[RFE] latest transmission packages for EPEL6 (2.84)
Last modified: 2015-10-30 12:03:37 EDT
I was wondering if it would be possible to get the latest Transmission packages built for Centos 6.
EPEL 7 has the transmission 2.84 package built, would it be possible to port this back to the EPEL 6 repo?
There are numerous security fixes between the current version in EPEL6 (2.13) and the current version (2.84)
I see a similar request in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1118292
Unfortunately not, there are newer libraries required for newer versions of transmission that are frozen in time in RHEL6. The version in EPEL6 is the latest version available for the versions of libraries we have available. I do plan to try and backport some fixes but it's all about finding the time to work on it.
Thanks for the update. Yes that is unfortunate, but i understand the issue, i was afraid that this might be the response.
