Re: Torrent server

This is what I got from the driver documentation. The smsc95xx.turbo_mode "Enable multiple frames per Rx transaction" when true. I don't know exactly what does that mean, my networking superpowers are not good enough, but on the practical side of the issue, I've only detected a slight reduction of t...

Re: Torrent server

Well, I don't know about "Xbian", but from a raspbian (previous to the last official image), it only took: Update Run the rpi-update script Add the "smsc95xx.turbo_mode=N" parameter to /boot/cmdline.txt After that, it started working like magic, I have a current uptime of more than 10 days without a...

Re: Torrent server

As I said before, don't panic and give it some time, we'll figure out how to make it work.

Re: Torrent server

Hi again, everyone, In my case, looks like it was a power problem. I have been using a cell phone charger (a good quality one) and it ended up panicking at some point after 24 hours of uptime, so I connected it to a USB port from my router, and it's been working for 48 without problems now. I still ...

Re: Torrent server

uurkul, could you post a "uname -a" of your Pi? or just "uname -r", to see the kernel version you are using.
Have you updated your Pi firmware (rpi-update or manually)?
Have you updated the sw through apt?


Thanks in advance.

Re: Torrent server

Hi jotajotaramirez, do you have any max connections limit set? I've updated the firmware using rpi-update on raspbian and i've found a slight improvement, but nothing conclusive yet.

I'm trying to find a configuration which would keep my Pi alive for 48 hours straight, but no luck by now.

Re: Torrent server

That's not my case at all, when my Pi crashes, ssh, samba and transmission crash. I tried to plug a HDMI monitor to see the output, and it just keeps repeating the same lines so fast that I can't read them, not even my camera is fast enough to get a clear pic of what it's saying.

Re: Torrent server

Hi again, I left the Pi working all night, and looks like after a few hours, the Pi went down again and I had to reduce the max number of connections to 20 again. However, with such few connections, I can't reach any relevant download speed, only peaks of ~400kbps. However, I've downloaded a debian ...

Re: Torrent server

Hi everyone, I'm trying to keep it stable by lowering the max connections and download speed and increasing them to see what's the limit, but testing this takes a lot of time. I've started with 20 connections and 500Kbps, and I've successfully raised the number of connections to 40 with no kernel pa...

Re: Torrent server

No luck with Raspbian either. I've loaded 5 torrents/magnets and it went down just as with debian with tweaked kernel.

The only difference i've found with your method, is that I mounted my external HD through fstab instead of rc.local. May it make any difference?

Re: Torrent server

I've tried limiting the number of connections to a ridiculously low amount for a torrent client, just 50. It kept working for a fairly long time, about 45 minutes, and then panicked. I'm using: Headless Raspberry Model B. sshd for remote access. Debian wheezy with patched kernel (supposedly to fix t...

Re: Setting up a Torrent box

Yeah, that's been my main reference guide up to now. The thing is, there is a lot of fragments of info from many people, but not a single one specifying it's full configuration, from the initial .img to the torrent client configuration used. I'd like to get as many "full reports" about working syste...

Sorry, I meant that this bug makes the Pi freeze when having a heavy use.

Setting up a Torrent box

Hi Everyone, I'm setting up my Raspberry Pi to work as a headless torrent box, and I'm having some trouble putting it into service. I've read a lot about a certain bug on the kernel that, since the Pi's ethernet and USB interfaces share the same bus, makes the Pi when having heavy use, just like a t...
