Question about the giFT basic install.


i got to the ./configure stage on the basic giFT daemon from source install.
and it wrote this text:

--------- meta data tools ---

use libvorbis...........: yes
use ImageMagick.........: no
use libmagic............: no

-----------------------------

giftd will be installed in /usr/local/bin

*** WARNING ***

This distribution does not include a client or a network plugin!
giFT will fail to provide any useful functionality without both.

*** WARNING ***

does it have a negative meaning? is it something wrong there or everything is OK and prepared for the install?
because i tryed to install a GUI and it didn't found the basic giFT...

Well, giFT is just the daemon, and that message is OK, since is just a warning, not an error message. Indeed, you must have a GUI to handle the conections, are you trying to install it from a rpm? what worked for me it was to compile the GUI (Apollon) because its rpm couldn't find gift which was already installed.

Hope this helps

One step forward.
ok first thing - no RPM's - just source installation.
second thing - i've managed to load Apollon, but, it displays this message on the "Info" Tab:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Connection error
The giFT daemon, which is responsible for connecting to the various networks, appears to be down and I don't seem to able to start it.
Unfortunately, this can have several causes. Here are a few things you might want to give a try:
Your giFT installation is corrupted. Try starting giFT manually by typing "giFT" on the command line. If this gives errors, there's probably some internal error in giFT or in your giFT configuration. Refer to the giFT homepage at http://giftproject.org for help.
Maybe giFT is running but rejects our connections because we're not in the allowed hosts list. If this is the case, open your ~/.giFT/giftd.conf file and edit the hosts_allow variable so that we are an allowed host.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

now look at my 'giftd.conf' file:

###############################################################################
# MAIN

[main]

#
# Boolean determining whether or not this file has been reviewed and is
# complete. giFT will fail to start unless this is non-zero. This is done
# so that we can make sure you, at the very least, read through this file.
#
# Default: 0
#
setup = 1

#
# Space separated list of hosts to allow connection to giFT's interface
# protocol (running default on port 1213). This protocol is used for GUIs
# to communicate with giFT and could be considered a security risk to allow
# external connections.
#
# The following special keywords are supported:
#
# ALL - synonym for 0.0.0.0/0
# LOCAL - synonym for 127.0.0.0/8 192.168.0.0/16 172.0.0.0/11 10.0.0.0/8
#
# Bitwidth fields are optional
#
# Default: LOCAL
#
hosts_allow = ALL

#
# Port on which to listen for user interface connections. Unless you have a
# special need to talk to the client on a non-standard port, just accept the
# default.
#
# NOTE:
# If you change this value, you will also need to modify the ui.conf
# configuration for the machine which will be making outgoing connections
# here.
#
client_port = 1213

#
# Determines whether or not to follow symbolic links. If this value is set
# non-zero, symlinks will be traversed and a directory inode tracking system
# will be used to ensure that giFT does not descend the same directory
# twice. If you do not have any symlinks or do not want them traversed, set
# this to 0 for a very minor efficiency gain.
#
# Windows users: this setting has no effect.
#
# Default: 1
#
follow_symlinks = 1

#
# Colon separated list of protocol plugins to load by default. If dynamic
# library support is enabled, the plugin specified will be stat'd to check if
# it is a loadable path. If that fails, the fallback method is to attempt to
# construct the fully qualified path based on the configured environment.
#
# NOTES:
# Without dynamic library support, this plugin must have been compiled into
# your giFT binary. With, this plugin must exist in the installed
# plugin directory. giFT -V will output this path to you, if you are not
# sure.
#
# Protocol names are case sensitive, so use OpenFT, not Openft.
#
# For example, to use the OpenFT and Gnutella protocols use:
#
# OpenFT:Gnutella
#
# Default: none
#
plugins = OpenFT:Gnutella:FastTrack

###############################################################################
# DOWNLOAD CONTROLS

[download]

