Wow great !!!!

I install transmission-2.71, I try to explain it

From squeeze version, thanks cpgeek

apt-get install dpkg-dev
apt-get install intltool
apt-get install zlib1g-dev zlib1g
apt-get install checkinstall
if you don't have install the transmission version from squeeze, instaled it
apt-get install transmission-daemon

stop transmission
/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop

cp /etc/apt/sources.list.wheezy /etc/apt/sources.list

(sources.list.wheezy is the same of cpgeek)

vi /etc/apt/sources.list

add more repositories

deb http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.fr.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free

apt-get update

apt-get install libevent-dev

cd /root
cp /etc/apt/sources.list.squeeze /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update

wget http://download.transmissionbt.com/file ... 71.tar.bz2
tar -xvjf transmission-2.71.tar.bz2

cd /root/transmission-2.71

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH='/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabi/pkgconfig/'

./configure --enable-nls --enable-lightweight --enable-cli --enable-daemon

make
checkinstall

now you have install transmission-2.71 version but it is in /usr/local/bin with debian package it was installed in /usr/bin don't worry

cd /etc/init.d

vi transmision-daemon

change
DAEMON=/usr/bin/$NAME
for
DAEMON=/usr/local/bin/$NAME

cd /usr/bin

remove the old transmission

rm transmission*

/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start

Enjoy it.

Thanks cpgeek

OMG! THANK YOU emiralles!

that procedure certainly did the trick for me!

I think perhaps we should start adding some of these working procedures to the wiki.

Did you update the kernel in order to upgrade to Squeeze? Which kernel version are you running? Thanks!

Hello, I did manage to update to Squeeze keeping the same kernel.
I now realized that, when I give the shutdown command from either the command line, the default WebUI or even the hardware button, the unit does not shutdown anymore!
I can still hear the usual noise of the hard drive shutting down but leds are still on (blue and orange intermittently flashing)
Reboot command still works as expected.

A question regarding the upgrade process: when I did perform apt-get dist-upgrade I was often ask to keep some config files or update them with the new one. Default answer would be to keep the original. What should I have done here?
Can please someone help me solve? Thanks!

Hello, an update from my side.
I successfully fixed the issue by just restoring the original version of the /etc/init.d/halt file that was updated during the distribution upgrare process.
Ciao

Hey there,

I tried to install sueeze following the instructions of cpgeek.

I followed the instructions beginning from installing a new firmware on the disk. Apart from some minor problems, I get stuck when it comes to the "apt-get dist-upgrade".

These are the last lines:

Code: Select all

dpkg: error processing gawk (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
configured to not write apport reports
                                      Errors were encountered while processing:
 gawk
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
I see no way to resolve this issue. Does anyone have an idea about this?

Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks!

have you solved your issue yet?

if no, did you encounter any errors in "apt-get update" ?

I have the same problem as Crimson above. Everything went fine until i tried to do apt-get dist-upgrade. No problems with apt-get upgrade.

While doing this apt-get update && apt-get install debian-archive-keyring && apt-get update i answered keep the old configuration files when asked about this.

This is the whole error message. There are some mentiones about ipkg which i had installed previously. Is this the problem?

Hope sombody is able to help me!

Edit: Reading the post for the 10th time i finaly saw that you keept the package maintainers version, wich i did not. Is there a way to redo this?

Edit: I think i fixed the configurationfiles, but still the same error

Solved: For some reason this fixed it export PATH=/usr/sbin:$PATH :)

While trying to make Transmission i encountered some issues. Had to insatall som aditional packages:

Code: Select all

apt-get install libssl-dev
apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
These packages i got from the squeeze repositories.

Also spent som time finding the config file for this install which was important cause whitelist prevented me from accessing the webinterface.

Code: Select all

/etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json
