Torrent system in SpringLobby doesn't work under Linux.

Post by Pxtl »

using SpringLobby 0.0.1.10446 (Ubuntu Intrepid). I search for files in springlobby's torrent system and click download, nothing happens. I click "download map" on existing games, nothing happens.

I have the dirs set up in ~/.spring/ and have put the basic KP mod and map in there, so I don't know what's failing.

Whoop, just tried on Win32 - it's failing here too. Anybody know what gives?

Combined with the fact that Jobjol's search-function is borked, it's now really farking hard to get files.

yeah. Fuck it.

Something I suggest is building SL from source. I havent tried it yet, but it might work. The repo didnt have the latest version ever, because who ever maintains it sucks at it....

I think the problem in this case is that Springloby's downloader UI is a little underdeveloped. There's very little info as to what's going on - outages and whatnot. Plus the lack of a useful right-click context menu for the downloads which is pretty much the standard way to manage torrents.
