Generic / Re: What does "Save Resume Data Interval" do?

Default: 60 min

I have no info on the actual implementation, but as far as I can tell it just writes out the current state of things. Like the present torrent state and such.
But... FIXME!

- I have removed ReCAPTCHA as a few users have expressed their distaste in it. And I totally understand why. Sadly it didn't really defeat spammers either.
- We'll possibly migrate to phpBB as SMF has not received any updates for several .... years now? Besides minor fixes, that is. It's still in the work, if the migration actually happens, I'll put the forum in maintenance mode to avoid any lost posts.

Windows / Re: can't verify pgp signature. first time with this

SHA and PGP are two different things.
SHA is to verify integrity. Meaning, no one messed with the file, the uploaded program. And to make sure it's downloaded OK.

To verify SHA:
$ sha256sum qbittorrent_4.1.8_x64_setup.exe
62e5ea323a9e4d922d7919d9747ee6d598eb24546e896e2b4990e612e3b41b19  qbittorrent_4.1.8_x64_setup.exe

(to my best understanding, not a hardcore gpg user)

To verify GPG:
- Download the public key (top of the Download page). It's an .asc. Import it to gpg.
$  gpg --import 5B7CC9A2.asc
- Download the installer / tarball and the .asc for it. For example [qbittorrent_4.1.8_x64_setup.exe] [qbittorrent_4.1.8_x64_setup.exe.asc]
$   gpg --verify qbittorrent_4.1.8_x64_setup.exe.asc qbittorrent_4.1.8_x64_setup.exe

Windows / Re: qBittorrent malicious

It somehow makes me laugh inside when this type of topics are being opened.

Well, about 90% of the antivirus market is straight junk. Only a very few remained respectable in the game.
99% of their features is snake oil. Even the very best has junk included.
And 100% of the customer firewalls are also just snakeoil... (*)

The security industry is a joke. I mean look at Avast, it has ~30 tick boxes during install, and you practically need only 2 to have proper protection.
All the rest? Upsell junk.

(*) Software firewall
- only makes sense if it's DENY ALL. which is very rare as it interferes with daily PC use and a normal user cannot even configure that.
- even if it's DENY ALL, a malicious software could just mask it's traffic through something else, or just use some exploit to allow traffic for itself without user interaction.

Must be this. It can act up even if the program is not digitally signed... :/

Once you have everything set, you could try moving back to Windows.
I used "MSYS2" when I had to do Qt under Windows. It even has a static Qt build available

It's practically like Arch Linux... on Windows. For coding/development/compiling.

Good luck! :)

(I couldn't reach higher speeds due to local speed bottleneck. 99% disk use.) If I had a decent SSD or a RAID array, I could defo max out 1gbps+.

I don't believe page faults have any significance at all.

"A hard page fault is when the memory manager finds that the block of memory its needs is not in RAM. That memory has been swapped out to disk, and your system slows down because it takes more time to get it from there. Add more memory to your system to reduce the number of page faults and improve performance."

IMO the peak fault happens at you when you run out of ram / don't have stuff cached.
You could just...
- ignore it
- dump a ton more ram into your PC

And I don't know, I use the 64-bit. Always did. Never had any problems with it.

ps.: qBittorrent was running here but it had so little faults it didn't show up.

I'd definitely recommend using Ubuntu in a virtual machine to start out with. Windows + C++ has always been a mess to be fair.
Just throw up Virtualbox or you can even use Hyper-V. Grab Ubuntu, and use "sudo apt-get build-dep qbittorrent". This will grab all the deps required to build qBittorrent.

- You can also add the PPA version.
- You can then install QT's toolkit + QT Creator too.

It should all work. This is how I test small changes, the translations, etc. Works like a charm.

Your system seems funky. Maybe an anti virus is interfering? qBittorrent should just run fine, half the world uses it...

As far as I am aware, Qt Creator can handle the project. However, creating binaries is another story, read the wiki on that.

Linux / Re: Can't start downloads from search tab
« on: September 21, 2019, 11:25:21 PM »
If you start qBittorrent from terminal, like so:
$ qbittorrent

And you see a lot of lines/text coming out. If you go to Search, and do the double-click, do you see anything relevant in the terminal?

I'd recommend taking a look at a library like libtorrent-rasterbar (qBittorrent uses this one), or
I realize C++ might be a bit hard to use, but for a simple script, it shouldn't be too much of a challenge.
