Lime WIre


I download it, and then go to where I saved it, open up a terminal and type

sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin

And then it says that I need to install a VM prior to running this program. I heard somewhere that VM stands for Virtual Machine?. So what exactly is a VM and how do I get one?


Thanks
-Kyle

You need to install Java, as LimeWire is written in java.

Download it from java.sun.com, and install it according to the instructions there.
Make sure java is in your path, and set the CLASSPATH variable.

Then try installing LimeWire, and it should work.

I hope this helps

After installing java, do the following.

To add java to your path:
Add the following to your ~/.bash_profile
Code:
PATH=/usr/local/java/bin:$PATH
export PATH
where you have installed java in /usr/local/java.

To set your CLASSPATH, add the following line to your ~/.bash_profile
Code:
CLASSPATH=/usr/local/java/lib
export CLASSPATH
After you have added these lines to .bash_profile, type
Code:
source ~/.bash_profile
You should now be able to install LimeWire

First of all, I just want to say, there's a forum at limewire's site that walks you through this whole process

Second, the reason you can't install it under /usr/local is probably because you're not logged in as root. You log in as root simply typing in "su" and then pressing return. You will be asked for your password, you enter your password and press return. The prompt should change to this "[root@localhost /]#" or something very similar.

Just follow the steps given to you by the other people here. If you get an error when typing in "source ~/.bash_profile" then just restart your computer and don't worry about typing it in. After you've done this limewire will install without a problem.

That's great.. I missed this thread til now... I just got limewire going as well, had extra trouble as I didn't realize that kaffe was installed on the\is sytem and it was screwing things up... I use gtk-gnutella mostly, but limewire is a little different and sometimes gets better results on some searches, and it allows you to browse a host and chat, etc...

Holy shit.

I had to resinstall Linux because someone had me do somthing that was wrong and totaly messed stuff up and I forgot to make a backup file .. blah blah. So I am trying to install Java again, and I did everything just exactly the same as I did before, download it, chmod it, 'sh j2re-1_4_2_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin' agree to the shit, it makes the rpm file, I install the rpm file, it makes /usr/java/j2re-1_4_2_04, I edit ~/.bash_profle and add the shit as the guy said above, type source ~/.bash_profile, restart my computer just to be sure.. it reboots, I go into terminal and type sh LimeWireLinux.bin.. and I get the following shit.

Code:
Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...

Launching installer...

Invocation of this Java Application has caused an InvocationTargetException. This application will now exit. (LAX)

Stack Trace:

   at com.zerog.lax.LAX.launch (source file unknown)
   at com.zerog.lax.LAX.main (source file unknown)
This Java Application has encountered an unexpected error and will now exit. (LAX)

Stack Trace:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/swing/JDialog
   at com.zerog.lax.LAX.launch (source file unknown)
It says source file unkown.. but I type source ~/.bash_profile, restarted my computer.. I don't get why it's not working now.. but it worked with no problems at all befor...

Can someone help me on this real fast?

Thanks
-Kyle

Are you trying to install it as root or normal user? Install java edit your path and try the following, su -c "./LimeWireLinux.bin" . I used to have a similar problem on Mandrake and running the install as root (and installing LimeWire globally) worked. If it doesn't work first time round add the path to both root and the normal users path, log out and login again as normal user and run the above command again in the folder you downloaded LimeWire. You may want to try the updated java runtime or sdk coz your version is not the newest from http://java.sun.com .

I would suggest that you try installing with the self extracting file rather then using the rpm. The rpm is usually designed to work with red hat. I've had similar problems installing rpm's on red hat.

Rule of thumb with mandrake is... if you have the mandrake rpm, install that, if not, install from source.
