ok. so I have a linux machine thousands of miles away that has limited resources and that I use to torrent linux distributions and other legal material from ]LegalTorrents - Film, Music and Digital Media :cool:
what i have been doing is downloading the files then compressing them to a .tgz by logging in with ssh. I then download the files via http, and I must download the files via HTTP.
is there any way I can get it so it tar packages the data only the moment that it is downloaded and stores a small bit of it in ram? so no storage space is waisted.
it could also be just a .tar
What torrent client are you using?
I know transmission has an option to run a schell script on completion.
transmissioncli(1): bittorrent client - Linux man page
Or rtorrent as well.
rtorrent(1): BitTorrent client for ncurses - Linux man page
