Sorry, I've never had this problem myself and I don't have the time to Google on it today but I'll look at it tomorrow. In the meantime, you're not alone http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...003/10/4/49515 http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...03/10/3/104809

Make it executable by typing in the terminal:

chmod a+x LimeWireLinux.bin

Then type in:

./LimeWireLinux.bin

Well...it seems that java.compiler=NONE is a big issue. Install a java compiler and see if that fixes the errors. That's the only thing that I see in your errors.

# java -version
java version "1.4.2_04"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_04-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_04-b05, mixed mode)

I think if you install the jsdk instead of the jre that may fix your problem. Limewire is looking for a java compiler, not just the runtime environment version.

No, the re means runtime environment, it allows you to run java programs. A java compiler allows you to compile (is that the right word?) a java program from the code. You should be able to install Limewire with just the jre. I don't use Limewire myself (gtk-gnutella is the one for me) so to refresh my memory I rebooted into Fedora core yesterday and installed Limewire there. It worked fine with just j2re-1_4_2_03-linux-i586.bin . Though that is of course not the .rpm , it's the self extracting binary. So I would suggest you try the self-extracting java binary, or as Limewire is giving you so much trouble, try compiling Gtk-Gnutella.

Andrew, i downloaded Gtk-Gnutella and having some problems.
# bunzip2 gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar.bz2
# tar zxvf gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar.bz2
tar (child): gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2

# tar zxvf gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar.bz2

That's your problem. Do it like this: # tar zxvf gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar

You don't untar a file with a gz or bz2 extension.

now im getting a different message

# tar zxvf gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
[root@localhost freeze]# tar zxvf gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1

in the past i have used tar -zxvf, should i add the negative sign? whats the difference

you are trying to uncompress a .tar not a .tar.gz..... "tar -xvf blah.tar" the z is for gzip.

tar xjf gtk-gnutella-0.93.3.tar.bz2
cd gtk-gnutella-0.93.3
./Configure

the Configure script is quite verbose and it asks lots of questions so it can be hard going. You may need to install some stuff to get it to go. Good luck.
