I'm already using my Pi as a media center, now I would also like to transform it into my download center. I've seen that both deluged and amule-daemon packages are available, but the question is, will I be able to use them both?

I have a 128/128 MB memory split, are 128 megs enough to run both Deluge and aMule even if daemonized? Anyone tried them yet?

    Try it and find out? – Jivings Oct 10 '12 at 22:34
  • What a smart suggestion! Thank you so much! I'll have to build a Pi where I am first... – Avio Oct 11 '12 at 7:20
  • Wow, sarcasm. What I'm suggesting is that this question is impossible to answer without someone doing the legwork. Not to mention being extremely localised. – Jivings Oct 11 '12 at 7:37

    In fact you are free to vote down (as you already did) or even close the question. But you are not free to tell me "do it yourself". A moderator on a Q/A site that tells to the users "do it yourself" is a serious problem. And just to be precise, I didn't ask "please somebody install these packages and tell me if it works". I just asked if somebody already did it. So you are just trying to irritate me (as you aldready did), and that's again serious for a moderator. – Avio Oct 11 '12 at 7:51

    +1 for the terrible attitude on "Try it and find out". This is the true description of useless entropy. – Pitto Sep 4 '16 at 11:53

Let me give you some other alternative: use mldonkey.

sudo apt-get install mldonkey-server

It has torrent and donkey protocols in a light daemonized server, that you can access via a HTTP connection using a browser, even from remote machines.
