#4316 closed Bug (fixed)

Transmission 2.31 crashes (segfaults) immediately after launch

Reported by: draga Owned by: jordan
Priority: High Milestone: 2.32
Component: libtransmission Version: 2.31
Severity: Major Keywords:


Hello, I've compile Transmission 2.31 on NetBSD. It compiles, but as soon as I launch transmission-daemon, it segfaults. I've seen similar problems in the forum, also with Slackware, so it seems it's not just me.

Here's what my gdb says:

Could you please have a look at it?

r12514 libtransmission/ (fdlimit.c fdlimit.h session.c session.h transmission.h): (trunk libt) #4315 "Transmission 2.31 crashes (segfaults) immediately after launch" -- remove the "max-open-files" code.

max-open-files might have been a nice configuration option once, but (1) we've never advertised it in the gui apps, and (2) the crazy cases are causing more trouble than this feature is worth. It's more complicated now after #4164 -- see #4294, #4311, and this ticket.
