You realize that other clients stall and retrieve metadata too, right? They just don't change their status away from "downloading".

Just point it where it's supposed to download to and move on, or go to the description page and click the magnet link.

If they removed the "stalled" and "retrieving metadata" announcements like most other clients do, you stupid fucks wouldn't be complaining. This is why everything gets simplified to shit.

qBittorrent isn't for retards, sorry. Some of these >>66336671 might ignore your user input more, and assume that you're too disabled to manage your own torrents. That seems to be what you're looking for.

So tell me, how do I pause a torrent so that it can continue when I want it? Apparently hitting the Pause button is wrong?

>>66337031
What did you ask for then?

>>66337057
What? It says it has 5 peer and 1 seeder and I'm connected to none because it's fucking stalled out of its ass.

This.
qB is the most stable desktop client on GNU/Linux that I've used.
>>
>>66337069
IT LITERALLY IS SUPPOSED TO BE STALLED IF YOU PAUSE IT YOU SHIT EATING RETARD
WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU THINK THE PAUSE BUTTON IS FOR?
>>
>>66337069
>how do I pause a torrent so that it can continue when I want it?
You can't, realistically. Not sure if other clients work the same way, but you lose all connections when you pause. If the seeder(s) that you were downloading from were found through say, a lower priority tracker, DHT, etc. you will have to wait until the client finds them again and they'll start uploading to you when they're ready.

The torrent might have seeders and peers, but they might be unable to upload to you due to various reasons on their end. Though, at this point I'm 99% sure you're one of those anti FOSS fags.
>>
>>66337181
WHY DOES IT STAY STALLED FOR HOURS IF I HIT RESUME YOU FUCKING ILLITERATE RETARD???
>>
>>66337197
Not him, but not a single torrent client starts a downloading immediately after resuming. Also:

>What? It says it has 5 peer and 1 seeder and I'm connected to none because it's fucking stalled out of its ass.
Where is the confusion? Seeders may be available, but your client hasn't been connected to them and your downloads can't start. Again, is this your first time using a torrent client? Please show us any piece of software which would download a torrent file without any connected seeders.

WOW, your torrent isn't downloading when zero seeds are connected? What will they think of next?
>>
>>66336507
tixati

it's a bit unintuitive design-wise, but its solid and dependable as a rock
>>
>>66337672
So you're telling me the peers can't send you information they don't have (both are at 98.0% like you)?
>>
>>66337753
you're mom are at 98.0% like you
>>
>>66337708
it's what I use. don't use private trackers but I've heard a lot of them will ban you for using tixati. dunno if it's true or not
>>
>>66337813
some of them do, because it allows 0% seeding

Just download utorrent from its website and call it a day retard, you don't deserve qbittorrent.

I just wanted to have some sympathy for OP who seems to be in the similar situation.
There is a guy from Burgerland who is an actual seeder. Bitch appears for 1 hours then disappear for the next 3 days.

>doesn't know workarounds for buggy shit
>just use a honeypot
also transmission sucks ass. either use rtorrent or a client with a plugin structure
>>
>>66337194
Sometimes they just cap their uploads to 0 because they're assholes. Or the client is restricted (through settings, or by the router capability itself) from creating any more tcp peers, or the upload cap is spread too thin by other torrents/peers that they refuse to upload to you because 500 bytes per second for a 4MB chunk is completely inefficient and not worth wasting a tcp connection on, assuming one of the peers doesn't just straight up disconnect during the 3 hours it would take to upload said chunk.
I feel bad for you and everyone else effortposting in this thread, he's was very obviously the thick-headed autistic type that assumes any community that doesn't straight up ban him welcomes him.

>>66337940
>workarounds
>his alternative to qb is some ncurses hipster garbage
I literally found that out within seconds the first time I encountered that annoyance. Thats the beauty of the gooey, you don't have to trudge through the entirety of some autists magnum opus to find out how to start downloading shit off the internet.

>honeypot
You fucking retard, you actually think I'd bother giving him legitimate advice?

>rtorrent
Sounds like another one of those /g/ memes, I'll keep using the program I'm already used to thank you

I'm mostly using scripts to import my shit into transmission anyway. Im gonna stop talking to you, you clearly show no ability in logical thinking

Qbittorrent did have a massive problem with stalling happening forever especially at the very start while other clients would have no problem, but that has been patched out a while ago so you're either retarded or didn't update your software, maybe both.
