« on: May 13, 2004, 01:14:14 AM »

hiya,

i would like to know where did you find aMule .. kinnda interesting :)

some months ago i was looking for a *Mule for linux and found xMule first..
had it running for a day or 2 and looked again for another client .. then i found amule on freshmeat.net .. installed it and i was happy :)
after that i've built the first rpms of amule and some weeks later i joined the dev team  :))

Hmm...

lmule -> xmule -> amule

To be honest, I don't remember where I heard of lmule.  I just showed up in the IRC channel one fateful day...  The rest is (*mule) history

well...
I looked at the xmule page and could not find a valid download option...
I think by that time it was kind of closed because of some law problems from the maintainer ;)
so then search search and there it was on sf --> amule :)
and then yeah they had a webinterface so here I am ;)

an italian linux forum, first release, I think

I tried 1.0.3 compiling manually then with the ebuild
Code: [Select]
* net-p2p/amule
 
     Sun Oct  5 02:19:37 2003 >>> net-p2p/amule-1.0.7
     Sun Nov  9 18:17:26 2003 >>> net-p2p/amule-1.1.2
     Thu Nov 20 13:15:25 2003 >>> net-p2p/amule-1.1.3
     Wed Nov 26 23:20:26 2003 >>> net-p2p/amule-1.2.0
     Sat Dec 13 11:46:58 2003 >>> net-p2p/amule-1.2.1


got a lot of problem with release 1.0.7-1.2.0, so I used principally xmule 1.6.1 and
I switched to amule with 1.2.1



PS. in an italian linux magazine (linux pratico #15, may 2004) there's a four-pages review, I think there will be a lot of italian users now ;)

I found lmule xmule and amule googling. Then asked at #debian on freenode.net and someone told me amule was "the one" xD
Then joined #amule, talked with Kry, and rapidly decided which one to use :-P

I found amule when the xmule dev started the flamewar against you, by that time i didnt even tried xmule, so i thought if a dev flames a project maybe a give it a try, so as soon as i got broadband i downloaded amule and here i am....

The first time I hear about aMule was in the http://www.lmulespana.tk/ website. In that time, i was using xmule.

I have been using lmule, later xmule.
Then, when lugdunum changed his client and razorback and silent-bob (r.i.p) were using the new server with the zlib-function, I always got messages in xmule: "Message from Server: your client doesn't support zlib, please upgrade"
Then xmule *was* upgraded, at least, they told so in the changelog. but I still got these messages, so I started to search for another client. Then I found amule, it worked perfectly, so laterI  joined the channel and became a tester :)

I've long used edonkey2000 original core, and Müller's ed2k-gtk-gui with it. It worked on linux, but then I needed to get it running on SUN Solaris system. This is when I found xmule, used it for a while, and now ended up with amule.

First found reference to lMule on google. Then a friend mentioned that xmule was available through yum on freshrpms.net. And somehow I heard about aMule (not sure how or when), which also is available through yum on freshrpms.net.

I'm happy using aMule now, except that there is a bug with files > 2 GB. (It looks like this bug is also present on lMule and xMule on my system...)

I heard from it at http://www.debianforum.de along with others like mldonkey and bittorrent

i was trying bittorrent but silly me couldnt figure it out (hey, you get a bit too convenient as old-bie windows user), then tried xmule and i didnt manage to install it

then i looked at the last choice, amule, and easily found a detailed howto (from source, even though i use debian, i prefer to compile small programs from source whenever possible, and resort back to packages when i run into problems)

The amazing thing was - and for this i am very glad - amule worked without a single bug message!

Only after amule worked, i had the time (or wanted) to read some more including forum things, and i think i love it already (was using emule under windows, and was very happy, prior to that i used kazaa lite and soulseekt, and it was ok)

I think other forums are the best way to hear about good P2P clients, for example without forums i would have never found out that you can use usenet to share files  :)
