wat is a good reliable peer 2 peer program... i know i have used kazaa on windows before... i was tempted to try to use wine with kazaa.. but i was wondering if there are any peer 2 peer programs that are linux based and are reliable fast and good. any suggestions?
Gtk-Gnutella, Limewire, Mutella, Phex and Qtella will all work in linux. These are on the Gnutella network along with BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, Swapper, and XoloX for windows so the speeds and the search results are alright but still, there not as good as kazaa.
Topologilinux has released version 3.1.0 which has many new features. You can run it under any version of Windows! Both NTFS and FAT filesystems are supported. You do not have to Partiition your drive. It will coexsist with XP on the NTFS partition.
This version now also includes the Alsa sound drivers which makes almost all soundcard work This distribution are based entirely on Slackware 9.0 with Gnome 2.2 Kde 3.1 and many other appz. Licq and Wine are included (a linux ICQ client and a program to run your Windows appz in) also.
Topologilinux is very easy to install just insert the cd when you are in XP windows and the installation starts automatically. Then you boot with the cd ISO you downloaded, and write "install" and press enter and install your Slack 9 system. Then your system is installed just insert this cd and press enter when you want to run
Go to the Download area and download or order a cd with Topologilinux 3.1.0 and enjoy!
(When you have installed Topologilinux and boot it up for the first time and are prompted to run setup.
Before you do that enter "cd .." then "setup")
i just dont understand the making the files like the windows, program files... and so on... is that really necessary? should i listen to the instructions and follow them on winehq.org b/c i read another wine tutorial which gives somewat different instructions than those on winehq.org... also has anybody successfully ran counterstrike on slackware 9.0? if so can they help me install wine and get counterstrike on it? Thnx.
the reason why wine sets up its directories like in windows, is because
windows software requires a windows-like environment; many dirs in
windows are obligatory; some can not be renamed without huge
problems.... but in short: yes it is necessary. just follow the instructions
on winehq.. as for counterstrike, check here.
