Thomas's article was originally written for Fedora Core 2, and so is
based on a fairly old version of gnome-btdownload due to more recent
versions requiring later versions of various gnome libraries that were
not available in FC2. FC3 does contain the required libraries and is
therefore compatible with the latest version of gnome-btdownload
(0.0.17). I have FC3 RPMs available at: http://www.city-
fan.org/ftp/contrib/bittorrent/
