Question how can i get bittorrent to work in slackware 10.1?


hello everyone, this is a thread to ask how i can get bittorrent working in slack. i just managed my mouse scroll wheel to work so i feel like i did something good. if n e one needs that just ask and i'll post. n e way. bittorrent is the issue at hand. i already untarred it and have it disposable but when i read the unix readme it tells me to add a line in the location of certain files. i beleive it is "/etc/mailcap" i am unable to find this in vim -g. i dont know if that is the way to go about it. the browser i use is firefox and it mentions something about azureous i think. do i need that Auzrous to run bittorrent in linux or can i continue to run it with firefox. also there is a way to run from command line i have no problem with at all. if i can get that working it will take care of the problem at hand and i can wait for anothe rday to resolve teh gui running. but either would be appreciated. i have done some research on how to. went to the home site for BT and there in the FAQ is a way but it is the same as the README file for the unix installation. does slack have /etc/mailcap? i cant find it through vim -g. if anyone can help with a step by step being that i am a little inlleterate in the matter i would greatly appreciate it. thank you for your time.

I tried using the original Bittorrent program in my PC but had no luck. So I turned to Azureus (I think that's what you are talking about when you say "Auzrous"). In any case, Azureus would be the only thing you need to get your torrent downloads going. Instructions on how to install the program are here:
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/howto_linux.php.
If you have used the original Bittorrent client, I think you will find that Azureus is a lot better.

Okay, the error means you didn't install the java JRE, so do this:
Go to http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/download.jsp.
Click on "Download JRE 5.0 Update 2"
(Note that it's JRE not JDK).
Click on the "Accept" radio button, then on "Continue".
Click on "Linux self-extracting file" to start the download.
(Note: don't download the RPM).
Once the file is downloaded, go into a terminal, 'cd' to where the file is, and do
chmod +x jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586.bin
to make the downloaded file executable.
Type 'su' then enter your root password, then type ./jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586.bin to install JRE.

Azureus should work now.

Choose your closest mirror, find slackware-10.1, cd
into the extra directory, cd into the bittorrent directory,
download the file.

If you happened to BUY slack it's on CD3 in /extra



Cheers,
Tink

To make a file (ie "file.bin") executable you have to type
chmod +x file.bin

No, the error means that azureus is jumping to
conclusions about where java is supposed to
live ...

If you do a full install of slack Java is already
installed, just not in /usr/java but in /usr/lib/java

Tink

Ignore the rpm, you most likely already have Java installed.
It certainly comes with the installation CDs.

Just add a file called java.sh to /etc/profile.d/, make it executable
and have it look something like:
Code:
#!/bin/sh
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/java
export MANPATH="$MANPATH:/usr/lib/java/man"
export PATH="$PATH:/usr/lib/java/bin:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin"

Cheers,
Tink

Is Slackware's java installed?

Code:
ls -l /var/log/packages/j*
If it's not, just install it ... the version that comes
with the latest slack will actually put the j2sdk.sh in
/etc/profile.d for you ...

It's on your first slack-CD:
/slackware/d/j2sdk-1_4_2_04-i586-3.tgz

That should enable azureus to see java.


Cheers,
Tink

That means that java is not installed ... did you use
a newbie install and skip development tools?

Just install java now ;)

Insert CD1
mount /path/to/cdrom
installpkg /path/to/cdrom/slackware/d/jd*tgz


Cheers,
Tink
