You may have only installed the core and not the gui.

Make sure that your URPMI sources are set up and look for bittorrent (descriptions) in rpmdrake.

There are a slew of clients and gui's available with one click.

Alternatively if you are sure that you've installed both the core and the gui press Alt+F2 type kappfinder, click scan and et voila.

or you can just type in
alt-f2
and type in bittorent (or the name of the program, as you typed it into urpmi)
that will run the program

I managed to install bittorent by following the directions but when I try to open .torrent files with it I get a 'Session 'Shell' exited with signal 1'..
I really have no idea what is this suppose to mean.
Can someone help?

http://bittorrent.com/
Download the BitTorrent Source code (tar.gz file)
Extract it to a directory, like /home/yourname/BitTorrent-3.4.2
cd BitTorrent-3.4.2
chmod +x btdownloadheadless.py
./btdownloadheadless.py filename.torrent

That's all there is to it and the BitTorrent starts downloading

Have you checked out Azureus? It is a GUI-based bittorrent client written in Java, is completely self-contained and it works very, very well.

what do you mean when you say "cd Bittorent-3.4.2 chmod +x bitdownload..........."
is that supposed to be typed in the command prompt? because i tried to open the client by clicking on the file and i got a c++ looking text

Yes, the BitTorrent I am talking about is command line based, NOT GUI based. That's why when you clicked on it, you got program code.
