You might have better luck if you would switch to a supported version. FC6 is beyond EOL(end of life) there will be no further official updates for it of any kind.

As Laz suggested, you may want to consider using Fedora 8 (Fedora 9 is being released later this month). However, it is possible that uTorrent will run. In order to do this, Wine must be installed and you'll have to download the utorrent.exe from their site.

Once you have Wine installed, we need to make a change on it. Go to a terminal and type:
Code:
$ winecfg
(the '$' sign indicates a command prompt) a little window will pop up. Where it says "Windows Version" with a little drop down menu, we want to change that to Windows XP. Go to the Audio tab and make sure that the ALSA driver is selected. Then go to the drives and autodetect them.

Now, you can place your utorrent.exe file where ever you like. For this example, we'll have saved it to our desktop. Now, you'll run this command from a terminal:
Code:
[elwood@localhost Desktop]$ wine /home/elwood/Desktop/utorrent.exe
Where it says 'elwood' (that's my username), you'll want to change it to your username. Hit the enter key and that should bring up the prompt to install wine and it should work. That's what I did and it works for me.

Regards,

Brandon
