Slackware 9.0 & bit torrent gui


I was wondering if anyone who uses bit torrent and slack 9.0 has ever got the btgui to work. I have looked around all over these forums for solutions..but no matter what i do i can not get the btdownloadgui to load. So i figured i should goto this forum and ask..and maybe i'll get help. Thanks.

Yep you need to have Python and wxPython installed,

i know i have python 2.3 installed..cause i do a python at a prompt and it tells me...as far as wxPython....i am pretty sure i installed it..but i guess i didn't do it correctly because the gui still doesn't come up.

Go here :
http://slackpack.tripleg.net.au/slac.../wxgtk-python/
Grab everything, read README, fetch wxPythonSrc from the url mentioned in README, run ./*.Slackbuild and u'll have nice wxPython pkgs to install
on your slack box.

ran those scripts..installed the pkgs...still won't load the gui. dunno why..guess i'll have to put up with running it in the terminal (which i always manage to close out....which is why i prefer the gui). if anyone can think of anything else..or maybe something i'm doing wrong..feel free to tell :d

thanks.

I have custom-made pkgs for bittorrent, wxgtk, wxpython that work great here. However I' ve made them on -current (aka against glibc-2.3.2), if you run -current and have any ftp or something I could send them over.
pm me if interested.

But sometime soon in the next few days i'll be able to setup a way for you to get me those files. I would have pm'd you..but it isn't letting me use that function. Thanks.

I now can put them on an anonymous ftp server at my work. Give me your e-mail to contact you for more info & give you the ip address & stuff.

simplest instructions woulr be to get get wxgtk and wxpython (you need fresh copys, not just an environment where you did "make distclean" or something so just delete anything old you had and extract both so they are brand new
change wxgtk's name to "build"
put build inside wxpython
make sure your root
cd wxpython/build and now the part you where probably screwing up on
1)export WXPREF=/usr/lib/wxPython
2)"../configure --with-gtk --prefix=$WXPREF --enable-rpath=$WXPREF/lib --with-opengl --enable-geometry --enable-optimise --enable-debug_flag && make && make install"
(yes that WAS 2 DOTS AS IN PARENT DIRECTORY CONFIGURE, you have to do it like that and not the old ./configure)
3)ldconfig to catch any new libraries
4)cd ../wxPython
5)python setup.py WX_CONFIG=$WXPREF/bin/wx-config build install

afterwords just try opening a torrent and make sure you have it set to open with /pathtoyourbittorrentsources/btdownloadgui.py and presto a nice working bt gui
