Bittorrent / tornado install problems


Recommended Posts

Hi I get some wacky errors everytime I try to run bittorrent or bittornado. I have installed and uninstalled them a few times, I have installed and uninstalled Python and wxpython through urpmi as well.


I keep get wxpython errors...


*Using BitTornado*


[root@localhost hanes]# btdownloadgui.py MAME.ROMS.torrent

wxPython is either not installed or has not been installed properly.

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "/usr/bin/btdownloadgui.py", line 23, in ?


NameError: name 'sys' is not defined

import _core_

ImportError: /usr/lib/wxPython/lib/libwx_gtk2u_core-2.5.so.2: undefined symbol: gdk_display_get_default_cursor_size




Anyone know how to fix this?


Thanks in advance

Install azureus :)



I think I had a similar problem with an older version of bittorrent.

Find a recent mdk specific rpm and use it using urpmi, if it needs to update python in the process it should tell you.

Or at least make sure your copy of python is up to date.


Azureus is nice, but you can't start/monitor it remotely like you can with the command line utility (combine it with "screen").


The full mame ROM set is a biggy, at least the first time you get it :P
