    phanuet,

    Welcome to these forums. We all hope you will enjoy here and find usefull information, either by searching or by asking.

    But, as most of us have no crystal balls, it would be wise when you at least told which openSUSE level you are using, which Desktop (when applicable) and more that could help us to help you.

    In this particular case it would be usefull if you told us what you wanted to download (or if it happens with all downloads) and how you started it. (I e.g. clicked yesterday on openSUSE-11.3-DVD-i586.iso.torrent and it worked flawless).

    In general the statement: "Help, it does not work" is realy not enough to get people here (all volunteer users like you) to spend time trying to help.

    Just a suggestion: your ISP blocks this kind of traffic?

    NEVER LOG IN AS ROOT. That is law #1.

    This should answer most of your questions about using root: SDB:Login as root - openSUSE
    When not, please come back.

    When I tried dl'ing a .torrent file using kget it just dl'ed the file onto my disk, then if I tried opening the .torrent file with kget it said protocol not supported

    Should there be a torrent listed under plugins? I don't have one, I do have libktorrent installed and ktorrent works fine

    same issue? different?

    running 11.3 and kde4.5rc2
