Bittorrent


I can't get bit torrent working in SuSE 9.1.

I have tried downloading code from the site (no compiling I beleive, because Python is an interpreted language) I followed all the instructions for dependancies and such even edited the mailcap file. No luck. . I also installed an RPM for SuSE 9.0 which did install a x-bittorrent app, but when I try and associate it with a torrent file I'm trying to open from the web ... nothing happens.

I checked the forums, and stumbled upon this thread:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=68696

It died nearly a month ago, hehe, but I'm encountering all the same problems. If anyone has any tip, or know a site which can help me get BT up and running I'd be much obliged.

None of your previous posts mentions azureus or bit-tornado directly, you just say source, which could refer to any of the 3 programs, or any other out of the thousands available.

Is it just not working straight from the browser? Have you tried just running btdownloadgui.py filename.torrent to see if it works?

Or else you could just open the client and then tell it to open the torrent file, that would be easier.

My apologies, I was not clear in saying which BT clients I've tried.

I have tried:

BitTornado
Azureus
bittorrent-3.4.2-0.gbv.1.noarch.rpm (just an RPM I found)

Problem with Azures is I couldn't find the SWT dependancies, or files that it required.

I just tried ./btdownloadgui.py *.torrent

I get the following error with the python code:

File "./btdownloadgui.py", line 23
sys.exit(1)

So still no workie. .

What is the exact error message you get from azureus and when does it occur?

I'm running Azureus on SuSe 9.1 with no problems. You might run into issues if your firewall is blocking ports that it needs to use. I'd recommend turning off your firewall temporarily through Control Center and trying it again. If it works after that, then you need to adjust your firewall settings.

When I dl'ed Azureus, I used APT to solve all of the dependencies for me. I'd recommend using it over YaST (as it really does a horrible job, mostly). Check out this site: http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/

I use BitTornado on Redhat 8.0 and SuSE. I only run on command mode and it works.
I just extract to my Home directory and run the command

./btdownloadheadless.py myfile.torrent

The cmd line mode works perfectly, does it support resuming? Pausing?
