Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: Is it "sole" like the shoe or "sole" like the fish?
A: If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are.

Q: Where can I download SoleSeek?
A: Currently, SoleSeek is in development. This means that the project team does not yet believe it is stable enough or feature-complete enough for a general release. This is not to say that you cannot run it. It simply means that binary distributables are not yet available.

Q: I don't want to wait for a packaged release. How do I get the source code so I can compile and run it now?
A: First, a warning. You will be downloading in-progress code which may contain major bugs. If you pay attention to the devloper mailing list, you might have a better general idea of the code stability.

If you are still interested, check the build instructions

Q: It's hard to tell what is going on. The program does not seem to give enough status information.
A: Status information is rather weak in the UI at this time. Most of the important or interesting status messages are written to the console.

Q: How do I activate the console so that I can see all of the status messages?
A: The console application is located on your hard drive in the /Applications/Utilities folder. Launch it before launching SoleSeek so that you can get all of the status and debug messages.

Q: I think I found a bug.
A: First, check that you are running the latest code: check out or update the source code, then rebuild it, then run it. Next, consult the open bug database to see if somebody else has already reported the issue. If nobody has reported it, feel free to enter the bug report. Try to include as much information as possible. Do not simply say "it crashed." Explain the exact circumstances under which it crashed: What were you doing at the time? What had you done recently? Were you downloading? Uploading? Were search results coming in? Were you even connected to the server? Try to include enough detail so that a developer may be able to reproduce the circumstances under which the bug occurred.
