    Hi Folks,

    So I've tried to download a couple of torrents recently and while I can open Transmission, it seems that actually starting a download causes it to crash out.

    The recently salvaged qBittorrent refuses to start at all for me. (It complains about a missing shared library... I'll have to update this post after with more details.)

    So.... help?

    In the past I have used Transmission a lot so it used to work fine.
    I don't recall using transmission with the latest firmware yet so maybe something got broken in the update process.

    Just downloaded 2 torrents with Transmission to test.
    Works fine on 1.72 and 1.73 for me.

    I noticed how it didn't like it when there was no internet connection when it started up, but that only resulted in not connecting to anything even after there was one until I restarted it, no crashes.

    So possibly a corrupted download somewhere at your end.

    Did you try copy pasting a magnet/torrent url?
    Perhaps the issue is I'm not downloading and then opening a torrent file to download, but using the "open url" feature.... hmm

    Both .torrent files and magnet links work for me.

    maybe apply the universal fix for these things: going into ./pandora/appsdata/ and deleting the transmission directory ?

    Here is the qBittorrent output. I was going to post my transmission log, but I don't think I can download torrents at work.

    Missing library; liblber-2.4, something to do with LDAP according to my search results. It may be possible to add this to the appdata folder, if you know where, and if it's been set up to load libs from the mount point.

    Check if you have these:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 835452 Mar 21 2010 /usr/lib/liblber-2.4.so.2.5.4
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 Dec 8 09:56 /usr/lib/liblber-2.4.so.2 -> liblber-2.4.so.2.5.4​

    My GUI is started, pretty hard to get something downloaded. No, scratch that... the client downloads nothing. I opened the same raspbian jessie torrent, and on my desktop I have full speed download... but 0% downloaded on the Pandora. ah... needed to restart it, now its downloading... funny. I see... main computer slurped all the bandwidth...

    Testing Transmission now:

    yup works too.

    @PokeParadox what is your version?

    cat /etc/issue
    2010.4-test-20141019
    uname -r
    3.2.69
    I think you have a different version?
    Pandora System Info says I have SuperZaxxon 1.72 (almost the latest version)
