First of all please forgive me for my being a
. I used windows, and I started to hate windows more and more the closer I got to it and by the end of the first month with my first powerful computer the login time and sheer ugliness of 2k (couldn't afford the sleek XP and got some 2k action for free) made me switch to dual boot with Mandrake 10.1.(I still do gaming and everything I can't do on linux on windows at least for now).
I'm still getting used to how linux works so....yea....onto my issue.
I'm trying to install limewire. As I said I'm relatively new to linux but picking it up quick. If limewire is crap I'm more than happy to try something else so if somebody has a suggestion throw it out at me.
Right well I went for limewire because I figured with it's using Java that distro compatability issues wouldn't cause me headaches. First thing I did was try a couple of search terms with RPMdrake and found that there wasn't a j2re in the repositories so assumed it was already installed. WRONG! It's not..or at least the Limewire install's pretty sure it isn't.
So I hit the LQ search tool and found that this issue's pretty common. What ISN'T common is that nobody can find it. Everybody else seems to be able to but me :*(.
Am I missing a big peice of the puzzle here? Or is it a small one? Because I searched the Java site for a good while and found nothing but a bunch of notes on how to install the rpm that I could not, for the life of me, find a download link to on the site.
I'd really appreciate some help and I'm really sorry if this was a waste of a thread because I searched wrong. Basically I'd like a link to either a repository for 10.1 with j2re or a download for a Mandrake 10.1 compatable rpm file online. Again thanks for any help you can give me
