please do not use pink/purple colored text

assuming you DO have the required support contract
RHEL 5.9 is in testing
5.9 represents the end to normal "level 1" support

and this IS a headless server and gtk2 nor qt3 are installed

rtorrent should be in the RHN repo

rtorrent is a text terminal client
( no gui needed)

su -
yum search torrent
--- then from the list, install it ------
yum install rtorrent
if not then install the third party repo "rmpforge"


RPMforge is INCOMPATIBLE !!!! with RHN upstream
you MUST MUST USE !!! yum-priaroites plugin and configure it!!!!!!!
or use " protectbase"
otherwise you WILL FUBAR ( look it up) your rhel5 install

then once the rpmforge reop is installed
install rtorrent -- see the above yum search
