As far as I know Bit torrent is not on apt-get. Could you give me a rough guide on where to get it from and how to install it. Also have any of you used Apollon? I have a complete distro of it with an install script but I get errors even if im in superuser mode.

To use bittorrent, I recommend the TheSHAD0W's EXPERIMENTAL BITTORRENT CLIENT ... download the latest source in tar.gz format.

Make sure you have python installed .... use the command :

python -V

The result will be something like this:

Python 2.2.3

If you don't have python, install via apt-get:

apt-get install python

Go to this page, scroll down to the Linux/UNIX section and click the link to download the RPM version of wxPython for your python install (in my case, I have version 2.2.3, so I would click version 2.2)

Install wxPython via the command:

rpm -Uvh wxPythonGTK-py2.2-

Now untar the client file:

tar -xvzf BitTorrent-experimental-S-5.8.10.tar.gz

move the entire directory to /usr/lib with this command:

mv bittorrent-CVS-shadowsclient/ /usr/lib/btclient

edit the file /etc/mailcap and add this line and save the file:

application/x-bittorrent; /usr/lib/btclient/ %s; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

If you want to be able to execute bittorrent commands from the command line, issue these commands:

cd /usr/bin
ln -s /usr/lib/btclient/bt*.py .

If you have a firewall, you want to open ports 6881 to 6889 into your new bittorrent client. (Or on your first download, you can go to the prefs tab and change the incoming port(s), and forward those ports to your client).
