Comment 2 Seth Vidal 2005-05-20 07:20:08 UTC
It'd be really spiffy if it could get a logrotate.d file, too.

Comment 3 Paul Howarth 2005-05-20 09:39:11 UTC
Do you have any sample log files for the tracker?

Comment 4 Paul Howarth 2005-05-23 10:39:56 UTC
Forget the logfile samples request - I was thinking of logwatch rather than

Initscripts added in bittorrent-4.0.1-2, currently in build queue.

Comment 5 Seth Vidal 2005-05-30 05:37:22 UTC
I'll be posting some new init scripts for bittorrent shortly.

the ones I posted before kinda sucked for various reasons. These are mo-betta.

Comment 6 Paul Howarth 2005-05-30 09:51:47 UTC
Glad to hear it; I noticed that btseed was causing initlog to use lots of CPU
and memory after a while, probably because it didn't daemonize properly, but I
haven't had chance to investigate yet.

new bittorrent init scripts for tracker and seed

new initscripts for the bittorrent package.

Comment 8 Paul Howarth 2005-06-03 15:48:51 UTC
I've updated the scripts in the bittorrent-4.1.1-2.fc5 package (devel). Not
quite the same as the ones you supplied; I've now managed to get them in a state
where they check properly that the "daemons" have started and also that I can
start them from an ssh session and actually be able to log out of that session
cleanly :-)

Comment 9 Seth Vidal 2005-06-03 17:45:47 UTC
yah, I noticed those checkins. That rocks. Thanks!
