    I use Transmission for err... Downloading. The issue im having is that it seams to have to work for about 30 -40 minutes then develops a major memory leak and kills the computer. Only solution is a Hard Boot..

    Does anyone know how i can fix this?

    Cheers

    I was having the same problem!

    the short of it i found by limiting up and down to 70 and 210 KB/S it has been stable for 4+ days now. Previously it was crashing after about 15mins.

    running 1.60b1 200 global 60 per ... connections 2-3 up and down

    Hope that helps ! :)

    It seems as though its the download side that causes trouble as my upload cap is the same as it was, the download cap was previously over 500 )

    If you ever have trouble with Transmission, download the latest nightly build to see if that helps.

    I use my PowerBook to download subs everyday and I usually leave Transmission open even when I'm not using it. Never had it crash before even after a week.

    But I'm on a 1.5Mb plan. Speeds up to 192kbps. Whoo!

    Transmission is a torrent client that was designed to stop people using Torrents... (*Conspiracy Theory :D*)

    I would recommend that you check out other clients... such as Vuze or XTorrent.. I am told that BitRocket is also very good!!! I do have transmission... but only as a fall back...*The only thing that I like about it is the skin!!!
