not sure if this will help. this is on redhat 8
just grab the jre
open a term window and become root:
chmod +x j2*.bin
rpm -i j2*.rpm
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
NOW EXIT ROOT by typing "exit"
** hit the esc key in upper left of keyboard **
now close your programs and log out then log back in. don't reboot. just log out then back in.
now go grab limewire
open an term window and become root
chmod +x LimeWireLinux.bin
if this doesn't work check this:
start -> system settings -> packages
after entering you root password wait for the package management window to open.
Main headers are:
We want to look under the second to the last one. Developemnt
When you scroll down to Development the first choice is Development Tools. Click the "Details" button to the far right of this selection.
A new window will appear titled "Development Tools Package Details"
In this new window you will notice two main heades:
Clicking the "triangle/arrow" thingy to the right of Extra Packages will list the extra packages. Under there you will find:
gcc-java Java support for gcc.
Click the check box to the right of this to remove the "check" IF IT IS CHECKED. You want this to be an empty box. Now click the "close" button in the bottom right corner of this window. This will take us back to the main Package Management window.
Now click the "Update" button in the bottom right corner.
This probably should have been mentioned before. This needs to be done BEFORE you follow the other instructions. IF GCC-JAVA is installed the limewire/java instructions above WILL NOT - WILL NOT work.
OK. After removing gcc-java - if you followed the instructions above also. It should work fine. I've done this on two different redhat8 boxes in the last three weeks. I promise it will work.
