I can't get Azureus to boot up on my new iMac Core Duo... any suggestions?
Try reinstalling it.
Has anyone used Azureus on there Intel iMac?
Bits on Wheels is a good alternative if you can't get that one working...
Ok, thanks, I'm using Bits on Wheels now.
No problem at all.
Bits on Wheels is a great torrent downloader...I wish there was mac version of utorrent
what's so great about utorrent? i find bits on wheels to be far superior than utorrent (slow xfer speeds) and azureus (prefer this no the windows)
I can answer your question...Explain how utorrent is 10 times better than Azureues, etc.. But nothing compares to trying and seeing w/ your own eyes.. go download a copy of utorrent on windows pc and post back.
Does Bits of Wheels have trackerless support? If it does, then I'm in. Otherwise, I'm stuck with Azureus until they finally port uTorrent to the Mac (which would be awesome).
Yes. There's a special version for Intel systems.
It worked like a charm for me.
Bits on Wheels is also half a year old, there is no universal binary, the developer seems to be missing, and to top it off it's banned on a few private trackers for misreporting stats (including ones that i like a lot).
Azureus is the only full-featured universal torrent app right now, as Transmission and others are unibins as well but aren't as full featured (it's like, repackaged mainline...lame)
And, having spent enough time on #utorrent and talking to firon, and expressing moderate interest in working on the mac port of utorrent (which is really basically on hold right now), a utorrent port to OS X would have to sacrifice cocoa goodness in favor of keeping the utorrent windows ideals of having a small tiny app with a lot of features...so much so that it might just be commandline or just, not that pretty.
utorrent also doesn't have slow transfer speeds, i dont know what kind of crack you're on. i've maxed out DSL/cable/LAN connections with utorrent.
with a core duo and a moderate amount of ram, i would imagine azureus is manageable.
