Warning

this page is untested, and a work in progress.

Rtorrent is a command line bittorrent client.

Installation

if you intend to use rtorrent with Rutorrent or another front end make sure you emerge with the xmlrpc flag. (for now we'll also throw in the daemon until proven its not needed. the daemon is strange as its implemented in screen? its probably so you can attach/detach anywhere infinite times.)

# echo "net-p2p/rtorrent xmlrpc daemon" >> /etc/portage/package.use #xmlrpc use flag for web interface.
# emerge rtorrent


Configuration

The $USER should be changed to the torrent user you wish to download as.

/etc/conf.d/rtorrentd - select user
USER="$USER"

Example

logged in as the torrent user:

# cd
# wget https://gist.githubusercontent.com/bryanjswift/1525912/raw/34fe28d70709e6b12840bcede3b82e5ed2abccce/.rtorrent.rc

~/.rtorrent.rc is now an example & running config.

xml rpc

~/.rtorrentrc - turn on xml rpc
scgi_port = localhost:5000
