HOWTO - Azureus BitTorrent Client on Fedora Core 3

April 14th, 2005

 

First you will need to download the two latest versions of Java and Azureus.

 

At the time of this HOWTO I found links to both downloads from the following link.

http://azureus.sourceforge.net/download.php

 

To go directly to the Java download use this link.

http://jdl.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=9987

(Latest version at time of HOWTO - jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586)

 

To go directly to the Azureus download use this link.

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/azureus...ar.bz2?download

(Latest Azureus version at time of HOWTO - Azureus_2.2.0.3_linux.GTK)

 

Once you have both downloaded

 

- Go to a terminal and Type: su

- Enter your root password.

- Copy the file to the directory in which you want to install. Type: cp jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin /usr/local

- Change to the directory in which you want to install. Type: cd /usr/local

- Give the file execute permissions Type: chmod a+x jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin

- Start the installation process. Type: ./jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586-rpm.bin

- Enter yes to proceed with the installation after reading license agreement.

- The installation file creates jre-1_5_0-linux-i586.rpm file in the current directory.

- Type: rpm -iv jre-1_5_0_02-linux-i586.rpm

- The Java installation is now complete.

- Change to the directory in which you saved the Azureus download

- bunzip2 Azureus_2.2.0.2_linux.GTK.tar.bz2

- tar xvf Azureus_2.2.0.2_linux.GTK.tar

- mv azureus ~/

- The Azureus installation is now complete. The start Azureus just run ./azureus from the ~/azureus directory.

 

I wrote this HOWTO as I was installing Azureus tonight. I hope that it is not too confusing.

 

Thanks,

MECHTN

maybe move into /usr/local/bin for continuity.. also that will allow it to be in your path and executed by just typing "azureus".
