Transmission reports "permissions error" but actual permissions and logs don't agree

Post by Anansi1 » Sun May 13, 2018 7:38 am

All,

I'm using Transmission v. 2.94 (d8e60ee44f) on a mid-2010 Macintosh Pro running 10.13.4 (17E202) and am trying to download single torrents using "magnet links". When I connect to the torrent, I get the normal client connection showing multiple tracker sources and the download appears to begin normally, but shortly (within 5% downloaded) the file transfer stops and I see a "permission denied" error listing the target directory. I've checked the permissions on the target directory and they've been set to give "everyone" read-write access to the folder.

I updated Transmission to the current version (that is/was a separate bug/issue - it wouldn't download and I had to uninstall the old version and then install the new version from the web-site) and then re-attempted the download; no success. I checked my system for updates and there were none. I checked the console in the recommended locations, but since this isn't a crash per-se, there isn't a crash log. When I search the console for "transmission" the only things I find are as follows:

I can re-create this at will, using multiple "magnet" source files. Please let me know how I can further assist.

Re: Transmission reports "permissions error" but actual permissions and logs don't agree

Post by innedisco » Sat Jun 20, 2020 1:02 pm

I have the same problem.

I add a torrent to Transmission but after just a few seconds the download stops and says permission denied. When I look into the folder, I can't find any file related to the torrent. Deleting the file out of Transmission and put it back again leads to a message that says that it file is already in the system and can't be imported again, so I have to restart Transmission to try again.

I tried different places, my external drive and also my internal SSD. Both react the same.

At some point I started to use another client and it worked out fine but after a few weeks there was also nothing happening anymore.

How can I solve this problem? What are the steps that I need to do to find a solution.

Do you need any report? It also crashed a few times in the last days while I was trying to solve it maybe something like this?

Thanks a lot.
