ok, i just 'upgraded' to red hat 9 from 7.3 - not really sure why, I guess just to create a new adventure.

anyway, having some trouble getting kazaa working. Since I did the upgrade my setup is a bit different - it had worked perfectly in rh 7.3 btw.

my kazaa version is 1.71 (at least it worked)
and my wine version (compiled) is 20030318

I replaced my system.reg file when I had it installed in 7.3 and it worked great, but now when I try to open it, it opens fine and goes to the upgrade to version 2.0 garbage which I obviously bypass, but then it just sits there saying connecting, but it never connects.

any ideas?

I already reinstalled wine and then reinstalled kazaa and then I rebooted. Still no workie! lol

Thanks in advance.

Disclaimer: I'm not an expert by any means, but this may put you in the right direction.

Over at http://www.winehq.com there's some information about running WINE on Red Hat 9. There are some changes in the kernel that require different options when compiling WINE. Apparently no official rpms are available yet. Check out some of the last two months' newsletters. You must recompile a newer version of WINE in order for it to work with a RH9 system.
Also, in regards to Kazaa, my experience is that system.reg file that people are using doesn't work with Red Hat 9 with the latest version of WINE. The old system.reg that comes with WINE works well.

I overlap installed wine and it seems to close to working. Everything happens the way it should except it won't connect.

I'll keep working on it till i get it.

yoww,

I use rh9 and kazaa lite 2.0. I ran into the same problem as you. I could not connect. The problem was the system.reg file in the ~/.wine directory. I used this website for instructions: http://home.wanadoo.nl/raschouten/
Its meant to be for mandrake but I got it to work. I only had to skip on part. I did not use the system.reg file they say to put in ~/.wine. When I did this after installing I could not connect. After 2 days of pain I reinstalled kazaa without that step. Worked like a charm. Hope this helps.

thanks for the info, can you tell me exactly which files you used,
I see that you used kazaalite 2.0 - where did you get that from? I can't seem to locate any links that have it for download.

Also, what version of wine did you use and was it the source or the rpm?

Thanks

I reinstalled wine and am trying to install kazaalite, but I get this message when I try to install it:

wine klitekpp210b3e.exe
wine: chdir to /tmp/.wine-charles/server-345-144678 : No such file or directory

I also get that when I type: wine -v or wine -version

any ideas?

I'm kinda kicking myself for changing to red hat 9 in a way, but overall I don't regret, this is just a pita!

ok, I now have a clean install of red hat 9, but I am wondering how people were able to install wine from the source in red hat 9. When I tried to configure it (./tools/wineinstall) I get the following messages:

./tools/wineinstall
WINE Installer v0.74

Running configure...

configure: creating cache config.cache
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

Configure failed, aborting install.


is there a way around this? how did those who installed wine in red hat 9 do it? did anyone get these messages? yes, I did install the development tools when I installed red hat 9. I checked the config.log but it didn't enlighten me, can anyone help?
I'd really like to get kazaalite working in red hat 9.

yowwww, it looks like it can not find your C compiler or the path to it is wrong. At prompt type $PATH. This give you a list of paths LINUX will search for. Look for your compiler in those directories. If you found your compiler and it is not in those directories, make a symbolic link to your compiler. I'm using Mandrake and my complier is located in /usr/bin. Well there is an symbolic link to the home of gcc directory.

I don't think WINE has networking even though LINUX has networking setup properly.

IMO, WINE sucks, I rather use Bochs, VMware, or Win4Lin to run Windows programs.

Xmule is easy to install and configure.

Xmule sucks, it goes really slow and it takes hours before a download starts. Anyway, I installed giFT, and I must say: IT ROXXX!

But on my windows machine, I run Stealth DC, a DC client with a build in sharefaker, slotfaker and 'currently connected hubs faker'. With that beauty, I could find anything. To bad it doesn't work in Linux: when I run it with Wine (or WineX) and try to download something, all my downloads time out.

thanks for the input

I got this for my paths:
bash: /usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin as well as my user home directory

Seppe, can you tell me more about gIFT. I've heard a lot about it, but can you just give me the basics - how big is the database compared to kazaalite? How would I go about installing it - I hear cvs is a real pita.

I agree Xmule sucks for getting music and such, I use Edonkey to get movies mostly. It seems that each has its purpose. Kazaalite would suck to get screeners but it is fairly good to get cams and music.

Update - I've installed cvs using the red hat 8 rpm (worked fine in 9) and am following the guide but after I press enter when it prompts me for a password, it logs me out. Yet it doesn't tell me how to create a password if that is what I need to do.
I get this message:
cvs login: warning: failed to open /home/user/.cvspass for reading: No such file or directory
maybe I will just try the tar.gz file instead and make it instead of using the rpm.

wow, this thing is way more of a pita so far than kazaalite thru wine could ever be! The documentation is crap, the install process is unclear, I tried three different files, then when I tried the source I got the same message as I do for wine - no gcc!

giFT doesn't HAVE a database, it is simply a daemon to connect to a number of different p2p services such as gnutella fasttrack (kazaa). you should go to gift.sf.net and read what they have to say.

I've been there, that's where I got the download from. The problem with just reading what is on that site is that it can be tremendously biased. In real life, I have seen plenty of different opinions on gIFT in here alone, so I would rather go by what happens to the average user, not what the developers hope will happen.

Hey all.. I got Kazaa Lite 2.00 buld 2 working on RedHat 8.0. I'll try working on gifT in a bit. Has anyone noticed that Kazaa runs soooo damn slow?? Download speed is fine, it's just navigating through the app.

I'm just wondering if this is wine or if I need to get a better combination of dll's. I realize that using an "emulator" won't be a fast... just a question.
