Problems instaling Limeware. What is a VM?


I tried to install Limeware and got this message:

[neil@localhost neil]$ sh LimeWireLinux.bin
Preparing to install...
tail: `-1' option is obsolete; use `-n 1'
Try `tail --help' for more information.
LimeWireLinux.bin: line 326: [: `)' expected, found -z
WARNING! The amount of /tmp disk space required and/or available
could not be determined. The installation will be attempted anyway.
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.
[neil@localhost neil]$

I did downlod and install a java plugin for mozilla but I'm not sure if that is what it needs and I have a problem or a VM is something else alltogether. I'd appreciate any help

I don't think it's worth installing limewire, it's far from anything decent. For P2P I have found that gift is by far the one of the best there is. http://gift.sf.net Of course, this really doesn't answer your question...

You'll actually need to install java, and then add it to your $PATH variable. Translation:
You should search the forums for limewire or java and path, you'll find a plethora of threads explaining how to do what I have said above. Afterwards, you'll have java, which has a virtual machine portion in it, in your path and things will be able to use it when needed. But I'd definitely move on from limewire, it's not worth the work it takes to install it.

Cool

Thanks. I think I will try both your suggestions although I tried Apollon and it doesn't work very well (and I think it has GIft in it) but I can only learn twice as much. Thanks

If you are talking about starting LimeWire, go to the directory you installed it in and type ./LimeWire.
