Limewire install problem


Code:

[robert@localhost robert]$
This is weird because I installed "j2re-1_4_2_05-linux-i586-rpm.bin" and java works in mozilla, I dont understand why I am getting this error message.

Oh, its KDE and im running Mandrake 10.0

well... i read about this error before...; the solution is to add the dir. where java
is ( not sure but i think /usr/lib/java ) to your $PATH .

where did you install JVM. I think LimeWire cant find JVM because its installed in place your shell is not looking. Try to locate the directory of JVM and export the path

#PATH=$PATH:/path/to/JVM
#export PATH

this will add path to your default shell path and then you should be able to install.

Tux,
I dont know how to do this

Here is how you do it.

First, find out where the installation routine put java. It probably put it in /usr/java or /usr/lib/java. Use the find command to find it.

find /usr -name 'java'

You will need the executable called "java" that is in the bin directory inside your java directory. Mine is something like...

/usr/java/j2re-20-2-4-2/bin/java

Now, you need to put a symlink to that in the directory /usr/bin (my favorite directory for dropping symlinks to make things be in my path

ln -s /usr/java/j2re-20-2-4-2/bin/java /usr/bin/java

You will need to be root to do that.

Then it will work just fine.

[root@localhost robert]# ln -s /usr/java/jr2re1.4.2_05/bin/java /usr/bin/java
[root@localhost robert]# ln -s /usr/java/jr2re1.4.2_05/bin/java/usr/bin/java
[root@localhost robert]# ./LimeWireLinux.bin
bash: ./LimeWireLinux.bin: Permission denied
[root@localhost robert]# sh LimeWireLinux.bin
