bittorrent in fedora core 4

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to get myself a working bittorrent client on fedora core 4 for about 12 straight hours ive tried emulation with wine but i cant get anything to connect to trackers. I was able to successfully emulate utorrent with wine but its very unstable ive tried installing gnome torrent, azurus, and the original bittorrent nothing they wont even run ive checked the versions against my core and they match up I'm totally lost and i dont wanna go back to windows I've already gone threw the trouble of installing ntfs access for 3 hard drives my kernel version is kernel-module-fglrx-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 on an x86_64. Any help would be great

You could install a Linux client.. rather than emulate? Even the basic BitTorrent scripts can be enough?

Hi,

 

type the following as root:

 

yum install bittorrent

 

Thats it bittorrent is installed. :D if you want GUI for it type:

 

yum install bittorrent-gui

i must be doing something wrong the client is installed but wont connect to any trackers at least i got one installed one step at a time i suppose

 

Have you opened and forwarded ports? Normally the range is 50000-60000 but you will need to check with your choosen client.
