[GUIDE] TRANSMISSION 2.84 on mybooklive (02.43.10-048)


#21

Hey Tommy - you should be able to get Transmission working using the guide in this thread if you do what I did with the startup script (adding spaces after the square brackets - see my second post in this thread).

As for CouchPotato, I managed to get that working using the guide on this forum here - [GUIDE] CouchPotato V2 on MBL, but I had to manually go through the startup script and parse it correctly. I was going to post it on the thread for other users (or for the OP to just copy/paste into the guide) but the topic seems to be closed, so Iā€™ll PM it to you.

I managed to get both working on my 3tb MBL once Iā€™d parsed them correctly. Currently have CouchPotato working perfectly with Tranmission, controlled using an IMDB extension for Chrome! I only wish I could get SickRage (newer version of SickBeard) working for TV shows. I managed to install it and get it running on startup but it just seems to keep crashing.

Is their any chance someone could post a confirmed corrected script for the transmission compile and install. I tried to correct the square bracket spacing issue myself but the script still failed. Thank you.


#23

Is it possible that someone who has the working script can reupload it since this does not work anymore because of the forum update?


#24

here my fixed version of the script => http://pastebin.com/mAnDhmj3
thanks proglin !

What can I do?
Help me!


#26

I fixed the original code from migration of forum layout. Take a look at second post again.:point_left:
There is a link with the correct code.

Tiago. I have changed the URL of LibEvent source location. Get the script again. It should work.:slightly_smiling:

Help


#28

LibEvent download location has changed. I updated the script to the new location.


#29

Great work!!!

Thank you =]

Hi Proglin,

Thank you so much for this beautiful script. Unfortunately Iā€™m not a Linux expert, then I tried it and it failed at step 12. Here is the copy-paste of the ā€œreportā€. Maybe this is because I already have Transmission 2.82 installed on my NAS. What do you think ? What should I change in the script in order to update my current package please ?

Thanks for your help

Hi Phil7. This script was made to run on ā€œnormalā€ mybooklive. So if it already have another version it is better to do a firmware upgrade than run the script.

But wait a little because they release another version of transmission (2.92). I will try to see if it still compatible.


#32

Hi,

Do you have to have a specific firmware version for your device or would this work with the latest available? Because Iā€™ve read that with the newer firmware this installation was blocked.

Could you please confirm?

Thanks


#33

Hi Proglin,

Thanks for your answer but unfortunately I canā€™t make a ā€œsimpleā€ package update because of very old dependencies that must be updated. Maybe I should return to a normal firmware, then apply your script.

It would be great if you could make it to 2.92, and even better if you could check in your script if a previous version is already there and make a package update instead of canceling the whole script (but maybe thatā€™s not that easy cause of dependenciesā€¦).

Thanks anyway. Great work


#34

By the way, for those on 02.43.10-048 with this Tramisssion installed. Does your device go to sleep (blue light) where thereā€™s no activity going on it? Because there are several reports here on the forum of that firmware version that, even with the ethernet cable unplugged, the device would never enter sleep mode.

Could you please confirm? Thanks


#35

Iā€™m having the same problem as Proglin on a freshly new My Book Live device. It fails on step 12 with:

ā€œ12/22 Downloading sources of TRANSMISSIONThe command failed, exiting.ā€

I donā€™t have anything installed nor any customizations applied; as itā€™s running after a fresh disk image. Also, Iā€™m on the 02.43.10-048 firmware (same as you).

Could you let me know whatā€™s going on?

Thanks


#36

Same here. I also get
ā€œ12/22 Downloading sources of TRANSMISSIONThe command failed, exiting.ā€
on a freshly reinstalled Mybook live duo.

I suspect this has something to do with the wget command in that code segment, that is no longer available, or has changed location.

Please let us know if you can correct it. That would be great!


#37

Guys,

I dissected and debugged the script yesterday, and I came up with a correction for it. The Transmission source download was failing because the server certificate is outdated. Avoiding the certificate verification bypasses this error, and the script proceeds normally.

I posted the new version here:
http://pastebin.com/7U3EKAXL

Enjoy, and let me know if it works for you!


#38

Itā€™s working !!! Wunderbar :slight_smile:
Thanks Progiln, thanks HTaborda

Hi HTaborda,
Could you take a look on the script once more, seems like links are outdated again.
Thanks in advance.
