If you are using mldonkey 1.99b8 you won't be able to 
import an old tempdir with .part-files.

I figure it out by installing a normal edonkey client 
an setting the preferences because of the tempdir an 
incoming. Only tempdir is necessary really. At this 
point I left the standard entry "temp" there and made 
an softlink (ln -s <source> <linkname>) in the edonkey 
directory to my old tempdir with .part-files.

For example:
         rmdir temp
         ln -s /oldparts temp

After that I started the normal client for one time to 
let edonkey hash my old parts. Don't know if it is 
necessary, but I did. Then I killed it again.

Now I started the stable version of mldonkey 1.16 
where I was using the same main config entries like in 
1.99b8 (incoming, temp ...) and did a "telnet 
localhost 4000", "auth <passwd>" and the import 
command for old configs "import <maindir of edonkey>".
I think I got a problem with the import function of 
mldonkey 1.99b8 and then I did it with 1.16, but I 
don't know it anymore. Better do it like I did.

For example:
              vi downloads.ini (do main config)
              ./mldonkey &
              telnet localhost 4000
              auth <passwd> (if password is set)
              import /edonkey

By the command "import ..." my old config was read and 
all .part-files where imported into the new set 
tempdir. Only *.part.met files are kept in the dir of 
old parts. You can delete them.

!!! Attention !!!:
Please save away new current downloads in tempdir and 
your actual files.ini, if you had some running, before 
you import the old .parts! After import copy your 
saved away downloads back into the tempdir.

At last copy your new files.ini including the whole 
entries of the old downloads into the dir of mldonkey 
1.99b8 and merge it with the backuped files.ini, if 
you have a backuped.

Now you are ready to start your mldonkey 1.99b8 with 
your full download archive!!!

Hope you will be happy!!!
