- Q: I do not know how to use “vi”. Where can I learn?
A: University of Washington have a nice tutorial on How to Use the vi Editor
- Q: How do I remove MLDonkey?
A: Make sure MLDonkey is not running. Determine which version (2.9.6/others) and variant you install (lite/normal/full). Simply remove it by using the command “funpkg -r mldonkey-<version>-<variant>”. E.g. “funpkg -r mldonkey-2.9.6-lite”
- Q: I issued the command “./funpkg -i /mnt/HD_a2/mldonkey-2.9.6-lite.tgz” from the directory / and it is not working.
A: Follow the instructions in the guide.
- Q: I installed MLDonkey (with gd support) but I cannot start mlnet. The log file (mlnet.log) complains that it cannot load ‘libgd.so.2’ and/or ‘libjpeg.so.62’.
A: You didn’t install the required graphical libraries. Follow the section on “Installing graphical libraries” on this post.
- Q: I got the message “Exception: bind failed: Address already in use at port 6881” whenever I start MLDonkey.
A: The D-Link BT software is using that port. You might want to consider removing the D-Link BT. To remove the bit-torrent software, simply delete the /mnt/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/BT directory (rm -rf /mnt/HD_a2/Nas_Prog/BT)
