BitTorrent should be installed before installing EZtorrent. Run the following sequence of commands to install EZtorrent:
The configure takes all the usual autoconf options, such as --prefix and --bindir.
ezt's manual page contains additional documentation for using EZtorrent.
The "ezt start" command should also be added to the system's startup script, so that EZtorrent automatically runs when the system boots. It's also a good idea to add "ezt stop" to the system shutdown script. For systems that use SYSV-style init scripts, the ezt.sysvinit script can be used, perhaps with minor customizations.
