Need Help - Looked Over Threads


Hello I know that this subject is dry by now, I have read all the threads on this forum. Anyway I am trying to install Apollon, I download gift. I install it, that goes well yet I am unable to find out where it installs. I use Midnight Commander to search for gift. This finds the directory but I am still not able to find the executable. I understand that this is need to continue with the installation of the OpenFastTrack Protocol. If you know what I can do or tell me what I am missing that would be great.

gift-setup

to configure it. then

giftd -d

to run it. you'll need a front end, like giFTcurs. gl

---------------
edit: or i guess Apollon is the front end? sorry, i don't use that so i didn't know. but i would guess after configuring gift-setup you can run apollon by launching it from the command line. if it's not in your path, update your database (as root) with:

# updatedb

then do:

# locate apollon

if it doesn't find it, try Apollon (case sensitive), or see if the binary has another name and try to locate that. gl.

ok, so if I download gift and do the standard
./configure
make
make install
I then proceed to do that?

yep, but it appears you also don't need to run the gift daemon (giftd -d) if you're using apollon. it's started automatically when you start apollon.

ok I have gone through those install steps more then a few times and I get the message telling me that it isn't setup correctly. I read the readme and docs to guide in that process yet I still get that same message. Do you know of any guides or do you know personally what do do? Thanks again.

did you select 1 (or anything but 0) in the first step of gift-setup?

if you did, post your giFT config file so we can try to figure out what's wrong. also, could you be more clear on what's not working, giFT or Apollon (or both? "all of the above?" ) .
