    Anyone else use it? I found it today and I'm finding it to be pretty awesome. Couple of things that impressed me:

    1) Amazing configure script. Instead of telling you you're stupid when you're missing a dependency it asks you if it should download and install it for you. Genius. All configure scripts should be like this.

    2) Multiple interfaces is very cool. The web interface didn't work so well for me, but still it's a nice idea.

    I haven't tried that yet, when I need donkey/mule I just use xmule. Seems to work great for me.

    BTW, apt-get > all dependencies

    Ah, see mlDonkey does more than just Mule, it also does FastTrack, Gnutella, BitTorrent, and a couple other ones I'm not familiar with.

    And what is this apt-get of which you speak?

    :slap: emerge is the best. ;)

    # emerge kde
    # emerge gnome
    # emerge gcc

    and boom, it upgrades all dependencies needed too.
