    Default Installing Bittorrent Sync

    Hey,

    I am trying to install Bittorrent Sync from here: http://www.bittorrent.com/sync/downloads

    I dont see a rpm, so how do I install this? I am not familiar with compiling and all of that. Detailed steps would be a HUGE help.

    Thank you all!

    No compilation required, the file is a binary distribution.

    I've just put the btsync executable in my ~/bin directory and run it from
    there. Extract the tar file using the tar command:

    tar xfvmz btsync_x64.tar.gz

    Copy the extracted file to ~/bin :

    cp btsync ~/bin

    Run it:

    btsync

    (Depending on the shell you use, you might have to run 'rehash' first)

    FYI, this information is in the "Other platforms" documentation at http://
    www.bittorrent.com/sync/help/other-platforms

    Connect to localhost:8888 in your browser to manage the installation in
    Linux (there's no native GUI).
