slackware current bittorent package install question


after unsuccessfully attempting to follow the install directions from bittorrent.com i gave up and started using azureus. but some poking around slackware.com pointed me to current/bittorrent and the bittorent package...i thought perfect but here is what i get:
Code:
cinchel-08:13 PM-~>btdownloadgui.py 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py", line 13, in ?
    from wxPython.wx import *
  File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/wxPython/__init__.py", line 20, in ?
    import wxc
ImportError: libwx_gtk2u-2.4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
here is a list of what i think are relative installed packages (if i need to list more tell me, basically this is a pretty straight forward slack10 install on a old pII266 laptop)
Code:
cinchel-08:13 PM-~>ls /var/log/packages/*python*
/var/log/packages/gnome-python-2.0.2-i686-4dl
/var/log/packages/python-2.3.4-i686-1dl
/var/log/packages/python-tools-2.3.4-noarch-1
cinchel-08:15 PM-~>ls /var/log/packages/*wx*    
/var/log/packages/wxBase-2.4.2-i486-1  /var/log/packages/wxGTK-2.4.2-i486-1

thanks for any help in advance...and if there is more info that you all need let me know
cinchel

I would just use the btdownloadheadless.py or if you installed the slackpackage from slackware.com extra directory I would use btdownloadcurses.py. I have configured and installed wxPython and Python and everything to get the btdownloadgui.py to work and it really isn't worth the trouble just for the small "original" bit torrent box. Most of the time I just download the torrent file, save it to my home directory. In a terminal just type btdownloadheadless.py torrentname.torrent <enter>.
Works fine. Tells me how fast it is downloading and uploading. In my opinion there is no need for the gui one.

just install bittorrent from the source or a package for your distro.
in term just type btdownloadheadless.py torrentname.torrent <enter> and it should connect and begin to download.
if you want to limit your upload as I do.. btdownloadheadless --max_upload_rate x torrentname.torrent
