Thank you for the tutorial on method of updating Transmission to latest Optware feed. Your method worked perfectly.
Via SSH and using Nano I created a file named Reinstall in the appropriate directory. /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Admin/Mybook_Mgr/Transmission
The file had only some commented out lines of text, nothing else. Then I went to MyBook Manager and selected Configure under the Transmission icon. The automatic process then stopped the transmission daemon, uninstalled the old version, pulled in the Optware feed with the new version, unpacked it, installed the new version, and then restarted the transmission daemon.
There are a couple of points in case anyone else uses this method (which i highly recommend!). There is no need to worry about any running torrents you might have in the TR-Downloads folder as they will remain intact. The other item is that the process automatically deletes the Reinstall file that the user placed in the /shares/internal/PUBLIC/WWW/Admin/MyBook_Mgr/Transmission folder, so that this is a one time process and will not happen again with the next start up of Transmission! very clever TeinturMan!
