./ name of your file .bin should work. if not here's a search to a few other ?'s that may have a more direct answer.

You may also need to chmod the file:
chmod a+x filename.bin
And then:
./filename.bin
HOWEVER....

Limewire is really not the way to go for P2P on Linux. Check into giFT or something else available. Run a search on this website for one of the many threads that contain plenty of options that are far better than limewire.

Cool

i could be wrong here, but, it looks like a java dependancy. check this out.

http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/mandrak...pp.noarch.html

as i stated, i could be wrong. this however is the only link i pulled from google/linux w/ your error.
good luck.

Java and Limewire

Limewire is written in Java and requires the Java Runtime Enviornment from Sun Microsystems. I was having the sam problem as you. Your thread helped me a lot. You just need to down load the JRE from Sun and it should work. It is a .bin though.
