can't seem to execute gtk-gnutella


There apparently was a weird problem with my gtk-gnutella.

Just this morning, i tried to run the program using Kfind, and when i saw the permissions column of the KFind, it stated that it was inaccessible.

So, what i did was that i uninstalled the program, re-downloaded the program from the web, reinstalled it and rebooted my com.....

When i ran KFind again, everything seems to be normal... as in... under the permissions column, it stated 'read only' . Since this seemed to work before.... i had no qualms about it.

However, when i tried to click on the icon.... the program couldn't seem to launch. I also tried going to the directory itself and running from there and it still couldn't launch....

And I went to the console and typed 'gtk-gnutella' and this is what was shown....

" 03/12/23 12:28:26 (WARNING) : Detected amount of physical RAM: 377340 KB
You seem to have left another gtk-gnutella running (pid = 3292) "

Sorry for the long description but i just want to be as detailed as i can.

Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Thank you

Try "killall gtk-gnutella" and try again.

I tried typing killall gtk-gnutella and this was what the console reported,

gtk-gnutella: no process killed

However, i still tried running gtk-gnutella from the console but the same problem happened again.....

Do you guys know how to solve this problem?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

you should read up on PID and what they mean to you. read the manpage for ps for all sorts of boring crap. for you right now though

kill -9 3292
or
pkill gnutella

Yeah,
Have a look at "top". It'll show you everything that's running. You can get the PID from there and "kill -9 #pid#". Also "ps ax | grep gnutella" should show you something.

Do you think you could paste the url for me to check out the info on PID?

Thanks.
