i'm just getting started with my brand new DS209+. Getting a decent torrent client plus GUI to work is my main problem.
i already tried the rtorrent/wtorrent guide without success, so i gave this HowTo a try.
unfortunately i couldn't get this to work either.
i'm a synology-noob and my linux knowledge is rather shallow, but i 've been using PCs for over two decades now, so i know how to use a telnet console.
it seems the guides do not apply to the most recent packages of the applications anymore.
i followed each and every step and it just won't work.
don't get me wrong, i appreciate the work and time that went into the HowTos as without them i wouldn't even have the slightest idea of what to do at all. however, if they do not get updated once in a while, the authors should at least warn noobies like me that, unless you use the old packages, you'll never get it to work properly.
i mean, the idea of a HowTo is, after all, to provide a more or less simple step by step guide for people who don't know all the linux magic by heart and can't figure it all out themselves.
your syno has a "new and more powerful" cpu that's not compatible (right now) with all the packages out there.
anyways, why don't you use the bundled download station?
it's based on rtorrent 0.8.2 and works perfectly out off the box (you need to have the latest firmware thouh)
