Subject description: Full and small package
 

Transmission is a BitTorrent client


5 pets available.
The first 2 need to install libevent version 2.0.11
The next 2 are build with libevent statically linked, so you don't have to install libevent.
In the last one pet are the locales.

All files compiled under puppy 4.3.1 and will work from 4.3.1 and all the later puppies.

1. Transmission-2.31-i486.pet is the full program without the locales.

2. Transmission-2.31-i486-small.pet is a cut-down version with only the basic program.


3. Transmission-2.31-i486-static.pet is the full program without the locales and with libevent statically linked.

4. Transmission-2.31-i486-small-static.pet is a cut-down version with only the basic program and with libevent statically linked.


5. Transmission_NLS-2.31-i486.pet is the package with all the locales (translations).




Thanks to ttuuxxx:
in order to have the option in Firefox and Seamonkey to automatically open the torrent in Transmission you have to go to:
/etc/mailcap
open it and add the line:
application/x-bittorrent; /usr/bin/transmission-gtk "$@"

I believe that definately it should be the smaller one.
The full package has apart from the basic transmission, remote control and web interface mainly. I don't think that they're so usefull features in order to accept their extra weigth. So for Deep Thought I think we should use the small one which just works as a client and if anyone wants to move to the full package he can use the new package Very Happy transmission-1.50-i486-extras (look at the bottom of the post) which will install everything that is excluded.

Does it work? I don't know why you have seg fault but in my puppy 4.12 all the versions till now work. Do you use a puplet or a cutdown puppy? what does ldd report? Give me something more if it doesn't work in order to help you. Anyway I hope it does work.

Thanks for the package,MIchalis. Works like a charm.

Even though it's a beta,it has less bugs than the "stable" 1.52 release.

Gotta love the port randomizer and the improved speed limiter.

1.60 Final released.

Changes form 1.60 Beta1 :

* None

(LOL)


Transmission is a lovely BT client for Linux that gets better and better with each release. But Its featureset is still a far cry from what we're used to have with the *old, outdated* uTorrent 1.6 for Windows.

Transmission neds at least these features::
Code:

http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1783
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/629
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1599
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/7
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1307
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1521
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1753
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/327

http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1918
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/117
http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1631


and the graphs to reach the level of the old version of uT.

Althougth I know that you are not reafering to size rather than the progress of transmission, something else is bothering me lately.

Transmission is very good and with many features but unfortunately is getting bigger and bigger with every release, so sooner or later maybe will have to search for another torrent client and keep transmission as add on pet only. In a sub 100 mb distro I don't think that we can afford the size of transmission anymore. For that reason next time I will make an additional compile with few less features and striped so as to get the least possible size and see if it will have any significant difference.
