Description Ondřej Lysoněk 2020-09-30 14:09:25 UTC
Description of problem:
This bug is a tracker for the following upstream issue to make sure it gets fixed in Fedora:
https://github.com/transmission/transmission/issues/1437

The issue is preventing us from dropping a downstream libevent patch.
https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/libevent/blob/4ab7742daa048ca9df284814e36361a06028d1ee/f/0001-Revert-Fix-checking-return-value-of-the-evdns_base_r.patch

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
transmission-3.00-5.fc34

How reproducible:
The easiest way to reproduce the issue is to build transmission against a libevent version that does not contain the downstream patch. The build will fail on a test suite failure.

Comment 1 Ben Cotton 2021-02-09 15:19:19 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 34 development cycle.
Changing version to 34.
