Post Bittorrent + Mandrake HOWTO


Hi!
After a *lot* of frustration, I successfully got BT working on my MDK9 box! Yay!

I've put together a HOWTO on installing bittorrent on MDK9 (may also work on other systems with urpmi installed)

You can find it at:
hZttpZ:Z//sZhadZow_99.Ztripod.cZom/Zbittorrent_mdk9.1_howto.txt

(Remove the Z's to get the correct URL, stupid messageboard won't let me post it normally)

PLEASE MIRROR THIS FILE IF YOU FIND IT HELPFUL!
SEND ME FEEDBACK!
If you used this HOWTO, post your problems/success stories here too....

Or, you could just use urpmi.

Add the texstar rpm archive to urpmi and type

urpmi bittorrent-gui

This adds it to KDE menus and allows you to simply click on a .torrent link in konqueror (and I assume other browsers)

To add the urpmi archive, follow the instructions on the PLF page.
