I am downloading this file so that the LimeWire I downloaded will install.

[steve@localhost steve]$ ./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.

That is what I get when I try to install LimeWire... Am I even downloading the right Java platform?? Please Help this NEWbie...

Thanks guys...

Add java to your PATH

Fire up your editor and edit your .bashrc file

Add these lines: <pause while I hit the search button below my post>

PATH=$PATH:/path/to/your/java/install #usually /usr/java/j2blablabla/bin
export PATH
export JAVA_HOME

I bet if you save that file, you'll get what you're looking for. Hit the "search" button on my answer to this question a short while ago.
