    LimeWire or anything similar


    I've downloaded and install LimeWire on my RH 9.1 box. Well, for some reason every directory I select to try to share so I can download my files to won't work. And, I don't know if I can uninstall LimeWire and start over again or not. Can anyone give me some ideas on other good P2P programs?

    u could use apollon which is a p2p program than connects to OpenFT, Gnutella, FastTrack (Kazaa)
    go to : http://apollon.sourceforge.net/files.html
    and download the all-in-one installer (apollon-dist.tar.bz2)
    then untar it using ark or any other way u like
    to install it just open a console and go to the place where u extracted it and type
    ./install.sh

    I downloaded the tar.gz because I've never extracted a bz2 file before. I tried ./install.sh but it didn't work so I dunno.

    u uncompress it either by typing :
    tar xvjf filename.tar.bz2

    or by using a program like ark
    or if ur using kde just simply open it and copy its content to another folder

    Well, I got the bz2 file extracted by:
    Code:
    [tristan@localhost tmp]$ tar -jxf apollon-0.9.3-2.tar.bz2
    [tristan@localhost tmp]$ cd apollon-0.9.3
    [tristan@localhost apollon-0.9.3]$ ./install.sh
    bash: ./install.sh: No such file or directory
    Any ideas?

    yeah u downloaded the wrong file
    download the All-in-one installer since it got apollon and its plugins and its very easy to install

    Code:
    apollon-dist-0.2.1.run
    That's the only file I can find as the all-in-one installer. The only bz2 file is a source file.
