Do you know about a small p2p program that is small, do not need java or other huge libs, and fits to puppy. It's important with a userfriendly gui as the user is complete newbie.

Opera 9 would maybe solve this topic?

the smallest one I know:
Mute
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=7388

Still somewhat huge due to libwxgtk, but just 1/10 of Java.

When we talk about p2p and java dependencies, do we then talk about Dotpup - Sun java 1.5.0 (17 megs compressed) or pupget java-jamjikescairo (9 megs compressed).

What is the difference?

I did a search on freshmeat.net and came up with 'transmission' which I have packaged into a dotpup (from rpm) and attached below. The source code is available on the homepage but that requires 'jam' instead of 'make' so I took the shorter route (at least for now). See links and screenshot for more details.

Homepage
Freshmeat project page

This program requires libcrypto.so.5. I think puppy has libcrypto.so.0.9.7 (at least mine did, but i have all kinda xxxx.sfs files loaded). To satisfy this dependancy do the following (assuming libcrypto is alread in puppy)

ln -s /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.0.9.7 /usr/lib/libcrypto.so.5

After installing the dotpup, you can run transmission via Start -> Dotpups - run-transmission.

Let me know how well (or not) it works.

java-jamjikescairo is probably not the one you are looking for Smile
There's also a Blackdown java dotpup which is smaller in size.

And Transmission looks good Cool

Please ignore this post I don't think it was the dotpup's fault
I'm just leaving the post so you understand the next two posts in this thread.

==========================================
Warning!

This dotpup does something that no dotpup should do:

It changed the focus mode from click to sloppy. Why would a transmition dotpup do that?

I think I got confused by a coincidence.

After Installing the dotpup JWM flashed and it started using the sloppy focus (where windows get focus based on the mouse position).

I then went to check the .jwmrc and saw that the focus mode was sloppy, I assumed that the dotpup had changed it. It wasn't until later that I realized that ~/.jwm/jwmrc-personal sets it to "click".

Bottom line, somehow JWM stopped using the jwmrc-personal and reverted to the settings in .jwmrc

I will edit my previous post. Sorry for the confussion.

Unfortunately, not all of jwm's behavior can be explained. It's sometimes a strange beast that is still in the process of being tamed. It's getting very close to stable, but I wouldn't consider it there yet.
