Thread: PeerGuardian in openSUSE 13.1

  1. #1

    Default PeerGuardian in openSUSE 13.1

    I am a noob in linux, want to install peerguardian in newly installed opensuse 13.1. I have downloaded the tar.gz file from http://sourceforge.net/projects/peerguardian/
    How do I install it now?
    I don't know how to build it, not a programmer. Is there any rpm avalilable in any repo?
    I have tried pacman already

    P.S. -
    1. It would be nice if anyone knows how to solve the video tearing problem. I get horizontal tears while playing in actual(small size), while playing in full screen mode they tend to be negligible. I have already installed libtxc-dxtn. My Intel Sandybridge is recognised with Mesa.

    2. I have intalled through USB(don't know if this is the cause), I get this message while booting system (after loading the kernel):
    "[ 1.655234] usb 1-1.1: device descriptor read/64, error -32"
    then system goes on to booting, and openSUSE starts.

    Please do not mix differrent questions in one thread. To begin they most probably belong to different (sub)forums, then they do not have a title to inform expert there is something to help here and last you will create a confusing discussion where everything is mixed up.

    So Please create new threads for the other problem(s) and please, potential hellpers, wait for those threads and answer her eonly for tthe PeerGuardian question.

    Norm,aly, when you unpack a tarball, there is a file called README or readme.txt or the like. As the name says, you should read that. It should contain instructions on how to build and install the product. And off course, you have it from a web-site, thus look for documentation there.

    When you hav found and read the readme and have questions about it, pleease ome back here with more detailed information.


    PS I searched at http://software.opensuse.org/search, but no hit.

    Hi
    What is in a name....
    http://software.opensuse.org/package/pgl

    So a few home users have it built, use at your own desire or see how
    they built it and adapt, eg;
    https://build.opensuse.org/package/s..._s&package=pgl

    most people who use peerguardian (as I understand it) use it for torrent privacy.
    If this is the reason that you want it (although it may not be) then you could just use the inbuilt peerguardian filter in KTorrent.

    thanks to all for replying
    I installed Peerguardian from fabio repo. It gave some error when I wanted to change list or restart plgcmd, etc. So I had to do all work through terminal like:
    kdesu pglcmd start
    kdesu pglcmd restart
    kdesu vi /etc/pgl/blocklists.list #for editing blocklist

    The PGL gui was working correctly, showing all the status of blocked IPs and other stuff, but only when you wanna change something, it couldn't, there comes the terminal.

    [people who stop getting internet connection is probably because of visiting IP blocked by certain enabled lists. I wanted to enable maximum possible lists and also get everyday use websites working, so I disabled some, and enabled others. Here is the list of active lists: (active lists are without # sign)
    (enabling many lists doesn't hamper the Internet speed, its a myth. What it does is that when you load a website it crosschecks all the content's source(ip addr) with the list which causes delay. Once contents get passed, speed is as usual. eg. you load youtube.com, then every thing gets crosschecked(you wouldn't notice much timelag in this process), after certain video starts playing, it plays with normal speed as the ip source of that video was already checked)

    you can use this list while getting normal websites working, although its not recommended to use these many lists.]

    P.S. -
    1. the tearing issue is my case was solved by switching to "Full screen Repaints" in Desktop Effects -> Advanced -> OpenGL Options -> Tearing Prevention (VSync). I have Asus X44H with K84L board and Intel HD 3000 graphics, ran by Mesa. I did intalled libtxc-dxtn for better 3D effects.
    2. While reinstalling OS this time, I unchecked images as source in "Installation Sources". Now there is no
    "[ 1.655234] usb 1-1.1: device descriptor read/64, error -32" message if I boot without any USB conected, but with USB connected it does give that message, boots okay anyway.

    videos and flash videos in browsers work fine now but there's still tearing in hovering over icons case, as described in this video : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuqCeycwjdU
    the solution in comments below by the upload seems good but I am not able to apply that. I am opening a new thread for that now.

    its worth noting for noobs who install opensuse from USB that when OS starts you would have to remove the USB from the "software repositories" in Yast, without removing it always shows error while checking for updates as it reuires the USB to be connected as well. The USB( or HDD) gets in the repositories no matter if you unchecked the 'source from images' in installation.
