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?

  • What a smart suggestion! Thank you so much! I'll have to build a Pi where I am first...

  • 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.

    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.

    +1 for the terrible attitude on "Try it and find out". This is the true description of useless entropy.

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.
