    How does one install this?


    Hi Folks,
    I just downloaded Azureus_2.3.0.6_linux.tar.bz2 but do not have the slightest idea
    how to install it on Suse 3.1. My guess is to start with unpacking the BZ2 file (with what application and how to initiate it)
    Then, I'd expect multiple files that would now be unpacked. Can these files be installed using Yast, or was it unnecessary to download this bz2 file in the first place?

    Thanks

    Depends on whats in there, if its a source file you will have to make it, have you tried reading the README file or the INSTALL file?

    Ok, azureus is an exception to the linux rule, once extracted there will be a file in the extracted directory simply called azureus, to run azureus, the complete process would be something like

    tar xjvf ./azTarball.tar.bz2
    ./azureus/azureus

    asuming you have java installed, that will start it, Azureus does not distribute packaged versions, but you should be able to find RPM's for Suse of azureus from someone like packman (google packman suse for more info)

    What kkubasic said should work. But, I perfer www.rpmfind.net over www.rpmseek.com

    rpmfind.net loads faster and has a cleaner design. It is also really easy to find what you want with just a few clicks.

    Ok, got Azureus installed OK.
    When I click a bittorrent link called "Every Prog for video editing from www.torrentbox.com ", I get the choice to save or open with,,,, so I open with
    Azureus, and that file/link gets transfered to Azureus OK, but fails with a message:
    " ERROR: Directory creation failed: /home/jwf/Downloads/azureus/Every Prog for video editing"

    Even if I create the directory manually, I get errors.

    Should I be saving the link, then opening the link with Azureus 'open'?

    OK, Found the error... had to change the permissions of the directory.
