finally got something

Well I finally got around to downloading qtella (rpm) and installing it. No problems. It looks very similar to limewire back when i used limewire under windoze.
Anyway, it appears to be trying to connect to the hosts, but it just sits there forever saying "Connecting...".

I did a search in for gnutella hosts and entered some of them in the "auto connect" host list in the configuration window.

Anyone here use qtella? What else do I need to do?

qtella sounds like a good program to use. Let me download that quick.

got it working OK

got qtella working ok. I am spoiled on the windoze file sharing programs, such as morpheus, audiognome, audiogalaxy, etc.

I like to see the bitrates of songs before I waste time downloading them.
With qtella, you don't know what you are getting.

Wish there was a better sharing prog for linux. I'll try a couple of others that have been mentioned in these posts.
