Need help with utorrent on linux server

Hi, I'm new to the forums and to linux so I wasn't sure where to ask this, but here goes.

I have Fedora 8 OS. Installed fluxbox and a user to access vnc other than root. Use xterm to download utorrent. Use wine to open utorrent and run it. Set up uTorrent webui a month ago and everything was working great. Two days ago the buttons in my webui went missing and the genius that I was, typed in reboot on root. Big mistake because I can't even open uTorrent webui anymore.
Now I'm getting these errors in the xterm window that I use to open uTorrent through wine. I'm not sure if these errors are related to the uTorrent webui business but here they are.

WARNING: Trying to create a socket of type SOCK_RAW, this will fail unless you have special permissions.
I also get a lot of these errors:

err:iphlpapi:getNumWithOneHeader Unable to open '/proc/net/route' to count entries!
err:iphlpapi:getRouteTable unimplemented!
If anybody can help me out, that would be killer. Thanks

Better off asking the Wine lot really. It seems silly to use a Linux box to run a Windows app and access it via web. Personally I'd grab a Linux web-admin torrent system (they are out there a plenty!).

As for your error, what happens if you try and run it direct on the box and not through vnc? Does it start?

No it doesn't work.
And thanks for your reply, I will post it over on the wine boards.
If it doesn't work I might try rtorrent.


fedora, linux, utorrent
