limewire on slackware in trouble

somethings wrong with limewire

natsume@darkstar:~/Desktop/usr/share/limewire$ sh ./
Starting LimeWire...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
Suitable java version found [java = 1.6.0_01]
Configuring environment...
Loading LimeWire:
No X11 DISPLAY variable was set, but this program performed an operation which requires it.
at java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment.checkHeadless(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.Window.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.Frame.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.awt.Frame.<init>(Unknown Source)
at com.limegroup.gnutella.gui.AWTSplashWindow.splash(
at com.limegroup.gnutella.gui.Main.showInitialSplash(
at com.limegroup.gnutella.gui.Main.main(

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 1.5+)
The version of Java in your PATH is:
java version "1.6.0_01"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_01-b06)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_01-b06, mixed mode, sharing)

can anybody help me fix it.
