I found that installing from source was the solution to my problems, just took a few seconds and it has been working fine.

Ok I've been trying to get giFT working all night and I'm totally stumped. I'm running Debian sarge. I used apt-get install and got it and all it's dependencies fine. I set it up correctly. But whenever I run Apollon, giftUI, or Gnutella it doesn't connect me! So I read the giFT documentation and tried playing around with the daemon. Here's what I did:

Code:
tyler@localhost:~/.giFT/Gnutella$ killall -TERM giftd
tyler@localhost:~/.giFT/Gnutella$ ps axu | grep gift
tyler    16655  0.0  0.0  3624  572 pts/10   S+   20:40   0:00 grep gift
tyler@localhost:~/.giFT/Gnutella$ giftd -d
[20:40:32] giFT: 16657
tyler@localhost:~/.giFT/Gnutella$ ps axu | grep gift
tyler    16657  1.3  0.2  4516 2356 ?        Ss   20:40   0:00 giftd -d
tyler    16660  0.0  0.0  3624  568 pts/10   R+   20:40   0:00 grep gift
tyler@localhost:~/.giFT/Gnutella$ giftd -V
giftd 0.11.6 (Built Fri May 14 07:05:45 CEST 2004)

[20:40:44] *** GIFT-ERROR: bind: Address already in use
[20:40:44] *** GIFT-FATAL: Failed to load interface subsystem

NOTE:
There may be another giFT daemon running on this host.  Check to see if the
interface port (1213) is currently in use by another process.

tyler@localhost:~/.giFT/Gnutella$
I checked and it seems like nothing is using port 1213 (as far as I can tell). What on earth is wrong here? Please help
