amule doesn't work anymore!!!

Hola everyone!
I installed aMule one month ago , (never used eMule, I hate computers before discovering linux world) and it worked really good. When I set the donw and upload limits very high I could transfer till 400-500k!
So a pity , it resisted just 3 days and then crashed down, first my amule could just upload and suddenly it could nor connect.
I searched in the forum several times and as I didn't found nothing similar I finally decided to post this.
I don't know, maybe that's me that I'm so stupid.......I recentl uploaded the last ubuntu's version and aMule 2.1.2 . It say " not valid server founded in server list" and "not connected:kad off"
I just put this server list but it doesn't work: http://ocbmaurice.dyns.net/pl/slist.pl?download/server-best.met
what should I do?

thanks!!!

Quick Apache2+SSL, MySQL5, PHP5 Dapper Install

1. Open Adept and PURGE any installed Apache, Apache2, PHP4, PHP 5
(important)

While in in Adept go ahead and install MySQL 5

If you want nice management tools go ahead and install kmysqladmin and
mysqladmin (I use these both)
OR once Apache is installed and working you can install PHPMyAdmin from
Adept.

2. Close Adept and open a terminal and execute (answer yes to any output
questions)

$ sudo su
*enter your password*

*Now we can install Apache 2*

$ apt-get install apache2 apache2-common apache2-doc apache2-mpm-prefork
apache2-utils libapr0 libexpat1 ssl-cert

*Now we install PHP 5 (add any php libs you need; although, this covers
most.)*

apt-get install autoconf automake1.4 autotools-dev libapache2-mod-php5 php5
php5-common php5-curl php5-dev php5-gd php-pear php5-ldap php5-mhash
php5-mysql php5-mysqli php5-snmp php5-sqlite php5-xmlrpc php5-xsl
php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-pspell php5-gd

3. Open a file manager, I use Krusader in root mode. You must be root to

Installing open-suse 10.1/fedora core 5

    The 1st Distro i ever installed and used was suse 10.0 ... So now i used ubuntu for about a half-year it was time for me to uninstall windows and dualboot with suse 10.1 i thought.Well the installation look nice, i didn't see any difference with 10.0 (only the booting).But when i installed my system (i choose to install a base gnome system) the trouble begon.Possitive aspects of Suse -> Ubuntu:- Uses YaST2, what is a GREAT Conf tool!Negative aspects:- You cannot change the loginscreen graphically.- You use RPM, so no apt-geting here.- And a lot of other things.It just was (i think) less freedom then in Linspire... So i tested my other cd that i have left... a Fedora Core 5 install cd.So i 1st cleaned up the partition of suse, put the cd into my cd-player and...NOTHING! it just followed up to the GRUB screen.. and booted with ubuntu...Now i am still searching for a rpm distro...
