I don't know about Mandrake, but in Slackware there's a file on the install disk called MANIFEST.gz which lists every file in every package on the disk. So whenever I get a message that such and such file can't be found, I search for it there first. For Slack, the file ltdl.h is in a package called libtool-1.4.3-i386-1.tgz, hopefully there is a similar rpm for Mandrake.

BTW there's another file on the install disk called FILE_LIST which only lists all the packages, so it's not nearly as useful.

Enjoy!

good timing
i was tryign to run it, and it saids something like " Can't connect to the daemon at 127.0.0.1:1213, is giFT running?"

by the way, i reckon the 'gift-setup' is quite confusing.

Luddite - yes you are missing dependancies. you can also try tracking each one down here:

rpmfind.net and freshmeat.org

The config files for giFT are in ~/.giFT/

You gotta start reading the documentation, duff ;-)

Enjoy!

i keep getting:

*** GIFT-FATAL: couldn't load protocol in file /usr/lib/giFT/libOpenFT.la: file not found
*** Often times more information can be found in the log file or with the -v command line switch.

iv installed this about 10,000 times & tried sooooo many different daemons.

any ideas?

You have to install the OpenFT plugin.

The following is from the giFT QUICKSTART file (really helps to read files like README, INSTALL, etc.):
Quote:
First you should download and install the plugins you wish to load through
giftd. No plugins come default (this is changed behaviour from pre-0.11.2),
so you will need to be sure to download at least one independent of this
distribution.
Go back to the giFT website and find the plugins (OpenFT, Gnutella). And while you're reading the documentation, pay attention to this bit:
Quote:
If you are wondering where the FastTrack plugin is, it is not a part of our
standard distribution and is in fact a separately maintained project that
works with giFT. See http://developer.berlios.de/projects/gift-fasttrack for
more information on how to obtain the plugin. Be sure to submit any bugs
specific to the FastTrack plugin to the appropriate developers.
The FastTrack plugin connects you to the network that is used by Kazaa, so you don't want to leave that one out.

If you've already installed the OpenFT plugin and you're getting this message, try running /sbin/ldconfig (as root).

Enjoy!

For Slack users, there are a nice bunch of giFT packages for Slack 10 at slackcare.com. Work like a charm.

Someone asked about Apollon. Apollon will run giftd for you, so you don't have to start it manually.

To use giFT, you have to read what gift-setup prompts for - there is a trick question in it - and remember what you have in your firewalls and /etc/hosts.(deny|allow)

I followed your instructions, and everything seems to have installed well, but when I run giftd I get this:

giftd: error while loading shared libraries: libgift.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

sorry for the very extended delay.
try installing the libgift [it's the gift library]
If running Mandrake and you have your urpmi package manager sorted out [google for "easy urpmi"] then just try
Code:
urpmi exact_package_name
or 
urpmi libgift
that will install dependancies too.
Debian has the apt-get manager with similair features.
