You could use gtk-gnutella. It will certainly use less system resources than Lime/FrostWire, but personally I always thought the interface was unusably terrible.

For BitTorrent there's rtorrent. Configurable, stable, well-designed, and extremely light-weight.

Installed. Looks OK (AMule), but what is needed to connect? Listing servers?

In the "Servers" field, insert this: http://ocbmaurice.dyns.net/pl/slist....erver-best.met and hit ">". Then connect.
