Bittorrent oddity


Hi,

I used to download with bittorrent-console and one day it just died and i'm not sure why that happened, maybe it's because i installed mldonkey but i don't think it has something to do with that, anyway, when i try to run the bittorrent console i get this message:

[root@fedora DOWNLOADS]# bittorrent-console
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/bittorrent-console", line 17, in ?
from BitTorrent.platform import install_translation
ImportError: No module named BitTorrent.platform

I tried to reinstall it but i still get that message, what else can i do to fix this?

Thank you.

I'm not familiar with bittorrent at all, but here is what their FAQ sais about it (http://www.bittorrent.com/FAQ.html#m...dpythonversion):

Quote:
If you see an error like this after installing BitTorrent on a Linux or other unix system:

Trackback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/bittorrent", line 17, in ?
from BitTorrent.platform import install_translation
ImportError: No module named BitTorrent.platform.

This error indicates that you have installed BitTorrent for the wrong version of Python, or perhaps that you have multiple conflicting versions of BitTorrent installed.

Here's what to do:

-1. Check to see if the latest version of BitTorrent, 4.2, is available through your operating systems official software archives. If it is, install that version. If it is not, contact your operating system vendor and ask them why BitTorrent is not yet available.

-2. If BitTorrent is not available through official channels, you must install it yourself:
1. Uninstall *all* versions of BitTorrent using the software package management tools that came with your operating system.
2. Check the version of Python that you have installed by typing python -V in a shell.
3. Download the package for the latest version of BitTorrent that matches the version of Python that was printed in the previous step. Do not install the package for a different version of python other than the one printed in the previous step, that will not work. Seriously. We've tried it.
4. If BitTorrent is still broken, then follow the directions for building a RPM install, a .deb install, or a standard Python/unix install.
