Did I install the wrong version of Java?

Make your life a little eaiser by....


go into your mandrake package manager.

select all of the development stuff, compilers, libaries, ect and install them off the mandrake disks.

That will solve most of your issues with compiling the softwere from source (which is what im assuming you are doing)


I also am a gift fan. I personally use giFTcurs as my interface, bc it can be run via cli, and I run it in a screen session so even if I log out and kill X it can still run nicley in the background.

gift is top.

I use it with giftcurs, text mode client, so i can manage my downloads from work through an ssh session

Apollon looks sweet though, I wonder if it's already in the portage tree...

from commandline type:

which java



suppose it returns:

/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/bin/java



now use gedit and open the file .bash_profile which is located in /home/loren/
to do this while still from commandline type:

gedit .bash_profile




add this line in your .bash_profile

export PATH=/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_02/bin:$PATH



now save the file and log out and then back in and limewire should be good to go

if "java" is not already in your path then "which java" wont work.

"locate java |grep bin" might be more useful, assuming that you have "locate" and "updatedb" installed, you might want to updatedb before running locate. Or just have a hunt around and find "java" yourself.

Apollon package installed...can't start it.

I am a very new user to linux.

MDK 9.2: I downloaded the all in on Apollon + gift installer, and after about two hours of compiling, needing libraries, compiling again, I finally got to the message saying that apollon was installed (Hooray!)...However, after all that, when I type Apollon on the shell line, it doesn't work...probablly a newbie thing, please help.

that whole apollon thing is really weird. i've got it working on several computers, but every time i do something different. first of all, make sure you run gift-setup from the command line. that will make sure gift is configured correctly. i think running apollon after that should work. if not, try running the gift daemon first (giftd), then running apollon. if all else fails, try the rpms

For folks who can't get Apollon working, try this(it worked for me):
1. Login as root with su.
2. cd /usr/lib
3. ln -s /usr/local/lib/(the name of one of the library file you were asked for)
4. Repeat for the other library files.

Try running Apollon again.
