Default edonkey n00b question

How do I get edonkey up and running?

This is a list of ports that I have installed
Code:
edonkey-gui-gtk-0.6.4_6 GTK GUI to eDonkey2000 'core' command line client
edonkey-gui-gtk-urlslave-0.0.2_7 GTK+ enabled Perl script for adding ed2k:// links to ed2k G
edonkey-tool-hash-0.4.0 Both calculates 'eDonkey/Overnet hashes' producing ed2k:// 
linux-edonkey-core-1.3.0,1 eDonkey2000 'core' command line client
linux-edonkey-server-16.39_1 A decentralized peer-to-peer file-sharing server (eDonkey20
When I run the edonkey-gui it complains that "NO core binaries are found in your path(What path?) Please install an overnet or edonkey client command line client)."

However, I have noticed that I have the following:
Code:
[disappearedng@miuky1 /usr/local/sbin]$ /usr/local/sbin/donkey 

[--- Storing settings in '/home/disappearedng/.eDonkey2000' ---]

Error loading contact list
Welcome to eDonkey2000 command line client 1.3.0
Enter commands at any time (type '?' for help)
>
That I infact have a edonkey command line client!
How do I configure my gui to this?

I can't help you with edonkey... However I can point you into another direction: MLDonkey.

MLDonkey is an open source, free software multi-network peer-to-peer application. Currently the following protocols are supported: eDonkey, Overnet, Bittorrent, Gnutella, Gnutella2, Fasttrack, FileTP and Kademlia.

I use it on a headless server and connect to it via a web browser from anywhere.

I've written a tutorial on how to set it up: http://linux-bsd-sharing.blogspot.co...donkey-on.html

MLDonkey can also be setup to be administrated via a GUI interface.

amule is another option too to get on the eD2k servers. It seems like they get confiscated/taken down by the week these days though.

Nice how-to, tangram

I used to be a rtorrent fan, until I know mldonkey

Apart from working very well with torrent and edonkey protocol, I really like the fact that mldonkey supports connecting to more than 1 servers.

Just one thing, I have never tried Gnutella successfully. I never have any result found from other gnutella clients when I do a search. Does it work for you, tangram?

I was a rtorrent user too. But with MLDonkey's web interface even my wife could use it. Plus the daemon side and multi protocol aspects of MLDonkey won me over.

As for Gnutella network... I haven't use it. 90% of the times I use ed2k network and the remaining time I use the bitorrent network.

But make sure you've compiled it with Gnutella support and browse the settings make sure it is enabled. Also take a look here http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/Gnutella for the project's info on Gnutella support.

Hope it helps.
