Comment: Add the SMF files and commands and updated the Heading


This was not trivial so I thought I would document it here.

 I imagine that imagine that running ZFS and Bittorrent together is a popular scenario.

Download Tarball


Make sure that xz is and wget are installed

pkg install xz xz wget

Download and untar the binary


tar -xjvf transmission-2.77.tar.xzcd transmissionxz
cd transmission-2.77

Install Dependencies


./configure --prefix=/opt
sudo make install

Install as Service

I have included the SMF config file I use as well as the service method shell script.

Both (I believe) are pulled from the Transmission SFE built package.

Here are the relevant commands, though a package should really be employed for this.

I may work on that later...

cp lib-svc-method-transmission /lib/svc/method/transmission

chown root:bin /lib/svc/method/transmission

chmod 755 /lib/svc/method/transmission

svccfg import transmission-daemon.xml
