When compiling deluge and it errors complaining about “KeyError: ‘libtorrent’“, this probably means nothing about libtorrent, it means python is being fucking retarded again. Upgrade your setuptools (from 6c9 to 6c12 or whatever version they have now: pip install –upgrade setuptools) and try again.
Obviously I didn’t mention this issue enough yet since google didn’t return my blog for this issue as well as I’d like.
Today’s task with a problem: upgrading to Deluge 1.3.0-rc2 from rc1. Just for reference, I ran into this problem before. Since we’re upgrading Deluge, I’m upgrading the torrent library first. The latest version seems to be libtorrent-rasterbar version 0.15.2.
benv@machine:~/libtorrent-rasterbar-0.15.2$ ./configure --prefix=/usr # And some more options, but nothing with boost
# Some configure junk and then:
Checking for boost libraries:
checking for boostlib >= 1.36... yes
checking whether the Boost::System library is available... yes
configure: error: Boost.System library not found. Try using --with-boost-system=lib
… don’t you just hate it when your computer hints you to try something trivial? (continue reading…)
Every now and then I like to leech something, and it happens to be that using bittorrent has a lot to offer in terms of availability and usability. However, as usual I have my demands. My demands for a torrent program are basically:
- It has to run on Slackware
- It has to run as a daemon (in daemontools if possible)
- There has to be an easy way to control and view the status, like a web based GUI.
