databases generally suck in linux and the ones that can be good are usually a royal pita to install.

the best overall one I have seen is Limewire, it's not that bad to install and the database is better than a lot of the others.

see the link below on the software page for install instructions.

Limewire? Are you serious? It's one of the biggest system hogs as well as returns just as many results as gtk-gnutella...

I'd have to disagree. I'd say look at mldonkey, giFT, xmule... Anything BUT Limewire... Just my NSHO..

I vote to stay away from Limewire as well, its a hog, tends to be harder to install compared to most others...
