    Hi,
    Many ppl here come to ask me about how to install rtorrent on their seedbox. And predateur, as I promised to you, here I create this tutorial hope could bless you all, I've managed to use this on CentOS, maybe could work also on Fedora.

    In this tutorial we'll install this package into the box :
    pkg-config
    openSSL
    nCurses
    libsigc++
    libCurl
    libTorrent and rTorrent
    screen or dtach

    That's all. Note that the whole process is relatively *very* long, depends on your seedbox processor.

    Before you can connect to your seedbox you need either putty if you're on Windows, and terminal if you're on unix based machine include Mac OS X. Since I'm on Mac OS X I just launch the terminal and connect to the server using this command :

    ssh xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -l login_name

    where : xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = your seedbox IP address
    login_name : usually as root

    Now you're connected to your server. Ready? Follow these step by step instructions.

    pkg-config

    Let’s start by pkg-config, as it is needed for other softwares to check whether a library is installed or not. The installation is trivial and shouldn’t cause any difficulties.

    # cd /tmp/
    # wget http://pkgconfig.freedesktop.org/rel...ig-0.22.tar.gz
    # tar -zxvf pkg-config-0.22.tar.gz
    # cd pkg-config-0.22
    # ./configure
    # make
    # make install

    openSSL

    # wget http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-0.9.8g.tar.gz
    # tar -zxvf openssl-0.9.8g.tar.gz
    # cd openssl-0.9.8g
    # ./Configure gcc
    # make
    # make install

    ncurses

    A programming API to build text interfaces…

    # wget http://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/ncurses/ncurses-5.6.tar.gz
    # tar -zxvf ncurses-5.6.tar.gz
    # cd ncurses-5.6
    # ./configure
    # make
    # make install

    libsigc++

    A C++ library…

    # wget http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sourc...-2.0.17.tar.gz
    # tar -zxvf libsigc++-2.0.17.tar.gz
    # cd libsigc++-2.0.17
    # ./configure
    # make
    # make install

    libCurl

    Library that provides URL transferts.

    # wget http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.16.4.tar.gz
    # tar -zxvf curl-7.16.4.tar.gz
    # cd curl-7.16.4
    # ./configure
    # make
    # make install

    if by some reason you can't connect to curl.haxx.se, just google for the files or go here and find the files : http://files.directadmin.com/services/customapache/

    libTorrent

    libTorrent is rTorrent’s engine.

    do this first

    export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/ssl/lib/pkgconfig/

    Then grab libTorrent and compile it:

    # wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downlo...-0.11.9.tar.gz
    # tar -zxvf libtorrent-0.11.9.tar.gz
    # cd libtorrent-0.11.9
    # ./configure
    # make
    # make install

    rTorrent

    Almost there.

    # wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downlo...t-0.7.9.tar.gz
    # tar -zxvf rtorrent-0.7.9.tar.gz
    # cd rtorrent-0.7.9
    # ./configure
    # make
    # make install


    Now you can try to launch rtorrent. Type rtorrent.

    dtach / screen

    One thing a bit stupid now is that you can use rTorrent, but it terminates as soon as you close you terminal. Sure you can run it in the background in using rtorrent &, but then you can’t see the GUI anymore. The solution is a terminal multiplexer, which allows you to access multiple terminal sessions. That’s pretty good: you can start rTorrent from one computer with either dtach or screen, leave the session, and then get your window from another computer. Exactly what we need.

    screen is better than dtach, but it's up to you.

    if you want to install dtach, do this :

    # wget http://jaist.dl.sourceforge.net/sour...ach-0.7.tar.gz
    # ./configure
    # make
    # cp /tmp/dtach-0.7/dtach /bin/

    Then you will use dtach and rtorrent this way:

    dtach -c /tmp/socket-rtorrent rtorrent

    to leave the session just hit Ctrl+\
    to go back to your session type
    dtach -A /tmp/socket-rtorrent rtorrent

    if you want to install screen do this :

    #yum install screen

    after it's done, to start rtorrent type :
    screen rtorrent

    to leave the session hit Ctrl+a then press d
    to go back to your session just type
    screen -r


    Sometimes you have a tracker that has no passkey, this often have to login from the location you want to leech/seed. If you use linux you probably have question about this, don't worry, it's easy, all you need to do is create a dynamic tunnel over SSH to your server. Once created, the dynamic tunnel would act as a SOCKS5 proxy allowing you to browse the web using your servers IP, many thanks to Fibre, if you're a Windows user you could follow his quick tutorial here : https://filesharingtalk.com/vb3/p-hos...84/postcount17
    If you're on Mac or Unix system, connect to your server using this additional option in command line :
    ssh xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -l login_name -D yyyyy
    yyyyy : the port number you desire
    the rest is the same as above

    and from your browser, point the SOCKS Proxy to 127.0.0.1 with the same port number as you set in the ssh command the don't forget to bypass or set no proxy to localhost and 127.0.0.1

    Wow, that's a very amazing tutorial

    Maybe I'll get a seedbox just because of that, hehe.

    Hello,

    Well i am totally new to this scene and want to thank you for this great tutorial.

    I have a linux vps (centos-5-i386-afull). But when i try to do ./configure for any package that I need to install i get:

    Code:
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking for gawk... gawk
    checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
    checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
    checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
    checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnuoldld
    checking for style of include used by make... GNU
    checking for gcc... no
    checking for cc... no
    checking for cl.exe... no
    configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
    See `config.log' for more details.
    I tried doing

    yum install gcc
    yum install gcc-c++
    yum -y update
    yum install kernel-devel

    and various other things. But my problem isn't solved yet still getting no acceptable compiler in $PATH bla bla

    forgive me if this is newb question but as i said, i can say I started getting into this tonight.

    any help appreciated, thanks.
