 +====== How to install Transmission daemon and client on CentOS6 ======
 +
 +There are two ways to install Transmission on CentOS6. The first method is very simple and uses the RPM from the EPEL repository. ​ The Second method requires more work because we will build it from source. ​ The advantage of building from source is that you will have the latest version of Transmission installed, the downside is that you will have to continue to upgrade it by hand if a security issue is even discovered.
