Utorrent Error - Invalid Parameter
Posted 18 January 2010 - 11:52 PM
I've not had it before....i've installed all the releases from 1.72 - 1.85 and all of them give the same error...it starts downloading and then comes up with the error.
I'm really baffled and think i'm going to give up on my love affair with utorrent and move over to deluge
I just want a nice reliable rss capable torrent client.

I'm pretty much a linux noob....i cant even build rtorrent to look at....
Its so confusing...
do you think you could give me some guidance on using the sarge repo...

Then open up your file manager as root.
Go to /etc/apt/
You will find a file called sources.list open it up
make sure each line you see on this list starts with a #
# "comments those lines out and linux ignores them like they are not there"
then add these to the file
deb http://archive.debian.org/debian sarge main contrib non-free
deb http://archive.debia...g/debian-non-US oldstable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb-src http://archive.debia...g/debian-non-US oldstable/non-US main contrib non-free
deb http://archive.debia...debian-security sarge/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://archive.debia...debian-security sarge/updates main contrib non-free
Once your done exit out to a command prompt use this command
you are done.
But at this point I would get a package manager since you are a noob to do this use this command
apt-get install synaptic
if it does not put an icon for you open a terminal and use this command to start it
With synaptic you get a gui interface that shows you what packages are available for install. And installing packages from this interface is pretty much point and click.

I've managed to pin the problem down to filename length or illegal characters.
Sooo now i've come up with the following solution...or the only solution i can think of that will likely work..
Is there any linux script or app that will download me from an rss feed and amend the filenames before saving it to a specified folder.
