Drobo

rtorrent

Been running into some issue compiling rtorrent for the Droboshare. Anyone got this done?

Yeah, I got it done. I’m gonna post a HOWTO soon enough.

Hi,

Sorry for the delay. I just posted the last part on the series of cross-compilation posts to get rtorrent on the DroboFS. The rtorrent post is here. You can work backwards from there to get all the dependencies compiled as well.

I won’t lie to you: it is not that easy and can be quite the challenge to get it done, but after you get it running it is a very smooth experience. Unless rtorrent is checking hashes after the torrent is done, CPU usage is very low.
