Yum is used for updates AND installs. What you're doing wrong, might I humbly suggest, is not reading the "man" pages - i.e. "man yum" will show you that is can install as well as update and remove packages. Try
Code:
yum install limewire
This is of course assuming that "limewire" is available from the yum repositories for your distro. If it isn't, then you'll need to find an RPM package and install it manually, or download the source and compile your own.

You're not running Debian, so go with "Other"...

Anyhow, you may find Frostwire does better job and is FOSS.

Download LimeWireOther.zip.

Open a terminal window and unzip the LimeWireOther.zip file.

Change to the LimeWire directory and type

./runLime.sh

This will install and setup limewire.


Note: The runLime.sh script is used to setup and run limewire. The second time you run it, it will not repeat the setup section, It will just run the limewire program.

Also, make sure java is installed and in your PATH environment.

Question Plse "correct" me if I'm wrong.....

Afternoon, (well it is here, LOL!)

At last word, I thought Limewire was a P2P music downloader that a LOT of folks used to "illegally" download MP3's, despite their saying they wouldn't, which drew the ire of the "Music Mafia" (aka, the RIAA). Now, I've been outta touch since mid-December on this. Has it changed where you CAN download music, without getting into trouble?

I remember a case where some Native American, single mom downloaded a couple of kiddie songs, the RIAA went after her and sued her into oblivion. I think they got her house, car, and everything she will make on her minimum wage job for Life, the low-life basstads!

Since it's a "civil" case, no one has "challanged" the RIAA to prove financial harm came to the artist, they supposidly represent. I can remember reading where old Rock-N-Roll artist tried to sue for back royalities, but never got a dime and died penniless. That's a shame.

Now, IF, I'm wrong, I'll apologize and I'm not trying to hijack the thread, I just want to know.

Respectfully,

"Buck"
