Hi,
Mldonkey is a p2p application for ed2k bittorrent and filetp, DC, fasttrack.
I have compiled (for fun) shared and static cores on a Debian Etch running on an emulated ARM system.They seem to work fine on real ARM boxes too.
Please have a look at main thread/Download location :

http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4825

DNS PROBLEMS?LIBRARY PROBLEMS?
Various solutions are described in the main mldonkey's thread(main post):

http://mldonkey.sourceforge.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4825

Please download cores, try them, and give me suggestions and feedback(In this forum too)).
I'll keep compiling cores.
Hope useful.
fabtar

P.s: The archive contains mlnet.static (statically linked one).
Hi,
please it is important for me to get feedback about the last 2.9.4cvs version.
Cause I have Synology users having a strange (Illegal instruction) crash.
Please read this thread or main thread on mldonkey forum for installation, update you libraries with mine if you like to use LD_library trick.

cool. as i compiled many different mldonkey versions for the different linkstations i recommend to disable some needed libs like libmagic....then they aren`t needed for using the core.

another thing we noticed with mldonkey 2.8.4 was that it somehow quit after about 5 - 20 minutes of operation. maybe this was related to the SUID-problems on arm9-boxes + because the LS Pro/LS Live (and i think ALL other arm9-based consumer NAS-devices) don`t have a hardware FPU.

Freelink (aka debian) users, please test this binaries for this symptons!

PS: spiralvoice was here in the forums as well in the past. he asked us about the SUID problems as well

Thx
I'll compile a lighter version of the cores without the extra-Libs(thx for suggestions! I suppose you are able to install those libraries on your debian-box, in case they are needed, do you prefer a version without libs cause performace-memory issues?) and I'll compile a minimal version without SUI too in the next days.
I'm just curious about on the road testing of current cores (waiting feedback).

P.s: My emulated ARM is a full arm with fpu, so I cannot trigger that SUI problem in my enviroment.
I think you can disable SUID by option panel or by editing config files.

Hmm, downloaded and tried it on jtymod5:

Only the static build works for me, but during initialisation / in the web gui (works, can change options etc.) it fails the DNS test. On the box itself nslookup works without problems and also for the URL's tested during initialisation.

I didn't spend too much time dealing with it and simply called the static build from the untared dir.

@Georg
Thx for feedback, I'll wait for others to confirm this DNS problem.. suggestions are appreciated!!
Perhaps looking in mlnet.log or givin' mldonke's "sysinfo" command output could help in understanding the problem.

@All
I post here a big archive containing more builds, I have tried to automate the process in order to provide 3 types of release archives:

Code:
full   networks:ed2k-bittorrent-directconnect-FileTP   Library disabled:none   SUI compiled
normal   networks:ed2k-bittorrent-FileTP         Library disabled:Libgd,libmagic SUI Disabled
minimal   networks:ed2k               Library disabled:Libgd,libmagic SUI Disabled


Pick here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/47897871/ml ... l.tar.html

The buildinfo is quite similar the past cores , I'll try to add those info too in the future.
+ do you like other cores options/combinations... tell me.

I don't think fasttrack is a useful network, plus gnutella's plugin is a bit junky at the moment.

P.s: I think I'll do the same for PowerPC architecture, are Linkstation PPC using debian too?

yes they are using debian. we have debian on all linkstations. it is called FreeLink.

it would be great if you could do the same for powerpc!

it was always up to me to compile the cores....

I 'll try to install a powerpc this afternoon.
I have a question:
Does your debian-ARM linkstations support big-endian or low-endian?
(I have heard strange things about little endian debian running on Big endian ARMs using special Kernel with swapping functionalities).
My currenty ARM-system is currently little-endian.

the strange things you have heard are from nslu2-linux.org....there they had 2 different versions of debian....a little endian and a big endian debian. they started the initiative to port debian to arm-big-endian. i had both versions installed on my nslu2.

as georg already was able to run the binary (even if it showed some problems) i am quite sure it is little endian. we are definitely not using the nslu2-arm_big-endian_port on our arm-boxes.

Thanks for these infos, I have supposed too that a little-endian exectuable cannot work on a big-endian machine.
I'm waiting for more guys here to try the cores and givin' feedback.
I'm also working on PowerPC's cores but qemu's PowerPC emulation is not so good, and I'm having difficulties in setting-up compilation enviroment.
I keep working on it.

@Georg

I'm not an expert in network configuration.
Can you post( here or via PM) your resolf.conf?
I'm also interested in your log file, you can send your log via PM.

Could you please post your glibc version?

you can install and use "apt-show-versions" usage:

apt-show-versions libc6

I have also heard about problems with http://wiki.coralcdn.org/wiki.php?n=Main.FAQ#SERVFAIL .
I'm not so good about this network configuration stuff :-D .
I suggest you to send me resolf.conf too.
Cheers

here are the GPL-sources of the LS Pro:
http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/LS ... gpl_ls-gl/

glibc 2.3.6 was the base c-library with the original image:
http://buffalo.nas-central.org/download/LS ... arm.tar.gz

but which one was the one used with debian? it wasn`t the same, it was a different one? if that would be original one we couldn`t install anything from the debian feeds, i think?

can anyone post it please? i can`t as i try to get OE running again on my LS Pro.

I have a compiled cores with the original debian glibc 2.3.6
Theorically all the sistem with glibc version >= 2.3.6 has to run the executable wit no problems.
If you have a older glibc on your linkstation this could cause linkage problems, but sometimes it works.
I have read that with glibc version <= 2.2 there are problems with anme resolution in mldonkey.
I have understood you have a modified glibc, I'll go deeper in this.
