Exclamation Installing Limewire (Please Help Me!!!)


Hey Guys,
I am trying to install Limewire on Linspire. I am completely new to Linspire, don't know ANYTHING about it, including what shell is? Can someone help me in HIGH, HIGH, HIGH, detail? This is without using CNR.

Thanks.

You can use Debian repositories instead of CNR. First, set up a file called /etc/apt/sources.list You can edit this file using kwrite as root. My sources.list file is:
Code:
deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free
#deb-src ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian unstable main contrib non-free

deb ftp://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free
#deb-src ftp://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US unstable/non-US main contrib non-free

deb ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free
#deb-src ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian testing main contrib non-free

deb ftp://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US testing/non-US main contrib non-free
#deb-src ftp://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US testing/non-US main contrib non-free

deb ftp://security.debian.org/debian-security testing/updates main contrib non-free
#deb-src ftp://security.debian.org/debian-security testing/updates main contrib non-fr$

# Marillat's Non-free
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main
After you create that file, open up Konsole (the terminal program), and enter the following commands as root:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install limewire
Edit: You probably already have a file called /etc/apt/sources.list You may want to save it. You can open it in kwrite and then select "save as" and save it as sources.list-old or something like that. I'm not sure what Linspire uses for sources, so you may want to bring the original sources.list file back later. You can replace it with the Debian sources. Linspire is based on Debian and installing a single application like limewire should be no problem from Debian. However, if you upgrade the entire Linspire system from Debian, it will probably break things.
