Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Talking How-to: Phex 0.7.3 On Linux

Ok, i heard a lot of stuff about Phex. that doesnt work bla bla, well here are the steps to get it to work:
Download Java JRE 1.4/1.3, i use
www.blackdown.org myself. cause sun sucks..
Install it
Set the path envoriment as root
export PATH="/usr/java/jre2/bin":$PATH
NOTE, that line. should be different, check where your jre/bin dir is.
Ok, you might want to add that line to /etc/rc.local or create a sh script eg:

#!/bin/sh
echo "Starting Java..."
export PATH="/usr/java/jre2/bin":$PATH
echo "Done..."

Save it as java.sh and copy it to /etc/profile.d/
Oh, and remember to chmod +x java.sh before copying it,
OR if you want to do it more easily just do
echo export PATH="/usr/java/jre2/bin":$PATH >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Now, you got Java working and stuff
Do this. download this
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/phex/phex.hosts
and copy it to the user youre are running Phex.
EJ: im user marccd
so.. do this
cp phex.hosts /home/marccd/.phex/
Overwrite the one is already there,
or if youre root then cp phex.hosts /root/.phex/
Bla Bla, Nowe download the gnutella.net file
http://gnutella.co.uk/servers/gnutella.net
Copy the content of that file and paste it into your
/home/user/.phex/phex.hosts
Ok. that should work allright, now you might want to add an alias for java -jar phex.jar
[marccd@marccd phex_0.7.3_j2se1.4]$ alias "phex=java -jar phex.jar"
that should add an alias. so u just type Phex, instead of java -jar phex.jar,
now. add thar line to the end of /etc/rc.local
do this
echo alias "phex=java -jar phex.jar" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local
remember to do all the steps as root. but run phex as normal user. so it reads /home/user/.phex/stuff
or you can copy the contents of /home/user/.phex
to /root/.phex
that should work,
Ok, hope it helps!!
Ps: for the speed problem.. get more memory. is juts that java sucks. and eats lots of memory




GregorK: I changed the > to >> to not overwrite the rc.local

Thanks for the intro, I followed along and thought I would mention that to append to a file you need to use >> rather than just > . It overwrote my existing rc.local the first time I went through it.

I am still having a trouble though. I am getting the errors

command:
$bash: phex

errors:
Exception in thread "main" java.util.zip.ZipException: No such file or directory
at java.util.zip.ZipFile.open(Native Method)
at java.util.zip.ZipFile.<init>(ZipFile.java:112)
at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:117)
at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:55)


Any help would be great. thanks.

Hi marccd..

can you tell me why you don't like Phex? Is it just because of Java or are there other things that you don't like.
I would be very happy to get all feedback I can, this helps me improve Phex and maybe in one day it will work just the way you like it.

Thanks,
Gregor

Lightbulb k

First of all Java!, try using libraries like Qt or Gtk, its not so hard to learn. second it needs more feature. like bandwith control, stats. etc. the Search thingy should have tabs, it will be cool to have shorcuts like Open with > Xmms FreeAmp etc etc, Maybe a mp3 player ? xmms is very extensible, mpg123 is cooll too,
Ahh, and the GUI needs some clean up, and some features, :/, a little mp3/ogg organizer (file manager) will be nice too, what about a dock app ? it can be kde / gnome, but just like a wm one cause i use fluxbox *sniff*, theres lots of things that will be cool. eg a cvs!!!!, or a live little chat support window on phex, or even maybe OpenNap compatible client, like gnapster. has opennap, or even giFT,
etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc etc

Hi...

switching from Java to a different library is no choice. It would take to much development to port everything.

You might have not noticed it but Phex already has bandwidth control since a long time.

We are working on integration with more plattform related programs. The only problem is that it can be very difficult on linux to determine whats your favorite program for mp3 or html.
On windows this is no big deal at all. But if you know how to do it I sure integrate it.
Always keep in mind that will will not start to concentrate on just one plattform. We may integrate plattform specific features but compatibility to other plattforms must be ensured.

I'm also working on the integration of a better library manager. But this will take some more time till its ready.

Chat support will be available shortly in Phex 0.8.

Other P2P protocols will not be supported. The nature of different P2P protocols is too different to support them both correctly.

What do you mean with 'a cvs'?

Gregor

A Phex CVS, so we can keep updated with the latest :evel:: version of Phex, really good for proggramers in Linux, mp3 player nmnm. the most used are mpg123 and xmms you can add this command to the Open with mpg123 ...
===========
xterm -t mpg123 -e mpg123 %x
(i think)
-----------
%x is the file that u want to play, xmms will be like
xmms %f &

then the browser stuff, i use galeon myself, but most of the people use Mozilla / Galeon, then opera or konqeror, theres still people that use lynx,

lynx %url &

same with all the browsers. except konqueror. that is something with kdmclient crap, kde is full of unusable crap anyways,

yesterday i checked out the latest cvs of gtk-gnutella , ( 0.91), and now they have some new Server stats feature, thats pretty cool. maybe u guys will implement it, you can use Java, but the instalation is kind of tricky with the export stuff for a newbie,
anyways good luck
marccd
