Adding a System User to run
This has worked out very well on a Debian woody system.
First I added a system user named mldonkey:
Then I \"became\" this user:
su - mldonkey
Upon which I checked out the source code from cvs:
Next comes configuring and building the binary:
./configure --disable-multinet --enable-batch --disable-gui --enable-fasttrack --enable-bittorrent && make
For convenience I copied the binary to the home dir of mldonkey:
cp mldonkey/mlnet .
Now we are ready to start it:
All configuration can be done through various interfaces. Until g2gui is done I choose the web interface.
If you find errors on this page, please
- kindly correct them, and
- drop me a note: I am housetier
Thank you very much!
