Description Stephen Harris 2013-10-20 09:02:04 EDT
Description of problem:
/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon has a chkconfig start value of 16.  This means it starts before all filesystem (eg NFS) are fully mounted.  Users storing torrents on a network filesystem will find the torrent doesn't restart on reboot because the datafiles aren't available when the daemon starts

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always on reboot with NFS mounted torrent store

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure an NFS disk (eg /torrents)
2. Add a torrent with with this as the target directory.  Let run to completion
3. Reboot

Actual results:
Torrent is now flagged as "missing files"; user needs to "validate torrent files" and then "start" to let it seed again.

Expected results:
Torrent should automatically seed

Additional info:
Change "start" to 98 so that transmission-daemon is restarted after all filesystems are mounted.
