Thread: So the Linux version of Emule?

  1. #1

    Default So the Linux version of Emule?

    What is it? I have asked this before but never got around to doing it. I believe it was called amule or something. Basically this program will allow me to download ISO's, bin, cue images from a certain website i use.

    I have never used amule, but that should work. There is also mldonkey, which I highly recommend.

    yes it's amule, and it will be in your repositories, I think it is in packman, not sure though. Ummmm, it a p2p client, which means you are downloading from other clients, not a website, unless the website holds the emule links on it?

    If you did the 1-click installer for codecs and restricted formats, then that added the packman repository.

    Go to Install Software in your menu and search for amule. If it isn't there, then Google up "RPM Search" and search for an amule RPM.

    Next to amule Limewire is also a good emule / edonkey replacement.
    Advantage is it does torrents now too, so it like your one-stop shop. Haven't used it on 11 yet though.

    Limewire does Gnutella and BitTorrent. It wouldn't help him with the eDonkey links from the website however.

    mlDonkey does Gnutella, eDonkey, BitTorrent, and much more including:

    FastTrack
    FTP/HTTP
    KAD
    Overnet

    and many more

    OtherNetworksUnsupported - MLDonkey

    could someone please give me a link to a version of amule that will work with OpenSUSE 11.0

    I have had a search around by looking "RPM Search" up on google and then from the site. It errors though when i try to install it. Could someone give me a link to a version of amule they have tried with 11.0

    Thanks.

    Hi Neo,

    The packman repository has aMule..

    Add this as HTTP source to your software repros :
    server name : ftp.skynet.be
    directory on Server : /pub/packman/suse/11.0/

    Cheers,
    Wj

    edit: note that this is a european mirror...
    Have a lot of fun!
