Changed line 63 from:

The problem with wrong upload and download rates under Unslung seems to be related to incorrect rates reported by the BitTornado client used by TorrentFlux. I believe this can be related to some problem with the version of Python or the underlying libraries available under Unslung, but my lack of Python expertise prevents me from getting a full diagnose of the problem. This problem, however, does not prevent the correct operation of TorrentFlux. fcarolo December 02, 2008, at 12:25 PM

Changed lines 42-47 from:

If you install TorrentFlux under Unslung, it will not be able to start torrents. You need to manually install coreutils and procps, in order to add a full version of ps and nohup, that are missing from the default Unslung setup.

  ipkg install coreutils procps

After that, restart your web server.

to:

TorrentFlux needs nohup and a full version of ps in order to start and monitor running torrents. These utilities are not installed in a default Unslung setup. However, this dependency problem has been fixed since version 2.4-5, which will add packages coreutils and procps if they are not yet installed in your machine.
