    10 Using the excellent tools from the Fedora project [http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/MinGW] we can build Transmission for running on Windows (XP and above).

    1212You don't need to install Fedora 11 (or 12, or 13), I run it under Windows on a virtual machine (VMWare Player [http://www.vmware.com/download/player/download.html]), the Fedora 11 image is from one of the available options [http://www.vmware.com/appliances/directory/cat/9833].

    3333I'm not building a multi-language version, just English, so I'm skipping the step about installing intltool (which is not in the yum repository, you have to build it, and I did for the Gtk version which requires it; not difficult).

     35(*) Note: I've also used "Mingw Cross Compiling Environment" [http://www.nongnu.org/mingw-cross-env/] which can be installed in any Linux (I used Gentoo) and build static linked versions very similar to what I describe here, Qt is part of that environment... but I had to change it to build dynamic apps for Transmission 2.00b1 since DBus is a new requirement and I couldn't make it link statically (a Qt problem really).
