in fedora 8 "Transmission BitTorrent Client" is installed by default
or ktorrent if you installed KDE
or install it
Code:
su -
yum search torrent
yum install ???????
------------
-- or --
yum install ktorrent
yum install azureus
yum install deluge
and run that

Yes,amule is known to be slow.I will recommend Frostwire,best p2p program I have ever used.It's free but you will need sun's jre 1.5.0 or higher to run it in it's best performance.There are other versions of jre too.

there is no reason to run anything more complex than bittorent and if you need a gui there is one . Azures or Frostwire that need to run in jvm just use system resources.
Transmission and ktorrent will do everything you need

Yes, it does work fine. Most if not all KDE appl will work fine in Gnome, provided you have the reqd libs installed

i mostly run Gnome but use a lot of kde apps .I just don't care for the kde desktop that much . ktorrent works fine on gnome
"yum install ktorrent " will install all the needed libs if kde is not installed

Hi, there. This is my first post in the forum while I'm looking for a means to download ed2k links (like emule or actually eDonkey links).

Is there a way to configure either ktorrent or Transmission to take care of these links?

Thanks.
