I have been tooling around for the past few weeks basically trying to emulate the Usenet bundle, that Ricardo has been so kind to make, but using torrents. I wanted to document what I have done here for anyone else that might be interested.
First I knew I wanted to try my hand at cross compiling for the Drobo and for that, Ricardo and DroboPorts were invaluable. So I set off to compile Transmission for the Drobo 5N and noticed the version on DroboPorts was not the latest version so I followed the instructions for cross compiling Transmission replacing this section
wget -O transmission-2.73.tar.bz2 http://download.transmissionbt.com/files/transmission-2.73.tar.bz2 tar jxf transmission-2.73.tar.bz2 cd transmission-2.73
wget -O transmission-2.77.tar.bz2 http://download.transmissionbt.com/files/transmission-2.77.tar.bz2 tar jxf transmission-2.77.tar.bz2 cd transmission-2.77
2.77 being the latest version at the time.
