Installing Bittorrent (Along with Python/wxPython)


This has been driving me nuts for hours now. I'm trying to ultimately get Bittorrent(BitTorrent-3.2.1b.tar.gz) to work. I've tried installing python2.2(Python-2.2.3.tgz) and wxPython(xPythonGTK-py2.3-2.4.1.2-1.src.tgz) via the ./configre, make, make install method. But I'm getting nowhere, once I do all the ./configure,make,make install and try to run btdownloadgui.py I get

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py", line 15, in ?
from wxPython.wx import *
ImportError: No module named wxPython.wx

I'm totally lost, any help would be appreciated.

I've had the same problem. I'm guessing that there is still some package I am missing, but I can't figure out what.

I had the same problem just last night!!!!

This is how I resolved the issue:

1 - Get a RPM package;
2 - use "rpm2tgz" to convert *.rpm to *.tgz;
3 - use "installpkg" to install the *.tgz package;

And then something stranged happened I noticed that "btdownloadgui.py" weren't in /usr/bin/ where the other files where installed....so...I got the tarball with the source, unpacked and put "btdownloadgui.py" in /usr/bin!!!!!

That worked for me!!!!

I just tried using installpkg and all that happens is

Installing package python2-2.2.3-1.src...
PACKAGE DESCRIPTION:

then right back to the prompt in a matter of seconds. I don't think it's really doing anything. after I installed all 3 packages I tried to run btdownloadgui.py and it didn't work. Same error. This really has me confused.

If all went well the packages should be installed!!!!

To be sure run "pkgtool" and select the "View" option, now just search for the packages you installed!!!!

Now you just need to get yourself the hands on a "*.torrent" file and open it with "btdownloadgui.py", that sould be in /usr/bin!!!

Post if it worked!!!!

im a serious newbie to linux and trying to get bittorrent to go...
so i downloaded python-2.2.3-26.i386.rpm for RH 7.3. When i type rpm -i python-2.2.3-26.i386.rpm at the command line under root, I get this msg:

error: failed dependencies:
libc.so.6(GLIBC_2.3) is needed by python-2.2.3-26
libcrypto.so.4 is needed by python-2.2.3-26
libdb-4.0.so is needed by python-2.2.3-26
libpthread.so.0(GLIBC_2.3.2) is needed by python-2.2.3-26
libssl.so.4 is needed by python-2.2.3-26

How do I fix this and then how do I continue on with bittorrent?
Thanks a lot

Thumbs up Works for me!

Grab the bittorrent source tarball. Untar it and read the UnixREADME. In it, you will see that it instructs you to download and install wxPython.

Go to the wxPython site mentioned in the UnixREADME
and download the source tarball. Untar, then follow the instructions outlined in README.1st.

Here's the catch, you have to follow the instructions outlined in README.1st for compiling wxPython TO THE LETTER! You cannot merely do the usual ./configure;make;make install. That will not work! It's a long process of config options and the like, but if you follow the simple directions carefully, you will have a clean install of wxPython.

Once you've gotten through that part, all you need to do is go back to your Bittorrent folder and run btdownloadgui.py from command line, or establish it in your Mozilla helper apps preferences.
