apollon ALL IN ONE crash


OS - Redhat 9
App - Apollon (all-in-one) from
File :


ran file sh in terminal.

installation installed gift, gift-fast track, gift-gnutella
but when it started to install the Apollon package it came to 20% of the installation and an ERROR occurs, informing me to view the log file. Once the View Log File button is click on the whole system crashes.

I find this to be very strange, this is the second third attempt to install Apollon. Previously I used the manual files that where available at

and installed the packages individually but required a and for giftOpenft. then I tried the All-In-One packaged which gave me the same ERROR. SO I thought that it could be the previous packages that were conflicting with the ALL-IN-ONE so call me nuts I re-installed RedHat 9. Once installed I repeated the All-In-One package installation, which believe it or not gave me the same Error.

So as you can see I'm starting to think that there may not be another way around the issue, while others have stated that they had no problem with the installation.

All I really want is to be able to read the Log File, can anyone please help a fighting sole.

Hi its me again,

i was thinking if anyone would be able to tell me if there are any other dependences that apollon needs besides gift, gift-gunutella, gift-fasttrack ext..

It may be possible that i have not installed all the apps that apollon needs, like the libs.
If so what libs are the latest that i can use, most of the documentation refers to old libs that cannot be found through sources.

Thanks for your time.

Ok, can someone shot me now!

Ok the problem was that i needed to install Apollon as non-root, daa.

Oh and i used the Add/Remove App that is provided by RH9 and installed all the KDE apps that i could find from the installation CD's. This fixed the "Qt >" thing and some other libs that was needed.

Moving forward :

now that i have Apollon installed, i requested that it creates the shortcut on my desktop, which it did not.
i tried to locate the folder that was installed in the directory /home/<username> and could not locate it.

Where and what is the name of the Apollon folder that Apollon installer uses, so i can make a launcher to start it?

Well, im not going to say that you guys helped a lot, but thanks to the people that complete their threads and give solutions to the problems.

I have finally got apollon to run, here are some tips on how to go about it.

1. make sure you in a non-root account

2. I tried to use the All-In-One package but that never got me anywhere, I couldn't even locate the directory that it was installed in.

3. You will need several apps to complete the installation like gcc, Qt, ext.. the best way to solve this is to use the distribution CD's and install all the development packages that you can find, as well as anything to do with KDE, if all fails just install everything, you may need something for a different package.

4. Apollon requires GiFT, FastTrack, Gnutella which you will find here thats if you are NOT using the ALL-IN-ONE. NB! keep in-mind that things keep changing and that you may need to download a different set of giFT packages in time, refer to the README files in apollon packages they will give you the links for the plugins, dont worry to much on what the webpages have to offer they might confuse you.

5. And remember to do "gift-setup" and make sure you set the first option to "1", also take note of where you are downloading your stuff, if you need to make a new folder, so you know were to find it then do it. i used ~/download and created a new folder in my home dir. One last thing, if you include other plugins like FastTrack you will need to do it here, type Gnutelle:OpenFT:FastTrack to initialize it.

6. to install Apollon you will need to switch to root, you can do this with "su" and type in the password using the terminal.

7. Thats about it, remember to breath!

8. Those you have read the whole Web-Strick thing please tell others about it, this is yet another reason why we need to fight together

lol well done mate.. atleast you didnt give up.. I was going to untill i read this thread.
I also tried that all in one package, similary problem with the log file but it installed ok.. THe only problem was it was not connecting to OpenFT and didnt show any other networks. ALL IN ONE bs.

I'm using redhat 9 also. but i installed evertrying in the package. I still dont know which way to go about it.. You obviously reinstalled everything after a format right? I cant aford to backup and format.. HOw do i get ride of the ALL IN ONE bs?

I will try your way after i get ride of the previous install. "wuold you like to create a shared folder on your desktop? and an uninstaller shortcut?" ..... yes.......

where is it?

damn gay ass program

If you're not concerned with the log, the all-in-one works pretty well. You may need to restart after installing it to get it to communicate with Konqueror.

It really does install everything, but I have also found that Open-FT doesn't connect. You can find the Fast-Track and Gnutella plugins in Settings => Configure Apollon. Then go click the 'Advanced' tab. Click 'Add'. The .so files it wants are in /usr/lib/giFT/.

From one n00b to another,
