LimeWire installation

I'm fairly new to software installs, I haven't had any trouble until I tried to install Limewire.....I'm not sure what this all means but I can't get the install to complete, any ideas.

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

Launching installer...

You have to install java before limewire; limewire is a java based application. The java rpm is called j2re-xxxxx usually.

try removing limewire and then re-intalling it. make sure you delete .hidden limewire files from your home dir.

that might help, it worked for me.

I think my java vm is missing a path resource, could that be the problem?

Your PATH environment variable needs to point to your java/bin directory. You can set it with the console command:


If you then type $PATH you should see the java/bin directory in the path and then LimeWire should install.
