Fedora 9 Update: bittorrent-4.4.0-7.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-7286
2008-09-24 12:34:39
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : bittorrent
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 4.4.0
Release     : 7.fc9
URL         : http://www.bittorrent.com/
Summary     : BitTorrent swarming network file transfer tool
Description :
BitTorrent is a tool for distributing files. It's extremely easy to use -
downloads are started by clicking on hyperlinks. Whenever more than one person
is downloading at once they send pieces of the file(s) to each other, thus
relieving the central server's bandwidth burden. Even with many simultaneous
downloads, the upload burden on the central server remains quite small, since
each new downloader introduces new upload capacity.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update fixes a number of minor bugs such as silencing installation
scriptlets (#457563), creating a pid-file for the seed client initscript
(#458926), removing the tracker pid-file when the service is stopped, using the
new standard scripts for creation of the "torrent" user and group accounts, and
reducing dependencies for use on bare mininum systems.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Fri Aug 15 2008 Paul Howarth <paul city-fan org> 4.4.0-7
- Use new scriptlets for user/group creation
- Fix up torrent homedir silently (#457563)
- Create a pidfile for btseed (#458926)
- Remove tracker pidfile when service is stopped (no need to include the
  %ghost-ed pidfile now)
- Use %{_initrddir} instead of %{_sysconfdir}/rc.d/init.d
- Call initscripts directly instead of via /sbin/service to reduce scriptlet
  dependencies
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update bittorrent' at the command line.
