Corrected Guide

Thanks for sharing. Statically compiled binaries, that makes the upgrade easy :slight_smile:. I’m just not too happy that it’s not an official repository (when thinking about our native implementation) :thinking:.

Wishing you a happy new year in advance :tada::fireworks:.

Corrected commands.

Thank you for a quite extensive reply - it’s most appreciated.

I executed these commands as suggested and updated qbittorrent to 4.4.1
It works for now - I will get it some time to see if it become stuck again.
Also, I set the network interface to “eth0”, just in case. As VPN is not being used at all (yeah, my ISP and country doesn’t give a shit yet about hunting down P2P users) there was no other interface listed, except “lo” loopback interface.

Journalctl and “service qbittorrent status” commands show this:

Something went wrong?

Downgrade to 4.3.9 I also have problems with 4.4.1 there is something wrong with libtorrent used in qbitorrent.

Hi everybody,

Since I updated qbittorrent to 4.4.1 using KamikazeePL guide posted above, everything works as intended. No more stucked torrent issues. It just works and I am happy :slight_smile: Thanks KamikazeePL once again - I appreciate your time and help.

Since you mentioned having problems with this 4.4.1 version - do you mind to describe the issues, as I do not notice any hiccups on my side.
If there is something you would like me to check so a comparation could be made, let me know.

Also, there is 4.4.2 version out there on the official qbittorrent website… Worth upgrading?

The webui gets stuck when downloading torrents using qbt 4.4.2 version. Not sure if it’s because of the libtorrent version used.

I previously compiled qbt 4.4.1 with libtorrent 1.2.14 and it works perfectly. Thanks for sharing the qbt static version guide.

Hi,

So this guide only points to the latest version of QBittorrent (and I’m having problems with v4.4.5). How do I change the wget to point to version 4.3.9? Many thanks. @KamikazeePL @MichaIng

you need to look for other releases on the above linked GitHub repository Release qbittorrent 4.3.9 libtorrent 1.2.15 · userdocs/qbittorrent-nox-static · GitHub

I was experiencing the same behavior as well and downgrading to this version did the trick. Thanks to both for the instructions and help - @Joulinar and @KamikazeePL
