[SOLVED] - Is rTorrent 0.8.6 possible on B2

Post by matkr265 » 14 Oct 2010, 17:46

Hello Bubba community

Has anyone got rTorrent 0.8.6 to run on their bubba?

My private BT tracker requires rTorrent 0.8.6, that is not avaliable via apt-get. I found a great guide that nb000 wrote but I can not get it to work, it seems to want to downgrade my system instead of upgrading it.

HowTo for 7.9.2:

New steps for 0.8.6

My error when I followed the HowTo:

Sorry about starting a new thread but this is very important to me, I wrote a rss-downloader php-scrip [ probably not better than any other but it was fun :D ] that i crontabbed and I would really like to continue to use it along with my bubba so any pointers on how to get the most recent rTorrent onto B2 are greatly appreciated.

regards

I managed to get rTorrent 0.8.6 running!

1) I removed my rTorrent 0.7.9 that I installed via apt-get

Code: Select all

su
apt-get remove rtorrent
2) Automagically install neccessary libs

Code: Select all

su
apt-get install libncurses5-dev libsigc++-2.0-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev build-essential
exit
3) Download, unpack, configure, build and install libTorrent

Code: Select all

wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downloads/libtorrent-0.12.6.tar.gz
tar xvf libtorrent-0.12.6.tar.gz
cd libtorrent-0.12.6
./configure
make
su
make install
4) Download, unpack, configure, build and install rTorrent

Code: Select all

wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downloads/rtorrent-0.8.6.tar.gz
tar xvf rtorrent-0.8.6.tar.gz
cd rtorrent-0.8.6 
./configure
make
su
make install
5) In addition to this I also edited /etc/ld.so.conf

Code: Select all

su
nano /etc/ld.so.conf
to look like this
include /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf
/usr/local/lib
and ran the following command a few times, I do not know when it was neccessary and when not but I think I did it between step 2, 3 and 4.

Code: Select all

su
ldconfig
The information that helped me thru this was a swedish guide in addition to nb000's tutorial-post
