Looking at:

uGet 2.2.0
qBittorrent 4.0.3
a backport of the upstream Debian 4.14.13 kernel

That's supposed to be in stretch-backports already: https://packages.debian.org/source/stre ... orts/linux

Wow, that was quick for backports. I didn't see anything about them fixing the missing libelf-dev header dependency in the upstream changelog, though. Maybe I can get Mike to work on that kernel with his new monster Xeon workstation...I don't know if he got the single or dual Xeon setup though.

It's a single. I'll take a look.

Yes, I'm improving and removing cruft from the PPA build procedure, too. The retroshare devs say that libsqlcipher0 3.2.0 in Stretch will make the program crash, so I backported the fixed upstream 3.4.1 version and making sure our Retroshare packages depend on the newer version.

There are some Retroshare packages in the openSUSE Build Service, but they seem out of date and abandoned. Maybe I'll add a repo with my improved builds. :cool:
