Yet fasttrack anf openft seem to work fine. I could post my
apropriate config-files, if requested.


I poked around the giFT site on Sourceforge and found out that there is apparently a bug which doesn't allow gift-gnutella to process entries in gwebcache. And this is further complicated by the problem that the nodes file in the current release is empty.

This thread on sourceforge discusses the problem.

In short to fix gnutella, obtain a current node and gwebcache file and update the Gnutella directory in your working giFT directory. You can obtain sample files from:

http://mikeb.servehttp.com/nodes
http://mikeb.servehttp.com/gwebcaches


I have tried what both of the links still can not get gnutella to work still the same problem :evil:

Oh my God, it works now. [Gnutella, that is.] I may finally be able to stop wineing Shareaza...


...though I'd probably want an eDonkey and preferably a G2 plugin as well before I do that.

PLEASE update the howto to use:
Code:
echo "net-p2p/gift ~x86" >> /etc/portage/package.keywords; emerge gift

instead of
Code:
ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge gift


Otherwise you definitely break things in gentoo and the old method should no longer be used.

Thanks

Heh, sorry about that, I wasn't thinking... anyways, the required version of gift is now stable in portage, so the howto on page 3 was updated to reflect that.

Also, for the people wanting to help the gnutella network out and have the bandwidth to share, check out http://portage.squinky.gotdns.com/net-p2p/gwebcache/ and get that running on your server. WARNING: this is a bandwidth hog and even years after you uninstall it, you will be getting hits to it. It's like taking a hammer to your webserver and pounding it over and over again. Only install this into a virtual host so you can remove the vhost when you see how stupid you were by installing it. Well, you were warned, so please go install it now if you know what you're doing. I'm debating putting this into portage because of how deadly it can be to a home server... suggestions?

Hi,
I have gift 0.11.7 installed. (Never had gift before; this is a fresh install.) I emerged gift itself just fine, but when I tried to emerge gnutella and openft plugins, I got the error saying that the giftproto library couldn't be found:

Code:
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.3.4/../../../../i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld: cannot find -lgiftproto


Then I did a qkpg -l gift; there's no libgiftproto, only libgift. Does anybody else have the same issue? Any solution?

psiworks try the 0.11.6 ebuild instead of 0.11.7.
Look here.

Thanks for the ideas robg. If you sync, you can now run
$ sh /usr/portage/net-p2p/gift-gnutella/files/cacheupdate.sh
and it will update your gwebcaches, which will fetch new hosts and nodes for you :).

Running that will just update Gnutella's files when you emerge sync? I'm a little confused on what it does.

The script will fetch good caches, which in turn will give you good hosts. By running this script, you'll notice that gift-gnutella may also even connect a little faster if you don't have good caches.
See http://www.gnucleus.com/gwebcache/ for more information.

Thanks! I was looking for those.

Given this is a giFT tips thread, would someone pls tip me as to how to disallow peers from browsing my shared folders? I can't seem to find the option. 8O

[edit:] I found it after all.

The best way to setup gift is to install apollon.

Then removing your ~/.giFT folder.

Start apollon and use the quickstart wizard.

Do: mkdir ~/.giFT/Gnutella

Then goto apollon configuration. Click on advanced tab.
Click add plugins.
Then goto /usr/lib/giFT/ folder and one by one add all three plugins.
Restart apollon.

Thats it. All done for you.
Now you can use the apollon GUi config to configure giFT. It starts and stops giFT for you.

gift is a piece of crap, well maybe not gift and openft, see, gift and openft work, but it never connects to gnutella or fasttrack and the upstream guys are essentially assholes who get mad at ya when you ask why it ain't working. So hopeless piece of shit software with no support. You get what you pay for, and unlike a lot of other things in the Linux world, when using giFT you really do feel that you have got nothing for nothing. Maybe they'll charge for the actually working version, who knows (perhaps their marketing ploy)

I've nodes files for Gnutella and FastTrack and all the .conf stuff seems alright. Has anyone got Gnutella and FastTrack actually connected. If so, give me a tip or something. I mainly want FastTrack to work, I don't care about Gnutella, tis crap anyway. So if you got FastTrack working, tell us how to do it. Plus I don't want to install Apollon, I don't use KDE or QT.

I can't help regarding your connection problems since I probably did what you already did to get connected(see my previous post).

But I want to tell you that Gnutella isn't crap. My most current Gnutella speeds measured 92KB/s.

If you wanna talk about crap networks however, you can't get any closer than FastTrack. It's generally filled with leechers, fakes and RIAA more than any other networks. I dropped it and switched to OpenFT and I get better search hits constantly. Hope I help you there! :)

The fasttrack plugin works fine for me. I simply emerged gift, the plugins and giFTcurs, adjusted some settings (gift-setup) and I was good to go. The only thing is I can't connect to Gnutella,the other things work just fine.

All three work for me... either FastTrack or OpenFT worked out of the box, can't remember which, the other worked once I ran the config thingy, and so did Gnutella once I followed the tip that was posted a page or so back.

Also, slightly off topic, but what, if any, is the difference between this and MLDonkey? Both are daemon-based with a seperate GUI frontend, and have multinetwork support through a plugin architecture. The only difference I can discern is that MLDonkey has plugins for a *hell* of a lot more networks, and most of them work - eDonkey, Overnet, Gnutella, Gnutella2, OpenFT, Piolet, FastTrack, Soulseek, OpenNap, and the list goes on.

I can't find out which ports to use in fasttrack.conf and giftd.conf.
I'm behind a NAT and opened port 6911.
Running giftd -v all I get is a list like that:

...

I suppose the problem is with port settings, but I've mixed it all up...
Any help?

I have exaclty the same problem.... and another one: If I run giftd as user I get connection errors also from openFT.... I think that's has something to do with my firewall..... but how do I configure my firewall??? I'm using pppoe to connect.

I had it, then no more, then it is back on a new install on a different machine. Go figure. It probably just takes time until it can get a server list ? Or can we update the nodes list manually ?
