hmm, try d-loading limwire again (I knwo I know) the binary could be bad, also your java install might be bad.

I dled the java environment again, and it said everything was already installed when I ran the installer, so I think that is ok, I will try getting the lime wire bin file again, and see what happens.

Me, I am good, but frustrated with my computer right now, lol, and loving how much better linux is over windows

lol I know how you feel, my first few months in linux I got frustraited, now having used it 5 years (with no copies of windows for 3.5 or so) I look back and wander what was so hard, everything is so easy now, it just makes sence (more sence than windows ever did and I still used that longer than I have used linux, just not in almost 4 years)

k, well I got limewire again, and it still says the unrecognized JVM options. I will get linux eventually, seems very similar to old Dos, before 7 and I loved that system, it just made more sense, and was more powerful, I just need to figure out how linux works. Any other ideas

In the month I have used linux, I have never seen a Blue screen of death, that right there alone is enough reason to switch from windows.

what user are you running it as?

there is no bsod in linux. there are kernel exceptions. but it is a bit different.
you want to do a good project to learn vital linux stuff? compile the kernel (not all that hard and very good to learn)

ok, try installing limewire as the user who will use it in home dir, it is made to be that way

you can find tutorials all over the place (tldp.org)

I am in a java applet class.. but I have very little other java experiance, so I have no clue what those exceptiosn mean, it might be a mandrake specific issue, try googling it, maybe google a limewire rpm or something

If you want to use K3B it is necessary to run K3Bsetup (as root) first. There (in step 4, if I recall okay) you can chose the generic-mmc driver. And you absolutely have to create a group for burning (step 5 I think, I used CD-RW or some such). Then K3B should work with no problem at all.

Well I can burn cds now, so I just uninstalled k3b, but thanx anyways. I think I am gonna end up searching for limewire rpm files, or something like that, maybe I can find the latest CVS or something that will work. Thanx for the help guys

to install limewire do this:

edit your .bash_profile to make it look like this: (works for drake nad redhat)
________________________________________________________________
# .bash_profile

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/bin

export PATH
unset USERNAME
________________________________________________________________

make sure your java path is correct cuz thats WHERE MINE IS!!!!! WHO KNOWS WHERE YOU INSTALLED JAVA!!

after that as long as you have it right, log out and back into X then run ./LimeWireLinux.bin and crap yourself with happiness

its just a file. you can use kedit, or mcedit, etc

kedit .bash_profile <--- thats the command to open that file. just save it after wards.

or: mcedit .bash_profile


or if you use konquereor just use the option up top in the menu to "view" then " show hidden files" in your home directory and youll see it there. after you save it, make sure you log out then back into X. you can see if its right by typing in a terminal:

java -version


it should give you the PATH to java as added to your .bash_profile
