Code:
btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 8 example-1.0.iso.torrent

Code:
[Nick@localhost ~]$ btdownloadcurses.py --max_upload_rate 8 The_sims_2.3331687.TPB.torrent
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/btdownloadcurses.py", line 25, in ?
    from BitTorrent.download import Feedback, Multitorrent
ImportError: No module named BitTorrent.download
thats what i get... ok lets say my torrent file is installed in /home/Nick/torrents
and the BT rpm is in /home/Nick/rpms... is that info needed?

it doesn't matter where your rpm is after you installed it...

as for the location of the .torrent file, the command you posted would work fine if that .torrent file is in the directory you are currently in...

as for the error you are getting, seems like it's a PATH issue, but i'm not sure... do a little googling and see what you come-up with:

there was an interesting post on another thread today, sounds like this guy was able to fix a very similar issue:

File "/usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py", line 17, in ?
from BitTorrent import locale_root
ImportError: No module named BitTorrent
/usr/bin>

I got past the problem by doing this
cd /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages
cp -a /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/BitTorrent
cp -a /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/khashmir

as Python on my box is v2.4 while bt supports v2.3.

ya i was a little caught up on this one..


then i tried something i should have tried from the start

yum -y install bittorrent

It wont install the btdownloadgui.py but it will install btdownloadcurses.py which is the terminal end client which is very nice..


hope it helps

if you get too frustrated with bit torrent i'd recommend giving azureus a try. just unpack the tar.gz and run the executable to start up azureus. in firefox (can't say much for other browsers from my own experience) you can set it up in the preference to have azureus start rigth up when you click on a bit torrent link)

I feel the same way. I'm still stuck on the Java install!!! I don't knwo how to change directories to where the file downloaded. Do you have to download everyting while logged on as root?

You need to download the Linux GTK package, extract it and just put the extracted directory wherever you want e.g. /usr/local and then create a link to the azureus executable on your desktop and just click on it to run azureus.

normally i put all my tar.gz/bz2 files in a directory called soruce then when i untar azureus i make a script to run it that looks like this:

#!/bin/sh

#change to azureus directory

cd /where/ever/azureus/directory/is

#run azureus
./azureus &

exit 0

then i make a symlink to the script so it is in the path(i have all my scripts in a dir called scripts) like this

ln -s /path/to/script /usr/local/bin/azureus

this may seem like a bit of work but you can't just make a symlink to the azureus executable. I've tried before but it needs files in it's directory to run that is why i made a shell script to change to that directory and run it so you don't always have to go thru the file system to get to the executable.

Ok, quick Question. Do I have to be logged in as root to move these files here? It was the only way I could do it.
I now have Azureus in the /usr/local/bin/azureus The files are extracted and whe I log back in as my normal user name they have a red circle with a line through it with a pencil in it. I'm guessing that means it is write protected?

yes you need to be root to put stuff in /usr/local/bin. can you start up azureus fine? you didn't need to put the untarred folder in /usr/local/bin just link to it (although i've had problems with just linking to it so that is why i made the script that changes to that directory then starts it up.

Should I move it to a different directory? Where should program files be installed?

It doesn't work yet. I'm still working on installing Java but I think I might have figured it out. I didn't know I had to be in root to install it..
