File sharing in Linux...


Hello again, I was wondering if there was a popular file sharing program for Linux along the lines of Kazaa?

Even better, is there a version of kazaa for Linux?

Thanks!

Jon

See http://gtk-gnutella.sourceforge.net/

It connects to multiple servers, not sure, but i think it connects to the kazaa network as one of them...

Thanks for the link to the Gnutella program. One problem with it though... I tried to install it, and it told me that I could not install the file because I was missing

libexpat.so.1

Do you happen to know anything about that? Thanks!

I'm sorry, I'm brand new to Linux. I'm struggling to even get myself around here. I'll try searching next time.

as for the libexpat.so.1, try going into your package installer program for your distro and see if it is on your install cd's

if not, just browse the web for that specific file and download whatever package contains it

lol, i have the same problem, i cannot find that package anywhere !

there are thousands of packages that have libexpat.so.0 but that aparently is not good enough.

its some part os an XML parser, and the homepage at source forge has no download links

if any1 else has found the name of a package that provides this file i would be greatful, thankyou.

Do you use an RPM based distro? If so just go to www.rpmfind.net, search for the file you want and it will tell which package the file is packaged with. After downloading just type - 'rpm -U packagename' in the same directory as the package.

Hope this helps!

I believe the gtk-gnutella devs are using Mandrake, and therefore use libexpat.so.1 . I use Redhat 9, and I don't have libexpat.so.1 . However, I do see /usr/lib/libexpat.so.0 .

To fix this issue, I created a symlink from libexpat.so.1 to libexpat.so.0 , like this:

host[/usr/lib]# su
host[/usr/lib]# cd /usr/lib
host[/usr/lib]# ln -s libexpat.so.0 libexpat.so.1
host[/usr/lib]# ls -l libexpat.so.0 libexpat.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Apr 16 11:21 libexpat.so.0 -> libexpat.so.0.4.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Sep 6 09:51 libexpat.so.1 -> libexpat.so.0


Note that libexpat.so.0 is actually a symlink to libexpat.so.0.4.0 , but I decided to link libexpat.so.1 to libexpat.so.0 instead of libexpat.so.0.4.0 because I think it's more proper.

And then I updated gtk-gnutella with a "rpm -Uvh --nodeps GTK2-gtk-gnutella-0.92.1-0.i386.rpm".

gtk-gnutella seems to work now.

I spoke too soon. gtk-gnutella is constantly crashing on me now.

I reported the missing libexpat.so.1 as a bug here on the gtk-gnutella bug page, here:

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index...67&atid=104467


When I try the workaround mentioned in the previous post, gtk-gnutella crashes frequently.

Upon startup, I get this:
% gtk-gnutella
Incorrectly built binary which accesses errno, h_errno or _res directly. Needs to be fixed.

When it crashes, I get this:

gtk-gnutella: Fatal IO error 0 (Success) on X server :0.0.
