Set up your URPMI sources correctly.

Once done go to "INSTALL SOFTWARE".

This opens up RPMDrake.

Find the Internet catagory and you'll find a slew of new applications available which will do what you want.

Download mldonkey and if you use KDE download kmldonkey as well. To start mldonkey you need to start

1) go to Mandrake Control Center
2) select System
3) select Services
4) go to mldonkey and click on start

To shut it down do the same but on step 4 select stop. Once it's running start kmldonkey.

Okay kid, did you try what opjose suggested? Instead of whining about a core he didn't mention, why don't you take his advice? If it doesn't work, post some error messages so we can help you out.

Sounds like it won't connect to the core server. Make sure you are using the right ports. They might be in the help file, and no, I do not know the ports. Try the documentation first.

Make sure that "mldonkey-init" is installed (which I think it is already installed) and follow the steps I posted above, then start mldonkey-gui or kmldonkey (these are two seperate applications so try both and see which one you prefer, they both work fine with Mldonkey). You have to do it every time you want to run it.

No truer words....

Actually since he gets an everything installed, he may have not read the docs and started nor configured the service...

Like before dude, chill out and keep your fingers under control when using a keyboard. It's hard to understand what you're typing. Have you got the right ports set up? Check the documentation to make sure. In fact, I bet if you sat down for 20 minutes to read it, your problems would be solved. If not, come back with specifics on what you tried, what part of the documentation you don't understand, or whatever else seems to be the problem. And calm down when typing too.

I do not see what is worng with my typing but lets not go into that. Anyway. The first thing I did was try to find the documentation. I failed at that. I went to help then hand book and it said No handbook found or something like that. I guess I need to find it and install it do I?
