You need to install the java jdk or jre rpm from java.sun.com, then install LimeWire afterwards.

yeah this is what I do

grab the jre.bin from sun..... not the rpm

then chmod 777 the jre file

then i

sudo mkdir /usr/java

then

mv jre-whateverversion /usr/java

cd /usr/java

then run the .bin file

limewire looks in /usr/java for jre as default

then it works


but gtk-gnutella is also nice
