I've had luck with the terminal, so I haven't tried the GUIs, yet.STEPS! 1. download->' a) mldonkey b) cocodonkey c) donkey-o-mat 2) unstuff each one if they dont do so by themselves, if the donkeyomat looks like a word file unstuff it manually... 3) place mldonkey file in the applications folder 4) try dragging the mldonkey file into the donkey o mat once youve unstuffed this last one (omat) this should open the terminal and crap but dont mind that.... 5) open cocodonkey, preferences, locate your mldonkey 6) try connecting to the daemon 7) quit cocodonkey, quit terminal, now everytime u open cocodonkey it should do everything by itself... SHOULD... thats pretty much how i got it to work and its working 24/7 now guys, try reading the read me files.... the files in the temp folder inside the mldonkey folder get moved to the incoming folder by just pressing the green arrow inside the white boc in cocodonkey... no need to rename files... converts movies too! the search window stops working after like 3 or 4 searches... solution: quit and restart the app, it autoresumes flawlessly... NOW YOU KNOW! happy downloading! VIVA DONKEY!
