Now that we all have Mldonkey thanx to kfurge's image... and that torrent downloading finaly works on our white brick :-) would any kind soul please give a few hints to us non-linux types? :-)
I downloaded torrent yesterday w/o any problems... speed was cool, ~ 300kb/s, I never got that with download master :-) but...
I had to install sancho in order to add the .torrent file to cue. The way I'm used to is to download .torrent files locally and then double-click them to download. OK, it's a bit more complex than that with linux, no problem. I know I must do something like dllink http://........../.../...torrent (even though it's grom GRAPHICAL interface, but what the hell). But...
1) I suppose it's not possible to specify file that is on my local (windows) hard drive???? What is, then, best practice? To just copy .torrent files onto router somewhere?
2) when finished downloading, how do I STOP sharing the downloaded file? I tried everything and nothing worked. In the end, I had to logon as root and delete both .torrent and the file, previously I stopped all protocols from sancho. Any straighforward way of doing this? I mean, for christ's sake, I'm just downloading a torrent here, it's not rocketscience!!!!
3) I'm unable to delete some leftovers from download master. I logon as root, and no matter what I do, the file is still there. DL master is DISABLED. I suspect it could be to the fact that the file name is starting with "-"... when I do rm * it just lists the options for rm as if I enetered wrong switch or something.
Now, I swear that I will never, ever swear Mr. Gates and Windows again, after this experience with Linux... :-)
