you need to run eitherof the following commands in a terminal session....

sh LimeWireLinux.bin

or

./LimeWireLinux.bin

Be aware you will need to install java first and add it to your path. Search these forums on how to do that. Or look in the forums at Lime wire

just grab the jre

open a term window and become root:

su
chmod +x j2*.bin
rpm -i j2*.rpm
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/plugin/i386/ns610/libjavaplugin_oji.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

NOW EXIT ROOT by typing "exit"

vi .bash_profile
i
export PATH=/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/bin:$PATH
export PATH=/usr/local/Acrobat5/bin:$PATH
export PATH
** hit the esc key in upper left of keyboard **
:wq
exit

************************
now close your programs and log out then log back in. don't reboot. just log out then back in.

now go grab limewire

I realize this is a sizable topic bump, but I just wanted to thank macewan as well. Not only did I get LimeWire installed, but I now know how to hardlink files and chmod so users have the correct permissions to execute a specific bin file. thanks - I've only had linux for 2 days - this really helped.
