Hi:

I"m running Gentoo PPC on my PowerBook G3. I'd like to run torrent clients on this. I'm unable to find any suiteable torrent clients for Gentoo PPC. Is there one available?

Thanks!

I can't think of one that wouldn't work, actually.

Azureus (java) is probably the best choice, although some people find it a bit sluggish compared to other clients.

ctorrent is great for command-line. its pure c/c++ which seems to lend to its speed.

there's also the original bittorrent client and bittornado (theshad0w's experimental client) which are python based.

If you do azureus I would suggest getting the binary package (net-p2p/azureus-bin) since the source has a large number of dependancies and being java offers no real performance advantage.

Well, you're right, there really were not any bittorrent packages marked ppc stable. I've marked bittorrent and bittornado stable on ppc. If you try others with success, please file a bug so they can be marked stable.

Thanks!
