Re: Error during build of svn rev 14138

Aha, thanks mathedit to pointing that out. I hadn't realized G_DEFINE_QUARK was such a recent addition to glib -- I'll add a backwards compatibility macro as you suggested.

Re: Some very bad decisions in transmission

Wait Jordan, are you telling us that when one hits "verify local data" Transmission loads the entire torrent into memory as one big chunk of data? Instead of, say, initially loading the data for 10-20 pieces and then loading in new one as existing ones are verified? No, of course not. lib...

Re: Some very bad decisions in transmission

Under the approach you're describing, the steps would be: * Transmission prefetches 15 blocks for torrent A, peer A1 because it knows it will be sending them soon. * Transmission prefetches 15 blocks for torrent A, peer A2 because it knows it will be sending them soon. * Transmission prefetches 15 ...

Re: Some very bad decisions in transmission

[*]Also consider the case where you have a dozen torrents actively seeding when you hit 'verify' on the 4.3 GB torrent. If we flood the cache with the contents of the 4.3 GB torrent, what's that going to do to the cache hit/miss stats on the other torrents?[/list] So, that's our other scenario, whe...

Re: Some very bad decisions in transmission

IMO the question of caching pieces from "Verify Local Data" is a pathological variation of bug #5102. It's one thing to not remove recently-loaded pieces from the cache when we're in the middle of uploading. It's another thing to choose to keep the entire torrent in memory. ⋅ Con...

Re: Privacy implications - more configuration options needed

I don't really understand what OP is requesting in this thread.

When you're done with a torrent, removing it will delete the .torrent and the .resume file.

Re: Transmission crashes

MarsX, since you're experiencing a Transmission crash on Ubuntu, it's best to use the Ubuntu crash reporter to submit this issue to Launchpad. Launchpad's advantage over these forums is that it'll usually generate a great backtrace / crash report so that the Transmission developers can see what code...

Re: Is Gearbox Dead?

This is the first time I've heard that anyone shipped Gearbox. Gearbox was an experiment for writing a Transmission Web Client in Ext JS. IMO the code had some good ideas in it but the Transmission team wasn't really happy with the look & feel of the Ext JS client, so we stopped development on i...

Re: Ratio not working

Yeah, check the totals in ~/.config/transmission/stats.json. Those should be the total # of bytes up and down.

Re: Download Limits

Transmission doesn't do anything like requiring donations for extra functionality.

The message you're seeing is most likely coming from the tracker, as is the parallel download limit. The people who can answer your questions are at your tracker's forums.

Re: Suddenly Pausing

Is there an error message for that torrent? One thing I've seen that has symptoms similar to this is if you start downloading to a directory that you don't have permissions to, or is full, etc... the torrent will download blocks into its memory cache, and then after a few minutes hit an I/O error wr...
