LimeWire on RedHat 9


Just installed RedHat 9(Shrike). When I goto install LimeWire, I get this:

$ ./LimeWireLinux.bin
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.


I went and downloaded and installed these 2 packages:

j2sdk-1_4_2-nb-3_5_1-bin-linux.bin
and
j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586.rpm

BUT I STILL GET THIS ERROR, AHHHH !!

lol... please help

And you didn't bother to set either your PATH or your JAVA_HOME environtment variables. Installing a rpm doesn't do that for you. You can set these either in your /etc/profile or in your .bashrc file.

If you need more details, do a search here on Limewire and you'll find dozens and dozens of posts explaining the fine details of how to do this.
