Have you tried executing it from a terminal to see what error messages it throws?

*** ANCIENT VERSION DETECTED! ***

Sorry, this program is too ancient to run without
an explicit user action: If it's not possible to upgrade
you may edit the file

/home/addiegoodvibes/.gtk-gnutella/config_gnet

and set the variable "ancient_version_force" to
"gtk-gnutella/0.96.3-12293 (2006-11-09; GTK2; Linux i686)".

You will then be able to run this version forever, but
please consider upgrading, as Gnutella is an evolving
network in which ancient software is less useful or even
harmful!

*** EXITING ***

I already did what it said & edited the config file to
Quote:
ancient_version_force = gtk-gnutella/0.96.3-12293 (2006-11-09; GTK2; Linux i686)
then ran KTG-GNutella and got the same error

there is no current rpm version even through PFL....
