Azureus. Works fine. I don't think there is another for Linux
EDIT: There is

The is a native bittorrent client and gui at: http://www.bittorrent.com/
But I recommend BitTornado: http://www.bittornado.com/

These are both Linux apps so you avoid the Java overhead of Azureus.

Another vote for Azureus. Sure, you get the Java overhead, but if your machine is relatively powerful, it shouldn't be much of a problem.

i only use azureus for torrent sites that won't allow shadow's client (an earlier version of bittornado)

Thanks guys. Can you let me know of a repository where I can find Azureus ? I cannot find it on my usual reps (dag, freshrpms, livna stable).

Hmm. Is this repository accessible via Yum/Yum Extender ? If so, do you know what syntax to use in the .repo file and what URL to use to get the public key ?

http://azureus.sourceforge.net You must also have java installed. Follow these instructions: http://java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml

What's the advantage of Azureus over using the basic bittorrent gui provided at www.bittorrent.com?

It has quite a few more bells, whistles and eye candy.
