Post Gtk-gnutella is ancient
When I run gtk-gnutella (version 0.96.8-1) I get this message:

This version of gtk-gnutella is pretty old. Please visit http://gtk-gnutella.sourceforge.net/ and update your copy of gtk-gnutella.

When I try to update it I get dependency problems. Is it possible to get an updated version in the CR? Alternatively, is there another good p2p app? They seem thin on the ground right now.

All I want to do is make available the CC licensed music I have, so something light that can run unobtrusively in the background would be good.

Thanks.

I don't claim to know anything about this kind of stuff, but what's wrong with KTorrent?

Does ktorrent do non-torrents? I'm already using it for isos, etc, but I don't know that much about it either.

See, I told you I didn't know nuthin'. I thought gnutella was a torrent client.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

I've used Frostwire, and it's not bad, but I don't see it in the repos. It's a way to go if necessary, though.

Thanks Uncle Mark. I installed an etch version from there and it immediately asked me to upgrade when I ran it. Jumping a couple of hoops I got the upgrade to work and now it's sharing my CC music. At least I think it is. It's a little sparse on the information compared to gtk-gnutella, but it's something anyway.

Getting back to the original request, I'm building gtk-gnutella for the M11 CR right now. I had to undo the multiarch stuff, which is going to be default in Wheezy.

It also looks like it should build in earlier versions of MEPIS, too.
