rm -rf rutorrent/plugins
mv plugins/ rutorrent/
chmod -R 777 rutorrent/share/*
sudo apt-get install mediainfo ffmpeg
rm -rf rutorrent/plugins/rutracker_check

Installing webmin (not rtorrent specific but still good to have)

wget http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/webadmin/webmin_1.610_all.deb
dpkg --install webmin_1.610_all.deb

Example ~.rtorrent.rc

# This is an example resource file for rTorrent. Copy to
# ~/.rtorrent.rc and enable/modify the options as needed. Remember to
# uncomment the options you wish to enable.

# Enable DHT support for trackerless torrents or when all trackers are down.
# May be set to "disable" (completely disable DHT), "off" (do not start DHT),
# "auto" (start and stop DHT as needed), or "on" (start DHT immediately).

# Remove a scheduled event.

Added this to raspberry pi to stop after torrent finished at 100%

# Enable the default ratio group.

# Change the limits, the defaults should be sufficient.

Run on Startup

put this in crontab -e
