Raspberry Pi Seed Field

Idea originally thought by SeanB on 12th March 2012

Summary

To provide an extremely simple method of setting up a linux image that can simply seed torrents for the common user.

Benefits:

  • This would help the torrenting community by providing a low cost machine to provide constant seeding.
  • Easy to setup.
  • 24/7 seeding.


Technical Details

Operating System

  • The image will be using a Debian/Fedora operating system.

Program

  • The image will use a program called Deluge

Comments and Ideas

Well, if the idea is to have a 24/7 torent seeder, it is better to run the RPi as a server, headless that is in order to minimize costs.

I would highly recommend using a simpler and more powerful torrent server. in this case I would opt for rtorrent, it is cli based, can be accessed and interacted with by ssh, and its resource footprint is minimal.
