Talk:Mldonkey - multi-network file-sharing client
having freelink 060801 for mips installed, i first had to find out, that mldonkey is part of debian unstable. managed to make unstable available to apt, but this is what i got installing mldonkey:
root@FL060801:~# apt-get install mldonkey-server Reading Package Lists... Done Building Dependency Tree... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming.
Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that package should be filed. The following information may help to resolve the situation:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
mldonkey-server: Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.5-1) but 2.3.2.ds1-22sarge3 is to be installed Depends: libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.0) but 1:3.4.3-13 is to be installed Depends: libncurses5 (>= 5.4-5) but 5.4-4 is to be installed Depends: libstdc++6 (>= 4.1.0) but 3.4.3-13 is to be installed Depends: ocaml-base-nox-3.09.2
E: Broken packages
so first i have to upgrade the libs - right?
tried to compile it, (instaed of digging into dependencies) using the actual source 2.7.7: but after ./configure --enable-batch --disable-gui i got in the end:
- Checking system libraries.
- checking zlib (required)
- checking for inflate in -lz... no
- Zlib missing, did you install zlib and zlib-developer packages?
what next? install zlib first? so tried first a:
apt-cache search zlib apt-get install zlib1g apt-get install zlib1g-dev
./configure --enable-batch --disable-gui
and got at the end:
Now execute 'make' to start compiling. Good luck!
make seemed to run fine, but make install did not:
root@FL060801:/tmp/mldonkey/mldonkey-2.7.7# make install no -inline 10 -I src/utils/cdk -I src/daemon/chat -I src/gtk/chat ... -I src/networks/donkey -c src/utils/lib/fifo.ml make: no: Command not found make: *** [src/utils/lib/fifo.cmx] Error 127
searching http://www.mldonkey.org/forum showed up the same error in other context, but i could not find a solution to this yet ... --- so i fetched mldonkey_mips-2.7.6.tar.gz and tried to install this:
root@FL060801:/mnt/hda/mp3/mldonkey/mldonkey-2.7.6# ./install.sh cp: cannot stat `wget': No such file or directory cp: cannot stat `diff': No such file or directory ln: creating symbolic link `/etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S99mldonkey' to `/etc/init.d/mldonkey.sh': No such file or directory
well, i know this was compiled for openlink, not for freelink ...so it's normal that the install.sh will not run ...
for the moment i think i will play around with ctorrent or rtorrent - maybe this much easier to install.
