Transmission 2.30 on Mac OS 10.4

Postby Rudloff » Mon May 16, 2011 3:23 pm

Hello,
I am still using Tiger but wanted to have the last version of Transmission so I have built Transmission 2.30b4 for Tiger.
It uses the Qt interface so it doesn't look as good as the Cocoa version but it is a small price to pay for DHT, UDP trackers, magnet links, etc.

PS : It is an universal binary.

Thank you very very much!!!

Maybe transmission coder can give you a little space in download page or create a qt/daemon universal repository.

OK, daemon works perfectly launched in its folder; I added web interface in /usr/local/share and it work too.

Pcc daemon now need only an installer and a startup script.

Thank you again for your work.

Here is an installer (that will install in /usr/local/...) and a very basic launch script.
I have tried to create a launchd agent but am not really familiar with these things so I gave up when the daemon ended up being launched 4 times at startup...

Great. You revitalized my 12" PPC with Tiger. Thanks for that.

A few issues, if you are interested:

Drag and drop doesn't work, not after restart, not after suffix-change to go with build. Only manual opening of torent.

"could not connect to server" on web-interface is the "welcome message" - I guess that is the home seed-box - but I cannot access the preferences. They do not come up.

But nice one, the web-interface.

cheers,
thimk

PS: Afterthought: How come the webinterface has the new gui, while the PPC build has the old?

Well, it is not a native Cocoa application, so I am not sure things like drag and drop can work.

Did you use my installer to install the daemon and the Web interface ? It should work.

It is not the old Cocoa GUI but the QT GUI originally created for Linux.
The Web interface is written on HTML/JavaScript and does not depend on the main application.

Yes, I used your installer.

When Clicking the preferences now, I get the same image up, which greets me upon opening: "Connection failed. Could not connect to server. You may need to reloade the page tio reconnect"

But to WHICH server? Where do I set the server, if not under preferences?

It is a bit unstable, Transmission. Slow to respond to key clicks, eg. on pause, and easily hangs in the proces.

@thimk

check with Activity Monitor if the daemon is running.
I use the demon since Rudloff released it on my G5 whitout problems

If you launch the Web interface from transmission-qt you have to set the preferences in the Web tab of transmission-qt's preferences.
If not, you have to configure it with the daemon.

If he launches the server from QT, it won't appear in the activity monitor as it is part of the application.
