Not quite.  What I and others do is run Frost (for example), which in the 
process of periodically checking for new messages on the Frost boards 
discovers more routes within Freenet.  Later, you should see that clicking 
on links results in more successes than failures (route not found / data 
not found).

This purpose of this list is to provide support to new users and give them a

me as well) to use the mailing lists appropriately and you've ignored 
almost *every* request that subscribers to the list have made (of which you

 Which is what I said. And yet, people have come forth with problems with
 1.4.2, even on windows. Probably not enough to indicate a firm
 correlation, let alone a causality, but seen that no similar problems as
 yet have occured with the 1.5.x, it's in any case a more sound advice to
 use that build.

You've missed the point completely. The error message was Could not find 
the main class. A java programmer knows this to be not an error with the 
virtual machine, but more of a classpath issue (the VM cannot find the 
class; it never actually *ran* anything).

Recommending that the user upgrade their VM is bad advice since that clearly 
isn't the issue. It's not too much to ask those who wish to contribute by 
answering support questions that they actually understand the nuances of 
Java.

And btw, it was with linux as well, in the past.

Only without the native BigInt libraries.. I experienced this very problem 
on Linux and found the problem disappeared after installing the updated 
freenet-ext. This is easier than upgrading the VM; but all of this is moot 
since he's on XP.

I can hardly see 'you will discover your own fault' as being more
supportive, in any case.

I first told him to refer to Toad's response in the original other thread, 
since the answer was there. I also don't recommend (although Toad might) 
that users upgrade to 1.5 just yet since I've seen problems related to nio 
and file locking, not to mention it's brand new and probably full of a new 
batch of bugs.

You can try updating the VM to the latest blackdown version, or if that

Yes it is.

You did notice he's running XP, and that the problems with 1.4.2 occur with

 I also  
 don't understand what you mean with 'place them under the folder'. Under
 windows, you don't have to place anything under the folder afterwards.
 You just install JVM 1.5.x (preferably), and you install freenet as
 described on the downloadpage of the main site, or on
 www.freenethelp.org. It auto-installs everything in both cases, and it
 should find the stuff and work like a sharm.
 well, in theory.

Since this is a 'support' list, be supportive and not critical, especially 
if you know little about Java. I suspect he attempted the install manually, 
and will quickly discover his own error.

Transient isn't that relevant anymore; the current build in CVS has all

So you won't notice much of a difference using this property on stable

 As a purely academic argument, Parrot and .NET both do those things now,
 and an API doesn't seem like it'd help that much with Freenet.  It's not
 the interface that's broken.

So in 1999 what should have been chosen?  Neither Parrot nor .NET were even 
around.  Parrot itself is another virtual machine, being used for Perl6.  
And .NET is currently Microsoft specific, the GNU implementation Mono still 
far enough behind to be considered a stable platform on Unix, or even 
Windows itself.

 though the browser is on another machine...

My node isn't running too well either, even after leaving it on for a few 
days.  Did you leave it running while properly opening up the port it uses 
for incoming connections in your firewall (if needed)?

 I was planning to make a permanent node, but I don't run it much
 anymore, because my brother games (so he needs high bandwidth and low
 latency), and Freenet is still the most costly service I run on that
 thing (in terms of CPU, bandwidth, etc.)

I have an 2.5G Athlon XP w/ 1G of RAM and I don't notice that it's running.  
It tends to play nice on my system regardless of my success in getting any 
data out of it.

 I know it's been mentioned before, but I'll state for the record that I
 think Java was a bad choice.  Rather than start a new flame war, I'd
 like to go read up on why it was chosen (any archives I should look at?).

That's a good idea.  A discussion based on backing out of Java at this point 
is totally pointless and would set the project back another X years.  I'm 
not sure my archives even go back that far, but the basis for choosing Java 
should be obvious; platform independence and a rich API that comes standard 
with the language.

 For the record, I have never, ever seen a java program load quickly, run
 even tolerably fast for anything beyond the most basic things, and I've
 never seen an open source implementation of Java work firsthand.  I
 don't like the syntax, but that's a personal issue -- I'd love to be
 proven wrong on this.

You don't have much experience with Java then.  Freenet is atypical of a 
Java application IMO.  I would argue that Java has found a nice home in the 
Web Services market (JSP, Servlets, EJB), but Freenet attempts to be all 
things that Java isn't necessarily good at (for starters, NIO is something 
not necessary for most web apps).

All this aside, when routing doesn't work in Freenet it can't be blamed on 
the language it was implemented in.  Broken routing can easily be coded in 
C, Python, assembler or whatever language you desire.  On the other hand 
being tied to a proprietary language like Java under Sun's control isn't 
helping matters much.  It's hoped this will change when one of the Free 
Software implementations of Java (gcj, Kaffe) becomes more stable wrt 
Freenet.

