TorrentFlux-b4rt

Wanted to directly download movies/series onto my AppleTV. After trial and error, managed to get TorrentFlux-b4rt working.

Can now download directly onto AppleTV using my preferred usenet supplier (easynews) web interface, as well als download torrents with transmissioncli

Below is the (first) dump of my notes during installation.

My Installation Notes

Make a safe(r) installation

  • .ssh/authorized_keys : add public key [1]
  • Downloaded Darwin ISO darwinx86-801.iso.gz [2]

Upload following files from ISO:

nohup
which
uptime
wget (from http://wiki.awkwardtv.org/wiki/Apple_TV_Binaries )
bunzip2
du

And

chmod 755 nohup which uptime wget bunzip2 du
chown root:wheel nohup which uptime wget bunzip2 du

Upload following packages from ISO:

bzip2-9.root.tar.bz2
curl-28.root.tar.bz2
gnuzip-19.root.tar.bz2
top-15.root.tar.bz2
vim-13.root.tar.bz2
zip-6.root.tar.bz2

Now:

sudo mount -uw /

And copy/untar the files into correct locations (/usr/bin and untar with -C / option)

  • vi /etc/sshd_config:
PermitPasswordLogin: no
ChallengeResponseAuthentication: no
  • Make sure your public/private key login works (test it!) and:
reboot

Install XAMPP (and disable most of it afterwards)

After installation, move XAMPP files out of the system disk (not needed, but this allows you to boot with the system still mounted read-only):

/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp stop
mv /Applications /mnt/Scratch
ln -s /mnt/Scratch/Applications /Applications
  • mkdir ~/htdocs
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp StopFTP
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp StopSSL
  • edit httpd.conf, remove all AliasMappings and point DocumentRoot to your ~/htdocs
/Applications/xampp/xamppfiles/mampp start

If everything works, make XAMPP autostart

If you want, do setHostName etc.

Set path and add xamppfiles/bin to it.

Install torrentflux-b4rt

Download latest version (beta2) and install torrentflux-b4rt [3]


Missing sockstat binary on AppleTV: fix portlist function

In inc/functions/functions.core.netstat.php - function netstatPortList() replace case2 statement with:

                case 2: // bsd
// JPD : Hardcoded AppleTV transmissioncli fix
//                      $processUser = posix_getpwuid(posix_geteuid());
//                      $webserverUser = $processUser['name'];
//                      $retStr .= shell_exec($cfg['bin_sockstat']." -4 -l -P tcp | ".$cfg['bin_awk']." '/(python|transmissi|wget|nzbperl|java).+\*:[0-9]/ {split(\$6, a, \":\");print a[2]}'");
                       $retStr .= shell_exec("ps ax | grep transmissioncli | grep -v grep | awk '{print \$11}'");
                       break;

Tip: Authentication Patch

In ClientHandler.wget.php - inject method:

$url = str_replace("http://downloads.members.easynews.com", "http://username:password@downloads.members.easynews.com", $url) 

This allows copy&pasting easynews URL's into the wget box. Can ofcourse be replaced by your favorite newsprovider
