    Unhappy ancient version error gtk-gnutella


    Installed gtk-gnutella RPM fine... Can't run it. From console says: "*** ANCIENT VERSION DETECTED! ***

    Sorry, this program is too ancient to run without
    an explicit user action: If it's not possible to upgrade
    you may edit the file

    /home/sickparasite/.gtk-gnutella/config_gnet

    and set the variable "ancient_version_force" to
    "gtk-gnutella/0.96.1 (2006-02-22; GTK2; Linux x86_64)".

    You will then be able to run this version forever, but
    please consider upgrading, as Gnutella is an evolving
    network in which ancient software is less useful or even
    harmful!

    *** EXITING ***
    "

    So i edited the file to say " ancient_version_force = "gtk-gnutella/0.96.1 (2006-02-22; GTK2; Linux x86_64)" the file stays this way until i try to run the program it automatically takes "gtk-gnutella/0.96.1 (2006-02-22; GTK2; Linux x86_64)" out and is blank again. Tried deleting the original file and replacing it but to no avail - it still changes back.

    What would cause this and what can be done about it?

    You might want to find a more up-to-date version of gnutella and install that? Where did you get that old version from?
