Installing Apollon or other


I'm trying to install Apollon. Well Apollon or any really good file sharing program. I'm running Slack9.1 2.6.5 kernel with Dropline.

I downloaded Apollon and the newest installer and "sh apollon-dist.run" but I get

Warning: an error occured running qmake. Check the arkcomp-log file
Warning: an error occured running make. Check the arkcomp-log file

as regular user or root. So I found Apollon requires KDE libs. I downloaded kde libs 3.2.2 and ran ./configure but came up with

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.2) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!

so I'm guessing Qt must be installed?

If Qt must be installed what is the best way to install it and can someone give me a link to the bzip to download? Also is there an easier/better way to install Apollon or a better file sharing program?

Just to make sure you know, Apollon is not by itself a filesharing app. It's a front end for giFT. Make sure you have that installed first otherwise Apollon will just do nothing. This has nothing to do with your compiling (of Apollon and KDE libs) problems, mind you. I've never used Apollon myself but let me suggest another frontend called giFTcurs. It's ncurses based and not as pretty as the other clients. This admittedly can be a turn off and was initially for me. It is, however, without question the best client out there that I've come across regardless of the platform. Another fine feature of this client is that it's much easier to compile as it relies on much fewer libraries. In fact, a compile may be entirely unnecessary since there are more precompiled binaries of this client floating around than there are of Apollon.

I hope all that helps. I concede I did nothing to help you with your compilation problems but I have given you a possible way around them.

...........and if you don't have luck with Apollon (I had similar problems, but they "just worked out" when I last installed my OS), try mlDonkey - it'll connect to the same networks as giFT and you also get to troll the eDonkey network too. Good luck.

Now, I believe that apollon has an all-in-one installer (along with the source) that will do it all for you. The source still requires a pre-existing giFT build (and the plug-ins) but the all-in-one is supposed to do all of that for you.

The all-in-one installer is supposed to take care of everything. I had giFTcurs before but didn't really like it. Plus for some reason kazaalite ALWAYS had a lot more hits than giFTcurs.

But back on topic can someone help me out?

What's the distro you're running?

Well both Apollon and giFTcurs both use giFT so Apollon will get as many hits as giFTcurs.

You'll need Qt for sure. What do you normally use for installing? Swaret? Slapt-get? Source installs? There should likely be a slackpack in any mirror. Here's one I got by googling "slackware 9.1 Qt": http://www.maxtux.co.uk/dist/slackwa...2.1-i486-1.tgz

That may do it. I don't know if Qt has any deps...
I'm still learning my way around in Slack, so my distro-specific help will be limited (and Crux has caught my eye a bit more for now)
