He's talking about this program, gcc. Install limewire with java and not gcc and maybe that will work.

Thanks A LOT!!

I am brand new to Linux, using the Redhat 9 Distro. I am so used to Windows Installs, I was lost when trying to install LimeWire. Recently, I decided I would try Linux, as I am sick of Windows for many reasons.

Anyways, thanks for the informative posts, as I was able to scrap together all the tips from the posts and install limewire without a hitch.

PS: If anyone knows of a Linux tutorial they would reccomend, let me know:

I'm sure I can learn enough to get by, but I want to make sure I'm learning the right stuff!!

Rep: Reputation: 30 - many kinds of different linux guides - user contributed guides - this one may be easier to read and understand by newbies

I haven't read all the guides at either url but the first link is recommended alot by many people and the second link is a website devoted to user contributed/written guides.

wow man, i'm a linux newbie and i did not have this much trouble getting limewire to install...

hm.. how bout using the beta one? it doesnt require an install...

as for java, use this tutorial.. it works..

i did it on red hat 7.3 before i moved to suse 9
it works for both no problem.

and it tells you how to plug into mozilla netscape and opera, as well as set the env variables to get programs to see java. (ie: Open office, limewire.. etc..)

I'm helping a friend install LimeWire on her RedHat 9 system. She has the J2RE installed. She gets all kinds of Java exceptions like you did, even after setting the path variable. did you ever get limewire to work and if so, How? thanks.

I have j2se 1.4 installed on my system and I didn't have to do anything special to get limewire installed. It just worked.

yes i just installed limewire again as a matter of fact. What i did was i got java working to the point where it works with open and the web.

Then i downloaded the LimeWireInstall.bin

(version 4.0 now)

and in the terminal i used the "cd foldername"
to cd into the directory containing the file.

once you get there type in the following:

sh LimeWireInstall.bin (or whatever the filename is.bin)

from then on it will launch an installer to do the installation.

Pay attention to where it installs for you wlil need to launch from this directory.

Once its done, go there and in the terminal type in
sh LimeWire

thats it.
it should work fine as long as JRE is installed properly.. if not you did something wrong in java install.