#
# Directory to store transfers while they are being operated on. Temporary
# state files are also kept here. It is recommended, but not required, that
# the incoming and completed directories are on the same partition (drive).
#
# Windows users: please use the following path specification:
#
# incoming=/[drive]/dir1/dir2
#
# For example, to refer to C:\Program Files\giFT\incoming, use:
#
# incoming=/C/Program Files/giFT/incoming
#
# Default (*nix): ~/.giFT/incoming
# Default (Windows): /C/Program Files/giFT/incoming
#
incoming = ~/.giFT/incoming

#
# Directory which will contain files after they have successfully finished
# downloading.
#
# Default (*nix): ~/.giFT/completed
# Default (Windows): /C/Program Files/giFT/completed
#
completed = ~/.giFT/completed

###############################################################################
# SHARE SUBMISSION AND UPLOAD CONTROL

[sharing]

#
# Maximum amount of uploads allowed from the same user at any given time. It
# is recommended that you keep this at 1 in order to prevent users from
# unfairly queueing your connection.
#
# Default: 1
#
max_peruser_uploads = 1

#
# Determines whether or not to hide directories which contain a leading dot.
# These directories are commonly meant to be "hidden" and thus should not be
# submitted to the network. Selecting 0 here will submit all directories.
#
# Default: 1
#
hide_dot_files = 1

#
# Colon separated list of fully qualified paths you wish to share. These
# directories will be recursed at giFT's startup and the files contained
# within will be subjected to an MD5 hashing. The results will be cached and
# will only be recalculated on a per share basis when the size or
# modification time in the cache and on disk disagree, or the file name is
# changed.
#
# Sanity notice:
# Do NOT share source directories! Remote nodes will refuse to index your
# shares if you are attempting to submit more than 64000 files.
#
# Security notice:
# Do not share directories which may contain sensitive information, such as
# ~ ($HOME). Also note that any directories shared here will be stripped of
# all but the last path element when submitted to other nodes for indexing,
# effectively "hiding" the directory prefix.
#
# Windows users: please use the following path specification:
#
# /[drive]/dir1/dir2:/[drive]/dir3/dir4 ...
#
# For example, to refer to C:\Program Files\giFT\shares and D:\shares, use:
#
# /C/Program Files/giFT/shares:/D/shares
#
# Default: none
#
root = /home/suse/.giFT/completed

#
# Maximum amount of simultaneous uploads allowed. Setting this to -1 will
# cause giFT to not limit outgoing transfers. 0 effectively disables sharing.
# This may also be handled at run time via your GUI of choice.
#
# Default: -1
#
max_uploads = 2

#
# Controls when giFT periodically rescans your shared directories for any
# changes (new files, missing files, changed files, etc.) and communicates
# those changes to the underlying protocols. This parameter specifies how
# often (in seconds) you want that to happen.
#
# For your reference
# ==================
# 0 turns off periodic auto-resync
# 3600 one hour
# 86400 one day
# 604800 one week
#
# Default: 86400
#
auto_resync_interval = 86400

#
# Controls whether or not giFT should automatically share files that you have
# finished downloading. This feature significantly improves the network's
# abundance of files and helps ease the load on those sharing popular files.
# It's a Good Thing (TM), please leave it on.
#
# Avoid setting your completed directories through sharing/root, as that
# setting will duplicate recursion of the completed directory and cause
# generally undesirable results.
#
# Default: 1
#
share_completed = 1

###############################################################################
# USER SPACE BANDWIDTH CONTROL

[bandwidth]

#
# Bandwidth throttling allows giFT to have some basic control over your
# bandwidth usage. This code operates in user space, and as a result can not
# guarantee perfect accuracy. If you wish to use this feature, please
# consider using a more reliable kernel space option first. As always, google
# should be able to assist you there.
#
# The following configuration switches control the maximum number of bytes
# per second allowed for the given stream direction. A setting of 0 will
# disable throttling for that direction.
#
# Default: 0
#
downstream = 0
upstream = 0

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
can you try to tell me what is wrong?
many many thanks.

Alright. First of all have you compiled the plugin as well?? if you did so, go to Apollon and in the configuration menu, disable or delete the plugins you have there, supplied by default, and load the ones you just compiled (they would show up when you click on the 'add' button) make sure you try one plugin at a time. save changes, quit, and reopen Apollon

Cheers!!
