Thanks for the immediate response, answered before I could post I already found what was wrong. If I did a little more search before I wouldn't have bumped this thread, but I hope that will be useful for people in my same situation.
I just had to install a lot of dependencies, under one sole command:
- Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
That installs something around 90 MB of libraries if I do remember well. After that, ./utserver worked.
What is odd how do the program work... a Linux newbie like me never experienced anything like that before... actually, a tiny bit of searching reveals that, but I guess that if I write it down here it wouldn't hurt.
After getting the process to run, just go to http://localhost:8080/
to get the visual interface) in your browser like it's a website. You'll be asked a password like when going to your router config page or to some other sites like online universities registrar's offices. Default is admin as username and a blank password (after entering it with those, you can change your login data too in the config page).
I'm so happy I can get μTorrent to work on my LMDE machine. I mean, I sticked up with Transmission until now, but then it completely screwed up a 40 GB torrent when it did download a whole 70% of it... and it was well slow, a lot of seeds but even more leeches. Also, UPnP didn't work with it, and it completely sucked up my connection if I didn't severely limit peers and upload to 10 Kb/s, which means killing p2p. As for Vuze, I find it to be horribly heavy, slow and filled with a lot of useless stuff, and it even didn't resume downloads from other clients, unlike Transmission. μTorrent is the thing!
