Sorry for the delay but I was for long time away from home and I returned today. I'll compile the latest version tomorrow or at least the day after tomorrow, and together I'll post how I compile it and all the steps in order to make the pets I post.


So check again tomorrow.

The files, statistics and everything concerning downloads are independent from the executable which is the pet. So you won't lose anything.

The only thing that bothers me is that you are talking for version 0.76. It's a very old version and I remember that there was a change in transmission around version 0.8 where they had given instruction to backup the files first. Unfortunately can't find anything in they're website now. Just in case to be sure copy the folder "/root/.config/transmission/" somewhere and in case you have problem copy it back. Maybe take also a backup of the executable which is in "/usr/bin/" named transmission.

I have tried and Trasmission does not recognise that I have downloaded some file and restarted to download it! How can I do that file are recognized by the newer version?

According to transmission site, at the end of this page they say that old versions were storing the files at the folder /root/.transmission/ whether versions greater than 1.04 which are XDG compliant store those files at the folder /root/.config/transmission/. Are you sure the files are in the later folder?

In transmission also you can add the torrent file, locate as the save folder the one where the file is already download and ask it to check the integrity of the already downloaded pieces.

But I'm telling you again that I remember a major change in a version pre 0.8 or around it. I think they had changed something in the way the program was working, so downloads in progress of older versions weren't recognized and thus they were telling to finish the downloads before upgrading. I can't find something in the site now, but you can ask here.

Thanks Michalis! I love Transmission, and having the most recent for Puppy is fantastic. I'm using it for more than 24 hours and it is rock solid.
Keep up the good work, Puppy could use some more pet maintainers as you Smile

The third transmission_NLS-1.75-i486.pet is the package with all the locales (translations).


BIIIG thankyou for that!

One of my main reasons learning to know an work with puppy was to get a cheap, quiet, economic NAT-, p2p-, web- & ftp-server on an old Compaq SFF (small form factor) with pIII 500 MHz cpu and 400 MB RAM, bought for about 10 $ @ ebay.

And befor finding YOUR 1.75 pet, coming from utorrent/widows doing torrent @ puppy got more and more traumatic Smile

Sstill being a linux newbie I'm depending on guys like you making pets like this...

plz keep on!

THX again

brin Surprised)

Again, Thanks a lot, Michalis!

puppy 4.30 & TM 1.75 worked good, but performing other tasks in parallel got my system rather unstable.
'hope, 4.31 with 1.76 is performing even better!

plz keep on helping us newbies!

THX, brin

Thank you also brin

If you ever have any problems with transmission post the problem here or pm me in order to try to figure out the solution. I hope 1.76 indeed performs better.

Doesn't work for me in 4.1.2. I get the following error.

Code:
transmission: symbol lookup error: transmission: undefined symbol: gdk_threads_add_timeout_seconds


Someone else had the same problem, but I didn't see a solution in the thread.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47394&search_id=20023137

EDIT: If it helps, installing libidn.so.11 fixed a problem with version 1.22, so I do have that one now.
