I just installed JAVA sucessfully I believe and I want to install Limewire but I get this message

./LimeWireLinux.bin: line 326: [: `)' expected, found -z
WARNING! The amount of /tmp disk space required and/or available
could not be determined. The installation will be attempted anyway.
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.

I cannot seem to find where java was installed to, I used midnight commander to help me locate the file and no such luck. I am running Fedora Core 1 with KDE. Thanks yet again

click the redhat icon and go to search for files and folders

enter
java

and click search.


when it finds it note down the path

then in your

/etc/profile

file add this to the bottom.

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/j2sdk_nb/j2sdk1.4.2/bin/

replacing /opt/j2sdk_nb/j2sdk1.4.2/bin/ with the path of where your java file is located

look for the java file that is located in a bin directory so it will look something like this

something/something/bin/java
