Question Command line Bit Torrent problem


Trying to get bittorrent working on my Linux box. I'm running ClarkConnect 2.0 (based on RH7.3) and need to run a command line bittorrent client.

I downloaded and installed the following RPMs:

bittorrent-3.2-0.test.rh90.noarch.rpm
gtk+-1.2.10-15.i386.rpm
wxPythonGTK-py2.2-2.4.0.7-1.i386.rpm
XFree86-libs-4.2.0-8.i386.rpm
XFree86-Mesa-libGLU-4.3.0-2.90.55.i386.rpm

Running bttest says everything passed.

btdownloadheadless.py sometorrent.torrent
or
btdownloadcurses.py sometorrent.torrent

returns

error: Too many args - 0 max.

btdownloadheadless.py --url <edited for filter>/sometorrent.torrent
or
btdownloadcurses.py --url <edited for filter>/path/sometorrent.torrent

returns

error: got bad file info

Tried upgrading wxPython
rpm -Uvh wxPythonGTK-py2.3-2.4.0.7-1.i386.rpm

bttest.py is okay
btdownloadheadless.py still returns Too many args - 0 max.

Any suggestions? GUI clients won't work for me in this case, so don't suggest Auzureus or whatever it's called.

Thanks,

Jon

Hmmm... what is the version of python you are using? I use btdownloadcurses.py with python 2.3.4 and it works great. Perhaps try updating python.
