I like to download using bit-torrent. Specifically, I enjoy using bittornado (in Windows at least). 3 months ago, when I ditched Windows for good, I installed bit-tornado using wine, because python gave me hella trouble. With sudden, horrid realization today, I discovered that bittornado in Wine was severely limited as downloading is concerned. Ever since I moved onto a faster network, I cannot get more than 24 Kb/s for download rate. I tried the same torrents in Windows and got a rate in excess of 60 Kb/s on average! So I decided to install the native linux version of bittornado one more time... of course, there was Python, waiting to screw me once again. (if you've seen my previous posts, you'll know that I absolutely HATE python. Short and simple: it hasn't ONCE worked right)
I downloaded the native linux version of bit-tornado, and used the python script to install. then I ran
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py", line 29, in ?

wx._core.PyNoAppError: The wx.App object must be created first!
I've installed wxPython MULTIPLE times, and it's still as useless as a screen door on a submarine. Can somebody PLEASE tell me what's going on???????????????????????????????
Side note: python sucks.
