Hi,

has anyone been successful with apollon and its plugins for fedora?
If so maybe you can steer me to a guide on how to do this.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Hello, i have tried several times in the past with no luck, try using amule, or frostwire, though id like to know the answer myself as well.

What's the problem you're having? Installing it with "yum install apollon apollon-libs" works and runs fine although I haven't tried downloading anything.

BTW, I prefer mldonkey as a backend with sancho as a gui - works well for me a and means I can run the backend on my NAS box and use a gui on my laptop to connect to it.

Well heres how i got apollon running with gnutella

su
yum -y install gift gift-gnutella apollon
in a normal terminal

gift-setup
make sure you read and answer 1 for the first question and when it comes to the main plugins enter

Gnutella
the rest i just did default by just hitting enter, but its up you what you put but id advise you carefully go through each option, and hopefully it should work, there is other plugins etc but i havent got to that. if anyone knows a easier,better way please tell me as this way is to long, also it did take a while the first time for it to connect.

hi,
well it appears that I can download if I click on search results with more than 1 slot.....not totally sure if this is true. Here are some screen shots of diffent things. Notice only one network is active (gnutella).

Im beginning to think your right there (its a gift from god if you get this fully functioning)its not firewall ports etc, on comp or router maybe its the isp,s or something.
