RPM for qBittorrent 4.1.6 for CentOS 7 released

Post by alannz » 2019/07/31 03:34:41

Support for qBittorrent on CentOS 7 has been lacking to date so I have built an RPM.
It installs the runtime environment for both qbittorrent (GUI) and qbittorrent-nox (headless version) in /usr/local.

After installing you should find a qBittorrent icon in your GUI menu or just run 'qbittorrent'.

It is avalable here:

Please let me know if it works for you or not by posting to this topic.

You have a dependency on "python33" which doesn't exist in any default repo.

Code: Select all

Error: Package: qbittorrent-run-4.1.6-1.el7.x86_64 (/qbittorrent-run-4.1.6-1.el7.x86_64)
           Requires: python33
Here is how to get python33 installed from the software collections repo:

Code: Select all

sudo yum install centos-release-scl scl-utils-build
sudo yum install python33
After that it installs correctly.

Thanks for building this, I was in the middle of trying to compile a new version for AlternativeWebUI support and it was frustrating to say the least.

python36 packages are in EPEL and there will be a python3 set of packages in 7.7 once it's released.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

I have tested this on a clean vanilla install of CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 and it works fine.

Please use yum to install it which automatically resolves all the dependencies.

# yum install qbittorrent-run-4.1.6-1.el7.x86_64.rpm

As regards my choice of python33, that's the version recommended by the qBittorrent developers. It is only used for the downloadable runtime search scripts.

I am looking forward to CentOS 8 as the software versions on 7 are getting a bit dated.

Please use yum to install it which automatically resolves all the dependencies.
I did use yum install on a fresh build. Until you install SCL and enable it, yum reports the install is broken and prompts you to do a --skip-broken, etc.

Also, the download is painfully slow, about 1Mbps. Probably because it looks like it's coming from New Zealand? You may want to host it on Github or somewhere with a CDN.

a) The default install of Python on C7 is 2.7 not 3.3.
b) The package is nothing to do with the CentOS project - you're adding 3rd party code to your install - please direct comments towards them.

We do not supply qbittorrent at all. The third party yum repo EPEL does supply it and it is v3.3.7 from there. No-one reputable supplies a newer qbittorrent package. Whoever provided this one is responsible for its support and you should contact them.

Hello
the latest version of qBittorrent (currently 4.17) is available from https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.qb ... Bittorrent
Download and install flathub repo https://flatpak.org/setup/CentOS/
(Edit) actually I'm not sure you even need to install the repo, I can't find it on my system, I just follow the command line instructions
flatpak install flathub org.qbittorrent.qBittorrent
and to run
flatpak run org.qbittorrent.qBittorrent
I'm happy with transmission so won't bother :)
