Running aMule on your slug
Note: This assumes you have installed OpenSlug.
These are the steps you have to follow to have an 8W consuming aMule client:
You can download amule and wxbase packages from here: http://www.telefonica.net/web2/deb/amulefeed/index.html and install them.
You can also build amule yourself:
It's done! The first time you run amuled, an .amule subdirectory will be created under your home directory. You'll have to tweak a little with amule.conf to set up the external connections port and passwords, bandwith limits, etc...
See http://www.amule.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page for help and tips.
Running amule on SlugOS/BE from pre-built packages
Make sure that first you have the Optware repositories enabled.
Install the following:
That's it. Configure by first running amuled once for creating the hidden configuration directory .aMule on your user home directory. Edit the amule.conf in there to fit your needs.
Note: After a clean installation my amuled started and consumed 100% CPU without doing nothing. The solution (so far):
Get cryptkey.dat, clients.met, preferences.dat, preferencesKad.dat, key_index.dat, load_index.dat and src_index.dat files from eMule's config directory (usually, under Windows, something like C:\Program files\eMule\config) and copy them into ~/.aMule. Now start aMule so it reads those files. You're done! (http://www.amule.org/wiki/index.php/FAQ_aMule). Edit again your amule.conf file for your settings like password and ECConnect? enable.
Also my amuleweb daemon kept failing after a while with a segmentation fault error, or the following log error:
