Installing Nicotine (SoulSeek client) on SuSE 10.2, x86_64

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

For some reason the gobject package version that was installed was the 32
bit one (in Yast, select "versions" tab).  Selecting the 64 bit version
and reloading didn't seem to work until I also reloaded the gobject-dev
(which was already 64 bits).

You have this problem if /usr/bin/pygtk-demo gives the error "No module
named gobject" even though gobject appears to installed in Yast.

Motivation for doing this is the abusive treatment of Pandora by RIAA.  I
was about to go buy an album this morning and then remembered I had sworn
to download instead.

Museeq, Music

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Nicotine didn't work that well, although that may have been because I
didn't have the firewall configured correctly.

You need to open a port for incoming connections for Soulseek.  It can be
anything, but the traditional value is 2234.

So anyway, I thn trieed Museek (actually, I think it's Museek+).  You need
to install (on SuSE) two separate packages - there's a server and a
client.

To configure the server run musetup.  Then start the server with museekd. 
Once the server is running you can connect with a client (museeq).

The system is grouped by chat rooms, and while the chat isn't that great
they provide a way to find people whose files you might want.  So you go
to a suitable chat room and then start listing (via the UI) what files are
available for those users.  You can also privately message people.

Not everyone who has data makes them available, and even if data are
available there may be a queue of people to download - you can query the
UI for the size of the queue.

Eventually, by clicking around, looking at what is availabl, and chatting
with people in the rooms or privately, you get access to what you want and
download it.  Downloading is slow, but works well enough (you need to
manually restart things sometimes).

There's a culture of blocking people who don't provide anything.  As a new
user it's easy to appear that way - you might "seed" your collection with
some ripped CDs (incidentally, everything is MP3, not ogg).

The selection of music is surprisingly wide.  Often it's grouped by
directory/album.
