slint and transmission-cli questions

Hello Anonymous;)

I just built and installed transmission, using the SlackBuild from here:
I ran the script directly but could as well have run as root:
spi -i transmisson
(to get the package built and installed. By default all parts are built, this includes beyond the cli: GTK, Qt and the daemon.)

Then I issued this command:
transmission-cli -w /tmp
I get the same errors, however it works

didier[~]$ transmission-cli -w /tmp

So I don't think you should worry about the errors.

I never used transmission before so can't answer your other question, but I am CCing B. Watson, the transmission SlackBuid maintainer, who certainly knows more.

> Anyone running transmission-cli on slint?  I get a couple errors when it starts up I think I can turn off by disabling port mapping with the -M option.  Apparently transmission-cli expects to be on systemd machines because both error messages want /etc/sysctl.conf to be updated and have lines added to it.  I don't know what to do for system v systems.  Also, I don't know what port mapping would get me if it were enabled as well as disabled.  Transmission-cli runs after these errors though.
