odd... running gentoo here, and all I did was unzip and then java -jar phex.jar

My problem is, I'm connected to 64 hosts, through BearShare, and even though there are 17GB (supposedly,) searches are turning up nothing =(

Ah well.

This program seems to have the potetial to be a good rival for kazaa lite (segmented downloads etc,) but so far, I see no reason why I shouldn't boot into windows and use kazaa in stead (or run it with wine.) right now, kazaa lite returns relevant results on every search. You are almost guaranteed to find what you are looking for. What would it take for Phex to be as powerful?

I like the user interface, I think it's simple, and easy to use. I've been using LimeWire because it is the only one that gets me results in linux at the moment.. and I'm really trying hard to use Phex instead because limewire is a bit too flashy for me.
