Announcing The New µTorrent Server for Linux

Recommended Posts

Engineering has new versions built and tested for Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.04, and Debian 6 and 7.  We are waiting on the deployment folks to make these available for download from the web site.

Maybe they could post a torrent more quickly :-)

Yesterday I downloaded and installed the server on Ubuntu 12.04 in my 32-bit netbook. Works just fine. However, after shutting down Firefox and rebooting my system, all the files I was downloading had disappeared. What's the good of that?

 

I normally use Transmission for downloading bit torrents in Linux but I've been using uTorrent client on Windows for years and I like it. Both Transmission and uTorrent (Windows) "remember" the activity at shutdown and restart it when the client is restarted. I would rather use a client in Ubuntu, not a server (although I don't understand the difference other than the Linux app runs in a browser. Why?).

Interesting, must be the 32 bit libc6 libraries are compatible or something. I'm running 64 bit and 12.04 only contains libc6 2.15. Unless you did a dist-upgrade and you are not really running 12.04 anymore?

We are still waiting on the deployment folks to post the new versions to the web site.  We set up a system that should help them with this, and they have the new archives of the product; this task must be competing with their other responsibilities.  I apologize for the wait.
