Native compile/build Transmission

http:// www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/TransmissionCompileBuild


Version 2.x and above

Version 2.22-2 is fully functional

Due to the hard work of a couple of people

They deserve a hard earned THANKS from everyone...

_______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________________

Although http:// trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/2858

said that the issue is fixed, when tried, version 2.22 from the

optware feeds STILL produces many many hash check fails.

SO... it does NOT appear solved for the NSLU2.

The problem may be related to:

http:// trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/3826

https://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/3826(approve sites)

and the platform of the NSLU2:

http:// www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Optware/Platforms

and the glibc or uclibc version. Maybe someone will

have time to sort this out and post it here.

Reverted back to v1.76 :

    http:// computerfixpro.com/Transmission-176-NSLU2.zip 

Version 1.76 woks great!

If anyone has got a version above 1.76 functioning maybe

they'll post how to do it here!

Maybe someone here will get a fix in the works.

couldn't be edited so here it is, but this can be considered

and merged into that page.
