As you may know,transmission depends on libcurl>=7.16.3,and the VL's one is 7.16.2.I installed the latest curl(7.19...),that is said to provide libcurl with it.But transmission's ./configure still can't find the new libcurl.What am i doing wrong?Smiley

One of two possible problems. Either the
link to the lib was not created.

Did you use ldconfig after you installed libcurl?

The other would be that the .configure script is
looking for libcurl in another directory. Run the
script look at where the script is looking for libcurl.

First time i didn't use ldconfig,because i didn't know about it:)So nothing worked.Now i used it,and still no results.

The problem is verbose, the package is not where the
script is looking for it. So either specify the path or
create the path.

You need the path to be the sane as the older package.

As root open a terminal and type:

updatedb

wait until that completes.

Now type:

locate libcurl

You will see the path. You can also look in /var/log/packages for the
old libcurl package and create a new package with the updated
information.

There are libcurls in /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib.What should i do with them?There also were some in /usr/man,but i think they're not what i need.And how do i create a package to update the old one?

You should run
Code:
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./confugure
instead of just
Code:
./configure
from the transmission directory
