Ok so I got this Mac, and I'm trying to install various Torrent programs. When I install them it seems to work alright, but when I double click a torrent file to start downloading, the icon for the torrent client flashes, hops down to the Dock and goes away like it's either running in the background or just refuses to run. I don't get a client window like the Windows versions.

Is this because I'm running shitty old Jaguar 10.2? Or am I doing something wrong with the install. As I've said before, I haven't even TOUCHED a Mac in almost 20 years.

Well I got Tomato client to work I think, but of course every link I try is dead, and I know better than to ask for them in open forum. :D

Have you tried Azureus? It's what I'm using with my Mac. Then again I'm also on Tiger, so I'm a couple ahead of you.

Also, have you tried dragging them into the client instead of double clicking?

I use Acquisition. It has Bittorrent and Limewire combined.
