Help installing Limewire


I've downloaded Limewire and it's in .bin format. How can I install that type of program?

you can usually just type the filename from the command line ./name-of-file.bin

Must I be root?

*Well I tried both ways and it says "Permission denied" each time.

it depends.. did you download with root or user.. if a user downloaded it, they are the owner of the file and can install it.. if your root, you can change the permissions and allow users to install it...

And there is another entrapment if you have kaffe suit installed on the system. You will need the latest Java SDK from java.sun.com installed in order to compile the LimeWire, and it might confllict with kaffe if it is installed, so you might want to uninstall kaffe before compiling and install Java with proper $PATH udjustment.

I figured out how to access the file. I needed to set the chmod on it. So I did, then I went and installed the JVM but I need to figure out how to set my PATH environment variable.

I've installed the 1.3.1 JDK and SDK from Sun.

AMDpowered try this: (i did this for me)

login as root.

browse to /etc

find the profile file (NOT profile.d)

Anywhere in the file add this line:

PATH="$PATH:/usr/java/jre1.3.1_02/bin/"

That seems to work for me.
