MLDonkey 2.9.3 for DNS-323, DNS-313, CH3SNAS, …

MLdonkey 2.9.3 has been released on the 19th of January 2008. Compiled it a few days back, recompiled it every now and then. Noticed that the size of the binary has increased quite a bit.

Didn’t see any significant changes in the changelog for MLDonkey 2.9.3. I am offering the MLDonkey client in three flavors again – real simple edition, normal, and full. The procedures for setting up the real simple edition is exactly the same as 2.9.2. Simply extract the files of the real simple edition onto your Volume_1 and reboot.

Head over to MLDonkey for DNS-323 to grab your copy of MLDonkey 2.9.3 for your DNS-323, DNS-313, CH3SNAS, etc.

    Hi Andy, how are u? I’m interesting to implement this new release of mldonkey, but i want to install without gdlib because i use only sancho…is it possible? Thanks again:)

    Hi! It has been fine except for the number of project deadlines. Well, the gdlib won’t really affect your sancho implementation. You have concerns regarding the presence of gdlib?

    Hi Shadowandy,
    I was running 2.9.2 and downloaded and extracted 2.9.3 per your instructions. As the files extracted and over write the 2.9.2 files, it stalled because the “torrents” directory can’t be accessed. Any ideas?

    Hi, how can you shut down MLdonkey?

    Just installed mldonkey, managed to search using edonkey for some files, managed to put in some torrents to download. However, after the initial few minutes, there is no further download/upload activity. Is there anyway I can troubleshoot this? Or is there anything I can do to test to make sure that my installation is working?

    hi, I added a new HD in my 323, and re-format both 2 HD to RAID 1, of course, before I added the HD, I backed up all files to another place. After the format was done, I moved all previours files to 323. But the mldonkey is not running. I tried to manual re-start it, but still fail; here is the result:

    Perhaps you can check the load of the DNS-323. Otherwise you could try to limit the amount of files you download. MLDonkey is pretty stressful on the CPU.

  • May 15, 2008 at 10:49 pm


    For segmentation faults. You have to remove the directory /mnt/HD_a2/mldonkey . That is the only solution I have currently.

    I’ve noticed mldonkey does not let the disks to spin down even if there are no active torrents.

    Is there anything I can do for this other than kill core after download completed?

    The mldonkey scans a particular directory every fixed interval to add .torrent files to download. Run thru the settings and try disabling the scanning to see if it works.
