Now I tried limewire for about 6 months ago and what I remembered was that it worked. BUT! It was like 10% of the downloads which even started.
So I stopped using it.

Limewire is very nice if you know how to use it... I don't like gtk-gnutella, there are few thing annoying about it (like the download screen too far away of the search screen...)

If you know how to use Limewire all your download will start however, Limewire is really heavy for a litle computer.. too much java crap start at the same time.

Audiogalaxy is dead. RIP. I am currently using limewire but the ONLY way to go is direct-connect. It is wicked and boasts 5 petabytes shared online.

the only problem is that there is no front end that I've found and I dont know the text mode commands to use it!

I know it's wicked because i used it to downloaded some flicks on a windows machine.

Yeah I realized that Audiogalaxy's dead. After have been using it for 4 hours they shut it down! And I personally believed that Audiogalaxy was the best MP3 sharing program I've ever used in linux.

The direct-connect program you're talking about, is it "dctc" you mean? If that't the one then there's actually a gui aswell called "dc-gui".
Anyway I tried to use it, with the gui, and I once made it connect to a hub. After about 4 hours after killing direct connect I then realized that something ate up my bandwidth and realized that the "dctc" still was loaded into memory and people where downloading from me!
Should perhaps try the "dctc" only not using "dc_gui" to check if that's any better...

This is the message you get when trying to download ANY mp3. I quote:
"SEARCH PROHIBITED
You cannot request this song due to copyright restrictions. Please try a different search."

I don't know why they stopped the service...anyone out there who knows?

Damnit! The world is going to hell in a hand basket. First Napster goes, now everyone else. Pretty soon I am going to have to leave my house to actually go to walmart to sample some tunes. That sucks!

Damn DMA!

Well I don't think you should be too sad about these incidents...they won't be able to wipe aout all the OpenSource file sharing programs out there...

There will always be someone who has a server put up somewhere to mke people share files.

Since no-one is likely to openly and blatently say 'here, have my ftp site, and copy all the music you like from it', you'd be best to set yourself up an Instant Messanger ID and have it in your profile.

Maybe, but the content of this thread is still relevant...

As such, I have now been using the dcgui client since this thread was posted and the program is much better than the restricted windows one, And it makes DC the very best file share medium, by far.

We are told to search the posts before duplicating a thread, but then you get upset about reviving an old post! What's gonna make you happy?
