rtorrent 0.7.x on arm devices (known problem) - request for testers
* Request for testers of arm-based systems *
Currently the 0.6.x etch version of rtorrent works just fine but the 0.7.x sid version does not. Actually
the problem a known problem with libTorrent ( http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/wiki/LibTorrentKnownIssues )
for which a work-round is to set some CXXFLAGS during configure.
This raises a potential release issue for the maintainers of rtorrent, will settings these CXXFLAGS to
fix 'NSLU2 routers and xscale based devices' as documented in the known issues break other ARM
I can confirm that setting the CXXFLAGS for configure on a NSLU2 when building libtorrent and
replacing the debian installed version with this built version works for me.
The maintainer is willing to create an arch-specific option if we can establish that this setting will not
break other ARM systems. Unfortunately I have no other arm-based systems.
So, could users of other ARM systems report here 1) whether debian rtorrent 0.7.x works for them as is; and/or
2) whether building libtorrent with CXXFLAGS="-O2 -mcpu=xscale -mtune=xscale" ./configure breaks
rtorrent for them.
