#3193 new bug

Lack of 0-byte file on read-only seed prevents seeding

Reported by: bittaurus Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: needs verified
Component: Core Version: other (please specify)
Keywords: seed failure Cc:


If a torrent is added to deluge where the files exist on a read-only mount and there is a missing 0-byte file, deluge will attempt to create the 0-byte file and fail, thus preventing the torrent from seeding.

Afaik, 0-byte files are not sent to the peer and the peer creates them locally from the torrent metadata.

Ideally, the absence of a local 0-byte file, and the failure to create one locally, should not prevent the seeding of an otherwise complete torrent, as it's never sent to the peer.
