More Limewire... install error


I've been trying to get limewire installed for a few days, and have been reading the posts here, many of which were very helpful. The installer now gets much farther along before going Tango Uniform on me!

Here is where I am at:

Code:
Preparing to install...
tail: `-1' option is obsolete; use `-n 1'
Try `tail --help' for more information.
./LimeWireLinux.bin: line 326: [: `)' expected, found -z
WARNING! The amount of /tmp disk space required and/or available
could not be determined.  The installation will be attempted anyway.
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...

Launching installer...

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/zerog/lax/LAX
I went into the LimeWireLinux.bin file to see if anything made sense ... of course, it didn't. It seems to be getting past the whole, "where is your Java" issue that I had before I read the other threads, but I can't figure out what is making this error?

Ideas?

Hmmm cant help you sort out your problems, but I would recomend GTK-Gnutella...It is a very good P2P client that runs on the same netowrk as limewire..

First off, thanks for taking the time to respond. I'm really stuck here and any help would be appreciated.

Yes, I had edited the .bashrc file, as so;

Code:
PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_04/bin
export PATH
export JAVA_HOME
When I went back to double check, I did find one type-o and fixed that, but I still get the same error. Any other ideas?

Thanks again.

you could always try gtk-gnutella....it communicates with Limeware, Bearshare, and others...


Personally, a better solution, that will work with fedora....

I only get this error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/zerog/lax/LAX

When Im not /root. When I am in as /root and I try it I get this:

Preparing to install...
Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.

Now I have edited my .bash_profile to read the following:

# .bash_profile

#Get user aliases and functions

if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc
fi

# User specific environment and startup programs

PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin:
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_05/bin
export PATH
export JAVA_HOME
unset USERNAME

Still getting the error stating that no Java Virtual Machine could be from my PATH environment table..

Any Clues..

:Note: Im running mandrake 10

Ok ... I added the colon to the end of the line, which is the only difference I noted.
Same result... any other ideas where to look.

Thanks for your help!

type su

then your root password.. this makes you the root user

chmod 777 "filename" , this gives you, root, all read write privalges , or as root , chown "user to give ownership to" "filename" , dont use the """" though
