Rtorrent - weird problems
I’m trying out rtorrent instead of enhanced-ctorrent, just for the convenience of the gui and manageability! But, after using rtorrent for 4 weeks, a few things really acts weird and bugs me!
BTW, im on a unslung 6.8 box, with 500 gb USB disk on port 1, rTorrent 0.7.6 - libTorrent 0.11.4
- Misrepresentation: rtorrent doesn’t show anything but 0’s at how much data is trafficked, except for rates (current thruput), neither does it show size of files!
- rtorrent is WEIRD at managing thruput throttling. If I do NOT set any throttling, rtorrent screams along, but, whenever I put in ANY sort of capping, it slows to a crawl, or shuts down any traffic whatsoever!
Did any of you out there using rtorrent experience same problems? I sort of suspect, theres some dependent package i need or is mis-configured/installed, which screws with rtorrent, I’d really need some feedback on this!
Thanks in Advance,
