I find a answer from here.

I made armhf transmission packages on the RPi and they are in the testing repo. Enable the testing repo on the Primary tab of omv-extras and it should find the packages.

Hope this can help.

  • how exactly do you 'enable the testing repo on the primary tab of omv-extras'?
