Finally!


I'm using Mandrake 9.0 right now with my ADSL connection. Thanks guys for all your help. I was wondering though, I don't know anything about music, nothing I've tried works. Can anyone tell me how to download music with Mandrake?

P2P filesharing is actually one of Linux's weakest point in my opinion (because I like it). I tried qtella and the whole gnutella network but it's terrible.

Right now I use dcgui which uses the direct connect network. It is pretty far from intuitive but I have started to get the hang of it and I am starting to get good results with my music searches.

Definitely agree 1000.5 % The gnutella crap sucks. For P2P dcgui is the only way to go (on win or Linux IMO). It does take a bit to get the hang of, but once you get a few files shared (20+ GB's) You can get into the good hubs, where the people with alot of files and fast connections live. Then you are good to go. Anything you want, in full albums at high quality and at high speeds. Personally I love the Asgard hub. Great stuff/people there. I'm also a huge fan of Smallville and Angel and so the Smallville hub is great for those

Cool

I use Kazaa Lite 1.72 with wine....the kazaa lite 2 series installs and works but i have had alot of failed downloads with that those, the newest kazaa lite (i think 3 not sure, but called k++) doesnt install, but yea, the 1.72 works great and its all on the same network so it doesnt matter which kazaa you get. Just search around because you need to get a few DLL's and a special registry. I will post the instuctions up later so some of you can see.

Your usually better off installing from a command.

Are you installing a tar.gz file or an RPM ? This is asked all the time, a quick search will be fruitful.

All of you gnutella fools...you all must harness the power of
giFT


hehe...i don't know, but I find giFT pretty spiffy.

As for the installation, giFT is still in cvs but the documentation is very clear-cut.

DC-Gui??..

Think DC-Gui is kinda good.. only good/bad(pick the one of your choise) thing is that you also must share some..

Can be downloaded from http://dc.ketelhot.de
