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.

Installing package ktorrent-2.2.6-i486-1...
ktorrent: ktorrent (BitTorrent program for KDE)
ktorrent: KTorrent is a BitTorrent program for KDE with many features:

ktorrent: capping, Internet searching, UDP trackers, port forwarding with UPnP,

ktorrent: KTorrent's developers are Joris Guisson and Ivan Vasic.
ktorrent: KTorrent is released under the GPL.
Executing install script for ktorrent-2.2.6-i486-1...
What do you mean "nothing happened"? Evidently something happened and I don't see anything wrong with that output. Are you having problems when you try to run KTorrent? If so, you really need to tell us what they are.
Edit: also, I don't know how wise it is to try and install a package built for i486 under x86_64. You may want to try finding a 64-bit package..
Go and get libgmp and install it. I don't know whether Slamd provides a package for it or not. If not, you'll have to look for an unofficial package, or build it from source. You might also want to run "ldd `which ktorrent`" to see if any other libraries show up as "not found".
