MLDonkey 3.0.4 for DNS-313, DNS-323, DNS-343

Tried my luck (again) at compiling MLDonkey 3.0.4. Installation instructions are similar to previous versions (e.g. MLDonkey 2.9.7). This should be the last time I will be compiling MLDonkey for the D-Link NAS. If there are any issues with the package. Do inform me. πŸ™‚

  1. mldonkey lite – supports filetp, bittorrent
  2. mldonkey lite (no gd) – supports filetp, bittorrent
  3. mldonkey normal – supports filetp, bittorrent, edonkey
  4. mldonkey normal (no gd) – supports filetp, bittorrent, edonkey
  5. mldonkey full – supports filetp, bittorrent, edonkey, directconnect
  6. mldonkey full (no gd) – supports filetp, bittorrent, edonkey, directconnect

    Hello!

    Can you repost the howto install MLDonkey on the DNS-323 as I’m a newbie and I have no clue about how to do so. I can connect to it using Telnet, but that’s all, I’m sorry… πŸ™
    Thanks a lot for your wonderful job, by the way

    Hi again and again!

    I’ve got a “little” problem, as my major tracker site, http://www.torrent411.com, doesn’t accept MLDonkey to be connected to…

    Does anyone know a good alternative to MLDonkey???

    Sorry again…

    Hi
    any chance to have this compiled fot MRT Gigabit DUAL-NAS E?
    It would be of great help since the current release that we have (2.9.5-r1) doesn’t work properly. Anytime I reboot the NAS mldonkey is not available and I can only uninstall and reinstall, loosing all the downloads.

    Thanks

    Hi,
    I’m facing a problem on First run / initial setup phase.
    When I’m typing :
    / # telnet 127.0.0.1 4000 or
    /mnt/HD_a2 # telnet 127.0.0.1 4000

    I get a message :
    telnet: cannot connect to remote host (127.0.0.1): Connection refused
    ———————————-
    any idea what I’m doing wrong ?

    Hi KOSU,

    It could be that some software is using the ports required by MLDonkey. Some users have encountered that before. Do refer to the MLDonkey 2.9.7 link and do a search through the comments or look at point 8 of MLDonkey FAQ

    # Add Hub name IP address Users Info
    Hubs: 0 known (showing all hubs from hublist)

    Hi KOSO,

    I don’t really use opendc, it was a request from some users hence I added it in. Probably you can check out MLDonkey website?

    Thanks for you helpful job!
    Is there a chance to get from you any “how-to” on compiling MLdonkey?
    I tried several time by myself with no luck.
    Some instruction will be awesome!

    ArthurDent,

    Probably you can share on what you have tried doing. Did you try to cross compile or do native compiling on the DNS-323/DNS-343?

    Hi, thanks for reply.
    I install funpkg make-3.81-3.tgz and gcc-4.1-2.tgz
    Then I download the mldonkey-3.0.5.tar.bz2
    I untar in a folder, cd in that dir
    and run ./configure
    Then I got an error.
    I read someware that ocaml is needed, but I cant find any package for funplug…

    Sorry, I forgot to askt this:
    Is there a way to create a virtual machine for compiling it?
    I would like to avoid any problem due to compile it directly in the nas.
    What should I use? Is there an emulator or a distribution?
    Thanks again!

    ArthurDent,

    I used to create virtual machine to compile it but deleted it away due to lack of disk space. You can set up a one by googling for “cross-compile” howtos and set up a cross compiler environment. I used to use Ubuntu for my cross compiles.

    Nowadays I just compile it natively using my DNS-323. Just download the mldonkey source and compile. As for the ocaml package, there isn’t a fun_plug module for it. Search for ocaml source and compile it natively. After which, you should have no problem compiling mldonkey from source.

    Hope it helps. πŸ™‚

    hi Chaps,
    Is there a compiled version for DNS-313 with openDC ?
    Too much of a noob to attempt compiling it πŸ™
    Thanks Dave

    Hi,
    I took the source and I tried to compile it. Nothing to do. I receive an error on something about “AS” missing. Maybe I need another package to compile it other than make-3.81-3.tgz and gcc-4.1-2.tgz? Any Ideas?

    I’m trying the other way too. I install an UBUNTU VM and still googling and trying. I found this cross compiler too: Sourcery G++ for ARM, which seems to make it all easier (for others, not for me). I’ll keep you posted about my progress, but any hint will be appreciated πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been having issues with transmission on my dns323, does the mldonkey have problems with more than 50 torrents?

    Hi!

    You stated that this would probably be your last compilation of MLDonkey. Does it mean that you recommend to use something else like transmission? I would like to install a torrent client on my DNS-313 and need to make a choice, hence the question.

    TIA,

    Hi I am trying to get this working on a DNS-320. When I try and start it, I get the following error:

    /ffp/bin/mlnet: can’t load library β€˜libz.so.1β€²

    This seems to be different to the errors relating to the gd packages being missing, but I loaded them anyway just in case and is the same. That library is there:

    /mnt/HD/HD_a2/mldonkey # find / -name libz.so.1
    /lib/libz.so.1

    I created a symbolic link to /mnt/HD/HD_a2, recognising the difference in path from the DNS-323.

    Any suggestions?

    colin,

    Have you tried creating a symbolic link in /ffp/lib ?

    Hi, when you have time, could you try to compile a package for ktorrent? I really like ktorrent feature that allows user to select which file to download.

    thanks

    Don’t think it’s possible to get ktorrent running on the DNS since it’s a GUI client meant for KDE environment.

    Hi,

    I installed Mldonkey on my CH3MNAS, it seems to work, I am able to reach the webui. However when I add a torrent dl link it says parsing http url and does not start the download. I placed a .torrent file in mldonkey\torrents\incoming folder with telnet. No result, after a couple of seconds/minutes it placed the file in mldonkey\torrents\old….

    Any ideas?

    Can you make new package with Gnutella and Directconnect? Right now current Mldonkey version is 3.1.0.

    Hi Anton,

    I am no longer compiling mldonkey due to other commitments. 3.0.4 is the last mldonkey compilation from me.

    Hi,

    I would like to use that transmission is mldonkey on my dns 323 transmission, but also eats all the bandwidth limiting, how can I solve for ML also allow you to download?
    thanks

    ml: DW = 0 Up = 20
    tr: DW = 200 up = 20

    band DW = 750 UP= 60

    Thanks f the instructions package etc.

    For some reason when I download any of the packages they end-up being corrupted. Invalid magic in the .tgz. I downloaded the graphic libraries succesfully using the same browser session, but not the mldonkey 3.0.4 package.

    Any help appreciated, thanks