You *should* be able to shut down the node and restart it without much of a

 Speaking of which, have you tried Wine for this?  Do keep trying other
 projects as well, btw -- check out ardour.sf.net -- infancy?  Feels
 much smoother than Pro Tools to me.

Are you qualified to make a comparison between Ardour and Pro Tools?  Have 
you done extensive recording with Pro Tools and Sonar?  If/when Ardour 
reaches 3.x it may be able to compete with Sonar 3.  Currently it doesn't 
do MIDI sequencing, and all of today's music regardless of the genre uses 
sequencing (yes I know it's a DAW, but Sonar is a DAW and sequencer among 
other things).  This is all based on the experience I gained from recording 
3 albums on 2 different labels.

 For that matter, you might take some time to learn some code --
 math/programming and music skills go hand in hand, and it solves the
 problem of being an end-user.  Rather than whining about a missing
 feature, you go write it.  Not that whining is bad, just that coding can
 be a lot more fun and productive.

You didn't read my signature did you?  Check the C code in FCPtools and let 
me know if that shows programming skill.  I have a BA degree in CS and code 
for a living.

Now I also write music.  So during the day I program for a living.  I code 
on the Freenet Project for no money in my spare time, and I write  record 
songs for my current musical project (which doesn't pay much either).  Are 
you realistically saying that I should *also* code a DAW in addition to 
managing a band and composing?  Get real.

 Anyhow, if I were you, I'd have a separate computer (an older one) to
 use for stuff you want to be secure, and use your windows computer for
 stuff that you back up a lot.

Which I do.

 Try unplugging the cable?  I wouldn't trust XP any farther than I can
 sled on an install disk.  I'd either keep the cable unplugged from my
 first boot or assume it was already infected.

Then you know nothing about Windows.  I've been able to secure Windows since 
the NT days; and it was harder back then.  Microsoft has recently been 
forced to address the security issues inherent in their *install* of 
Windows.  Windows basically installs with everything wide open, so that all 
the end-user apps will work properly.  This doesn't mean you cannot tighten 
Windows, and the US government uses a heavily modified install of Windows 
that is quite tight; you can search for the documents on how this is done.

Being that this is a support list, support those who have questions in 
things you have answers for and ignore the rest.  And let those who wish to 
remain ignorant of the technical details remain so.

 Do yourself a favor, and don't run that software.

 Yes, I'm a Linux nut.  My attitude towards Windows boxes is:  almost all
 Windows boxes are so horribly insecure that I don't trust anything to
 them, including my full name.

I've been a Debian zealot for about 6 years, and before that a Slackware 
3.0 user, so I respect the position that Linux is great.

However, I must also use Windows; I am a musician who uses Cakewalk Sonar on 
XP; nothing like it exists for Linux, regardless of what some people say 
about the various sound projects still in their relative infancy.  I use 
Norton AntiVirus on Windows (not *their* firewall) and the XP firewall to 
simply block everything.  While working in Sonar I usually just disconnect 
the network connection from within XP.

I had an external firewall only that sat between the cable modem and the 
house LAN, but there was a problem; someone else on the LAN got a worm 
(they aren't as savvy) and I was running Windows without a firewall, and 
with file sharing turned on.  I lost a lot of time ;)

My point is; sometimes people run Windows.  If anyone could explain how they 
got their Norton Firewall running it would probably be helpful.

 Most secure solution: install FreeBSD (or some other BSD).  Second most
 secure soltuion: install Linux, preferrably Gentoo or Debian.

FreeBSD above Debian Stable? :)

 Practical solution:  find a very old computer to use as a Linux
 firewall/router.  Only firewall connections to your Windows boxes -- and
 this isn't even needed if you do NAT.  Set this up as your Freenet
 machine, and you don't have to worry about firewalls -- just allow
 connections to fproxy from internal network.  Run Firefox as a browser
 for Freenet.

This is great, but above some people's technical skills.  Freenet is easy 
enough for a novice to install, and we have many of them as our userbase to 
an extent.

I doubt many people here run SP2 since it's still in testing.  You should be 
running XP 1a if you expect to analyze Freenet's performance with any

How did you determine that Freenet ate up all your memory?  I don't know

Natively compiled languages more portable than Java?  Can you provide

Windows is a real problem in this area, as far as writing portable code is 
concerned.  Since windows only ships with POSIX.1, you'll have to rewrite 
everything that uses functions in the later revisions, which includes 
pthreads.  Even then the API's don't work equally well (for example, 
performing a stat() on an already opened file works fine on Linux, but on 
Windows returns an error).

I've found that debugging fcptools on Windows allows me to see more errors, 
and therefore has been my choice for testing since Windows doesn't allow as 
much freedom as Linux does, for better or worse.

Choosing Java in this respect eliminates these issues, and puts the 
platform independent effort squarely on someone else's shoulders, which 
in this case is the author of the JVM.  Can you name a natively compiled 
language that requires no third-party libs which comes close to J2SE?

[freenet-support] FCPTools and FCPLib Update

2004-05-26 Thread Jay Oliveri
-BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-
Hash: SHA1

I would like to announce new tarballs and complete documentation for 
FCPTools and FCPLib, the C library used internally by FCPTools.

Ironically this is just after Greg's announcement for FT; It's taken me some 
time to get the code right, and create the updated, reformatted 
documentation both for the fcptools and fcplib.

To download the latest source tarball:
- - http://freenetproject.org/snapshots/fcptools-unstable.tgz

To download the latest Win32 binaries (MSVC 6):
- - http://freenetproject.org/snapshots/fcptools-unstable-bin.tgz

For the updated documentation on FCPTools:
- - http://freenetproject.org/index.php?page=fcptools

For the *NEW* documentation on FCPLib:
- - http://freenetproject.org/index.php?page=FCPlib

/***/
Some major improvements have been made to the tools, namely:

*) All memory leaks have been found and fixed (using dmalloc).
*) Win32 specific file-handling problems have all been addressed.
*) Source code has been successfully compiled on Win32, Linux, BSD, Solaris 
and OS X.
*) A new utility 'fcpx' has been added to serve as a general-purpose node 
utility.
*) Get and Put code has been factored into separate routines that are 
re-used throughout FCPLib.
*) The FCPLib API has been settled on and will remain 95% the same for the 
upcoming 0.9  1.0 release.

Some limitations:
*) Splitfile support only for Insert (ClientPut only).
*) Metadata support incomplete.
*) fcpget can only handle 1 metadata chunk (needs to be tweaked to accept 
more than one on ClientGet).

Perhaps some other things are missing as well.  However since the memory 
leaks are gone the programs are running more predictable than ever (this 
isn't to say it was *easy* closing up all those leaks, but it's done).

If something doesn't work as advertised please let me know via email.  It 
should compile and run right out of the box, so anything less than this 
is an issue.  In the near future I'll announce a bugfix tarball.

Happy client writing :)

2) The project has no focus.

I don't agree with either point in absolute terms, but there's always room

Well some of these ideas worked on paper, and then didn't work when they

 With the whole PayPal thing how 
 long before ISPs start using *their* TOSes as weapons against freenet
 particpants.  There are a lot more ISPs than PayPal's around meaning
 there could be a lot more people that disagree with FreeNet's principles.

A valid point, one that the freenetproject cannot control.

 An ISP could do the exact same thing to someone participating in freenet
 either as a node or by participating on one of their mailing lists in a
 similar manner to how PayPal suspended the FreeNet donation account.  All
 they'd have to do is look through their MTA log and see the destination
 (they wouldn't even need to see the message data) then do their thing -
 that user is involved with something to do with open proxies - let's
 suspend his/her account for TOS violation

Currently they would just analyze traffic patterns, and even if the data is 
encrypted, they can make certain assumptions as to the kind of software 
making the analyzed requests (suspended bi-directional transferring of 
data, 24/7 = probable P2P app; type irrelevant).

So how will changing the mail server address all these issues?

Don't wait for someone to implement what you've suggested (allowing direct 
SMTP connections from a dynamic IP); there's enough work to do without 
building these kinds of things that just lead to constant maintenance.

There's nothing preventing you from using another SMTP gateway; it doesn't 
have to be your ISP, it just has to answer to a DNS reverse lookup (or 
something like that). GMane, Yahoo!, GMX, etc.

As for the rest I couldn't say.

 On the freebsd node (at the other IP number) the only way I've gotten it
 to use the other node is by making it the only entiry in the seedfile.
 This had the disadvantage that not only was is restricted to whereever
 the windows node could get to its available freenet routes, but to my

 suggested the node should be able to.  Nodes would connect and it even
 made outbound connections but it's list of available routes under the
 node status subsection still reported only one host in the routing table.
 I've ruled out firewall issues on both sides becuase both sides can
 negotiate outbound connections and receive inbound connections.  I've
 also double check in the environment and the node are reporting the
 correct WAN-side router IP numbers and access ports.

Yes, provided they are compatible builds.  There are two freenet's

When you say Each node has different routing tables so I'd like to be able

 Actually I have wondered a great deal about this myself. Why did Freenet
 break in the first place and - assuming that it happened through an error
 introduced by an update about a year ago - why wasn't the stable version
 reverted to the last working version, so we could have avoided paralyzing
 the entire net for a year? Even if the fix is allmost ready for the big
 launch, the other issues would be interesting to know about, just for
 historical reasons.

The last working version didn't work very well, especially on a larger 
scale.  There were overloading problems for nodes, and routing problems 
that next-gen routing were going to address that were made worse.

Added to this, the project recently agreed to have a stable as well as 
unstable network.  Before that, the network had stable and unstable nodes 
all attempting to work together.  This made improvements in the node 
difficult to measure when older nodes are part of the network.

Backing off to an ancient build also removes any and all improvements and 
bugfixes made all over the codebase, including some FCP related that I was 
interested in.

More than likely, things will stabilize again over time (perhaps shorter 
than everyone thinks) and we will have two separate networks and hopefully 
less complaining and whining on freenet-dev.  Overall things are looking 
better in the unstable network, and there's talk of merging some changes 
into the stable branch, but all this takes time and effort.  Keep in mind 
it's still 0.5, which implies it's not ready for 1.0 release.

Re: [freenet-support] uninstalling from debian

2003-12-03 Thread Jay Oliveri
To completely remove a Debian package, do:
- dpkg -P package name

The -P is for Purge.  This should work provided the Debian scripts were 
setup properly.

 $ apt-get uninstall freenet

 This seemed to get rid of a bunch of files, but for some reason freenet
 still starts up on boot and I have to kill its java process every time I
 turn on the computer. I searched on the archives of this list, but all
 that was mentioned was using an uninstall program on the windows
 distribution, which I don't think is something we linux people get. Can
 somebody more linux-savvy tell me how I can get rid of freenet?

[freenet-support] FCPTools; fcpput ready for testing

2003-02-11 Thread Jay Oliveri
Apologies; I used automake 1.5 instead of 1.4.  KDE requires 1.5 and I never 
downgraded since working with KDE.

I just tested the CVS head in a clean tree on sf's compile farm.. any 
problems let me know.

Source tarballs:
http://freenetproject.org/snapshots/fcptools-unstable.tgz

Pre-compiled Win32 binary:
http://freenetproject.org/snapshots/fcptools-bin.zip

fcpput --help for usage instructions.

  I'd like to announce that a new fcpput is currently working (more or
  less) with normal files as well as FEC encoded splitfiles.

 Does it use the node's FEC interface, or does it have its own?

Node's FEC interface for the time being.  Implementing C based FEC would be 
great in the longer term, and fit well into the current codebase.

Not necessarily.  Some Unix implementations clear /tmp on startup, some 
don't.  Are you sure all the files in there were created by Freenet?

Whatever OS you're running can be set easily to clear out any and all 
temporary directories on system boot.  I have to do this on my Win2K box 
under the 'Documents and Settings' dir, or IE will cache the entire 
Internet on my hard drive.

  Not necessarily.

 Are you sure?  What is the *point* if temporary files if they're not
 temporary? :-)   Freenet uses temporary files for numerous reasons but
 the bottom line has to always be, when it's no longer needed, it should
 be deleted.  Or reused.  Or whatever.

 Quick important question though ... when the original poster (Joel M.
 Baldwin) reported looking in the temp directory, I assume the refence was
 to the freenet store_n/temp folder rather than /tmp or C:\Temp or
 something generic ...

I have no idea what OS he's running, let alone which 'temp' directory he's 
specifically referring to.

btw my ./freenet/freenet/store_*/temp dir is empty, and I do not regularly 
delete the files manually.

Will Mr. Baldwin please elucidate?

Re: [freenet-support] FCP Tools

 Hi, Is FCP Tools current, and if so, is there anonymous CVS (read)
 access?

In CVS there are two branches: HEAD and FCP_0_4_7.  Download the 
FCP_0_4_7 branch (anon/read is allowed) for the current 
'stable' release.  If you prefer, try the tarball at:

http://freenetproject.org/snapshots/fcptools-stable.tgz

Unstable is currently under active development (incremental commits) 
and isn't guaranteed to do much of anything for the time being.

 I want to add freenet support to typechain, a library I wrote for VOS
 to automatically decode data or to fetch data from a URL. Since
 typechain is written in C++, I need (or strongly desire) a C or C++
 library that I can use...

ezFCPlib is the library you may want.  But it is functionally broken in 
the 'stable' tree.  There will be many improvements to come with the 
release currently being worked on; until then...

 To my knowledge, there is no firm evidence that Sun's 1.4 JVM is

I think the current problem is with the way start-freenet.sh starts the

starts w/out a problem.  Haven't tried figuring out why..

 My guess: the one dated 14 september in the

When I do 'ant jar' against the CVS sources, it automatically (using 
wget) downloads freenet-ext.jar from the snapshots directory.. 
specifically:

 THX   Marco

The branch fcp_0_4_7 in CVS I would consider the most stable so far.  
Currently, CVS HEAD will *not* compile until further notice.

Maybe this answers your question; however I'm not sure what patches you 
are referring to.
