BitTorrent help


I do not have a clue what to do to make BitTorrent download a torrent, when i try to use the command "btdownloadcurses.py (long name).torrent" in a command line, it returns the following lines:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/btdownloadcurses.py", line 6, in ?
from BitTorrent.download import download
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/BitTorrent/download.py", line 4, in ?
from zurllib import urlopen
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/BitTorrent/zurllib.py", line 11, in ?
from urllib import *
ImportError: No module named urllib

Any help is appreciated.

Also, if I try opening the torrent with btdownloadgui.py, nothing happens.

perl version might be to old, or the code you got could be bad.. did you do "setup.py build && setup.py install"?

that should compile it maybe you ran without compiel and it just kinda ran it as a script (I could be completely off my rocker here so if I am wrong someone please correct me politely)

that is what I did and it works fine.

my perl and python are up to date, and the code _should_ work. "setup.py" returns an error in the command line, so i assume i dont have any setup.py.
