We are not mindreaders nor have crystal balls which permit us to peer into your computer.

To help you we need detailed information and specific questions from YOU.

"HOW DO I GET LIMEWIRE running?" is a "GENERAL" question, and is already addressed by the documentation which is included with it.

If you have a problem post the exact point where in the documentation falls short, any and all errors, etc.


e.g.

"At the point I type

urpmi

I see

#Bash: Command not found

What does this mean?
"

The above is a specific question with a clear logic trail.




We can't do the work for you. Rather all we can do is point you in the right direction when something is going wrong, provided we know exactly where you are in the process.

Thus far the posts you have put up have been so non-specific that we usually don't have a clue as to what you are talking about.

Spacing, punctuation, and spelling are not great requirements around here, but making somewhat organized statements makes you easier to comprehend.

Don't make everything one long run on paragraph. This will permit us to try to follow whatever logic you are applying, if any (heh).

Ok I'l try to be more clear. I'l do point by point.

1. I start up KMLDonkey
2. I go into the menu and go connect to core.
3. It says "connecting to core......" for a second.
4. Then it says "Dissconnected".
5. then it repeats numbers 3 and 4.

But Before it wounld even do that. It said please locate core on and on. But I fixed that. By;

1. Downloading mldonkey-core I believe it was calleed.

Ok so you followed the included directions.

You should have downloaded a file that ended in .gz

A .gz file needs to be unpacked.

First make a new folder...

open a console and type

mkdir ~/mldonkey_core
(the above makes a new directory)

cp mlnet*.* ~/mldonkey_core
(the above copies the downloaded mlnet*.* files to the new directory)

cd ~/mldonkey_core
(the above moves you to the new directory)

gunzip mlnet*.gz
(the above unpacks the downloaded file, I don't remember it's exact name...)

chmod 755 mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin
(the above changes the unpacked file to make it executable, note I don't know it's name..)

./mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin
(the above "runs" the file you just modified the perms for...)

Now you should see a status display appear, with a bunch of lines about mlnet...

NOW run mldonkey and try to connect to the core.

Since you started it in the above step, you should be able to connect from the gui.

I copied and pasted everything you put. this is what I got.
[administrator@MTS administrator]$ su
Password:
[root@MTS administrator]# mkdir ~/mldonkey_core
mkdir: cannot create directory `/root/mldonkey_core': File exists
[root@MTS administrator]# cp mlnet*.* ~/mldonkey_core
cp: cannot stat `mlnet*.*': No such file or directory
[root@MTS administrator]# cd ~/mldonkey_core
[root@MTS mldonkey_core]# gunzip mlnet*.gz
mlnet*.gz: No such file or directory
[root@MTS mldonkey_core]# chmod 755 mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin
chmod: cannot access `mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin': No such file or directory
[root@MTS mldonkey_core]# ./mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin
bash: ./mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin: No such file or directory
[root@MTS mldonkey_core]#

I don't think it worked. Also I wasnt sure if I put the name of the file or name_of_file . I put the second because that is what you had. Sorry If I was wrong.

[root@MTS administrator]# mkdir ~/mldonkey_core

mkdir: cannot create directory `/root/mldonkey_core': File exists

(You tell me, what does the above mean?)


[root@MTS administrator]# cp mlnet*.* ~/mldonkey_core
cp: cannot stat `mlnet*.*': No such file or directory

(Again, what does this mean? C'mon, help YOURSELF, don't try to make others do the work for you...)

[root@MTS mldonkey_core]# chmod 755 mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin
chmod: cannot access `mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin': No such file or directory

(Oh c'mon!!!!

couldn't you take the hint?

"fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step"... )

[root@MTS mldonkey_core]# ./mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin
bash: ./mlnet_fileyouunpacked_in_the_above_step.bin: No such file or directory
[root@MTS mldonkey_core]#


Sigh...

There's this joke about the computer tech that got a call from a guy with a blank screen...
