A ZIP file is jut a compressed package of various files. These files can be anything. A ZIP is NOT an installer per se. As already advised, reading the unpacked README file is always a good point to start from. Wherever you got the ZIP file from, there must have been some minimal description about what to do with it.

That last command started to work. Limewire started up and looked like it was installing then it came back with an error related to Java it says Limewire works best with Suns Jar Jave 1.6+, I went to MCC to try to download Jave 1.6+ i selected all the Sun. java apps but it said cannot download those even though they showed upin the package list???

I will post the script that came after I ran runLime.sh
I wish I knew exactly how I came about that. It loaded started up even then it was gone I can't even locate The Limewire GUI? Where would be stored in the start menu? I looked can't find it..?


I wanted to try a shot at installing from shell so this was my 1st 0attempt and it is not easy. I appreciate everyones help.

No need to show the error messages.

Just try again installing java-1.6.0-sun :
Installing "by shell" .........
1) su
2) urpmi java-1.6.0-sun

.......
If you want to see, which java program is making the GUI,
just look into all the ' .jar ' files in Limewire and
read the "500" files, name.class .
.....

Well it installed But no GUI
I could start it fresh each time from shell with the

/runLime.sh
I found an free RPM installer

http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...submit=Search+..

but that seems to fail as well, wont launch completely from start menu.

accessed it from start it asked me to set up a shared folder then gui started & then shut down
I dont need Limewire

I can use ktorrent fo rnow

I idd get a lo tof practice with the Command line

Learned a lot Thanks for all th ehelp in here
making transition to linux less painful
