ktorrent 2.2.4 all the time stalled.


Hi:
Why is that? utorrent, running on Windows, immediately begins to download the same torrent. After some 8 hours, ktorrent too, and they told me its because it works with decentralized servers. But the diffrence is too great! (that's a question).

It has to do with magnet links. From a bit of googling (I had the same issue) it is a big issue with kTorrent. I switched to Transmission instead.

Here's a link to the bug report

Yes, but what is odd, is that, in the page, there were the two icons, side by side, for magnet and normal torrent, and I did clicked on the normal. And not only once. I think they are torrents with too few peers or none.
