installing rtorrent and rutorrent in FreeBSD 8

Postby Paradoxium2004 » 08 Oct 2010, 07:05

I have no idea when to install first. They both have dependencies, and require ports and packages, but I'm not sure what get installed first.

Can anyone tell me what I need to install, and in which order I need to do it?
Thanks in advance.

Start here: Chapter 4 Installing Applications: Packages and Ports

As for [port]net-p2p/rtorrent[/port]:

Code: Select all
# cd /usr/ports/net-p2p/rtorrent
# make install clean

Code: Select all
# pkg_add -r rtorrent

The beauty of the ports and package system on FreeBSD is that you don't have to worry about what to install first or what dependencies something has. Let the system figure it out.
