So i figured out that Rtorrent isnt broken at all. If i log in as the user, I can manually run "rtorrent" and it starts up and runs perfectly. But if i reboot the seedbox, i have to log back in as the user and do it again. In the past I never had to manually start the service.
Now I have 2 user accounts on there. Ron and 94tbird. 94tbird is the account that runs rtorrent, but any maintenance i do on the box, I use Ron. Is there any way to make the rtorrent service start automatically after a reboot as the user 94tbird without me manually logging in to do this?
also notice that if i log out of the console, rtorrent quits. it will only run when currently logged in
