I ran into a similar problem when I wasn't paying attemption and had the 8th CD converted to WAV and filled my hard drive. I had to delete (actually backup .mozilla) .mozilla and then it started properly. Several of the files where severely hosed, literally, root could not delete. Cluster error --> Media corrupted, run fsck. Ran fsck -ext3, then could delete .mozilla, and the system is fine again. (well, haven't seen any more side affects to filling the HD up). Is there a .mldonkey directory? Have you run fsck?

If you didn't run mldonkey as root you 'should' be ok.Only root is allowed to fill up a ext2/3 file system by more than 95%.If the box boots without file system errors that won't be the problem.

yes, fsck -ext3, however, my filesystem WAS corrupted, and I was at 100% (well, I think 2400 bytes free). Before you try fsck, see if it can be fixed. If you have to, you boot into runlevel 1, single user or 'repair mode', then fsck your disk.

Try
locate mldonkey,
then go to that directory and then
./mldonkey
