Building the iFolder client.
I will attempt to build a client with Bonjour support on my Edubuntu 6.06-1 laptop, and will
also check to see if a 3.5 client is available for another laptop which is running openSuSE 10.1.
I started to build the client, and even though i installed the required packages, i still got
errors that they were missing.
The cuplrit being libflaim. 'checking for LIBFLAIM... configure: error: Package requirements
(libflaim >= 4.8.0) were not met:'
After unsuccessful a couple attempts to fix this issue, i went against the grain and used alien
to convert the available .rpm packages to .deb packages. They converted without any issues, and before i installed them i removed the previuos packages thet were installed and proceded. I installed log4net, libflaim, simias, simias-bonjour, ifolder3, and nautilis-ifolder3, without any complaints.
I used the web browser interface to create an account for a test-user and initially assigned
'/var/lib/simias/SimiasFiles/c02dff9e-f948-4a65-bb9a-1afeb77fa353/, as a test location, which created the above cryptic folder name.
After installation of the client, i found the ifolder3 icon under programming in the menu items.
I clicked the menu icon, and the ifolder3 icon appeared in the notification area. I right
clicked on it and was presented with a couple of options, iFolders, Account Settings,
Synchronization Log, Preferences, Help, About, and Quit.
I started with Account Settings, this opened a window for configuring Accounts and Preferences.
Then i clicked the help icon, it open in firefox and repeatedly could not finish connecting
to something, eating up bit of CPU cycles and memory in the process, until i clicked the stop
This still happens off and on.
