To take a stab at answering my own question, it seems as if there is just an
absence of leechers at the moment, according to this ktorrent site, which
seems to indicate that you need to have leechers in order to seed.


That site suggest that there is simply no one leeching Gutsy 7.10, which I
find hard to believe.  Leechers are listed as 0(111) with an upload speed of
1.1 kb.  Seeders are listed as 0(1127) which also seems odd, because it
appears that there are more seeders than leechers (possibly).

This page suggests that my problem is that openSUSE shuts down seeding after
download is complete, and it suggest that you click the "keep seeding after
download is finished" box under the "Download Options" under Preferences in
ktorrent.  I have done that!  So I don't understand why seeding has stopped.


Thanks in advance.
