Well .rpm stands for Red Hat Package Manager. It will only work on red hat.

I just installed Limewire because your post made me diside that I need a p2p on linux.

Down load the other os package which will work on all linux distros. Once downloaded right click on it and extact it. Go into your terminal and type cd for change directory until you are in the extacted directory. Type in the ls command for list. you will see a file named runLime.sh. Type the command "sh runLime.sh". My computer gave me problems here and I had to maxumize the screen behind the splash screen to see the options. To start Limwire again I found that going back and using the same command sh runLime.sh will open it again. I am just a n00b myself and I found this to work.

read a book and you probably will never use windows unless you want to play a game that only runs on windows

Yes, if you don't want that to happen run the program in the background (by putting a & after the program name when you run it) and type exit in the terminal window.

also what i did to make it easier to run limewire i did this command

alias lime="cd /root/LimeWire; sh runLime.sh; cd ~"

Which changes the directory to my where my limewire folder then runs limewire then changes my directory back to my home direcoty whenever i issue the new command lime.


I am trying myself to findout how to have the alias always on i found it will turn of when exiting the terminal

my distro slackware did not have a .bashrc in my home directory. To see if you do use the command "ls -a". If you do have the file go in and add the alias writen above exclude the ; cd ~ at the end. If you dont have it goto www.tldp.com and u can copy a bashrc from them. Search for it and a sample one will come up. Save that into your home directory as .bashrc and edit it to have the alias. My automatically installed after i put it in my home directory. if yours doesn't u probably can add it threw edit profiles in the menu.
