giFT?


Has anyone installed successfully giFT on Slackware?

There are a few threads on the forum, but they are more than a yr old and when trying to follow them, did not seem to work...

I've installed them like #2 stated and they work fine, but also installed xMule and tend to use it exclusively since it looks better and gives better results IMO.

I've got giFT packages if you would like to give them a try. Compiled on a Slack 10 box running Dropline Gnome, but they may still work on a default slack install.

giFT packages

Ok here are the gift tgz files that I have...

Code:
 
gift-0.11.8.1 tar 
giFT-FastTrack-0.8.9
giFTcurs-0.6.2
If reading this QUICKSTART file under gift, it says to install the plugins first, is this correct? The plugin would be the FastTrack...right...?

iv installed it on slackware 10.0 with gnome and im using the console UI. it all works perfectly apart from the fact i get no results. i turned my firewall off - no results. i redid the config file - nothing.

im sure all 3 networks combined should get loads of results for a keyword like "50" or "jazz" or "band"

whats going on!

'porn' is a better test word and you know it, Everyone knows it.

...anyway.. I used gift for a long time (core and frontends compiled manually, no apollon package deal)

but recently I actually tried mldonkey, it's great. it'll get you edonkey, which gift won't currently do, as well as most things you'd want, like fasttrack and gnutella.

there's another project called sharedaemon which is similar to both mldonkey and gift, but unfortunately is in fairly early stages of development.

there's the official edonkey command line client for linux as well..

I wouldn't consider using one that didn't separate the gui and core though.. ever since I started using gift and edonkeyclc remotely, I fell in love with the concept and I'm never going back.

dont worry i sorted it!

if any one else gets no results this was my solution:

i read the log file and it couldn't find the network components in /usr/lib
this is because i installed (defaultly) all my giFT components in /usr/local - bin share lib

so what you have to do (as root) is:

cp /usr/local/lib/*gift* /usr/lib
cp /usr/local/lib/giFT /usr/lib/giFT -r

and do the same for the /usr/local/share directory if you feel the need

and turn off your firewall if it dont work (probably a bad idea, but hey, i havn't got that much sensitive information on here!)

thats not expert advice - its just my advice, so try not to mess up ur system if you do any of them commands (it shouldn't tho)

but now iv got it working, it kicks ass!!!!

***BUMP***

Trying this again...

I've d/lo Apollon and installed from source, but I don't see where to start this, or if I have to install p2p plugins to make it work.

Can someone point me to some documentation on how to get this up and running?

thanks

tell you what... I have compiled Apollon and all available gift packages and made them up into nice little slackware packages, you are more than welcome to use them. It should save you some leg work, anyway I accept zero responsibility with these packages however, there are compiled for i686 and should work fine if your processor is a 686, I'm very confident they will work fine for you if you want to use them. If you do download them, download them into there own directory and install them like so "installpkg *.tgz" after there installed type "apollon" and you should be good to go. BTW sometime on first run it takes a while to get connected to servers, just be patient.

Do I need to backup and install the plugins first, and then Apollon?

What do I do about Apollon, uninstall and then reinstall?


The difficult part with this is that I haven't been able to find any decent and accurate howtos for this.

If I do get this to work, I'll be sure to post my steps.

No all you have to do is install those packages and you should be good to go, if you want a howto, I suppose I can type on, just let me know, im still working on a font howto that I plan to post in a day or so
