Did you use an rpm to install java? Maybe you should have used the self extracting binary - they always work.

I know this error I've dealt with it on a couple of occasions.

Don't install Limewire as root, in other words don't su in before you install it. All you need to do is put it in the directory you want it in and then type:

A GUI should then appear and just follow the prompts.

Why don't you just install Limewire from Click n me that would be the logical thing to do.

Anyways, instead of posting again asking for help without any information....again....why not post back saying that the stuff mentioned before did not work

I think you need Java Runtime Environment, not SDK so make sure you have that (it should be in the same directory as j2sdk, it will be something like j2re_1.42_04).

Doesn't matter...SDK comes with a Virtual Machine, it should still work as long as your PATH is set to point at the bin subdirectory of the main Java directory
