Java VM installation problem


Hi all --

I'm new to Linux, but loving the last two weeks of it. I've already noticed a bunch of improvements in my system over its Windows performance, but i don't want to bore you with what you already know.

I am having trouble with the recognition of my Java VM installation.

I used an rpm to install Java 1.4.2 (redhat v9), and did so successfully. But, when i go to install Limewire, i am given this error:

"No Java VM could be found from your PATH environment variable. You must install a VM ..."

What directory do i need to add to my PATH variable? I've already tried adding /usr/java and /usr/java/j2re1.4.2 without any luck.

Please help, and thanks in advance

Reefa

It's probably

/usr/java/j2re1.4.2/bin

I actually use the java sdk so the way I set my variables

was putting them in /etc/profile

PATH=PATH$:/usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2/bin

and also set

JAVA_HOME=/usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2

EXPORT PATH JAVA_HOME

log out and back in, that's all I have to do.

Any other P2P clients you may know of? I'm also looking for a FTP server. I currently use Filezilla but that's in WinXP.

Nah, I've only briefly flirted with limewire in Linux but never really used p2p on Linux, when I had windows I used edonkey which has a linux version, I'm sure though the good folks will know of tons of them.

I use vsftp for ftp server mainly because that's what I'm familiar with but theres proftp aswell which I'm aware of and again most likely a whole raft of others.

Hey guys -- Thanks for your responses.

I tried Looking's suggestion and it worked. I just needed to set the Java_Home.

Thanks again,
Reefa
