Ktorrent cannot handle sumotorrent.com torrent files. Why?

Asked by Uqbar on 2008-04-13

Everytime I try to download/open a torrent file from sumotorrent.com I get an error saying:
Error during download. Probably the torrent file is damaged or it's not a torrent at all. (roughly translated)

As this hapens for all torrents, I suspect something weird in ktorrent more than in in the website.
By the way, I'm running v2.2.5.

Hi. Yes, that particular torrent did not work for me in Ktorrent. However it seems to be a problem not related to Ktorrent but rather a problem of the tracker because if you look at the tracker info it says that "...Our public passkey is currently disabled"

However, I downloaded a torrent for Ubuntu 7.10 file from sumotorrent.com and it worked for me.
