Summary: BitTorrent Client using libtorrent
- Uses app-misc/screen to daemonize this application
this page is untested, and a work in progress.
Rtorrent is a command line bittorrent client.
if you intend to use rtorrent with Package: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
The $USER should be changed to the torrent user you wish to download as.
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.
scgi_port = localhost:5000
