Can anyone suggest any good P2P clients which aren't too tough to install with FC. I've tried everything I've come across, but my computer doesn't seem to have the libraries ...

    P2P


    Can anyone suggest any good P2P clients which aren't too tough to install with FC. I've tried everything I've come across, but my computer doesn't seem to have the libraries to do it.

    I've heard good things about LimeWire. I can't really help you much though since I don't use P2P...

    The one that gives me the least trouble is GTK-Gnutella.

    Limewire is, IMHO, the best P2P software that has ever existed.

    i'ld suggest using torrent, instead of others.
    You can use either the original client (uses python) , or another nice client azureus (uses java).
    Have a nice day

    it took a while but i got gift to work. the main trason i couldnt get it to work is because i did it all manualy. its just easier to get "get-apt" and download apollon or giftui, depending on if your using kde or gnome respectivly. it should ask you if you want to download necissary dipendancies and you just say yes. all you need to do then is go to the gift website and find the file names for the openFT, gnutella, and fastrack plugins. use get-apt to install those. then type:

    gift-setup

    and this should startup a program that willl do a step by step proccess of asking you what to do for each configuration. just read through carfully and answer the best you can.

    thats all i can remember for it. actualy seems far more basic once you eliminate all the extra crap i did that lead to nuthing.

    GTK and LimeWire are both good, but I've had much better luck with LimeWire, after finding the dependancies that is ,...Edonkey, i think thats what its called, may be worth a try as well.
