Transmission-daemon missing libevent-2.0so.5 and other errors


I have installed the following packages as per this guide (

  • transmission-daemon-mbedtls (because there is no package for transmission-daemon only)
  • transmission-daemon-cli
  • transmission-web
  • luci-app-transmission

When I tried to run transmission-cli, I got the following long list of errors.

I think some library was missing?

Also, I'm trying to run this on my GL-MT300N-V2 (if this is useful).

yeah, probably ... install it.

what openwrt version are you on anyway ?

transmission-daemon-cli doesn't exist in 19.07

It says I'm on "OpenWrt 18.06.1"

you should probably upgrade to 19.

note the URLs in the wiki below aren't pointing towards the most recent openwrt release (19.07.7)

Thanks. I figured.

Anyhow I will have to ditch the idea of using that mini router as my torrent box with minidlna server - internal flash is just too small.

Or is there a way to make openwrt use the mounted disk as additional disk space?

sure, it's 100% doable.

Thanks. Will figure it out :slight_smile:
