 Hi!
 
 Anyone using FreeNet on Debian? I've tried for six hours to make the .deb-package do 
ANYTHING, but so far it has not yet started to listen to port . It's running 
though, I can see it with 'ps ax'. (No luck in pointing a browser to 
http://127.0.0.1:, and netstat shows that nothing is listening to that port 
either.)
 
 I've tried every JAVA interpreter in Debian, with the same result. No luck. I've set 
log level to debug, but nothing useful is written to the log file.
 
 Does ANYONE run this thing succesfully?
 
 Appreciate any help I can get!

1. Forget the debian package. I have tried all of them since 0.4.0 and
none ever really ran :(
2. Get Sun's JRE 1.4.1, extract it to /usr/local and adapt
/etc/alternatives/java to point to the java executable in
/usr/local/jre1.4.1; analoguely do the same with the java-plugins, if
you need them. JRE1.4.1 is not included in Debian, because its not free,
but it's running perfectly on Debian.
3. If you had freenet installed via apt-get you should already have a
user freenetu. You should chown the freenet stuff to freenetu and run
the start shells by 'su freenetu' and ./start-freenet.sh or you can
build  a start script in /etc/init.d.
If you are really paranoid you can also build a chroot environment for
the local JRE and the freenet jars.

Hi! Thanks for replying!

 1. Forget the debian package. I have tried all of them since 0.4.0 and
 none ever really ran :(

That's sad. Maybe filing a few bugreports would help. I'll try to do that.

 2. Get Sun's JRE 1.4.1, extract it to /usr/local and adapt
 /etc/alternatives/java to point to the java executable in
 /usr/local/jre1.4.1; analoguely do the same with the java-plugins, if
 you need them.

Any particular reason I should need plugins? (I'm a freenet newbie.)

 JRE1.4.1 is not included in Debian, because its not free,
 but it's running perfectly on Debian.

There's not even an installer?

 3. If you had freenet installed via apt-get you should already have a
 user freenetu.

I do.

 You should chown the freenet stuff to freenetu and run
 the start shells by 'su freenetu' and ./start-freenet.sh or you can
 build  a start script in /etc/init.d.

Now this is why I really *tried* to make the .deb work; I get a /etc/init.d script for 
free. Maybe I can use the one in the deb...

 If you are really paranoid you can also build a chroot environment for
 the local JRE and the freenet jars.

I'm not. :)

Thanks!

IMHO it's not a real bug, but the problem that the free JREs are not
100% compatible, and that the .debs are never as actual as the freenet
CVS.

Your browser's Java-plugin

Yes. Copy it before uninstalling the deb, and adapt it to start your new freenet

.

You're welcome.

[freenet-support] Failed bigtime with Debian/FreeNet

Hi!

Anyone using FreeNet on Debian? I've tried for six hours to make the .deb-package do

Does ANYONE run this thing succesfully?
