I'm using a modded Guruplug+ as a download box. I compiled and tested aMule and rtorrent. aMule works perfect, but rtorrent has problems hashing big files. When it finishes downloading a torrent, it starts hashing the downloaded file, and almost always fails, and each time you check the hash of the file, it fails in different chunks! Also if I download a big torrent with my PC, copy it to the HD connected to my GP+ and check MD5, the file is properly copied to GP+, but rtorrent fails hash check!

Googling I found a lot of people with this problem, the developers say it's because a kernel bug found only in version 2.6.19, or maybe due to defective hardware...

Could my problem be caused by defective hardware? Why other programs (i.e., aMule and md5sum) aren't affected? Anyone using rtorrent with guruplug to download big files?

I never heard of rtorrent.  I use Slackware (armedslack) mainly on my GuruPlug and KTorrent in a full KDE environment over X to my main Linux PC (Slackware) on another X console.  I am trying  rtorrent because of its slimness tonight and your post.  I always loved character based apps more.  Got it compiled and using it for normal TV episode downloads presently. When I get to larger stuff. I will let you know if it fails on larger stuff as it happens.

root@guruslack:~# cat /etc/slackware-version

on my gp+ i  installed  2 months ago rtorrent, out-of-the-box (synaptic/apt-get), no need to complie,
it's running 24x7, no problems at all.
advise: nat the torrent port on your router/fw


* rtorrent-version 0.8.6-1.txt (3.85 KB - downloaded 237 times.)

Maybe try out Transmission, it's better than rTorrent. Just download, install and away you go!

Install in Ubuntu: apt-get install transmission-daemon
and then edit the settings file as root which is in /var/lib/transmission-daemon/settings.json .

I'll have to try compiling transmission.

I got rtorrent compiled  after my last post and it has worked flawlessly!
I like it.

Believe it or not, the issues I have with rtorrent are caused by a HARDWARE problem. I tried pointing a big household fan to my modded GP+, and guess what, rtorrent stopped failing hashes. I hashed a big 60+ GB torrent and worked perfect. It looks like the mod I have done to my GP+ isn't enough to warm the device Sad. I'll have to add a little fan Sad.

The weird thing is everything (including aMule, md5sum, etc) excepting rtorrent is working without the need of addittional cooling. Dunno why this program is more sensitive to heat problems.
