Contents of README:
Here's a BitTorrent package for Slackware. Note that we don't ship either wxGTK or wxPython, which are needed for the btdownloadgui.py script. I built and installed these, and couldn't justify the huge size (and assorted build problems) in order to enable an ugly little dialog box. But feel free to grab those sources and knock yourself out! I've included a simple script and mailcap entry to allow using the curses based downloader instead, which will work just the same as the GUI version but with a lot less library overhead required. For Mozilla, Netscape, and other browsers that read /etc/mailcap, once you've installed this package BitTorrent should work right out of the box. If your browser doesn't use /etc/mailcap, you can set it up to use /usr/bin/btdownloadxterm.sh as the helper application for the MIME type application/x-bittorrent. If you're a command-line user, you may also consider using btdownloadcurses.py manually. Here's how: 1. Download the .torrent file into your download directory. 2. At the command line, use the curses version of BitTorrent to download: btdownloadcurses.py some-big-file.torrent This should start the download and bring up a status screen where you can monitor the download (and upload) progress. Have fun! - P.
