Bug Description

Please backport Transmission 1.34 to Hardy, the backported version in Hardy is old (1.22) and a lot of bugs have been squashed since then. Cheers

Transmission 1.34 requires a newer debhelper than what's available in Hardy, so some porting will be required. However, I'm more concerned at the moment that the previous backport of transmission seems to be uninstallable (it depends on a version of libpango that is newer than whats in Hardy!). Can someone else confirm that?

Ok, this was a user error bug, I didn't have updates enabled in my Hardy chroot :-).

Here's a patch to allow transmission to be backported.

Thanks for the response, but I just solved my problem by upgrading to
Intrepid...

There's a pending update to Intrepid already that fixes a crash. I'd prefer to wait on this until after that it released to -updates and then backport that:

 * debian/control: Add build-depend on dpatch
  * debian/patches: 10_fix_crasher_from_upstream.dpatch (LP: #274844)
   - Fixes: transmission crashed with SIGSEGV in g_markup_escape_text()
   - Backported from upstream: http://trac.transmissionbt.com/ticket/1314
   - Thanks to charles.
  * debian/patches: 20_add_X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain.dpatch (LP: #290769)
   - Re-add X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain to .desktop file
