Kazaa lite in WINE?


I was reading a how-to on getting kazaa to run in wine, i have all the dll's needed and i know how to edit the config file, but the path to the dll's on the how-to does not exist on my box, where should i be putting the dll's? It's the most recent version of wine. Thanx

i would personally not deal with the whole wine thing and use an alternative to kazaa that is available for linux. i hear limewire is good: http://www.limewire.com/english/content/home.shtml

I downloaded limewire and it said i needed a java vm so i downloaded and installed this, j2sdk-1_4_2_05-linux-i586.rpm. When i tried installing limewire again it said there was still no VM in my PATH, have i installed the wrong package?

nope, it's just LimeWire (and java) sucking. Try this before running it

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/*/bin

It added Java to your PATH so programs can find it. For some reason Sun believes Java is too good to go in the same place as the rest of your software, so you need some additional configuration .... you'll have to put that in the startup scripts to avoid typing it in every time you want to run it.
