This is to Macwen and MasterC. I've been using limewire for a long time and I haven't been pleased with it. I hardly find the songs or divx movies I'm looking for and when I do the downloads start off slow and seldom complete. I got kazaa lite 2.0 running and its great. I've never tried "the Gift". Is it as good as kazaa in finding media? If it is no better than limewire than it aint worth it.

I would stick with kazaalite if I were you, it's hard to beat the database. It does however really suck for brand new releases cuz there are a lot of idiots that put fakes up.

For really new movies and dvd screeners and such, try emule (lmule in linux) or even edonkey. There is an rpm for lmule in red hat 9 but I am not sure whether it installs without a hitch or whether it complains about dependencies like a lot of software seems to do these days.

The bottom line is to know what you are looking for and know the best app to get it.

There are instructions for how to use edonkey on guide on the software page, btw along with lots of other filesharing apps as you know if you have looked at yet.

Unhappy displeasing taste (bad wine setup?)

In regards to setting up wine:

Of course, as I'm trying to fix things I seem to be making them worse. I uninstalled wine using the proper method (make uninstall). I haven't used the rpms. I moved my old .wine and "c" directories out of the way so I could start over. Then I followed the above directions very closely. As a test, I ran "wine notepad" and get as a reply:

wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...
err:seh:EXC_DefaultHandling Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x402a2378

This makes me unhappy. Any suggestions?

The thing about the latest giFT release (I do think you'd have to go cvs) is that it compiles in a module that taps into the the kazaa network, so now you don't only have the kazaa network available, but the other protocols it uses as well. That's why I was/am suggesting it Native app, kazaa database... It's like chocolate and ice-cream, they just go together better

Cool

Master C,

I read on the site that it no longer uses the Kazaa network or at least it sounds that way. This is what I got from the FAQ section:

"FastTrack (KaZaa, Morpheus, Grokster)
What is this "FastTrack"?
"FastTrack is the company that licenses the library that KaZaA/Grokster (Morpheus uses Gnutella now) operates off of
What's your connection with FastTrack?
giFT 0.9.x used the FastTrack network. FastTrack changed the encryption, end of story. Since October 2001 we've been fully focused on the "new" giFT and OpenFT. Don't ask us for a FastTrack client, just forget about it.
Are you working on getting back into FastTrack's network?
No. Although quite a few people made attempts to reverse engineer the new encryption, nobody has succeeded, and nobody is working on it anymore because OpenFT kicks so much ass nobody even remembers FastTrack. "

This was posted in March. Has anything changed since then? Is there an older version that uses the Kazaa network?

Pretty much the only thread you'll need, the links run off from it.

bentonj,

I'm sorry to hear about your troubles. Don't feel bad or give up because it took me my whole weekend trying to get it to work. Can you get "wine" to print the version "20030508" and help options. Does it give you any errors like not being able to find the fake c drive? It may not be the wine install that is the problem but it could be the wine config file. CHeck out this site right here about the config file:http://www.winehq.com/Docs/wine-pkg/pkg-wineconf.shtml
The most important parts are being able to find the c drive and specifying the correct dlls.
I got an error like that above. For some reason wine was still looking at my old config file that I moved to the trash (weird huh?)
I rebooted and it worked. Did you try rebooting after re-installing wine?

progress?

I figured out the problem from earlier. The error seems to happen when having LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 and having a wine compile using configure --with-nptl.

So now I'm back to where I was with the "unhandled exception" dialog box. I managed to get some wine debug info and found the stuff below of interest.
Does this mean that CD_CLINT.DLL is causing some problem?

helpful to linux_pioneer?

linux_pioneer, you mentioned that you were still going to try to get 2.1.0 to work. Here's a link that you may find interesting (browse some of the comments... you'll find a how-to of sorts, though I haven't tried it myself).

Cool effort, effort, effort

So, it took me two days also. Maybe the secret of getting Kazaa Lite 2.0.0 Build 2 to work on RedHat 9 with WINE 20030508 is to focus your efforts on it for two days.

It's funny, too, because ultimately, after wine was installed correctly the secret was exactly what linux_pioneer said it was (i.e. skip the system.reg step of the instructions on http://home.wanadoo.nl/raschouten/).

Strange thing for me though, was that even without that step I sometimes don't connect and have to run the program a couple of times before a successful connection. But, afterwards, it seems fine. One or two crashes in the last hour and that's all. Thanks everybody.

bentonj,

Im happy to see you got Kazaa Lite 2.0 working. It looks like we made it through the same struggles. But when you finally get it working it was all worth it. Let me know if you ever get kazaa lite 2.1 or any other good windows programs working on wine. kazaa lite 2.0 is currently the only program I use with wine.

have you tried giFT at all? it can use a FastTrack plugin to access the kazaa network no problem.

giFT.

I tried to get giFT using the cvs tree but had some problems. Could you post the link to the plug-in?

I got giFT installed but got errors of missing openft plugins when I tried to run it. I downloaded this gift-fasttrack plugin but my cc wouldn't compile it. Any suggestions Master C?
