#745 closed enhancement (fixed)

There is no BitTorrent client available

Reported by: isilanes Owned by: Heinervdm
Priority: minor Milestone: wishlist
Component: Package requests Version: SHR-unstable
Keywords: bittorrent p2p Cc:


A device running SHR is a full-fledged Linux system, generally boasting Internet connection. It would be desirable that such a system be able to connect to p2p networks. BitTorrent? clients such as Transmission or Deluge would be quite useful.

While this would work (if you connect a large USB disk eg), I am not really willing to maintain an app that would probably be used by one guy.

If you find a working recipe file from OE, I would reconsider, but given the small manpower we have, we can really only focus on a phone-related subset of packages.

Sorry for the bad news.

OE has rtorrent (a command line based torrent client with modern features like DHT) and Transmission (the client the original poster requested) . Both are successfully built on the OE tinderbox and in angstrom distribution.
