#162 closed bug (WontFix)

Long filenames within torrent problems

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: markybob
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: 0.5.x Version:
Keywords: Cc:



A torrent I was downloading had filenames which I believe were too long for my file system (NTFS) to store (or at least this is what I believe). Everytime some of that file attempts to download, I get an error message and the torrent pauses until I click OK (at which point it continues downloading the other files). I tried to set the priority to "don't download" on the offending files, but I believe this just sets their priority to very low (as opposed to actually stopping all attempts to download them) as I still get the same error message coming up. I think it'd make sense to try and check the filename length and optionally truncate them if appropriate... or at least to cause files marked as "don't download" not to be examined in any way on disc. I'm presuming the priority method takes place after the file is open rather than not opening at all if it's in the don't download state. I hope this is clear,

I can confirm this bug on Ubuntu 8.04 with Deluge, on a hard drive using Ext3 as file system. In a torrent I tried to download there existed a file with a very long file name (file name + path equaled 232 characters), making Deluge show the following message:

torrent paused: disk write error, open failed: File name too long

As the bug reporter stated, nothing can be done with the torrent now, it does not help to set priority of that file to 'don't download', the warning message persists, making download of the other files in the torrent impossible as well.
