3350Re: BitTorrent Daemon
- Jul 2, 2005There is the utility called "screen" which lets you "background" an
entire shell (telnet) session, as well as have multiple sessions
running, then be able to reconnect to them later. Someone got it
working on the original LS1 a while back. I have it on my
Debianized one (but hardly used it because I use a graphical VNC
If you are interested in it and can't get it going, let me know and
I might be able to come up with a version that will run for you If
you have an LS-1. For an LS-2 you might need to hunt down an LS-2
owner to test it.

some sort of bittorrent client that runs in the background like
this. As far a Python, it is an "interpreted" lanquage. So this
means you don't need to worry about what OS it was "compiled" for or
any thing like that, you "just" have to get the Python interpreter
installed and running.
Someone should to a HowTo on running bittorrent in the background.
I would be interested because it seems cleaner to me than running it
in a background-able shell or VNC environment.
