Previous version of aMule accessible through the repositories?

Added by Michael Holberton 5 months ago

Hi All,

I have installed Xfce 17.6.

How can I install the previous version of aMule so that I can see
if it is behaving in the same manner as the currently available
version? Is it accessible through the repositories?

The previous version functions normally under the Xfce 15.7 I have
on another partition.

Thanks, MTB.

Hi Bill,

I can't seem to find it in the repositories.

$ sudo emerge -pv "=net-p2p/amule-2.3.1" 
Password: 

Local copy of remote index is up-to-date and will be used.

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "=net-p2p/amule-2.3.1".

 * IMPORTANT: 1 news items need reading for repository 'gentoo'.
 * Use eselect news read to view new items.

Where else can I look for it?

Would either of the 2 following archives from the aMule Source Forge repository be usuable?

aMule-2.3.1.tar.bz2
aMule-2.3.1.tar.xz

https://sourceforge.net/projects/amule/files/aMule/2.3.1/

Could I copy the aMule files from the Xfce 15.17 installation in to the same locations on the 17.6 installation?

Thanks, Michael.
