Please read the following important message

Thank you all for your interest in Adeona.

Please note that Adeona is an ongoing project and research prototype.

Adeona depends on OpenDHT, which runs on PlanetLab. OpenDHT has been experiencing some problems. We are working on a new, still privacy-respecting version, that does not depend on OpenDHT/PlanetLab. It may take some time to have this solution in place. In the meantime, if you would like to show support for the OpenDHT project, please visit its website or send an e-mail to the OpenDHT mailing list at if you notice problems.

For now, we apologize for the problems with using Adeona, stemming from the problems with OpenDHT, but we look forward to the new version being out as soon as possible. If you would like to receive announcements about Adeona, please subscribe to our RSS feed available on the main page and throughout the website.

Thank you for your patience, The Adeona Team

  3. Click on the "Applications" icon in the left side of this screen (under the name "yoshi" in this image). After you do this, you'll see a whole bunch of new folders and icons on the right side of this window. You may have to move the scroll bar on the right up and down, but look for a folder named "Utilities" and double click on it.

  4. Again, you'll see a new list of folders and icons on the right. Please find the one that says "Terminal" as shown here.

  6. Now type the following commands into the window show in the previous step (you could also copy and paste these commands into the Terminal window). Please note that you will be asked for your login password after you type the first command. The program asking for your password is "sudo", a systems administration utility provided by Apple.
    sudo launchctl stop edu.washington.cs.adeona
    sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/edu.washington.cs.adeona.plist
    sudo rm -rf /usr/local/adeona
    sudo rm -rf /Applications/Adeona
    sudo rm /Library/LaunchDaemons/edu.washington.cs.adeona.plist
    sudo rm -rf /Library/Receipts/adeona.pkg
  7. That should do it.
