  • SSL tracker support in Ubuntu Transmission

    This isn't a tutorial but more like a check this if you can't connect to trackers.
    I noticed that I wasn't able to connect to certain trackers, after digging a little deeper there was a reoccuring pattern of the tracker using ssl/https. There is a known bug in Ubuntu,
    libgnutls26 2.12.14 breaks SSL tracker support in Transmission (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...26/+bug/937537). In order to fix this, just update that libgnutls package.
    In a terminal:
    Code:
    wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gnutls26/libgnutls26_2.12.20-2_i386.deb
    wget http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/g/gnutls26/libgnutls26-dbg_2.12.20-2_i386.deb
    
    sudo dpkg -i libgnutls26_2.12.20-2_i386.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libgnutls26-dbg_2.12.20-2_i386.deb
    
    sudo reboot
    You probably don't need the debug utilities but I grabbed them anyway.
    I hope this helps anyone who is stumped on why they can connect to certain trackers but not others using Ubuntu and Transmission.
