Transmission on SL 6

Building transmission on Scientific Linux 6.

I install all the dev tools and libraries during the install so I can’t tell you what might be needed on that end…


$ wget
$ tar xvf libevent-2.0.10-stable.tar.gz
$ cd libevent-2.0.10-stable
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make verify # (optional)
$ sudo make install

Transmission from SVN:

$ export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

To make sure libevent is found:
$ pkg-config –modversion libevent

$ svn co svn:// Transmission
$ cd Transmission
$ ./
$ make
$ sudo make install

Launch it:

$ transmission-gtk
