Re: [Request] a Bittorent Client

There is torrent/ctorrent already.  It is easy to use on the command line, open a terminal and 'ctorrent a_torrent_file.torrent'.  Many options, just enter ctorrent to see.

You can get azureus and install it in your home dir.  It works nicely.  It will not be in pacman since it has an on-by-default auto check/update feature that only works if you install it as the user.  It needs java.

Re: [Request] a Bittorent Client

There's also the "official" client.  "pacman -S bittorrent"

Then you have several versions depending on what you want.

btdownloadheadless.py
btdownloadcurses.py
btdownloadgui.py

I have one in my personal ABS dir, but this happens when I run it

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/gnome-btdownload", line 4, in ?
    import BitTorrent.download, BitTorrent.bencode
ImportError: No module named BitTorrent.download

So I take it I'l have to tinker with the build some more, but just for fun here's the PKGBUILD file:

# Maintainer: David Nielsen <dnielsen@breakmygentoo.net>

pkgname=gnome-btdownload
pkgver=0.0.16
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="GNOME frontend for Bittorrent"
url="http://gnome-bt.sourceforge.net"
depends=('pygtk' 'gnome-python' 'bittorrent')
makedepends=('pkgconfig' 'pacman>=2.7.3')
source=(http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/gnome-bt/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.bz2)
md5sums=('7cfedd0a2eada815ec42851d8a255a9b')

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/usr
  make || return 1
  make prefix=$startdir/pkg/usr install
}

Re: [Request] a Bittorent Client

it cannot find bittorrent class:

[damir@Asteraceae /]$ locate download.py
/opt/bittorrent/BitTorrent/download.py

it's under /opt and i assume that /opt/bittorrent is not in the classpath of python in arch - only guessing

yeah I figured it had something to do with Arch's insane filesystem layout.

Re: [Request] a Bittorent Client

Someone made a pkgbuild for azureus, in case you want to try.
