you should learn how to use manual and doc pages, and also try searching a little bit

anyway
Code:
rpm -i limewire.rpm

When I do that this is what happens:


Code:
error: failed dependencies:
        /bin/bash   is needed by LimeWire-free-4.9.23-0
        /bin/sh   is needed by LimeWire-free-4.9.23-0

        librt.so.1   is needed by LimeWire-free-4.9.23-0
That is all that it does. Am I doing something wrong?

download the tgz package of limewire(limewire for other platforms)
- unpack the archive with your archive software
- create a shorcut on your desktop to point to the runlime.sh file located in the limewire directory.

The other platform option is a zip file, not a tgz package.

I installed a later version of java, then I tried installing limewire again. When I run the runLime.sh file, I get this.
Code:
Starting LimeWire...
Java exec not found in PATH, starting auto-search...
Java exec found in  /usr/lib/jre1.5.0_05/bin/
Suitable java version found  [/usr/lib/jre1.5.0_05/bin/java = 1.5.0_05]
Configuring environment...
Loading LimeWire:

******************************************************************
Something went wrong with LimeWire.
Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
(LimeWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.4+)
The version of Java in your PATH is:
./runLime.sh: line 117: java: command not found
I have the latest version of java, so what the heck could be wrong?

My experience is that you have to set some enviroment variabels or simply reboot once. And about rpm and .tgz files: in slackware you can convert rpm to tgz with rpm2tgz <your_rpm>. "alien" should also be able to
do this, try "man alien" for more info.

it is more likely to be a xfree/xorg version problem

On the feather homepage is sez that its based on Knoppix which is based on Debian.
Debian doesn't use RPM (RedHatpackageManager) files, it uses .deb 's .
You need to convert the rpm package to .deb.
If you have alien then it should do the trick:

http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man1/alien.1.html

If you don't got Alien then you need to install it. Since you are running a Debian based
distro you could use APT or some graphical frontend to get it. But since im not using
Debian I can't help you with that.
