Within the application by pressing ctrl+F1.

I use lighttpd and I didn't had issues before and till now the new version seems to work also fine.

Within the application?

We are using the beta version of rutorrent to get things working again. It might be the case that the developer didn't change the version string for the beta release in the app itself

I just update to 3.10_beta, everything fine but the version (Ctrl-F1) remains 3.9. Is this correct?

TheGoliath commented on 2020-05-10 11:04

Updated the package. Can you test things out and give some feedback if sth isn't working properly?

@tuxayo, I used your PKGBUILD and it works for me. Thanks.

Here is the PKGBUILD that I modified to install version 3.10-beta.

Please check the diff with the original, I'm not sure what I did is clean.

I confirm, rutorrent 3.9-1 is broken. The fix reported by andreibsk works fine. thanks !

happycamper commented on 2019-07-28 16:25

Just installed with Apache and connected to rtorrent, but got the following error. I also can't load the settings popup:

ruTorrent cannot determine the UID of rTorrent user

And another required dependency (aside from rtorrent itself):


andreibsk commented on 2019-07-27 11:10

After I upgraded rutorrent to version 3.9-1 and rtorrent to 0.9.8-1 rutorrent seemed to have some communication problems with rtorrent. Symptoms included failure to load the settings popup, failure to detect and check the open connection port, etc.

The fix for this seems to be in the following commit and can be applied manually after install in the application folder (/usr/share/webapps/rutorrent/):

@ljmf00 any chance of an update please?
