Update qBittorrent to v4.2.x

Post by iFelix18 »

The installable version is v4.1.5, but the latest available release is v4.2.3.

Since v4.2.0 advanced options are available in WebUI, very useful in a headless server.
Can I install it?

Hi,

many thanks for your report. qBittorrent is installed from Debian APT packages. The latest available version is 4.1.5-1+deb10u1. There no other version available.

So I'm now seeing 4.2.5 listed as an unstable sid package. As I'm experiencing SOCKS5 issues apparently addressed in this update I'd like to give it a try.

I'm very inexperienced though, what changes do I need to make to try this version?

you would need to add sid repo to your source list and create a preference entry to avoid that other packages than qBittorrent will be updated. what kind of system/SBC you are running?

I'm running dietpi 6.31.2 on a Rpi4 4gb

My current sources list has this-

deb http://raspbian.raspberrypi.org/raspbian buster main contrib non-free rpi

What would I add or change it to? Apologies as I'm not familiar with this.

ok I was able to update qBittorrent

Code: Select all

root@DietPi3:/var/log# qbittorrent-nox -v
qBittorrent v4.2.5
However it's not starting afterwards

Code: Select all

qBittorrent version: v4.2.5

Caught signal: SIGSEGV

not sure if it's working by simply adding testing repository.

yeah my quick and dirty try updated more packages to testing repo as it was required by qBittorrent. But it'S causing other thinks to fail now.
