File-Sharing clients


OK, I am looking for a good p2p program for Linux.

1 I want to be able to connect to the Kazaa network, since I download most of my Linux documentation and tutorials from there...

2 To have a nice-looking interface (this one is not nessesary)

3 And the most important, I need it to be available to download in rpm format since I hate the compilation errors...

you Need Apollon..... it will

1) support the following networks... FastTrack(which is Kazaa to windows people) giFT and Gnutella and openFT

2) look Great

3) help you get over your fear of compiling things

alternativly... gtk-gnutella, uses only gnutella, which is just as big as kazaa, and has all the same stuff, but does come in rpm form.

Apollon is in an early stage of developement, and is a little annoying to get worming for people who dont know how to use linux properly.

otherwise, kickass !

oops, yeah sorry....

http://gtk-gnutella.sourceforge.net for gnutella

http://apollon.sf.net/ for aloppon.. (you need the all in one installer)

here's what ive discovered from my first failings at installing apollon...

1)there is a bug in the installer in how it checks that whoever runs it has root privilages. you can get round this error by running the installer as a normal user (not su or root) then entering roots password when prompted.

2)when all is installed and working, it complains about files not existing in your come directory, you have to copy them manually from the apollon install directory.

just some configureation files that SHOULD be coppied from the main install directory into your home directory, but they dont for whatever reason.

here is a priceless command.... 'strace'

strace -o /home/user/error.log apollon

will log all the activities of apollon into the error.log file.

read the log, or do searches on it to find the problem.

somthing like
cat /home/user/error.log | grep /home/user

will output a list of all files the program attempted to access in the home directory.
some will be followed by an error, file not found. ect ect.

actually, ive just re-installed linux and need to re-install apollon.

when i have, i will give you a list of these files to coppy manually, but im going away for a few days, so maybe you will have solved the problem by then ??? i will check back here in 5 days or so.

If you want access to the FastTrack Network from apollon I reccomend you take the following stepsonly works with mandrake-I'm sure similar systems operate on other distros)
From Console
1. "URPMI gift-fasttrack"
2. "URPMI apollon"
3. "gift-setup" - make first option anything but zero(0) and when enter the word "FastTrack"(same caps) as the protocol option.
4. Run apollon

If you have any problems post in this forum I will moniter it.

I too was looking for a P2P filesharing client that could hook to the KaZaa network (FastTrack). I'm looking to replace the Windoze network on my martial art's instructor's network with Linux, but needed a KaZaa client to appease his 25 yr old daughter and 15 yr old son. When I was searching, Apollon is what came up...

Haven't tried it yet, so I can't rate it.

I've downloaded the Apollon installer, but if I try and run it (as a user or as root) it just tells me "permission denied".

What's going wrong? :P
