    IBM Thinkpad T30 - USB 64GB Boots Knoppix 7.05 - Now what?

    Hi,

    The IBM T30 has only 500MB of RAM. I can read PDF while listening to Audio Books. My Question is: How can I Download torrents on this laptop? On My PC I have and use Shareaza; I click on the Magnet link of a torrent and it connects automatically and Shareaza does the rest. When Finished I use Norton Anti virus and then put the files in there proper places. I then have to copy them to the 64GB USB stick and boot the laptop and now I can use them. But My laptop has no problem connecting to the web; and using Knoppix, I see better download speeds. My problem is; when I select the magnet link of a torrent, I am prompted for a program to use. Please, Any suggestions? I have it ALL on the 64 GB USB 7.05 DVD Stick. And a ton of stuff is available, I just don't know what to use. Thank you.

    You can do the following:

    1. Download Fatrat (torrent downloading program that runs in Knoppix)
    2. Right click on the Magnet link of the torrent file and copy the link (all of it)
    3. Open Fatrat and start a new torrent.
    4. Paste the link of the Magnet link and Start it.

    It will work ;D

    I honestly don't use Knoppix much any more, but 7.05 already includes KTorrent (under the Internet section of the menu)? Is there some reason that KTorrent can't be used?

    Thank you for the responses. I found 'transmission' somehow or it found me and it seems to work pretty good. 7.05 or 7.2 (I use them both) - but, it does not work with all sites. It is one click operation when it does work. And that is great. Thanks again.
