Bittorrent Clients
« on: July 10, 2008, 01:08:46 pm »

I have been unable to find any Bittorrent clients in the 5.9 version Deluxe. I've tried slapt-get with no success. Can anyone please suggest a client that will fit in ?
Thanks  :)

Try out transmission-1.21-i586-1vl59. I love it. Don't bother installing one of our earlier versions. They just worked poorly (not our fault). You need to enable your testing repo to find it.  You'll find about half of our repo is over there  :P

Many thanks,  I've successfully downloaded Transmission and will give it a go.  ;D

Opera web browser has a bit torrent client function in it.
There should be some more clients on the repository, make sure you have appropriate repository sections turned on, then update slapt-get.

I know azureus is in there somewhere too, I started out on a package of "plane" bit-torrent, not sure if anyone took over on that package and moved it up from the 5.8 to 5.9.

 Anyways, opening some of the repository and update slapt-get should do it.
