I have always found that Transmission worked. Pctorrent is in Woof Alpha 9 but whenever I try to use Pctorrent, I end up downloading Transmission. Crying or Very sad

I do not use bit-torrent enough to comment further. I want easy. Embarassed

Will transmission be compiled for Woof (Puppy 5)?
Is there something smaller?
Is Pctorrent easy enough for a Lobster to use?

Stay tuned for the next exciting transmission . . . Smile

PostPosted: Fri 05 Jun 2009, 16:33    Post subject: update  

Transmission updated to version 1.70, compiled under 4.1.2 it must work with every puppy 3, 4 and 5(woof).

Thank you rocketgeeezer for your good words Very Happy that's a support to continue compiling it.


New features:

All Platforms
Distributed hash table (DHT) support for public torrents
Add option for moving and finding a torrent's data on the disk
JSON RPC messages can be ~85% shorter, saving bandwidth and CPU
When available, use the system's copy of libevent instead of building one
Automatically pause torrents when verifying
Fix small bugs and memory leaks

Web Client
Big speed improvements, especially with large torrents
Fix 1.61 bug that broke adding torrents via the web client
Add the ability to upload multiple torrents at once
Torrents added by URL were always paused, regardless of preferences
Comments and announce addresses were cut off in the inspector
The "data remaining" field wasn't updated when the number reached 0
Smaller design adjustments

GTK+
Fix intltool build problem
Make it clearer that the status bar's ratio mode button is a button
Torrent comment box did not scroll, so long comments were partially hidden



New version gave me smaller size executables Very Happy so I suspect they did a code clean-up.
Propably could make it even smaller by using --disable-nls but I support multilinguality, so such an accion is out of question.

Tried to compile the qt client but even thougth nothing was missing it gave me to many mistakes. I managed to hack the code and overcome couple of them but at the end they were to many. I won't try it again before the next release, so anyone who can is welcomed to contribute.

I see that they are updating also the 1.5+ brunch but I've decided to go on with the leading egde version, except if anyone needs 1.5+.

Any feedback always is welcomed

Sorry for the delay but the summer is tempting me to keep much time away from my computer Very Happy

Transmission updated to version 1.71


New features:

All Platforms:
Fix 1.70 bug that caused high CPU use in high-peer swarms
Fix 1.70 build problems with DHT and libevent

Daemon:
Fix watchdir issue on OSes that don't have inotify

GTK+:
Fix 1.70 intltool build problem
Fix crash when the OS's stock mime-type icons are misconfigured

Web Client:
Fix 1.70 bug where some torrents appeared to be duplicates



From this version and on you'll need the updated intltool package since transmision wants version>0.40. Maybe some of you you have intltool>0.40 but in puppy 4.1.2 in which I compiled it I didn't.

Yes of course, but when woof will get in beta or at least a very stable alpha which will make me to decide which woof derivate to use, upup, dpup, apup, tpup Shocked Confused

Haven't realy sourched yet, I believe that I will find one. I'm thiking also for aria, if only had a good GUI I think would be the best since it has torrent, ftp, http, metalink support all in the same package.

Nope, no, noway

It turns the small package to the full, accualy it contains whatever I've taken out from the full package in order to make the small. In 2 words It's the same as installing the full package over the small one but it gives you the ability to turn back to the small one without having to reinstall it

Michalis, it would be awesome if you could post what default configure options you use to build these packages, or what steps are used, so that later versions (that are compatible with your packages) could be uploaded by other users. Smile
