did you set it up properly ?
kazaa lite instructions
and here is links to tonnes of p2p apps
kazaa really isn't worth running through wine when there are hundreds of p2p clients for linux....if you look through the list of clients you'll even see that some clients connect to the kazaa network, which even shows more so why it is pointless to run kazaa with wine....

I use giftcurs. It's got the fasttrack, openft and gnutella plugins. People get turned off by the ncurses based gui but it's the best one around for gift.

Nakkaya, which gui do you use for mldonkey? I remember I tried installing it once and I didn't much like the default interface.

Hi nakkaya!!!

I've tried to use mldonkey. I've downloaded the bunzip2 for i386, then I've run ./mlgui

The gui starts fine, but at the console, I get an constant error message like this:

Exception Write Failed: Connection refused in connecting

Does anybody has any idea what this means? The idea of mldonkey is great though, but I'm still about to see it in action

Thanks in advance

isn't it that p2p (under any os) has the risk of unwanted intrusion in your system?

Bah, with the RIAA sniffing everyone's ports, I wouldn't advise using Kazaa to even browse what's available. I would stick with the gnutella network. Try GTK-gnutella, I've had great luck with it.

Yes, I did forum search.


[root@localhost mike]# rpm -qa | grep wine
wine-20030813-1rh8winehq

Does it mean that wine is installed? Than when I try to run kmd I get the error message:

[root@localhost mike]# ./kmd.exe
Segmentation fault


Any ideas why its happened?

thanks

You have to start kdm.exe using wine, not just via the shell. Yes wine is installed.
