Running LimeWire 32bit on a 64bit System?
 
Another Question for the Masses>

I'm using Mandriva One 2007 x86_64

And I love my LimeWire.

Is there anyway that I can get a 32bit Version of LimeWire to run on my 64bit OS?

I've been trying but it keeps coming up with missing a dependcie file jr2 or something to that effect.

Or do they happen to make a 64bit version of LimeWire I know nothing about?

Thanks Again... For any Suggestions...;)

Sure this is easy enough:

I Clicked on the rpm that of coarse is executable.
I've even tried it in Terminal as well as /root Terminal and get the same thing.
It is as follows:

Some requested packages cannot be installed:
LimeWire-free-4.12.6-0.i386
(due to unsatisfied j2re[>= 1.4.1])
continue installation anyway?
ABORT OK

I went to Mandrivas repos and downloaded Java but NO SOAP.:mad:

I hope this Helps. Thanks for the QUICK Response.

what version of java did you download from the repository? did you edit your PATH variable as needed? what is the output of 'echo $JAVA_HOME'

you can get the .rpm from java.sun.com, download the latest update for the JRE. there should be installation instrutcions that are easy to follow.

JAVA installed from repos

Here are the ones I had installed from the repos.
But have since removed, because I'd forgot you could get the .rpm from Sun Java.

java-1.4.2-gcj-compat
java-1.4.2-gcj-copmpat_plugin
java-1.4.2-gcj-compat-src
java_binfmt-1.0.2.11mdv
glib-java-0.2.6-2mdv

I downloaded the .rpm for both the i586 system as well as an AMD64 based system.
But now my question is this.

The program/installer I downloaded from Mandriva was/is the x86_64
when I was running this Program in KDE it said I was on a i586 system which of coarse showed I am running a Dual Core Processor.

But here is where my question comes in.
I'm running a AMD Athlon64 X2 Socket AM2 Dual Core Processor.

Which one of these .rpm's Should I use?
I'd really HATE to Hose my system, and have to do a complete reinstall.
I just got it back up and runnin, from my change from KDE to Gnome I only changed because their Version of Gnome offers me a couple of things that theirs of KDE didn't.:study: :scratch:

If you could give me a fairly good idea of which way I should go I'd sure be most Grateful.

I think I should use the i586 installer/.rpm but I just want to make sure... Thanks Again for your help...;)

go here http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp and select the java runtime environment update, accept the license, under 'Linux Platform - J2SE(TM) Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 10' download the 'Linux RPM in self-extracting file'. instructions are here: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/jre/i...ml#install-rpm

I went back and downloaded the file again just to make sure I had the right one.
Followed their instructions to the letter and still came up with an ERROR Message...

Here it is...

[root@manicmess Desktop]# '/home/bipolarpenguin/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_10-linux-amd64-rpm.bin' chmod a+x jre-1_5_0_<version>-linux-and64-rpm.bin

Done.
[root@manicmess Desktop]#

I don't understand it.
The file and Directory are there.

The ONLY one I could get to install is the i586 .rpm but while Limewire installs when I click on the Icon nothing happens.

And when I run it in Terminal it tells me Limewire needs 1.4 or better.
And I just installed 1.5.

What gives?
Am I missing something?

Thanks again for all your willingness to help...:cry:

did you follow all of the instructions including modifying your path variable? whats the output of 'echo $JAVA_HOME'?

Here's the echo JAVA ouptput: [bipolarpenguin@manicmess Desktop]$ su
Password:
[root@manicmess Desktop]# 'echo $JAVA_HOME'?bash: echo $JAVA_HOME?: command not found
[root@manicmess Desktop]#

Please forgive me for being ignorant but?

Just exactly HOW do you edit the path Variable?

This is something I don't beleave I've ever had to do before...

But I'm always willing to learn.:newbie:

I've been at Linux for a little over 2yrs now, And I know I have'nt even SCRATCHED the surface yet...:Pengy:

nadroj 12-07-2006 12:07 PM

the command is without the single quotation marks, its: echo $JAVA_HOME

if the output of this command is nothing then do the following. can you go to the sun site like i mentioned in one of my first posts in this thread, and instead of downloading and following the instructions for the .rpm do the same for the .bin. copy and paste all the commands and output while installing. also post the output of the echo command as noted above.

edit: search around here for modifying an environment variable if you need to. i think ive installed limewire and java JRE without modifying an environment variable, though.
