Linux and eBay


I like posting stuff on eBay. Since I have switched to linux I have not been able to use selling manager. Is there any alternative programs for this? Also I am looking for an auction terminator that will end an auction near the end of it if it is not going for a set amount. Has anyone ever seen a program like this?

The jade program looks cool but I think there are some bugs. I was trying it out and got into the program. But when it trys to connect to the server it spikes my CUP usage to 100%. Also it just pretty much locks up at that point. I have to close the program down. The alpha version will not make install either. There is an error. My friend also tried the installation and received the same message.

I was using this program and it seems to have a bug. Does this happen for other people or is something I am doing wrong?

Try searching e-bay on freshmeat. I just did and came up with 16 different programs, 7 of which I think would help you. Freshmeat is a great site to go to if you want to find GNU programs. You should go to this site first and see if there are any programs listed that can solve your problem. http://freshmeat.net
