Sorry, but no-one needs to learn anything. In my opinion both Vi and EMACS are simply too hard to use
Sometimes the only option is to use ed editor ( the core of vi), so I'd see you drooled when you recover from a hard failover, and your startup scripts corrupted, reinstall? Maybe it is an option for you, I preffer to fix it. And learning is not gonna rot your mind in any way.

What? i dont understand how you have to learn EMACS or Vi to fix a problem. An editor is an editor. If you want to use something fancy..well thats why you have X windows and stuff.l

When you'll have a hard crash, you'll get it, the only option for you will be single user mode (init 1) no X or Y or Z whatsoever, to edit files you won't even be able to use emacs, ed (the parent of all UNIX editors including vi, which is just a superset of ed) is the last resort (if installed). That's what I mean.

Woah

didn't mean to start an editor debate over this.


I just think that at some point you may need to use vi and it might be at a bad time to start learning.

therion12, you may want to listen to neo77777.

one day when your grown up and your required to fix a unix system, at times.. your only going to have vi to edit files to fix.. so every good admin in the corporate world usually knows vi.

Okay, time to bump this thread.

I'm having a LimeWire problem.

I installed Java SDK 1.4.1 (RPM file) and had no problem. I put Java in my PATH, and which java comes up fine.

I then installed LimeWire, which had no problem finding Java, and it installed with no problems. However, when I tried to run LimeWire, I got this message:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: lax/nl/java/option/java/stack/

Any help?

no, not time to bump this thread. it's been very happily dead and buried for 6 months. start a new thread if you have your own issues.

BUT.. as we KEEP saying, forget limewire, it sucks, try something properly native like gtk-gnutella and qtella

you've not tried a decent gnutella client then huh? most of this thread is not relevant, more than half is discussing a guy (who's now thankfully left)'s hatred of real text editors

Chris come on man...

I like it, not like that's saying much, but it does mean that I use it. As for that error, I've only gotten it when java wasn't really in my PATH. If you ran the installer, this is baffling. You might wanna try the .bin file, as it's nothing but the directory, compressed. You ./ the bin in /usr/bin/local and it creates the directory /usr/bin/local/java-1.4.1 then you just mv it to java and place /usr/loca/bin/java/bin into your path in /etc/profile.

If these instructions aren't helpful because you can't understand them, I'll be happy to go into further detail, but if they are ok for your level, let me know if you still have problems afterwards, and what you have tried.

Cool

Actually, I did try GTK-Gnutella, and didn't care for it. I never could seem to find fast enough host. However with LimeWire, I seem to have better luck. And I like the LimeWire style of searching.

As for the thread, the first page did seem to deal with my issue, as it dealt with the :Excpetion in Thread "main" line.

I really could care less about the "text editor" issue.
