Comment 1 Paul Howarth 2007-03-11 09:46:31 EDT
Bittorrent on rawhide has been downgraded from 5.0.5 back to 4.4.0, which is
more stable. You need to do this downgrade manually, e.g. by removing bittorrent
and re-installing, or by downloading the package and installing using "rpm -Uvh
--oldpackage ..."
Comment 2 Tom London 2007-03-11 12:55:10 EDT
Thanks. 4.4.0 works.

You want this closed?
Comment 3 Paul Howarth 2007-03-12 03:18:36 EDT
