frostwire install help


ok first things first, i have been trying for the longest to get frostwire install and nothing.im ready to pull my hair out. to answer your basic questions:

i have yellow dog linux 6 i belive it is based off of (fedora core 6) so for this post lets just say i have fedora core 6


i have java-ppc-60 installed (from the ibm site)

java has been installed tested and working (thats a fact)

now that you know that basics ill get to the problem
what i do is i go to the frostwire site and i go to download and i select the redhat/fedora package and i open it with software installer and it installs. if i go to apps>internet>frostwire here is what i get

Error Information:

Also the install is expecting to find JAVA in either of these locations: /usr/java/ or /opt/ or /usr/lib/.

Is there any particular reason why you can't use the Sun JRE?
