Transmission 2.13 fails to build

Reported by: carsomyr@… Owned by: mnick@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.9.2
Keywords: haspatch Cc: trier@…
Port: transmission

Description

Please find attached main.log and a patch archive, which upgrades transmission to 2.20b2. It would appear that 2.13 used libevent 1.4, while the libevent port itself has been upgraded to libevent 2. Incidentally, 2.20b2, although still a beta release, builds off of the new libevent.

Normally we wouldn't update to a beta release. There is a libevent1 port that can be used for software not compatible with libevent 2.

Sure, but don't they live in the same namespace? If so, having something build is better than having nothing build at all.

In any case, 2.20 is out. I've attached a new patch archive, patch-2.2.0.tgz.

Sorry, I meant 2.21.

Can this be added to the portfile instead, so that Transmission builds properly using the port command?

How do we apply the patch file? After downloading it (and uncompressing), I type

tar tvf patch-2.21.tar

to list the contents of the tar file, but I get the error message:

tar: Unrecognized archive format: Inappropriate file type or format
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

Why not try unzipping first?

tar xfz patch-2.21.tgz

I'm closing this ticket as Transmission has been updated to 2.20 in r76574 and should buid correctly now. Thanks.
