It's been quite a while since I wanted to upgrade Transmission and test the svn version, but Applecrow's download page gives a 404 error, so no svn debian package! So I thought I'd build one myself, and here it is, I give it to the world!
This package was built with the latest source tarball from Transmission's homepage using checkinstall. I need people to test it to see if it works properly.
The package installs Transmission to /opt/transmission
You might want to do this:
sudo ln -s /opt/transmission/bin/transmission-gtk /usr/bin/transmission-gtk
This will enable you to run Transmission by just typing 'transmission-gtk' into the terminal (without the quotes).
Download the package! - NOTE: A new package is already available, check the newer posts.
P.S. I need better hosting, if anyone can provide it please leave a comment with more info. Thanks!
