    you wont belive this but the command to install rpm files is rpm. try to get the deb files if you can and install it with dpkg.

    rpm -i somefile.rpm
    or
    dpkg -i somefile.deb

    read the man pages for both rpm and dpkg.

    Since bittorrent is in the debian package repository http://packages.debian.org/cgi-bin/s...ll&release=all
    How about:
    apt-get install bittorrent
    Or you can use klik http://klik.atekon.de/details.php?se...age=bittorrent

    I hope this helps.
