Mandrake 10 comes with bittorrent.

If you're using the standard 3 cd community edition the rpm's are on cd3....

put cd3 in your cd drive....

su -
mount /mnt/cdrom
cd /mnt/cdrom/Mandrake/RPMS3
ls bittor*
cp bittorrent-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm /root/
cp bittorrent-gui-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm /root/
cd /root
rpm -Uhv bittorrent-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uhv bittorrent-gui-3.3-4mdk.noarch.rpm
the version numbers in the files "may" be different. Probably not though but check to make sure.

bittorent is now installed......have fun.


p.s.-you can also run Azureus on linux since it runs on java...thats a little more involved and the info is here --> I personally prefer azureus but as a newbie it might be better to stick with Brams original client.
