Description of problem:
Transmission bittorrent client chokes/overloads some models of routers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Vendor has released a fix. Vendor is on version 1.0.4 at the present time.
Transmission client needs to be updated to pull in vendor's fixes.
Transmission 1.03 is in updates-testing or can be found at
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=33643 - does that fix the
problem or is it newly fixed in 1.04 (which I'm sure Denis will build eventually)
The problem is fixed in version 1.0.2. Later versions should also fix the
problem. I'll install from updates-testing and verify this particular rpm.
Well 1.04 has a remote crash bug fix, so I'm pushing that on both F-8 and F-9.
transmission-1.04-1.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
transmission-1.04-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update transmission'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F8/FEDORA-2008-1648
I have been running the 1.03 client for a week. I haven't seen any issues with
it. The bug is fixed. I'll try the 1.04as well.
Problem is transmission is pushing updates faster than Fedora is :-)
I haven't had any problems with either 1.04 or 1.05, so i'm guessing 1.04 will
converge as stable on F-8. unless people are reporting problems.
transmission-1.04-1.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
