    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
    cd /usr/local/src
    wget http://libtorrent.rakshasa.no/downloads/rtorrent
    tar -zxvf rtorrent-0.7.9.tar.gz
    cd rtorrent
    ./configure -prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin
    make
    make install

    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.

    What did you mean by "don't work"?
    Is the make command missing?
    If it's the case, just try "apt-get install make".

    If you want, you can look at this tutorial: http://shinra.ovh.org/viewtopic.php?id=2
    That's a guide I'm working on. the part named "4) Set up wTorrent" is not finished. But it will help you to compile and install rTorrent at least.

    Bah I suck at this. Now I have installed some of these packages a couple of times (so they just don't get upgraded, but now I cannot find anything. Like, I used your guide to install a bunch of packages, but where did they go? I guess I just don't get linux.

    Here is a good guide to installing rtorrnt+wtorrent on debian etch.

    Im no linux expert but have you tried (as su)
    apt-get install rtorrent
    ?

    Edit: Just tried and it worked for me. Installed rtorrent and libtorrent9

    Of course, I tried apt-get for a while but that didn't work without having the supporting programs installed. I redid that but that just now to try again, which got me v. 6.4. So I need to find a better repository, which I can't remember where that was (I wish Google would turn up the old tutorial that got me through it all the first time around).
    I'm sorry for posting such a dumb thread I'll just keep bashing my head against a wall to figure this out when I'm not in my office... enjoy the noobness.

    Edit: Seems to be working better now...found my original package of rtorrent and libtorrent and am using that now...make works or seems to. Thanks

    deb http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
    deb-src http://security.debian.org/ etch/updates main contrib
    
    deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian etch main non-free
    Code:
    apt-get install rtorrent
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree... Done
    The following extra packages will be installed:
      libtorrent9
    The following NEW packages will be installed:
      libtorrent9 rtorrent

    OK, got most everything setup, just having issues getting xmlrpc installed. Can't find the directory where that installs...found that, just won't configure. SHit I suck.

    Why won't rtorrent start without it? :/

    Edit: I think I got that. I'm learning quite a bit.


    Well, I am stuck again with the xmlrpc. Make has error, maybe I found the wrong version :/

    Try this:

    Code:
    cd
    
    svn co https://xmlrpc-c.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xmlrpc-c/advanced xmlrpc-c
     
    cd xmlrpc-c/
     
    ./configure --disable-cplusplus
     
    make
     
    make install

    When you configured rtorrent did you add the --with-xmlrpc-c?
