Ok, How do i run a file in linux RH 9 ? I downloaded limewire extracted it and when i try to run the file i get a bunch of text. I tried to search for an answer online but cannot find it. Somebody please help me!
okay..now you know that you need java runtime environment (http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_manual.jsp ) in order to install limewire? You should install that and then go to the console and type
cd LimeWire folder
and thn there should be a readme file which will help you about how to use the program.
chmod a+x j2re-1_4_1_<version number>-linux-i586-rpm.bin
The script displays a binary license agreement, which you are asked to agree to before installation can proceed. Once you have agreed to the license, the install script creates the file j2re-1_4_1_<version number>-linux-i586.rpm in the current directory.
Become root, and then type this:
rpm -iv j2re-1_4_1_<version number>-linux-i586.rpm
replace the version number with the one you downloaded. I got all this from http://www.java.com/en/download/help...sp#install-pkg
I suggest you read this if my explanation doesnt work.
yes the ./executable didn't work for me either so i just typed executable as it was, i was logged in as root though .
Question, could these "problems" be apart of the later Kernels ?
Seems as we're regressing instead of progressing..

hmm..okay now install this and look for your installation, it should be in /usr/java if not than type updatedb in console and then:
locate java | more
to find where it is. After you have found it you type this in console->
where /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2/bin is the location where my java commands are, so you will need to modify it according to your installed files. You can add that line to your .bashrc if you want it to be permanent. After you do that just return to where LimeWireLinux.bin is and type ./LimeWireLinux.bin that should do it.
