    Looks like I had to create another thread because of no help. I have FreeBSD 9.0 installed on a Kimsufi 2G. I used the
    Code:
    wget --no-check-certificate -O autodl-setup http://sourceforge.net/projects/autodl-irssi/files/autodl-setup/download
    sh autodl-setup
    auto script from the rutorrent website to install. Well, the installation failed because of a conflict with
    Code:
     libssl.so.6 and libcrypto.so.6
    . That is as far I have got in this process. I'm stomped and don't know what to do next. So anybody mind helping a "idiot", out with this task.:stud

    So I can use this in replace of rutorrent? What else do I have to install on the kimsufi?

    Nothing else is needed.

    And I suggest you read the terms and conditions very carefully. It doesn't prohibit P2P specifically but they do not allow "illegal" filesharing.

    Your question doesn't make much sense.

    What exactly are you trying to archive?

    I would like to install a desktop on my server. i.e. Gnome. What process of action I have to do to achieve this.

    Maybe I wasn't clear enough for what I was seeking help. Is there a diffrence in the installation of a desktop on a server vs a desktop on your home computer? I though the installation was diffrent. I know how to install the desktop. Since I'm installing in a diffrent enviroment. I assume that maybe there is something diffrent I have to do. Like I said I'm a "idiot" doing this right now. Not ashamed of it that's how it's when your learning.

    No.
    Why would it?

    The only real difference between a desktop and a server is how you use them. That said there are loads of people (me included) that don't install anything graphical on a server at all.

    Don't know that's why I ask. If I knew all of this, I wouldn't be begging for help. Only reason I'm asking here is because I'm a new FreeBSD user.

    I was just wondering why you thought there was a difference ;)

    net-p2p/rtgui

    Install ports-mgmt/psearch to search for ports; makes life easier.

    Thanks part of my problem is the lack of symlink

    ln -s /lib/libssl.so.7 libssl.so.6
    ln -s /lib/libcrypto.so.7 libcrypto.so.6

    I will try again and post the output errors or if I fix.

    The version numbers are there for a reason: It means there's an incompatibility in the library. So this is *not* a recommended "solution" as it may introduce strange behavior, crashes, etc.

    Installing rTorrent is simple and can be done through ports, just make sure you select the xmlrpc option (IIRC it's off by default). Next install either Apache or ligthttp and enable the SCGI features (As described by a host of online articles/HOWTO's), and finally just fetch & extract the ruTorrent package in your wwwroot.

    I have no idea how all of this relates to the file you're trying to download in your OP, as this appears to be a plugin for irssi (...?)
