Hi. It appears that Rakshasa.no is down, and has been for some time. Is it coming up again or is there an alternative to downloading stables versions of rtorrent and libtorrent.

Why not download it from Github? https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/releases

Weird, seems there's been some issues with the server. Currently looking into it.

Fedora has cached release tarballs.

Site is still down for me.

Can anyone confirm these packages are identical to older versions?

http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/repo/pkgs/libtorrent/
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/repo/pkgs/rtorrent/

I specifically compile and install 0.9.3/0.13.3 to Raspberry Pi because of #191 , and that release it's not on GitHub.

All downloads of rtorrent via Homebrew are currently broken. Would be awesome if you could get this up and running again. Thanks!

Just got back to work from a prolonged sick leave, so haven't had the time/energy to fix this.

Seems the server got owned and ended up as a spam bot, thus I'll have to set up something from scratch. Unless I'm too lazy it'll be done in over the weekend.

Any updates on this?

@rakshasa Can you please at least upload the older versions (<= 0.9.3/0.13.3) to somewhere? I couldn't trust fedora's mirrors.

Yes... in addition to having to rebuild the server my domain name needs to be moved from a (no longer existing) one-man company to me personally... Looking for alternatives, however if you have no issue with running autogen.sh, use the github autogenerated releases.

This issue seems to have gone on too long due to various issues getting my server back up... so another solution had to be found:

https://github.com/rakshasa/libtorrent/releases/tag/0.13.5
https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/releases/tag/0.9.5

This is a new release with just minor fixes cherrypicked and using tags and a special release-0.X branch to keep the auto* files.

I haven't been able to test them properly since my mac is set up to compile the old branch.

I apologize for the long delay, the last few months have been a string of events ending up in a clusterfuck.

Regarding older releases, I can recover the files, however I can't host them on github as that is built from tags.

@rakshasa no worries, take your time man, godspeed!

It would be awesome if you could upload the older releases e.g to mega.co.nz, mediafire.com or some other file sharing server, I'm sure some good people will be more than glad to upload and host them on CDNs.

Sorry, I don't have... for rather re... err.. stupid reasons... access to the disk images where they are located.

If someone has those and want to upload them, there's plenty of distros with the hashes that can validate them as the real thing.

@rakshasa Shit happens, I hope everything on your side gets in order in ease.

I've checked rtorrent-0.9.3.tar.gz from fedora repository, its md5sum is 0bf2f262faa8c8c8d3b11ce286ea2bf2 and I can see various results on Google with that

I've also come across this script, which I think validates with checksum from the original URL, and the hashes match. Also same with libtorrent 0.13.3.

I've not tried yet, but as of this result I can assume for now fedora repos are identical with the original download.

I'd appreciate if someone else could validate other versions, too.

Jari, would you mind terribly, if I created a mirror for the old libtorrent.rakshasa.no site based on the archives from the wayback machine?

I don't mind.

Currently I've got the rtorrent.net domain, however I've yet to decide what to do with my current host. (or switch)

After my first comment, I grabbed the contents of "downloads" from archive.org, just to be sure the files are all there. It is a bit awkward to mirror.

One file, xmlrpc2scgi.py, was not available. But there seems to be a (possibly out of date?) version of that here:

Compiling from these links doesn't work:

https://github.com/rakshasa/libtorrent/releases/tag/0.13.5
https://github.com/rakshasa/rtorrent/releases/tag/0.9.5

configure: error: Package requirements (libtorrent >= 0.13.5) were not met:
Requested 'libtorrent >= 0.13.5' but version of libtorrent is 0.13.4

0.13.5.tar.gz gives me the folder name libtorrent-0.13.5 but when configuring rtorrent (./configure --with-xmlrpc-c) it says it needs libtorrent >= 0.13.5

did you give us the wrong version?

@maiofalmo Yes there is a problem... reported 10 days ago here => rakshasa/libtorrent#82

To fix this : Update the "configure.ac" file from libtorrent 0.13.5 with these modifications => rakshasa/libtorrent@a7857b2

Then recompile / reinstall libtorrent 0.13.5 and you will success to configure rtorrent 0.9.5. ;)

0.9.6+ is a stable branch and won't include fixes for modern C++. For that use the master branch.
