Hasty installation

Please note that this installation method has the disadvantage that the crypto++ packages wont be updated automatically along with the rest of your system!

  • Download the crypto++ package that matches your arch here.
  • If you want to compile aMule yourself, download the crypto++-dev package that matches your arch here.
  • Use the command dpkg -i <filename> on the downloaded files as root, and you're done.
