If none of the more specific forums is the right place to ask

ed2k client

Postby kp » 2006-03-07 15:45

in general question is "what ed2k client is best[ for sarge]?"

i tried to compile mldonkey from source but couldn't even configure it (freeze on building dependencies)

tried to install it from unstable tree but got a lot of dependencies errors, at least 3 packages currently in stable are to old to install mldonkey

so i give up...

i want to use mldonkey because it can be installed as pure server for GUI and if somebody know how to install it or some alternative please answer

when i ./configure sources of mldonkey it freezez with message:

Building dependencies (if it blocks, try 'make depend' to see the problem)

then i 'make depend' and it says:

I tools/zoggy -I +camlp4 -pp " pa_o.cmo pr_dump.cmo -loc loc" -a -o pa_zog.cma tools/zoggy/zog_types.ml tools/zoggy/zog_messages.ml tools/zoggy/zog_misc.ml tools/zoggy/pa_zog.ml
/bin/sh: line 1: I: command not found
make: [pa_zog.cma] Error 127 (ignored)
src/utils/lib/http_lexer.mll
make: execvp: src/utils/lib/http_lexer.mll: Permission denied
make: *** [src/utils/lib/http_lexer.ml] Error 127

I looked in a few pages about mldonkey that I found from google and some people reported it's buggy in sarge (someone mentioned this bug: #279030).

When I come across something like this, I usually give up because, no matter how we succeed in installing a tar file or even an rpm package that was turning into a debian package, we might experience another problem ahead. Not to mention that mixing stable, testing and unstable is a source of trouble too.

So, with regards mldonkey, I drop here... sorry. :(

If you are not interested in alternatives, don't read further, and let's wait for someone else to give you a hand.

I was looking into other p2p alternatives for you and, if you're interested, there's (1) that ed2k gui. In this page you can find a package for sarge. Also, (2) kmldonkey, which can be found in official sarge repositories (although I didn't understand something about a "server" that would demand mlonkey again, but perhaps that server is just in case you want to setup one for you. I might be wrong...). And (3), Apollon, which is also in official repositories. I use this one and works real good. But the thing here is if there's a specific p2p protocol that you want. I know that Apollon allows, at least, gnutella, openft and fasttrack (aka kazaa).
