Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ok, I've had this running on Mandrake 10 before but now I'm running Mandrake 10.1. I installed both libraries that are needed along with the BT RPM....I then install the BT GUI RPM. This process worked for me before, twice, on Mandrake 10 but now, when something like FireFox tries to run it, nothing happens. I've also tried removing the packages and reinstalling them all but came to the same result.
I went to a console and ran the program as myself and as root and I get the same results every time.
Traceback (most recent call last):

You guys have any ideas how to get this to work, I have to have Bittorrent on my system.
Nobody has any ideas? I really need BT to work but I really don't know what that error means.
EDIT: Ok, I went and downloaded the newest versions of BitTorrent, wxPython and Python but now I'm getting this error.

I do have the wxpythonGTX RPM's installed as well, I've tried just about everything and well....I guess youcould say I keep walking into the same brick wall.
I can try that JAVA one but from what I can read, you have to start itmanually from the command prompt, I'd just like something I can click, tell it where to save and move on with life. What's really frustrating is that I've had this BT client working before but after I had to reinstall the system, it just won't work.
***My one major complaint about Linux....program installation is a pain in the butt***
