aMule crashes when it connects to a server
« on: February 27, 2004, 08:39:35 PM »

This just randonly started like an hour ago. I was in the search tab and amule crashed so I ran it again only this time after auto-update servers, and auto-connect on startup, as soon as i'm connected aMule crashes. so (using rpmdrake in mandrake 9.2, gnome) I un-installed and re-installed it but nothing. I rebooted...nothing. should I remove the .amule
directory and try again? or mabe a downgrade is in order? amule is dope and I don't want to be stuck *nix overnet or mldonkey.

there is no "crash msg",   after deleting servers.met it doesn't crash it just freezes, when i activate another window it minimises to the tray and won't come back up.

try to don't use  the autoupdate serverlist on startup

as you can see from the above post I can't do that because amule freezes right on startup.

my system is NOT just dragging

I think is has to do with my "temp"dir. I just uninstalled, moved /incoming & /temp, deleted everything else, re-installed an it worked fine...untill I put /incoming and /temp back and restarted.. then crash on startup again

i just starded deleting partfiles en masse until it worked, then i saw this message, it's easier that way.

doesn't the official emule auto check for corrupted partfiles? (as does kademlia and e-plus) why is this not a feature of amule?

I'm intrigued, what else can go wrong with partfiles to cause them to be "broken"?
