The Great Rtorrent


Compile libtorrent first,

  1. Downloading the source code from github

  2. Install tools and dependency. Maybe Incorrectly reports “No package ‘libcrypto’ found” when it is in fact looking for ‘libssl-dev’.

sudo apt-get install aclocal automake libtool pkg-config # compile tools

sudo apt-get install libcppunit-dev libssl-dev # dependency
  1. ./ && ./configure && make && sudo make install

And then intall rtorrent,

  1. Source code is here

  2. Dependency: libcurl4-openssl-dev

  3. ./ && ./configure && make && sudo make install

  4. cp doc/rtorrent.rc ~/.rtorrent.rc
