How do I Install Lime Wire?


When I try to install Lime wire I get this message. j2re >= 1.4.1 is needed by LimeWire-free-4.14.0-0.i386

The thing is I do have it installed. Can you please help me? Also I am using Fedora Core.

If everything is as it should be you can try with
Code:
alternatives --config java
to set default JRE for your system.

Enter to keep the current selection[+], or type selection number:
