I meant to mention that the sourceforge link is pointed to by Downloads on the project home page

Couldn't build from source, couldn't find binary
This is just an observation about looking for the 0.93.3 rpm - I had problems building from source on mdk10 - ./Configure seemed to go OK, I accepted the defaults for anything I wasn't sure about but make baled out with errors re lib_gtk(?) & glade. But on http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=4467 only the deb and the src are listed, so I didn't know there was an rpm available til I checked here. (rpm installation was fine)

You must be running an old version. Try the newest 0.93.

Not so cool.
Running under Knoppix, gtk-gnutella did a random crash on me overnight.
Also, it couldn't tell when it had the whole thing....I checked the /tmp file and noticed it was done..so I aborted the still-running downloads...and lost the whole file due to the delete-fragment-on-abort feature. (Alert!! Future Feature Suggestion!) Maybe it should check the file-size on the server against the file-size on your machine when you abort, and pop up a window telling you how much of it you've got, and asking if you're sure...maybe if it's over 50% or something?
Or maybe it should just recognize that it's got the whole thing and remove the downloads. (amazing.)

Would also be nice if the main download window showed speeds.

Great client
It's stable and fast, but the GUI isn't as user friendly as it could have been. :) Small download, deps are met by a standard installation.

Re: I agree
Check out the newest version from CVS...will be released soon. Much has changed guiwise.

Re: gtk-gnutella is great
In order to be feature competitive with certian other Gnutella clients, gtk-gnutella would need to implement some missing features. Namely...

* Advertising banners
* Spyware
* Advertising banners
* Require you to give personal information in order to download
* Advertising banners
* Automatic spam generation to the address given when you registered for the download
* Advertising banners
* Tracking of what files you exchange with whom
* Did I mention Advertising banners?


If gtk-gnutella were to add at least some of these missing features, then it would be more on the same level as some other Gnutella clients.
