 Download errors

 
 by lauranon on: Jan 7 2011
 
Score 50%

Kwooty is a great app but it only seems to work for me about 40% of the time. By that I mean that if I queue, say, 10 NZBs (referencing RAR/PAR collections) for download, on average only 4 of them will download and be extracted successfully while the other 6 will download with more errors than the available PARs are able to correct. (The files I've tried tend to be in the 0.75GB - 1.5GB range)

If I try the same NZBs with Pan, I get a 100% success rate (i.e. never more errors than the PARs can cope with and usually no errors at all) so I don't think it's a problem with my networking or internet connection.

Has anyone else had this sort of problem with Kwooty and can give me any pointers as to what I might do to correct it?

Thanks

Laura

Hi Laura,

I would need more info about server configuration you set up (usenet provider, single or multiple servers ?, number of allowed connections, etc...).

The best help would be to send me some .nzb files that work and don't work in order to check if I encounter the issue on my side.

I sent you a PM in order to contact me by mail.

Cheers,
Xavier

Lately I have the same problems. Even if I re-download the broken files with kwooty or just reload the nzb file, it works most of the time. This errors just came in relative newly, definitely not in the 0.6 series.

Hi Marcs,

By calling broken files, do mean decoded files tagged as "decoded (bad crc)" ?
With certain encoders, nearly every downloaded files would be tagged as "decoded (bad crc)" but file is probably correct and verify/extract process should complete successfully.

This is a known issue, fix is already done in trunk and it will be fixed soon in the next bug fix release.

If this is not the case you encounter, could you please fill the appropriate bug report (http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=285032&atid=1208199) ?
Most info about your issue are welcome !

Xavier

0.7.3 looks good so far. Thanks for the fixes and the work. What lately came to my head was a integrated "load missing parts" option, some kind of search or the like. But this is cool already.

First and foremost, thanks for all your work on such an awesome program. Kwooty has done a wonderful job of making things dead simple for a Usenet/NZB noob like myself.
Unfortunately, I've run into a bug that's forcing me to use Pan for the moment. Kwooty constantly loses all but one connection to the server, severely limiting the download speed. I submitted a detailed bug report here: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3361080&group_id=285032&atid=1208199. (By the way, it's mighty impressive that this is the only open bug on Kwooty's bug tracker! ^_^ ) Let me know if there's any other info I can provide to help troubleshoot. Thanks!

Hi,
Thanks for this great app.
I see that translations are wellcome, however I couldn't find any translation instructions, neither here, nor in git or web page.

So, I was wondering, would you consider using something like Transifex for translations?
Since you allready have a master translation file on Gitorious, setting up project on Transifex would be a notime, and (I think) it woud be much easier both for you and translators.

Best regards,

 Kwooty should remember the job pausing state...

 
 by m00nraker on: Dec 7 2011
 
Score 50%

Many thanks for the fixes in 0.7.3.
Great work. I've one issue:
You quit Kwooty after you've paused some jobs and then you restart Kwooty again, then Kwooty continues the jobs instead of still pausing them. Or you pause some jobs and logout from your desktop session. When you login back, the jobs should still be paused. So what I wanna say: Kwooty should remember the state, if jobs are paused or not.

Maybe you find the time to integrate it in a future version.

Thx a lot Xavier :-)

Hi Kai,

In fact that was a feature, I thought that one will be ok to restart downloads automatically at next startup, but I understand that it should not work like that.

Anyway, the pause state is now kept between sessions ! :)
It is already in the trunk and will be in 0.8.0 release that should be ready soon...

Cheers,
Xavier

Hi Xavier.
Thx for your reply. Saving the pausing state would be great. I'm happy, cheers :-)

I found two other issues.

In settings dialog - Programs/Priority
There you can configure the process priority for verify/par and for unpacking. You can set the priority to low, lowest or user defined from +1 to +19.

First thing:
Kwooty doesn't allow values from 0 to -19. So negative values are not possible to configure. Is it possible that you can allow values between -19 and 19 for verfify and unpacking?

Second thing: I try to explain:
In the settings dialog you set the user defined priority to a nice value of (for example) +5. Now you start a 30GB (for example) download job (300 rar files). After download has finished kwooty starts verifying and unpacking the files with the former specified process priority +5. During this operation you decide to change to priotity to another value. You go back to settings dialog and change the user defined process priority from +5 to another vaule, for example to +19 and click apply. When you check the processes (in console with top command), you see the nice index of par and unrar haven't changed to +19. Instead the nice index still remains at +5.
So a priority change should also apply to already started jobs. if you change the process priority during a running task, kwooty should also update the nice index of the corresponding process. Is that possible to realize?

Cheers again....
A big Kwooty friend !!!!!!

Hi Kai,

Sorry for the delay to answer, I was quite busy those days.
About renicing an existing process (verify or repair) from a high value to a lower it might not be allowed by default unless extra privileges.
For example renicing a process from +10 to +2 works by default on ubuntu but is forbidden on fedora or opensuse for example.
Also setting a negative nice value requires administrator privileges.
It may be difficult to use it inside kwooty with the default configuration on some distributions.
I have no simple solution right now for this feature :(

Have a good Xmas day,
Xavier

 bandwidth manager problem

 
 by lauranon on: Jan 23 2012
 
Score 50%

Since upgrading to openSUSE 12.1 I can't get the bandwidth manager to pause the downloads. My days are divided into 2 periods: period 1 has unlimited download speed and period 2 has download paused. Everything worked fine before the OS upgrade but now it ignores the paused period and carries on downloading at full speed.

I've tried disabling and re-enabling the plugin and also deleting the ~/.kde4/apps/kwooty folder completely but it's still not working.

Has anyone else had this problem or can give me any pointers as to how to get it working again?

Thanks

Laura

Hi Laura,
It seems you have spotted an issue in kwooty 0.8.0. In scheduler plugin settings, just set the maximum download speed different to "No Limit" (no matter the value you set) and it should work as expected.

The next bug fix release will fix this !

Cheers,
Xavier

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
