Cannot build Transmission on Xcode with svn source code

Post by lezh » Mon May 04, 2020 2:06 am

The purpose of the build is to increase the memory cache size to avoid disk throttling, which is only achievable on MacOS by building Transmission from source code according to this post:
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16738

The wiki of building transmission suggests that Xcode can only work on the svn source code, not the one from github.

So, I pulled the code from svn:

Code: Select all

$ svn co svn://svn.transmissionbt.com/Transmission/trunk Transmission

Then, I opened it with Xcode. I built Transmission there, and hit an error:

Code: Select all

macosx/Controller.h:26:9: error: 'transmission.h' file not found with <angled> include; use "quotes" instead
#import <transmission.h>
        ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        "transmission.h"
1 error generated.
It seems the svn source code is either broken, or no longer compatible with this version of Xcode:

OS: Mac OS X 10.15.4 (19E287)
Xcode: 11.4.1 (11E503a)
Source code: revision 14736 (svn)
