utorrent works on LINUX!

Recommended Posts

Oof... µTorrent + Wine might possibly be a bit heavy for a system like that, IMHO =o I can't really say what the resource requirements are, but with a system like that, a heavy compatibility layer like Wine along with just BitTorrent in general might make your system cry.

It wouldn't hurt to try, I guess, but I think you're better off using a different system for something like that.

So, ANYBODY...

Let's make here a little database of working uTorrents on Linux ;)

It could be very useful for people like me and maybe next Linux-fans...

Could You, guys, describe here Your system?

1. what CPU,

2. amount of RAM in Your machine,

3. what versions of uTorrent

4. what distribution of Linux,

5. what version of Wine, Cedega etc...

And if You can - specify:

- how much % of CPU and

- amount of RAM takes uTorrent (with Wine, WineHQ, Cedega etc.)

I don't think wine is really THAT heavy. Sure the startup may be slow, but it takes little resources after that. From what I see, the wine server only takes up about 1.6MB memory when running uTorrent. Here's my system:

Athlon 64 3000

512MB ram

uTorrent 1.6.1 beta

Kubuntu 6.10

Wine 0.9.24

uTorrent takes up 20MB of memory, and 0? CPU. It's really nice.

It definitely runs on wine but still has the icon/minimize/system tray problem and the column entries flashing on update. Don't turn on the minimize on system tray or close to system tray feature, it will still produce an blank open minimised window with nothing on it. To minimize to system tray just do the above and just click on the utorrent system tray icon once to minimize to tray and click again to maximize. If anybody has a solution for this I all ears. Other than that it runs fine. :)

PROCESSOR : Celeron 2.2 Ghz

RAM : 256MB DDR 333

OS : Xubuntu Linux 6.10 (Ubuntu/Xfce Edgy Eft)

uTorrent VER : 1.6 (build 474)

WINE VER : 0.9.25 always updated

For a native Linux alternative, you can try Deluge. Its still in its early stages but already quite functional. The creators are regulars of the Ubuntuforums community and decided to create it for lack of lightwieght bittorent application with gui for linux especially ubuntu. Read all about on their webpage(http://www.deluge-torrent.org) and the official Deluge forum (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=172) at Ubuntuforums.org.

Cheers,

Working perfectly on PC-BSD 1.3.3 (FreeBSD 6.1) over Wine 0.9.30.

CPU usage is about 1.2% with 3 torrents running.

Northwood P4c 2.6

1gb ddr400

Nothing too amazing with tweaks or anything.

FC6, latest version. Athlon 64 3800+, 1GB ram, runs perfect so far. Actually, I am very pleased, its working better than the native azureus I usually use.

I love µtorrent also I love gentoo and ubuntu GNU/Linux and I hate wine. Guys please release µtorrent under GPL licence. Maybe someone would like to port it as a gtk/qt client. You only end up wining more people pleased with your client.

//later

yes, and the 1.7beta versions works well on wine, yet.
