What do these columns mean?
Id = File Id # (as reported by mldonkey)
Network = P2P Network
Filename = Filename
Size = Size
Downloaded = Bytes downloaded
% = Per cent complete
Sources = (#Active Sources) #Sources
Avail = Availability of the remaining parts of the file
Rate = Download speed/rate
Chunks = # of chunks complete
ETA = Estimated Time of Arrival (remaining / current rate)
Priority = File priority
Last = Last seen Complete
Age = Age of download
ETA2 = ETA based on past performance ((remaining * age) / downloaded)
Clients = # Clients as reported by mldonkey
Sources2 = # Sources as reported by mldonkey
Remaining = Bytes remaining to be downloaded
Comments = # of file comments (in Rt-click->File Details)
User = File User/Owner
Group = File Group
What is the difference between Sources and Sources2?
The Sources column represents the number of "Clients" sent by the core to the gui, as well as how many of those "Clients" are actively transferring data (as can be seen in the Clients table if you "Toggle clients table" from the Download's view toolbar). To save memory, MLDonkey stores inactive sources in a secondary structure called "Sources" that are smaller than "Clients", and does not send these structures to the gui. Sources2 represents the total number of "Clients" and "Sources" as reported by the MLDonkey core.
Why are some files coloured red?
Preferences>sancho: Main>Transfers>Recolor files that contain "Fake" in names/comments.
Preferences>sancho: Display>Transfers>Contains "Fake" color
Why doesn't the transfer table stay sorted?
Preferences>sancho>display>Transfers>Maintain sort order.
It is off by default since it might cause added 'flickering' as files often change sort order
The clients table doesn't seem to sort alphabetically by state
Clients are sorted by Queue ranking first. (clients that have notified you of a queue number for their queue should always be at the top)
Colours are similar to this.
Drag & Drop
This only seems to work on win32. You can drop links from your web browser on to thedownloads table to have them added to the downloads list. Or, drag links from the download listand paste them into a text area.
Colours & fonts
These are configurable in Preferences->Display>Transfers
mldonkey has a built in preview script that can be run. If you prefer to spawn a local app to preview files you can configure it with these settings.
Since the mldonkey core might be on a remote machine, and you might be using an nfs/samba mount toview your temp files, you must input the mldonkey temp directory as the working directory. Or you can usethe preview.bat (in distrib directory) as your preview executable (which points to the directory).
In addition to specifying an app to use to preview files locally, you can also select different apps to spawn based on file extension. The main preview app must be filled in -- it becomes the default
input an extension and a program and "Add" it to the list
select an entry from the list and press "Remove" to remove it
