Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1021223
transmission-daemon starts too early
Last modified: 2015-11-01 11:47:28 EST
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):
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
Torrent is now flagged as "missing files"; user needs to "validate torrent files" and then "start" to let it seed again.
Torrent should automatically seed
Change "start" to 98 so that transmission-daemon is restarted after all filesystems are mounted.
