    p2p software...where do i get it


    ok i am trying to downlod somekind of p2p software for my brand new mandrake 10.0 linux system.

    i did a search...i came up with limewire
    i*blah blah*

    iso after i configured it ...and did the make..i made sure i was a root...and typed in make install..and it said something llike (i dont know it was a few hours ago ..i will run it again if u need to know)

    so i did another seach and came up with qtella
    blah blah
    i configured...make...make install....WOW IT INSALLED
    ii ran it ...and pressed the connect button...nothing happend and it crashed..

    needless to say..i cant find a p2p program that works-properly...i dont know if i am doing something wrong or not.....

    can u tell me what u use and if use the programs liste here can u tell me how u installed them / ran them..i have wine and i read somewhere during my search that u can configure kazaa to work with wine

    (i know i didn't describe it very good)

    ok 1 try searching google its a pretty good rule to follow before posting any thing here casue you can get an answer quicker or try the site search top right hand corner but i'd search or i'd say get either kazaa k++ or kazaa lite dont run anything else or the riaa is tracking you and use wine to run them try that and let me know how that works out for yah

    I used to use SoulSeek. It requires wxPython, but it's not too hard to install them. http://www.sensi.org/~ak/pyslsk/ has links to everything you need, enjoy!

    Read my post on P2P file transfers in:

    Linux Forums Dot Org Index -> Gaming/Games/Multimedia/Entertainment -> P2P on linux

    I think that might help ya out and other new users who see this.
