I'm a big fan of the ed2k network because of the rare gems you can find there. Unfortunately, the applications to access the ed2k network seem to be nearly impossible for me to figure out on the mac. I downloaded the mldonkey application (to be quite honest, I'm not even sure what it's called). The instructions indicate: The easiest way to start mldonkey for the moment is by installing this script made by Sawtooth ( Thanks man! ). • Download MLdonkey_Launcher on the homepage • Decompress then run the installer that will install the Script menu and the mldonkey_launcher script. this one should then be in the menu. • Now, to launch mldonkey, easy : just choose Launch_MLdonkey in the menu and it's done! yes However, the link to this mldonkey_launch are no longer valid. I tried to use mlmac as the GUI for this program, but I don't think I configured the settings correctly. I can open mlmac, but I can't connect to any network. I'd like to avoid the mess of going through Terminal and simply connect to mlmac directly. Could someone kindly help a new Mac user out? I'm so lost with all this talk of CVS and whatnot...I just want to be able to run the client as simply as I did on Windows! I downloaded both mlmac and xdonkey which seem similar, although mlMac seems to be the better of the two with it's multi-network connecting capabilities. However, neither one can connect to the daemon. I'm running these programs on an Intel Dual Core Mac--could that be why? I don't know enough to setup or configure the daemon manually. What do I need to tweak to get this working? With xMule, I get the following message; "The daemon could not launch out. In 'Daemon' menu, test the option 'Re-initialize the daemon' then launch again. If the problem persists try to change the daemon with the option of 'Daemon' menu." Similarly, when I start mlMac, I get a message which reads "Please wait while mlMac launches the mlnet daemon and establishes a connection with it." This goes on indefinitely. I have no idea what to do. Could you or some kind sole please walk me through this?
