Unhappy Kazaa, flashget and borland c++ equals in linux


I have installed Mandrake 9.2 on my machine and after a few days I think I got a decent OS working with all my hardware and its really nice since I wanted to enter the linux world desperately cause I was bored to ctrl+alt+supr and reboot in windows.

Almost all the software I have in windows has its counterpart in Linux but:

1) I still haven't found a p2p client (like kazaa or emule/edonkey would be nice)

2) A download manager like flashget or anything that can handle or resume the downloads I have started in flashget cause it's boring to get into win just because I want to finish a download of an ISO or a movie

3) And what I guess is a GUI for gcc, so I can make those simple C++ programs I used to do with Borland C++ in win.

I tried to use wine to get flashget working but it only executes the program but the downloads don't start, so I guess it has something to do with the way Linux and Windows manage the internet connection with my Ethernet adapter, but I really don't know cause I'm just a below newbie in Linux.

Any suggestions accepted

Thanks

Hola julian_s!!!

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.org. Let's get started:

1 - There plenty of P2P for Linux, most of Windows P2P as edonkey, has an equivalent under Linux. Not Kazaa though, but that will keep you free from Kazaa renamed files (Once I tried to download Buffy episode from Kazaa, took a hole day and at the end it was Dark Angel.... oh well). Here are some links for edonkey/emule for Linux:

edonkey2000:
http://www.edonkey2000.com/downloads.php

xmule (emule clone)
http://www.xmule.org/

lmule (emule clone, not being updated, but works fairly well)
http://lmule.sourceforge.net/

2 - That I cannot really help you, I've not used a download manager since I stopped using modem, years ago. Although, all P2P accepts resume files.

3 - What you are actually looking for is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment, I think). There're plenty of those for Linux. Kdevelop is shipped with most of distros with KDE. So it's on your Mandrake CD's. Here are some links:

kdevelop
http://www.kdevelop.org/

anjuta
http://anjuta.sourceforge.net/

A side note though. If you are looking only for a text editor with "highlight" for C reserved words, most editors will do the job. Vim, kedit, mcedit. They are all also shipped with your Mandrake CD's. Links:

gvim/vim:
http://www.vim.org/download.php#unix

I use vim myself, but I found it to be a little hard for newcomers, but you can get by after a while. Emacs is also very good, and most likely shipped with your Mandrake CD's:

http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/emacs.html

looks great, but I never gave Emacs a try. Well, I hope it was of any help and that you enjoy your stay here

Regards!

GTK-Gnutella is a very good p2p client.

I cant really answer any questions regarding P2P, since i never use it, but I can tell you that "jed" is what I consider one of the best editors for programming and scripting. I've never seen the greatness of vi like many others do... Actually I think it SUCKS, but thats just me... =)
jed is available through http://freshmeat.net

I use Gift to connect to the Kazaa network.
http://gift.sourceforge.net/

With the right plugins, you can connect to the Kazaa network, the GTK-gnutella network, the Napster network, and a couple more at the same time. I have to warn you, it is a little tricky to get installed and configured correctly. So read the documentation very, very carefully. It took a little head scratchin' before I got it working, but it was worth it. It's very stable, and with the Apollon gui front end, looks nice too.

As far as point number 2 goes, I think there is an application named

"downloader for X"

This works similar to flashget/getright....and also has a "download basket" utility ...

Regards,

amit

thanks guys really good help

I've tried gtk gnutella and it looks nice, it even seems to be a lot faster than kazaa, so I guess that would be enogh for me, also I downloaded xmule but I couldn't install it on the first time because of some libraries wxwindows or some but I got it and It works, now I'm wonderring if I can get the files that I'm downloading in windows eMule to be completed in xmule, I tried to make xmule Incoming folder the same that I use in eMule, but it keeps complaining about permissions and stuff because of the different file systems, so I would take any suggestions on that, anyway thanks for the help so far

Why would you want to install Kazaa on your system. Don't you know they load your system down with scum-ware (like gator) which tie up your system resources and that compromises your system. The effects are a sluggish execution of programs and files. If your system has been running slow or even locking up, point to Kazaa as the culprit.

Julian, why would he worry about spyware written for windows? Also, kazaa blows, use bit torrent, much quicker, 1.4 gig movie in about 2.5 hours, and no fakes or renames, period.

i hope you realize that the above "stat" is mainly based on your connection, rather then the program you use ;-)

If you are used to Borland C++ perhaps you should try Borland Kylix or Borland builderX.

Here is a table of equivalents Linux - Windows:

Question: Isn't Borland C++ a command line only compiler? gcc should not be a problem for you
