Distribution: I ador(A) MY Fedor(A)-Really Reaching to INFINTY,Or most probably ive already reached there!
no i dont have it!!
well i think that by package manager u want to say that amule is already installed on my PC but ive searched for it in my add\remove software but its not there so i still dont know what is the best P2p sw and from where to get it and how to install it!!
Hmm, didn't the installer ask you whether you wanted to enable extra repositories? If not, you should use this: http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/
Just pick the relevant options and paste the output from the last screen into a terminal.
By the way, when you searched Add/Remove software, did it show a list of software categories? Did you search under www or internet or whatever could be the proper section? Are the third-party repositories enabled?
There are other P2P clients as well, by the way. Azureus isn't bad. There is also Frostwire, which may be available only outside the repositories. And if you install wine, you could use Utorrent.
Well, yes, it's a bit unconventional. But then Debian has you type those things into a file and Ubuntu used to have the same requirement.
Fireblade, in case you're a total newbie, search your menus for a "terminal" item. Then proceed as oskar said; don't forget to type your root password when requested. If you find the pasting thing horrible too, you can also type it over - letter by letter. ; D
No, it won't do that automatically. It will just add more software items to your Add/Remove list - aMule should be one of them - which you can then select by checking its box and clicking on Apply (or Install?).
By the way, you may still need to enable those extra repositories first after the cut and paste thing. If you don't see any extra software listed, you know that you should. There is an option somewhere on the Install/Uninstall Software dialog as far as I remember.
The difference in debian and old ubuntu is that the additional repositories were already in the sources.list file, you just had to remove the comment. Even if you add them manually you still know which line is for what... but anyway... It seems to work for some people.
