[Solved] problem when adding magnet torrents. Knows solutions?

Posted January 16th, 2019    262   0   magnet .meta rtorrent

Hello world :)

I have a problem with torrent magnets ending up as a tiny XXXXXXXXX.meta file instead of download the actual torrent.

Im using rtorrent and have found a couple of suggestions on GH but not oriented enough to actually understand what I need to do :)

Issues found here:
https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/issues/61 (Main)
https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/issues/182 (dup with more info)
https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/issues/602 (even more suggestions)

Does anyone know a fix for this?
