rtorrent pkg

September 10, 2008

Some people have been asking me about rtorrent and where to get it for the Mac. It’s in both fink and MacPorts, but if you think that installing a whole package management stack is a bit overkill for a nice BitTorrent client, I’ve compiled an internet-ready (yay!) DMG using MacPorts. You can download it from here.

At 6.8MB it includes a lot of stuff you would normally never need, like the header files of libtorrent and all support libraries. The binary is placed in /opt/local/bin. Intel-only.
