    Hi Guys,
    1. Can someone explain what I would need to do in order to use a different bit torrent client on the humax box? ( I'm thinking of using rTorrent. Its written in c++. If this is an issue I'll use deluge instead as its python based.)
    2. Do I need to recompile rTorrent for the humax architecture or anything?
    3. Also how do I add it to the list of apps to start up when the box is turned on?
    Thanks for reading, I look forward to the responses!

    You need an answer from one of the members who has done this e.g. af123, however in the mean time :-

    1) there is a link to creating packages for the Humax HERE
    2) Yes
    3) Add something to the linux startup e.g. /mod/etc/init.d/S81my-rtorrent

    Thanks Ezra,

    1/2. After reading about the packing and the compiling pages I think I'll try deluge as its python based and shouldnt need recompiling to run.
    3. What is this called? I'd like to do some reading on it to understand how to add things to the init.d.

    I'm really not the right person to explain in any detail, but the init.d directory holds a set of instructions that are 'started' in numerical order on boot-up, there are some notes HERE, I think you would need to read up quite a bit on Unix / Linux systems before attempting to install anything
