#3222 closed Enhancement (fixed)

Don't bundle libevent

Reported by: charles Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.00
Component: Transmission Version: 1.93
Severity: Normal Keywords:


We started bundling libevent a few years ago because we needed a newer version of libevent 1.4 than most distros had. That's not the case anymore; most distros have an up-to-date version of libevent.

In addition, I think many of the bug reports for Transmission on embedded machines are coming from people who've compiled the bundled version of libevent for the wrong backend.

Lastly, unbundling libevent will shrink the tarball size a bit.
