Thanks again.

As you can see I've been trying to seed but it seems not many people like torrents.

Could anyone give fatrat in the main testing community repo a try as a torrent client? I have been impressed by it, plus it has quite a few other features.

I'm not finding it, do I need to add a custom repo?

I'm very very new so if you'll give me a heads up on how to find it I'll install, forward ports, download a ***** or something and report results.

And here for the setup for preferences pinning http://mepislovers.org/forums/showthread.php?t=26401&highlight=pinning

Stevo,

I am still running a 64-bit version of 8.0.15 and can not find "fatrat" in testing, unless it has moved, could someone provide

My current testing repo

I'm only finding fatrat in the M8.5 CR's (not the M8.0 CR's), the newest version is in the testrepo.

Stevo has mentioned that it's sometimes possible to install community repo packages built for M8.5 in M8.0 so you might follow the wiki's M8.5 sources.list article: http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php? ... _MEPIS_8.5 and temporarily add the 8.5 CR's (enable the testrepo).

edit: After adding the M8.5 CR's I would first simulate installing fatrat to make sure it's not going to adversely affect your Mepis 8.0 install. Something like the following command will simulate installing fatrat

Code: Select all

su -c 'apt-get -s -V install fatrat'
You can then examine the command's output to see if anything bad is going to happen to your M8.0 install as a result of installing fatrat from the 8.5 CR's.

I am still posting MX-15 both the 32-bit and the 64-bit version 24 hours a day...

It seems the seed numbers are slipping a bit, since released

64-bit 33
32-bit 44
