Installing xMule


Anyone knows how to install xMule?
The make install command does not work.

Another question: Anyone knows a program like Winamp to play all kinds of media, with an equalizer etc.?

Oi Khalinsar, tudo bem?

Welcome to LinuxQuestions.org. Well, I know that you can install xmule using apt-get/synaptic in Redhat. As I can see, you are using Conectiva, which uses apt-get/synaptic natively. Try typing:

apt-get install xmule

in any terminal, as root and see if it helps. As for Winamp like, your best shot is xmms. Chances are that it's already installed in your computer or shipped within Conectiva. Try typing

xmms

at the terminal and see if it's installed. If not, search into your Conectiva CD's. If you don't find, try getting from here:

http://www.xmms.org/

You can probably get it with apt-get too:

apt-get install xmms

as root. When reporting an error such "The make install command does not work", it's nearly impossible to make a diagnostic of where or what gone wrong. Please copy and paste the hole error message from your terminal.

Boa Sorte!!!

Obrigado !
xmms is installed already indeed and it seems very good. now I just have to figure out how to configure my sound card on Linux

here's the error:
make: *** Sem regra para processar o alvo `install'. Pare.
(something like "no rule to process the target 'install'. Stop")

Edit: I could not get xMule through apt-get nor Synaptic.

Cool

Lemme give ya some more advices:

- About xmms: it uses the same skins as Winamp 2 (not 3) so you can change it when it's start being boring.

- About soundcard: Redhat provides some tools for configuring sound cards. Again, I've never used Conectiva myself, but once it's/was based on Redhat, somethings might be the same. Try looking for "sndconfig". If you cannot find it's command, most likely you will need to find which sound card you have and which modules to load. If you have an 100% Sound Blaster card (even inbuilt) try:

su -
modprobe sb

NOTE: "su -" and not "su". If it works, cool. You just have to place a the line "modprobe sb" (without the quotes) at your

/etc/rc.d/rc.modules

If you don't have this file, look after /etc/rc.d/rc.local (this is Redhat's path).

- About xmule. Try upgrading apt-get:

apt-get update

apt-get upgrade

apt-get install xmule

If does not work, I'm not sure what your error is. Did you run ./configure before running make?

./configure
make && make install (as root)

Check this thread about installing programs too:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=45094

I've never installed xmule from source myself. So there's a slight possibility that you don't have to compile anything and that it's shipped as a precompiled package. Make sure to read the faq/readme files for it .
If still not working, try either an alternative such as edonkey 2000. It uses the very same protocols, met and temp files as xmule/emule and it's easy to install.

Good luck!

Thanks again, you've been very helpful

I couldn't update my apt-get. It seems some servers are offline or something.
"Falha ao obter ftp://ftp.conectiva.com/pub/conectiv...6/base/release Unable to fetch file, server said '/pub/conectiva/9/i386/base/release: Permission denied '
Falha ao obter ftp://ftp.nl.linux.org/pub/conectiva...6/base/release Could not connect to ftp.nl.linux.org:21 (131.211.28.48). - connect (111 Connection refused) [IP: 131.211.28.48 21]"

Another error occurred when I executed the command modprobe sb. The sndconfig worked fine But still the sound has a strange noise and it's too low. I have downloaded a driver for my sound card but I haven't figured out how to install it yet hehe

About xMule, another error when I executed the ./configure command:
"checking for C++ compiler default output... configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details."

ahhhh
