I've done this once before several months ago, but it took hours and hours. I know a bit more about linux since going through that first experience, but I can't seem to get my new Leaseweb server set up properly. I followed a tutorial and searched around several sites, but honestly I'm so frustrated with the whole thing that I have decided to seek help.
I'm trying to install rTorrent in Debian 4.0 (stable). I used this formula to install libsigc, libcurl, libtorrent, and rtorrent
tar -zxvf rtorrent-0.7.9.tar.gz
./configure -prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin
Make and make install don't work (I tried them alone and with rtorrent-0.7.9 added on) but all the rest seemed to do fine, except rtorrent comes back, no ncurses library! So I guess these things aren't compiled properly.
So, if anyone can help me out here or is willing to get their hands dirty and be trusted with root access to help me set this up, I'd really appreciate it and would repay you in whatever way I can. Maybe some time on the box or an invite to a rare site or pics of my exgirlfriend or some money via paypal, whatever you want.
Basically all that needs to be done is just compiling rtorrent from the tar.gz I have already, an sftp server and if possible wtorrent would be a big plus. But even just installing rtorrent would be huge. I'd love to get it set up today so please help me out.
