Creating a (netbook) download rig

A netbook is perfect to be used as a download rig, as it is made with battery life in mind, and consumes way less power than even a laptop (not to mention desktops). Yet, it has enough processing power to upload and download stuff.. so- for those that dont want ‘just’ a download rig- a nebook is the next best thing. So here i kinda log what a plan to configure (a set-up if you will)…

  • jdownloader which starts at boot.
  • Transmission client.
  • lighttpd which serves the download folder to those who give a …

… Jdownloader has a web-access plug-in, as does Transmission. Both these can downlaod files to the lighttpd www folder… and plus, running jdownloader without graphical mode, in tty2 proves to require lesser resources

Note:These are meaningless notes, Do NOT try to make head or tail of it – lest you may start seeing tails on the middle and heads on that tail. (pun fully inteded). Me no responsible
