Move the incoming directory from mldonkey
If you are using mldonkey on a Linux machine, maybe you ran into the problem that the incoming directory uses too much space. If this happens and because of this, the partition is full, then mldonkey will shut down. So it is best to move the incoming directory to a large partition.
sudo ln -s /data/data/sdb1/incoming /var/lib/mldonkey/
This will create a soft link into /var/lib/mldonkey pointing to /data/data/sdb1/incoming where you moved the directory to. (this is just an example, please change the directories so it fits your system).
cd /var/lib/mldonkey/incoming sudo chown -R mldonkey:mldonkey *
sudo /etc/init.d/mldonkey-server start
Note: This works for the temp directory (where download will be until they are completed) as well.
