basically you need to recompile glibc with nptl in the make file, have it enabled. I've never had to manually do that so you'll have look thru it and enable that part of the make. After that reboot, it should basically work from that point.

I just looked at the zip file (since i'm in windows) the entire cvs of that is the files you need. Its the source for the cvs...you don't need to download. *sighs*...just do the configure make etc..

I went to the folder I extracted and tried to configure make etc. and it didn't work. I guess I will just use my windows partition for bit torrent right now. I'll puzzle it out on the weekend when I have more time :)

Never mind, read em. Not everyone uses p2p to share illegal files though. I was going to use it to seed a video file that I myself made to some friends. But I can understand, seeing as MOST people do use it to share copyrighted material. Sorry.

I'll just set up an FTP server or something :)

Xephar, to share that video file you'd actually have to host a tracker and upload the torrent file and seed it. A bit more then just having a client.

Also please ignore the person who made the read the rules comment with 8 posts total I'd consider that more of a trolling then anything else.

Please, don't feed the trolls.
Plus, I know at least one great reason to use BT:
easy downloading of linux ISOs ^_^
