I don't find BitTorrent after installation


Hi everyone. I have installed python and BitTorrent to start using the torrent for downloads. Now, i downloaded a rpm for my distro (FC3) and installed it. But um, huh, i searched all the BitTorrent.com website looking for a way to load the program and it doesn't say. I then started looking for directories that had something to do with it, started typing like possible names for it to run under, to no avail.

Can somebody explain to me how to run this? The tutorial is not done right at all, tell's you how to get things done but doesnt' tell how to run it in the first place. Go figure!!!

Thanks in advanced for all the help.

For the SuSE package at least:
Code:
schiwal@hpamd64:~> rpm -q --filesbypkg BitTorrent | grep 'bin/'
BitTorrent                /usr/bin/btdownloadheadless
BitTorrent                /usr/bin/btlaunchmany
BitTorrent                /usr/bin/btmaketorrent
BitTorrent                /usr/bin/btreannounce
BitTorrent                /usr/bin/btrename
BitTorrent                /usr/bin/btshowmetainfo
BitTorrent                /usr/bin/bttrack
I also installed KDE's ktorrent package.

also look at:
Code:
rpm -q -l BitTorrent | grep doc
/usr/share/doc/packages/BitTorrent
/usr/share/doc/packages/BitTorrent/LICENSE.txt
/usr/share/doc/packages/BitTorrent/README.txt
/usr/share/doc/packages/BitTorrent/credits.txt
/usr/share/doc/packages/BitTorrent/redirdonate.html

How/from where did you install it. Many places, like Fedora Extras, have two packages: "bittorrent" for the text programs and stuff, and "bittorrent-gui" for the GUIs.
