howto create a torrent file?


Hi, i'm wondering howto create a torrent file?

Maketorrent doens't seems to work correctly with wine, and the sources does not include a makefile.

Are there any alternatives, i've heard that bittornado could do the job...?

Edit: without GUI just bash commandline

yes you can use bittornado.
There is a command to create a torrent file.

But azureus is still the best client to use on linux I think.

that is because the system does not find the command in the current directory.

btmaketorrentgui.py is supposed to be in your path so you don't have to type ./ before btmaketorrentgui.py

try

$btmaketorrentgui.py --help

to see the options.
