trying to install giFT...


after doing ./configure...i get this mseeage:
checking for lt_dlopen in -lltdl... no
configure: error:
*** Couldn't find ltdl library. If it is installed in a non-standard
*** location, please supply --with-ltdl=DIR on the configure command line,
*** where `DIR' is the prefix where ltdl is installed (such as /usr,
*** /usr/local, or /usr/pkg). If that doesn't work, check config.log.

I need giFT (i think) to install this Apollon filesharing program and I keep getting that error...what do I do?

PS-if you know any other easier to install filesharing programs, just let me know!

The easiest one:
http://gtk-gnutella.sourceforge.net/

As for gift, most distro's have binaries for it.
Always name your distro.
Even with the binaries, you still need to open the right ports(read it's faq).

you will be missing dependency's !
you havnt given the right part of the error message for me to tell which dependency

what Distribution are you using ?
if you are using gentoo, let portage do it...
"emerge apollon"

anyways.. yeah, apollon is definatly the BEST p2p program out there.
its a frontend to giFT and can connect to may different protocols.

go to the very first few lines of the error messages... there will probably be a header file not found

You need either GTK+ and/or libXML.

As for Apollon, use URPMI =>
In root:

URPMI gift-fasttrack
(will install the deamon and a FastTrack(Kazaa) plugin, do the same thing for other plug-ins)

URPMI apollon
(Will install the Apollon client.)

Next run:
gift-setup

That should make them work.

Went to root console under the apollon directory and got this:

[root@cpe-**.***.***.*** apollon-1.0b1]# urpmi gift-fasttrack
no package named gift-fasttrack
[root@cpe-**.***.***.*** apollon-1.0b1]# urpmi apollon
no package named apollon

ignore all this fancy URPMI crap, and lets do it the normal boreing reliable way....
download the all in one installer from apollon's sourceforge site.... and let it do its stuff....

if it has a missing dependency, then install it... or if you dont understand the error message, post it here for some1 to translate it for you.

Further suggestion:

Use LimeWire. LimeWire relies on Java, which installs pretty easily, and Limewire comes with a self-installer and works the way a Windows program does. I fought giFT for two days and finally surrendered. It and Apollon were incredibly slow to connect, and just adding fastrack to it brought the entire configuration to its knees. What a pain! The UI, both GUI and command line, is archaic.

Try these:
http://www.ls-l.net/apollon/

Ps. Unlike what others may claim, urpmi can help you.
You just need to add some URLs in the config file.
It's like Apt for Debian or Emerge for Gentoo.

Could you tell me exactly how you installed apollon/gift?

Cannot install apollon-0.9.3-3plf.i586.rpm
this is NOT the all in one installer !

THIS.. is the all in one installer
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/a...4.run?download

download it... login as root... and run it with

chmod +x ./apollon-dist-0.4.run
./apollon-dist-0.4.run

easy as that !

make sure you actually read the links you click, or you will end up downloading thee wrong files !!!
