Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I tried searching for a solution, but it seems no one has asked this one about running Kazaalite 2.0.2 under wine. Starting off: My distro is slackware 8.1, Kazaalite 2.0.2 and wine is 20030115. Now, I copied my Kazaalite folder from my WinXP parition, because wine was giving me crap about no IE being installed...and for some reason, the Microsoft download site is down.
Anyways, I copied the comctl32, shdocw and shlwapi libraries to the directory with Kazaa.exe, like was suggested in another post. The error message that pops up when I try to run it is "couldn't load library comdlg32.dll". Then I click ok and it closes. I tried downloading that .dll and putting it in the folder with Kazaa.exe, and it didn't help.
Before people tell me to switch, I can't. My college blocks all filesharing programs, and as far as I know Kazaalite 2.0 is the only program that connects out on port 80, which allows me to bypass their blocking. If someone can either help me get Kazaalite running under wine, or tell me of another P2P filesharing program that I can run through port 80 in Linux, that would be great. Thanks in advance!
You can try a newer version of wine.I had problems with emule under wine and if I remember right you are supposed to use the same dll's there to make it work - didn't.
With version 20030115 it did work - sort of anyway - some unimportant parts of ths gui didn't but it is functional.Might work for kazaa too.
You could also try mldonkey and set the port to 80 there.
Ok, I'll try mldonkey, and see if I can configure the ports. Also, I'll try VMware to get Kazaalite running.
By the way, thanks for reading my post, subservant. I say that because if you had actually read what I wrote, you would see that I have to use a P2P that uses port 80, which limewire does not. Also, my title was "Kazaalite", not just Kazaa, so I'm obviously already using Kazaalite.. Thanks for the help, though.
I decided to try once more, and I think I almost figured it out. I copied DLL's directly over from my WinXP partition, and now it loads up, but it hangs on "connecting".
I have searched and found that people say to type "iptables stop" and "ipchains stop" but when I type that from root, it just says "Bad argument". I then typed "iptables -F" to flush it, then "iptables -L", and it says that INPUT and FORWARD and OUPUT are all accepting. I tried "ipchains -F" but it says "ipchains: incompatible with this kernel".
Once again, I am running slackware 8.1. I am behind a router, but I didn't think I would need to set it up to work with Kazaalite because I didn't have to in Windows. Can anyone help me out now?
Forget about ipchains - thats history from 2.2 kernels.If and thats a big if your iptables are setup at all you will have to change some rules.Don't know the default setup for slack.
You are probably best off starting a new thread about that iptables story.
I don't know how kazaa work works.It might be some other problem with the router but if you can connect with windows you can rule the router out as the source of your trouble.
Originally posted by hackers_ uhhhhh learn how to read... he wasnt even talking about kazaa, he WAS talking about kazaalite
Ok, read through his post once more. Then read mine. Then read his again. He was telling me to "get rid of Kazaa and get Kazaalite". Well, the title of my post was "Kazaalite questions." It stands to reason that I already know about and have Kazaalite, since I am asking a question on how to get it working under wine. Why would I be asking about Kazaalite if I didn't even have it?
He was telling me to get Kazaalite even though I obviously already had it. Something he would realize if he had actually taken the time to read my post. Even my post title said "Kazaalite" in it. Guess he just totally misread it. You did it too, from the sound of it.
