I noticed that the latest version is 1.75, but the version in the packages is only 1.51.

I'm using just the default repositories.  Any idea if a newer build will make it to the main libraries, or should I just trans and build the newer version myself?

hi digitlman,

just build transmission yourself Smiley

Code:
wget http://mirrors.m0k.org/transmission/files/transmission-1.75.tar.bz2
tar -xjvf transmission-1.75.tar.bz2
apt-get install gcc libcurl4-openssl-dev libtool make automake autoconf intltool
cd transmission-1.75
./configure --disable-gtk
make -s
make install

Regards,

Should I have "apt-get uninstall transmission" before I compiled and installed the new version?  I can't tell if it worked.  How can I tell the version I am running?  Running aptitude still says package 1.51 is installed....maybe that's normal?

Ok, well I did do a "apt-get remove transmission" and then an autoremove to delete the other associated packages.

I then re-ran the install.

So, I should be runnig the lates version.  Still, how can I tell for sure?

make sure that you deinstall the old transmission first.

after make install, you will have to create a custom startup script for the daemon.

I am running the latest transmission without any problems Smiley

Why did you disable the gtk in the build directions?

I manually removed everything and am about to reinstall again.

Any idea why a new package isn't in the jaunty repos?  It is for karmic....it would be nice to see the packages keeping up.

I did install the trans-daemon.

Can you use the web interface w/o the gtk?
