after editing .bash_profile, it is now permanently in my path, but it is still pulling up the 'not found' error - although it is clearly there.

Edit /etc/profile and add it to the path there, then logout and back in again.

That's a different error message. When you type $PATH it does show the path to java, so that's getting found.

So from there, you wanna check permissions on the java and it's sub-directories.

Getting java installed was a huge feat for me too, however, in looking back I wish I hadn't wasted my time on it. I learned very little from it; and like you, just wanted it for 1 application: Limewire. You can still install the browser plugin and not have to worry about having Java in your PATH. But, since you've already got it in your path...

It might very well be a bug with the Limey installer. Try to find an older version and see what happens.

Cool

well I added it to profile as well, logged out/in - same error. removed it from the .bash and it still gave the same error...

Now, another user has spoken of how hard java was to install on his system. *laughs*

Maybe this is too much of a task for me?

Well, I went to a page on yahoo, I don't remember which one, and a java applet asked to be loaded - Mozilla auto-installed the java plug in for me. Nice... But that doesn't solve my problem.

One day I will figure out how to do this.

I am going to look now at the permissions and see what I can come up with.

The error isn't something to worry about, if you don't like the error use echo:
echo $PATH

The error will go away.

Cool

Permissions are read and execute for everyone - write for owner

All permissions are the same for every file in the java directory (including their folders)

Interesting how the error disappears like that. *scratches head*

I went ahead and installed DCGui, and it works like a dream.

Yeah, I felt the same way It's really great if you are sharing 20+GB of files, then you get on the good servers.

Cool

Yeah, I've got (and am sharing) about 40gigs of music...

Any suggestions as to a good media player? (Other than xmms - i like xmms, but it has a poor playlist editor)

Maybe just a playlist editor?

I'm looking for something with support of over 10,000 songs - I tried FreeAMP, and I like it's playlist editor (though it is still lacking), but it won't support over about 2,000 songs or so for some reason, and if I try to load up all 10k, then it crashes the program. lol.

No, but if you find one, please, let me know. I do like xmms, and was unaware it had a poor playlist editor. What kind of features is it that you are looking for? I use to use MusicMatch in winbloze way back, but it's been a while; I do remember the great abilities of it though. Great product, I wish it's port to linux was more genuine (maybe it is now, though it wasn't when it first came out; pure wine).

Check www.freshmeat.net for ideas. Also check out mp3blaster, I've used it in the past for ~4-5k songs and it seemed to work fine (although I had no playlist needs, just random and repeat )

Cool

6 hours of simlar forum queries, reading instructions, readmes etc.
but i think the problem is this:
you can set up the correct path to /usr/java/j2re1.4.2/bin/java
but (for some reason) one of the other java apps are being called.
thus:

[timm@localhost dwnloads]$ whereis java
java: /usr/bin/java /usr/include/java /usr/share/java

- - -
so i did this on my machine running redhat 9.
downloaded j2re1.4.2 from sun.
executed the binary (sh (javafilename).bin) which turns it into a RPM.
as root: rpm -Uvh (javafilename).rpm
as root: pico /etc/profile
added the line PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2
right before this line export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC

exit root
log out and back in
or type export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2

(although this is mentioned everywhere in these forums goto your java directory and do a 'pwd' then type echo $PATH and compare and make sure they are the same)

---
ok,
now again, i haven't exhausted all possibilites of what might work,
but i do know what just worked for me moments ago after hours of messing about :

i didn't download the Limewire.bin file
instead i clicked on the link for 'other systems'
and downloaded a tgz file.
make sure you make a directory for that file before doing the 'tar zxvf filename.tgz' b/c it hasn't been done properly (nor has any faqs/installation help as far as i can see) and it will make a mess of whatever directory you untar/zip it...

followed directions in the README that came with it.
(i forget, but i don't think it was the usual ./configure, make, ((i use a program called chkrootkit which instead of 'make install' putting stuff all over your system and making it (heh heh) impossible to uninstall, this sweet app makes an RPM from a tar.gz, tgz , etc , file)) )

and the punch line?
this command,
which basically forces the use of the 'new' java, and the java program! sounds simple/logical enought but was more like magic when i typed it in.

/usr/java/j2re1.4.2/bin/java -jar RunLime.jar

(this b.t.w is stated in the README that comes with the tgz file. except it didn't have the path info. i chucked that in myself. now i'm so proud. ;/ um, no not really, but i am gonna go and see if this LimeWire thing is even any good.)

((its not really, but at least doesn' use up CPU.))

pps- i did get kazaa emulating under WINE in redhat 9.
that was the day before yesterday.
8 hours.
and it wasn't really worth it.
terrible slow an took up 90-99 % of my used PIII 600M poo computer.

gotta run.

have to figure out a nicer way of killing this java+app...
good luck

you can always use binchunker, it creates an ISO that you can burn to a CD
