Ctorrent-dnh_3.2_dingetje

Announcements of packages that are now released.

Postby dingetje » Wed Aug 22, 2007 5:21 pm

Based on <a href='http://www.rahul.net/dholmes/ctorrent/' target='_blank'>http://www.rahul.net/dholmes/ctorrent/</a> and as requested here on the forum I've made a package for a simple command line torrent client.

Testing has been minimal and I've also not tested the client on a bare FREESCO 03x machine (that is, one that hasn't been updated with the full blown libc.so.5 library).
A test torrent download seemed to work though, so not all bad ;)

Code: Select all
pkg -i http://dingetje.homeip.net/packages/0.3.x/ctorrent-dnh_3.2_dingetje


The UserGuide is included in the package (use the package 'man' pages), but can also be found online on its home page (see URL above). Also ctorrent -h gives short usage info. The client can be pushed into 'daemon' mode (background process) using the operator menu, but I haven't tried that mode. In interactive mode it seemed to work well.

A word of warning!
This client supports files > 2Gb, but FREESCO's file system may not!
I have not tried downloading files > 2Gb, so I really can't tell you if it works or not.


Enjoy!

Absolutely a warning because FREESCO does NOT support files sizes that large. That is actually a limitation of libc.so.5, so even 038 will not support >2Gb files with the new kernel. :(
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

Hi,

I tested this and it works out of the box.
You can have several downloads at the same time and make them deamon with the -d option.

I download the .torrent file from the www and put it on my freesco box with winSCP.
Then I enter in commandline " ctorrent -d *.torrent" and the file is downloaded to the point your cursor is.
After downloading the ctorrent process will stop.

Good job and thanks,
Marc

I made this code prob could be done better

Code: Select all
#Where the torrent will be downloaded
cd /boot/extra/download

# Make a new folder for the files
mkdir $1

# Check so that the folder and the torrent files is correct
echo -n "Folder   $1                            "
= $?
echo -n "Torrent  $2                    "
= $?
# Where I saved the torrent file
cd /boot/extra/torrent

# Where should the files be saved  Port 1313   What file should be downloaded
ctorrent -s /boot/extra/download/$1 -p 1313 $2
