#29417 reopened defect

transmission-x11 1.73 does not build on Tiger

Reported by: tael67@… Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.9.2
Keywords: tiger Cc: mnick@…
Port: transmission-x11

Description

The last version of Cocoa transmisison for Tiger is 1.54 but I thought I might be able to build th GTK version. It seems that I was wrong :

Error: Target org.macports.configure returned: configure failure: shell command failed (see log for details)
Log for transmission-x11 is at: /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_net_transmission-x11/main.log
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

I think the port should at least check for OSX version and output a more friendly error message.

FYI you can download an older version of Transmission that works on Tiger here: https://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/PreviousReleases

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by tael67@…

Thanks but I need a client that supports DHT (which was added to Transmission with 1.70).

This port has no maintainer and I use this application quite a lot, so can I take maintainership of the port ?

Thanks for volunteering! It would be good for this port to have a maintainer. It would be ideal if the same person or persons could maintain both transmission and transmission-x11 and keep them in sync. I've already asked the maintainer of transmission if he would also like to maintain transmission-x11 but have not received a reply yet.

I was unclear why transmission-x11 has an +aqua variant. It doesn't seem to work, and its purpose seems to be to do the same thing that the transmission port already does, isn't it? If so, I might suggest removing the +aqua variant.

comment:8 Changed 8 years ago by tael67@…

Yes, the +aqua variant seems to do the same thing as the other port. Unfortunately, I can't work on both ports as the aqua version will not build on my system.

Replying to rudloff@…:

"gmail.com:tael67" is listed as the maintainer of three ports -- dylibbundler, gtk-quartz-engine, jslint. Should we change these to "strasweb.fr:rudloff"?

comment:11 Changed 8 years ago by rudloff@…

Yes, tael67 still works, but it would be better to replace it.

comment:12 Changed 8 years ago by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)

Updated dylibbundler and jslint maintainer addresses in r78871. I forgot I hadn't committed gtk-quartz-engine yet.

So, there are many files attached to this ticket now... which one(s) do I need to get to apply to the port?

Sorry for all the different files. Here is an archive with all the files.

comment:14 Changed 7 years ago by rudloff@…

Any news on this ? I would like to update the port to the last version of Transmission (and simplify the +bundle variant) but I am waiting for this bug to be closed first.
