Just download the client http://bitconjurer.org/BitTorrent/BitTorrent-3.3.tar.gz or download a rpm version of it, then extract into a dir and start it with

Quote:

./btdownloadcurses
or if you want a other gui version start it with
Quote:

./btdownloadgui

[user@localhost user]$ /home/user/software/BitTorrent-3.3/btdownloadgui.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/user/software/BitTorrent-3.3/btdownloadgui.py", line 13, in ?
from wxPython.wx import *
ImportError: No module named wxPython.wx

with what do I replace wxPython.wx ? , also with the rpm it says that it needs something like BT 2.3

As a side note, or alternate options:

1. If you understand how to run wineX, you could emulate your favorite BT client. I emulate ABC client fairly regularly. (I'm on Mandrake 9.1 also.)
2. ML Donkey supports Bittorrent downloads. I'm not sure if you use emule but that could be a way to easily get BT and combine your emule usage into one program.

That's what I want to know... Python is cross-platform, there's no need to emulate anything...

By the way, you don't need the wxPython GUI. Just press Ctrl-Alt-F1, log in, and run "btdownloadcurses.py <torrentfilename>.torrent". Now it will run without cluttering your desktop :)
