@davidalb97 Can you create an issue for that upstream?

davidalb97 commented on 2021-06-07 18:07

@txtsd Yes, it happens to me too. Could only mitigate the problem by removing/archiving torrents that had their data directory inaccessible.

Does this frequently freeze or crash for anyone else? I'm trying to find the root of the problem, and upstream is unable to help.

kinghat, installing jna (from aur) or a installing a jdk should fix the issue.

Thank @mrxx. Cheers

ector, it is always a good idea to be sceptical of AUR packages generally (after all, anyone can submit them) and especially if a PKGBUILD wants to execute an external shell file.

Here, the PKGBUILD is doing the same as you would do manually, it executes the installer provided as a shell script from the BiglyBT developers. If you do not trust them, download the installer yourself from their homepage and inspect it before installing this package.
