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.

Shutdown is just 3 or 4 seconds or so. That's a dramatic improvement. Now I can shutdown immediately. Likewise closing to the tray (Dock) the quit is fast. I guess it's not important but the hide/show command simply lists the Launcher in the menu bar but no gui.

Description for options to close is fine.

Still getting the same netshare 0.52 version downloading each time I re-open MW.

I am not sure about the re-sharing of folder contents because I decided to remove and re-add via selected files.

Extremely happy to see the upload slot options.

Lots of programs default to system drive and user account. I personally don't use the system drive for anything other than the system and apps, etc. An approach I've used for about 20 years (with odd exceptions).
To access the other drives I need to get to root and find volumes. This was relatively easy to do from my first use of MW. But it might confuse some MacOS users who may have alternative drives (yeah I realise most mac users these days use single drive devices such as MacBooks, etc. but some may also use external storages.) I just thought I might bring that point up that the menu system does not have an option to show volumes using a button. Or am I missing something. It's not dramatically important.

I had noticed a few programs where development began on Linux were either difficult or impossible to find a way to use an alternative drive for working with their output files.

But as I suggested this is a very minor thing for MW, the option to find volumes exists.

This puzzles me. Really shouldn't happen.


Quote:

This is most probably due to the fact that OSX defaults to a "nimbus" look-and-feel, which you can change in the options. Reason for that is that otherwise the initial file chooser that asks where to store downloaded files doesn't show. That is a java bug, and the only workaround I found was to switch the look and feel.


If you want to try the Mac look-and-feel change "nimbus" to "system" and restart. Note that some things may not look very pretty, at least the close button on the search tabs looks weird.

Mine was set to "metal". Certainly looks different set to "system" but the file/directory chooser is even more basic and with less directory options. So does not solve the issue. The upload/library showed arrows which is a fraction clearer when Tree mode is used. Mine might have been set to "metal" by default due to Apple's java 6 jdk being the default java.

By the way (1) what is the standard KB/s overhead for running MW?
(2) what is the typical upload and/or download overhead?

On my Mac (Mojave 10.14.6 + Java 8) the directory choosers do not open at all, in fact they crash the gui. That is unfortunate because I would love to switch the default look-and-feel on Mac to "system"

The bundles available for download on muwire.com come with their own java which is version 11. MW wouldn't work on java 6 at all.

I don't really know, but there is overhead with encryption and padding. In addition, I2P routes traffic on behalf of other users, that's how it achieves anonymity. But whatever the overhead, the total BW at system level should not exceed the bandwidth limits set in the options.

I attempted to switch to nimbus but up came aqua instead after a restart. Then after changing and returning to settings to check the difference before a restart mw froze with settings window open.

There's no listing on MW to show java version.

Standard overhead appears to be quite high but I won't specify. Peaks/spikes appear to go higher than settings. At least that's how it appears.

Froze just like that? I guess the Aqua look-and-feel on java is more broken than I thought. You can revert to metal by editing
Code:
$HOME/Library/Application Support/MuWire/gui.properties
and changing the "lnf" entry to
Code:
lnf=metal
Quote:

I will add a new window under the "Status" menu to show the Java version

That is something I need to bring up with the I2P devs, as bandwidth limiting is done by the I2P router. Are the spikes significantly higher than the limit?

I can't open it. Going inside package dnd to terminal (not sure which to choose):
/Applications/MuWire.app/Contents/MacOS/muwire-mac.sh: line 6: jre/bin/java: cannot execute binary file

/Applications/MuWire.app/Contents/MacOS/MuWire.jar
-bash: /Applications/MuWire.app/Contents/MacOS/MuWire.jar: Permission denied

Note: I'm on os10.11. A limitation of my hardware-firmware re: upgrading.

I presume this is the file size? That seems a particularly large allowance for comments; potentially over a thousand words. On one hand it's great commentaries can be large but somehow it looks like it could become short story length.

Good to hear.

Any possibility of shifting to self-updating options in the future? I don't know what process the average 3rd party MacOS app uses but I suspect it's based on Sparkle. By self-updating I'm not referring to updating without the owner's permission (not sure that's even officially allowed on MacOS) but giving notification of an update with an update info window and then once selected it auto updates and restarts. It can be such a clean process and many (most of mine) 3rd party Macos apps use this process.

Launcher version 1.0 was a little meaningless. The About Launcher window simply showed Java version 1.0


I had noticed it's possible to dnd from iTunes directly to MW. One occasion I noticed after removing the files so I could rename them (the physical files), I was unable to re-add them via the same dnd process with iTunes. Possibly because iTunes had not yet updated its references. So now I wait until the files have been renamed before adding either via iTunes or direct dnd from a folder.

I thought for music it might be best to rename the file starting with the artist, album and song title in that order. It's sort of based on the method used by priv torrent sites for torrent titles.

It's an instant startup fail which leads me to think you might have forgotten to change something.

I suspect you might have forgotten to change a reference. Perhaps renaming the name (or version) of the launching app. Although the plist file looks ok. CFBundleShortVersionString 0.01 I don't know if that's correct? Or perhaps forgotten to change the internal java version reference (though I see there's a reference to 13 in the jre folder)?

Generally most of what you have allocated into the MacOS starter folder usually goes into the Resources folder of the package so it's a new approach to me. Might help explain why the plist file is relatively small.

But a PkgInfo file appears to be missing that would normally be alongside the plist file for most apps. First time I've looked at the contents so I cannot compare with a previous version. However I think I saw a reference in the plist file that would normally be in the pkginfo file.

There appears to be a lot of references to mail within the app. Does that mean the dev(s) are monitoring everyone's MW (and system)?
