Error: Cannot open...

#1 Postby danix803 » Mon Jun 21, 2010 6:49 am

I've already tried to google for answers, and visited/registered at the ktorrent site (which is kinda sparse)... but, have been unable to locate a solution for this problem...

When running ktorrent I get this error message and can't figure out how to fix it... I would appreciate any help offered...

The message says... "Error: Cannot open /mnt/sdc1/shared/temp/tor10...."
Now, I'm download 13 torrents at once...
5 currently say stalled...
6 have the error mentioned above...
and 2 of them are doing great... (That's all on the download side)...

I have 6 torrents on the upload side, and they are all seeding...
I looked at all the torrent cache files and the ones with the error messages had root as the user and Group as root... The ones that work have root as the user and users as group... So, I changed all their permissions to mirror the working ones, with a checkmark in "apply changes to all subfolders and their contents"... but, there was no change... I think that it's a permission problem but can't figure it out...

Please help... If I should be in the 'Newbies' forum, please let me know...

The ones that say stalled will be either waiting for the others to finish (depending on how ktorrent is configured - may only be set for two active downloads at a time), or - there may be no seeders.

As far as changing the permissions - you need to be root to change them. Think of it this way - root is the owner, so it would need to be root who changes the permissions.

By far the easiest way of doing this (unless you want to do chown in a terminal) is to to use the root-actions-service-menu. Kent posted a deb here. I personally find it invaluable. Install it, and it adds a right-click menu to dolphin. Then you can change ownership and it simply asks for the root password.

Owner is root
group is users

Shouldn't that allow ktorrent to write to that folder???
Is ktorrent considered a user or does it have it's own user identitiy... I can't find it anywhere in kuser...

Nope

[color="Red"]Owner is root[/color]

Root has admin privileges (ie highest user) - so no normal users can write to the folder without root privileges

Personally I'm using Fatrat a lot for torrents now, it's in the main 8.5 community repo. It uses the same libtorrent-rasterbar0 bittorrent engine as Deluge and Miro.

How about checking out Aria2, command line based. Version 1.9.4-1 is available in Squeeze, not sure about Lenny.

And here are some GUI's for it
Aria2fe
Aria2::gui
Karia2 (looks like it's designed for KDE4, though can't seem to find much there)
Eatmonkey

TechRepublic posted a message about it today and it looks mighty promising.

U got it... I finally figured it out... not that everybody's super complicated answers did nothing to help... they at least made me scratch my head... LOL...
anyway, it was very, very simple... Like you said... no one can write to root, except root... which in really only half true... in the GUI under "Access Permissions" there are three section... Owner, Group, and Others...
I had 'Owner' - Can view & modify content... which is great for a default... Then only 'root' can view & modify content... that means that ktorrent cannot add files...
Under 'Group' - Can view content... So Ktorrent could view it, but not add and/or change files...
All I did was change that setting to allow users to add/change files and poof it works...
However, as easy as that was to fix... it still leaves me a little unsettled... I don't want ALL the users (some children) to be able to add/modify files in that folder... So, is Ktorrent listed as a 'user'... or does it have it's own userID??? I don't see anything for it in 'Mepis User Assistant' or 'Kuser'...
Is there a username for Ktorrent, and if not, is there a way to make one???

He (Kent) attached a deb to that post. Just install the deb. It adds a right click context menu to Dolphin. And you need to be logged into ML to access the file.
