installed a program with YaST, how do I run it?

A few days ago I decided I'd try bittorrent on my SuSE 9.1 Personal. When I went to install it with Yast it said I needed to install python first. So I did that and then installed BitTorrent successfully. Now I can't figure out how to run BitTorrent. I lokked around in the install folder but because they're all python files (.py) I don't know which one will execute the BitTorrent program.

Thanks for any help

it should be:


If you click on a torrent file does it open the bittorrent client for you?

You're right, if I click a torrent it should poen the client, but instead it just asks me to choose what program I want to use.
