is not a common client ( is is not even a client but ONLY a gui to the text only rtorrent)
BitTorrent and Ktorrent should be in the centos repos
yum search torrent
-------- then from the list -------
yum install bittorrent
now the text only rtorrent ( back end and REQUIRED for "rutorrent" )should be in the repos and should be in the above list
also is there an ALL IMPORTANT reason to use the older 5 and NOT the current centOS 6.2
CentOS 5.7 is the ONLY supported version of the 5 series
so if this is NOT 5.7 you need to upgrade .
CentOS is a free rebuild of "Red Hat Enterprise Linux " and as such is like RHEL in that it is not a good choice for a average HOME system
It is good for running the office and for a server or in a Laboratory, but not so much as a everyday home system .
so is there an overriding NEED to use the older cent 5 on a home system ?
red hat requires a support contract and CentOS and ScientificLinux assume that YOU ( the user) can be your OWN system administrator
and can do things like set up a network or keep the system up and running with NO HELP ( there is the internet )
so the documentation is well not there .
there is the cent wiki
and the CentOS forum
( for the older 5 )
then the Red Hat documentation
and last Google
now you can edit and Change the extensive fedora guides to Cent- but you have to be able to do that
-- it is not easy to use fedora 16 "help" pages for Cent --
they are similar to each other but NOT the same
Back to Cent5 and the repos
did you read the cent wiki page ? and HEED all the warnings and install( and set up) yum-priorities
In CentOS-5 there ARE A LOT of repos that are INCOMPATIBLE with each other .( mostly fixed in 6 )
i see "protectbase" installed that might be causing the 32 bit VS 64 bit program issue in the first post
i would use "yum-plugin-priorities" instead
UNLESS you MUST remain 100% compatible with the up-stream RHEL 5 to use a program built FOR RHEL5 ( one you paid a lot of cash for)
so fixing this
install and configure "yum-plugin-priorities"
turn on these repos
( they are installed but off)
centosplus ( set priorities to use this OVER rpmforge)
rpmforge-extras ( set priorities o use all rpmforge LAST )
then try a update
