.133 from the Ubuntu software centre. Worked fine for a while, no issue. Then, a week or so, it started downloading .msg files in company with the binary files I was getting. Sometimes one .msg file for one binary, sometimes quite a few. It seems to have some correlation to the size of the binary, that is the larger the binary, the greater the number of .msg files were downloaded.This morning, it would ONLY download .msg files. I could see the decoded binary in the PAN viewer pane, but it isn't present on my system. I have made NO changes to any configuration files, other than installing the recommended updates.

How do I correct this?Can anyone tell me what these .msg files are, and how to stop them from downloading?Are there as-good or better newsreaders out there that I can/should try?

General :: Configure Ssh To Stop Requiring Public/private Key Auth?

Dec 29, 2009

I configured ssh on one of my servers to require public/private key authentication and deny access to login requests not using a public/private key. Now I need to unconfigure that,but I can't remember how I did it. I've looked through ssh_config and sshd_config, and nothing rings a bell. Googling only tells me how to enable public/private key authentication, not how to require it or stop requiring it.

OpenSUSE :: RTorrent - Apache Error Log Fills With File Not Found

Dec 3, 2010

I've just checked my apache error log and it's filled with this:
[error] [client] File does not exist: /srv/www/htdocs/announce
Every 8 minutes or so.

I'm running rTorrent as daemon on same machine, and I suspect it's trying to access something like http://localhost/announce. But that's just my guess, is it some misconfiguration of rTorrent, and how do I fix that? Or should I just ignore all those errors.

General :: Downloading All Links In An XML File?

May 26, 2011

I am, as the forum title suggests, new to linux and to programming and having trouble figuring out how to do this.I have a very large XML file with a lot of information in it. I'm trying to get a single tag out of the file, each of these tags contains a single web link and I want to download the file at every single one of those links. I really don't know how to do this.My thought, though its probably not the most efficient or correct way, was to use VIM to search the document and somehow extract all of this one particular tag and then use wget on the links.

General :: Downloading A RAR File From Mediafire Using WGET

Jul 19, 2011

Example: [url]

This was what I tried...wget -A rar [-r [-l 1]] <mediafireurl>

That is to say, I tried with and without the recursive option. It ends up downloading an HTML page of a few KB in size, while what I want is in the range 90-100 MB and RAR.

What happens with MediaFire for those who may not be aware, is that it first says

Processing Download Request...

This text after a second or so turns into the download link and reads

Click here to start download..

How to write a proper script for this situation.

General :: Configure Kde 4 To Resize Windows To Half Desktop Size When Moved To Side Of Screen?

Feb 7, 2010

I have just noticed a nice feature in Windows 7 - when you drag a window to the edge of the screen (the mouse pointer must touch the edge), windows offers you to resize the window to exactly half of the screen size. This is actually very handy on the wide screen monitors.

Is it possible (and how) to configure Kde 4 to do the same thing?

General :: Curl -K Command Outputs Weird Symbols Instead Of Downloading URL From File?

May 16, 2011

I'm on Ubuntu 11.04. I have read around about how to use curl to download a list of URLs from a text file, and everyone says to use Code:curl -K URLlist.txt. This is what the curl man page says as well. However, for even a simple file with one URL, this command outputs a bunch of weird symbols for me instead of downloading the file.For example, I have a text file "test.txt" with one line in the following format:

url = ""
I use the curl command to download this file:

General :: Limit On File Size - Doesn't Allow User To Create File Which Are Greater Than 100Kb

Jun 13, 2011

I was just testing specifying limit on file size to a user and have added the following to /etc/security/limits.conf bob soft fsize 100 This basically should have said not to allow bob to create anyfile greater than 100Kb in size.

But the interesting thing is, if bob already has any file which is greater than 100Kb in size, it even doesn't allow to log him into the system both from console and SSH. Also nothing is logged in logs.. How do I configure it so that, bob can login to the system even though he has any file greater than 100Kb (but doesn't allow him to create file which are greater than 100Kb) ??

General :: Different File Size After Copy

Feb 27, 2010

Firstly, I did perform a search on this problem in these forums, but didn't quite get what I was looking for. So I hope I don't yelled at for making a duplicate post. So I used rsync to backup my webroot to another nix machine. du -hs gave me 1.3 G on the source machine and 1.1 G on the backup machine. I tried to compare the individual files and noticed a trend. The files on backup machine were always smaller than the files on source machine. The source uses SATA drive, destination uses IDE. So this time I rsynced locally to another folder on the source machine. Same size anomaly. So i did a simple cp file ~/file and same size anomaly. So it's not a rsync issue.

I took a file and ran md5sum on both, the source file and destination file. To my surprise, even though the file size was different, they had the same md5sum. Now, let it be known that the source machine is a production server and the dir i rsynced was being used, serving pages to the web. I googled about this and came up with stuff like open descriptors and holes. I don't understand this stuff and was wondering if this was really the case. What are those if it is the case? And my backup copy is 100% identical right? There are thousands of files and I ran md5sum only on couple. Can I take comfort that when time comes, I can restore using my backup without any problems?

General :: Stop The Rc.local File To Be Loaded At Startup?

Apr 29, 2011

I was messing around with my newly installed Archlinux, in a virtual machine (thankfully not my main computer) and now I cannot boot up. The issue is, I read that I could add commands in the rc.local file so that they would be automatically executed after booting up... so, I added the "pacman -Syu" command there, but it usually asks for a confirmation to continue, and that's why I think it is getting stuck there (it gets stuck just after running the daemons).

So, is there a way to stop the rc.local file to be loaded at startup?
