The package net-p2p/createtorrent has no manpage (fortunately, at least createtorrent -h works).
Also, when creating a torrentfile via:
createtorrent -a http://vip.tracker.thepiratebay.org file.tar.bz2 file.torrent
It cannot be uploaded to thepiratebay because thepiratebay thinks its tracker URL wouldn't be in the file. If you have a look into the file, you'll notice that port 6881 has been specified:
But the correct URL (because 6881 is, as -h even says, the standard port, so there's no need to include it, it's even contra-productive as you see) would be:
So, you have to edit the resulting .torrent-file to get it uploaded to thepiratebay. I could image that this can happen on other trackers aswell.
Sorry, the only patch we apply here is to make this compile w/ --as-needed; you'll need to take this upstream.
