BitTorrent installation?


i posted about this yesterday, and thought i had installed bittorrent properly, and all was fine and good...

but it turns out it wasnt
i tried installing it through YaST, and as root with rpm -i bit*

then i tried to find it (find / -name Torrent -print) and just found python stuff?
i cant open any torrents, it just asks me to select a program to open it with, and i cant find a bittorrent executable file anywhere

now i just need to figure out how to make bittorrent work...

but it's a start, at least

The console client is called btdownloadcurses.py and the GUI one is btdownloadgui.py.

i havent tried using btdownloadcurses.py... b/c that seems like it would be more complicated

Using the curses (command line) interface is just as simple as using the GUI: btdownloadcurses.py debian-31r0a-i386-binary-1.iso.torrent will download the latest Debian DVD image.

I use the "screen" utility to keep the torrent going in the background even when I'm logged off. That handy trick cannot be done with the GUI.
