Because you said:

Which SAYS that you are looking for something LIKE rtorrent, even though you are currently trying to get rtorrent to work. People are replying and trying to give you alternatives because YOU ASKED FOR THEM.

i would like to run a minimal torrent client, something like rtorrent (a)
in fact, i WANT to install its GUI - ruTorrent (b)

a) libtorrent.rakshasa.no

b) code.google.com/p/rutorrent

is it possible with Slackware?
are there any guides, slackbuilds and/or threads about it?

You pissed off everyone who spent time to give helpful hints and alternatives to your question and then when everyone stops responding you think it's alright to just copy-paste your initial post?
Wake up buddy.

./rtorrent.SlackBuild: line 70: --with-xmlrpc=/usr/bin/xmlrpc-c-config: No such file or directory

When you add

Code:
--with-xmlrpc=/usr/bin/xmlrpc-c-config
to rtorrent.Slackbuild did you add a \ on the line before?

I have one machine with Debian that runs rtorrent + rutorrent for a long time.
But I want to put Slackware on that machine also.
I'm testing rutorrent on Slackware on two other machines. The first one was only for curiosity/learning and the other is the real test.
In the process I wrote my steps.
I don't know if this is right or if is stable. I'm testing it.

But this my small how-to

Quote:
1. XML-RPC installation

$ sbopkg -i xmlrpc-c

And

$ command -v xmlrpc-c-config

The result it will be something like

/usr/bin/xmlrpc-c-config


2. Edit rtorrent.SlackBuild

Add the previous result to the .Slackbuild file like this

...

./configure \
--prefix=/usr \
--libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--localstatedir=/var \
--mandir=/usr/man \
--build=$ARCH-slackware-linux \
--with-xmlrpc-c=/usr/bin/xmlrpc-c-config

make

...

Run it! And install it.



3. Edit .rtorrent.rc

# To use rtorrent with some web GUI's such as rutorrent or wtorrent
#
scgi_port = 127.0.0.1:5000



4. Edit /etc/httpd/httpd.conf and add at the end

ProxyPass /RPC2 scgi://127.0.0.1:5000

And make a few changes to support php and vhosts.


5. Edit /etc/httpd/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

# main server
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName server
DocumentRoot /srv/httpd/htdocs
</VirtualHost>

<VirtualHost *:80>
#ServerName www.example.com
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot "/var/www/htdocs/rutorrent"
<Directory "/var/www/htdocs/rutorrent">
AllowOverride AuthConfig
Require all granted
</Directory>
</VirtualHost>



6. Install rutorrent

Unzip zip file to /var/www/htdocs/rutorrent/

Create /var/www/htdocs/rutorrent/.htaccess

AuthType Basic
AuthGroupFile /dev/null
AuthName "Restricted Access"
AuthUserFile /home/user/html/rutorrent/.htpasswd
Require user your_user


Run htpasswd -c /home/user/html/rutorrent/.htpasswd your_user


chown -R apache:apache /var/www/htdocs/rutorrent/

This is a try and error method.
And I'm testing it.
