    11.10 Transmission don't start

    Hi! I updated from Natty to Oneiric normally, and I have this problem that when I try to start torrentfile, I click torrent file and select start(or open) with Transmission (Like normally), but Transmission just don't start, or it starts like an hour(if starts) after that. I tried to kill transmission-gtk process and start it again but that has done no difference.

    In Natty Transmission worked great, but with Oneiric I have this problem, Thanks for the help!

    Re: 11.10 Transmission don't start

    did you try running transmission-gtk direct from terminal and seeing if it gives an output?

    Yep, nothing happens, it just hangs.

    I even updated Transmission using PPA, but that makes no difference to startup problem.


    EDIT: After a while in terminal appears text "connect: connection timeout"(or something like that in english)

    It has failed also with me : Transmission will not work anymore since I graduate to Oneiric.

    Transmission works fine with my 11.10. Maybe something messed up in upgrade, fresh install?

    Re: 11.10 Transmission don't start

    Doesnt work for me either, segfaults after a few seconds

    [1]+ Segmentation fault transmission


    [189715.724207] transmission[11046]: segfault at 3669c90 ip 00007f96e34b74cb sp 00007f96da89b950 error 6 in libc-2.13.so[7f96e343d000+195000]


    reinstalled transmission and all the libc 2.13's mentioned in dpkg -l

    unsure where to move from here

    Re: 11.10 Transmission don't start

    ok so reading on another tread they said to delete the ~/.config/transmission folder

    no help, if anything worse, well maybe not worse, but defn more verbose.

    Re: 11.10 Transmission don't start

    Well I got transmission working again

    sudo apt-get remove --purge transmission transmission-common transmission-gtk
    sudo updatedb
    locate transmission
    sudo rm -R [anything related to transmission]
    # dont forget ~/.config/transmission and ~/.cache/transmission
    sudo apt-get install transmission

    then use /usr/bin/transmissio-gtk to start transmission

    been working overnight so I'll call it good. Odd things were it doesnt seem to have a built in list of blocklist anymore so I had to find one online.

    http://blocklistpro.com/download-center/p2p-ip-filters/

    enabled webif and lowered the default port number and Im good to go.

    FYI, I experienced a similar regression in Oneiric and I eventually tracked it down and reported a bug at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...on/+bug/916578. I mention a work-around at the end.

    Re: 11.10 Transmission don't start

    Hi,

    I'm stuck following your instructions at the rm line:

    sudo rm -R [anything related to transmission]
    # dont forget ~/.config/transmission and ~/.cache/transmission
    sudo apt-get install transmission

    then use /usr/bin/transmissio-gtk to start transmission

    looked up man pages and tried searching online for syntax for 'rm' or 'find' or 'pipe,' but don't know what to put in:

    [anything related to transmission]

    in order to remove all instances of transmission.

    Thanks in advance.
