Have you checked if giftd is running? You might also want to double-check your giftd configuration.

This app is awsome. It's nice and clean and the search results are not as bad as previous people have reported. I would say it's actually faster than gnutella.

The installation was pretty straight-forward, with the only problem being that my suse Linux 9.0 pro did not come with pkg-config. After I installed pkg-config, the install went smooth.

Thanks for this app and keep up the good work.

howe do i install it in suse9.0

Report

I also use suse 9.0. I liked the installation script a lot. More programs should have installations like this one. The only thing that didn't go so well is that the icons ended up in /usr/share/icons/ instead of /opt/kde3/share/icons. So I had to move them in order to be able to use them in the application. I understand this may happen to everyone who has KDE installed in /opt.

The program is very nice and usable. Good work!

hrm...
aside from the fact that i had to create a symlink from where the plugins were to where it thought they were...this program rox!

i do, however, have an issue that i cant find a solution for....

i had it working fine, but then i modified my connection to go through a network proxy...

now, none of the plugins can connect and i cannot find where to input the proxy info so that they can!

how would i go about letting the plugins/GIft/apollon in on the dirty little secret???

thanx!

I've been trying solutions for a little while now so now I'll come to the community. I'm having problems connecting to all the networks and was hoping somebody might have a suggestion for me. The error I get is along the lines of "the gift daemon is not up and (I) cannot bring it up." I've tried all the things it suggested and started it as root.

you need to create a symlink (ln -s) from the location of the plugins, to the location that apollon (by default) believes they are.
im not at my machine right now, or i would just tell you the locations and give you the command....however, i had the same problem and this was the resolution.

good luck!

Is it just me, or Apollon won't search ...
I installed openGiFT, ok, in 0.9.1 the search went ok, but in 0.9.2 it doesn't search right, actually, it doesn't search at all...
what am I doing wrong? What do I need to install?

does an update of gift help?
try the rc3:

don't forget to recompile the plugins afterwards.

On SUSE 9

compiled giFT from CVS + 3 Plugins (had install the missing devel packages for ImageMagic, libxml, libogg, libvorbis)
compiled apollon.

used checkinstall scipt to create rpms (http://asic-linux.com.mx/~izto/checkinstall/)

Made the gift-setup script and changed the 0 to 1 in the .giFT/ config file

Downloaded test MP3s from all networks.

superb!

you need to install giFT and some plugins too, before you compile Apollon.

you can get giFT either as a tar-ball at http://www.sf.net/projects/gift or
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=34618

or via cvs. giFT-developer recommend strongly to download the tarball!


cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gift.sf.net:/cvsroot/gift login
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gift.sf.net:/cvsroot/gift co giFT
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gift.sf.net:/cvsroot/gift co OpenFT
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gift.sf.net:/cvsroot/gift co Gnutella

(DON'T move the plugins neither OpenFT nor Gnutella under the giFT-directory, it won't work!)

other plugins:

FastTrack (http://developer.berlios.de/projects/gift-fasttrack):

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gift-fasttrack.berlios.de:/cvsroot/gift-fasttrack login
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.gift-fasttrack.berlios.de:/cvsroot/gift-fasttrack co giFT-FastTrack


OpenNap (http://developer.berlios.de/projects/gift-opennap):
(OpenNap works now)

does this only compile under kde 3.2?

ups, oh dear.

no, it compiles also with QT 3.1 and KDE 3.1

To solve this do either:
- edit preferences.ui with a normal editor and change the version number in one of the first tags

or
- open it in your designer and save it again, to change the version number.

and them running it gives:

In version 0.9.2 all-in-one, there seems to be a problem once it gets to compiling giFT
, the problem seems to be when the installer unpacks the foldfolder gift-0.11.6, however when its ready to compile it searches for a folder named gift-0.11.6-rc3 and not gift-0.11.6.

To solve the problem, after your first try(once the installer has unpack gift-0.11.6) rename the folder gift-0.11.6 to gift-0.11.6-rc3 and then the installation should go smoothly.
