Hi,
I too can confirm that files selection is not working(Ubuntu).I tried with several torrent files and result is always the same:ktorrent 2.2 ignores it and starts to download all files in list.Too bad.It's using only 1% of my CPU(2.14 used 1-10),and I like upload/download tabs.

Strange, for me selecting single files works with no prob... but I experienced the same window-behaviour, which really was a pain. bitcrazys idea seems to be right, since the window can be set to normal size when all torrents are stopped and the 'Firewall-message' disappears.

BUT: this seems to be solved with the last release 2.2, so give it another try after upgrading.

Yet again there is no VHT-support for this version when taken from the SuSE-Guru-repo... Raoul, these are your builds, aren't they? Why is VHT always disabled?

Hi,
as I've tested, ktorrent 2.2 ignores my selection of files to download. Even with just one file selected, ktorrent tries to get the whole torrent.
With statusline enabled, the main window is larger than the screensize of my laptop. If the line is too long, the window gets too wide on the right side. I think, it's because of the message saying something like 'No incoming connections, probably firewalled' even if there are connections established.(They are shown up in the line, too)

Greetings

I just upgraded from 2.1 and now I'm missing the info center that used to be on the lower half of the screen. Is there a way to get this back?

KTorrent is getting better with each release - thank you for a great app!

Is there a reason why the .rpm-packages for openSUSE 10.2 do not provide the VHT-feature? When compiling Ktorrent myself, VHT is included, in the versions I get from KDE-backports and guru, VHT is an option in the settings-dialogue, but it's alway marked as 'off'.

It would be nice to see a manual included as well, since it is offered in the 'Help'-menu.

I recommend to update the screenshots here on kde-apps, since the GUI has changed a lot meanwhile and offers many new features.

Novell don't want to ship true p2p. Hence official versions, and versions on the build-service are built without VHT - or DHT as non-Germans call it ;-)

The guru version is built with it. He only duplicates the effort on the buildservice because that package is crippled.

But you have to be attentive to not accidentally update to build service packages.

CPU usage has dropped down to about 0.7% and the plugins are now visible again in configuration - like the new interface mucho gusto :). Thanks!

Thanks for this release, 2.1.4 was abusing cpu at 13%

with 2.2beta1 it is around 0.5 to 1.5 cpu usage. which is good.

whereas utorrent 1.6.1 (used with wine) only uses 0.5 cpu.

also crashes disappeared with 2.2beta1. thanks.

and the new interface is much better. though i still don't like the "sidebar" like "Groups" button.. is there any way to hide "Groups" on the left side?

thank you for ktorrent ;)

I believe it should really become a part of official KDE, ie kdenetwork.

Its a must-have for torrent files, and as we all know, torrent files can be of huge help to download Linux Distributions.
Most of them not only offer .iso files but also their .torrent files for that.

Thanks George for updating.. I was wondering what's causing the crashes. I thought that it is crashing because I am have a long queue of torrents.

I appreciate your quick and keen observation :) Thank you.

hello, I am using azureus even if I am not happy much with that because of huge memory consumption...but that handles chinese chars properly when u download something using some chinese torrent site...

I tried to use Ktorrent which failed to do the job in case of chinese torrents...i think because of encoding...

could you plz look into this issue so that it can handle non-english chars as well?!!

thanks!

Hmm.. I already downloaded some torrents with chinese characters in it (torrent file, downloaded file) and it worked well. Could be something else wrong with your system.

well, I also got the issue in the mean while...the problem is lying with my partition (FAT32) which is keep sucking me until now...have no other choice but to keep it because I am having dual boot and M$ can't read ext2 file-system. If I save the download in my linux partition, it handles Chinese chars well....but it doesn't if I choose my FAT partition as destination to save the download.

If you have any idea of how to get rid of it, please enlighten me. I am sick tired of it. I tried to mount the partition with some Chinese encoding in fstab but no luck yet :-(

For god sake, get rid of the fat32, as you said there is the problem. Also if you're having dual-boot, use ntfs, linux can write on it with ntfs-3g tools.

You could also use EXT2-IFS for Windows, which gives Windows the ability to read/write ext2/3 partitions.
http://fs-driver.org/

I think, this is more safe than ntfs-3g.
