Limewire install


I installed limewire with the package installer,the menu shortcut also.I use 2005 le.When I click the limewire button I can see the hourglass working(kde) then nothing happens.No console,hang ups,nothing.Does limewire not work with mandriva?I cant find a config file for it either.If it wont work Is there another p2p service I can share mp3s with online?Thanks

Limewire works fine with Mandriva. I just installed it yesterday myself, and used it pretty much all afternoon. I'm assuming that you have the J2RE installed and didn't receive any errors when you installed it? Do you show any errors from LimeWire at all in your log files?

I just tried limewire from a root command prompt and it said

[/usr/bin/limewire: error: failed to set JAVACMD
/usr/share/java-utils/java-functions: line 135: -mx32m: command not found]

I take it I dont have java installed?

When I search the pkg manager for files containing java,should i check all results and install?

Thanks I'm kinda new at linux.......but I'm luvin it.

It sounds like some kind of 'cant-find-java' problem. Open a terminal window in KDE and type 'java' (no quotes). If it comes up with something like this:
Code:
Usage: java [-options] class [args...]
           (to execute a class)
   or  java [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
           (to execute a jar file)
etc....
then its installed correctly, if not go and install the latest JRE (try http://java.com/en/).

If it is installed correctly then try running 'limewire' from the command line.

RPM is the easiest, and certainly the recommended route for new users, yes. You can save the RPM anywhere, but can only install it from the root account. Log in normally, open a terminal window, then run

RPM -ivh /pathtoj2re.rpm

You'll see some activity, at the end of which your JAVA virtual machine will be installed.the

in a console logged in as root and it said:command not found?

Did I not enter it properly? Thanks

No that's a binary file (probably a shell script) that contains the rpm file. You have to run it like this:
Code:
/home/jeff/Desktop/jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin
OR
cd /home/jeff/Desktop/
./jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin
The instructions on the java.com site step you through all this in detail:

To make it even easier for you. I believe that you can just click on the JRE rpm in Konquer and it will come up and ask for the root password as it starts to install. I didn't use terminal when I installed the java (jre) and Limewire, I just clicked on the RPM. I am using Mandriva le 2005.

I'm lazy I just click instead of doing the typing (grin)...

Hello Im having java install issues too

"MRDucks" with the .bin file I just logged in as root CD to the dir where i had the file and typed "chmod 1 jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin" to give me the correct permissions then i typed " ./jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin " and bam it was done.

BUT the issue im havingwith lime wire is that it's asking for j2eesdk-1_4_02_2005Q2-linux.bin for some reason and i dont no why because i hav java installed and linked to mozilla and it works.
When i type java it a terminal it just says command not found so ???? i dont no whats going on. Anyways I DL j2eesdk-1_4_02_2005Q2-linux.bin and CD to that dir as ROOT and typed " chmod 1 j2eesdk-1_4_02_2005Q2-linux.bin" and that worked but when I put " ./j2eesdk-1_4_02_2005Q2-linux.bin" it says

[root@localhost Desktop]# ./j2eesdk-1_4_02_2005Q2-linux.bin
./j2eesdk-1_4_02_2005Q2-linux.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared objectfile: No such file or directory
[root@localhost Desktop]#

And even though I already installed " jre-1_5_0_04-linux-i586-rpm.bin" the limewire install says ...

[root@localhost Desktop]# rpm -i LimeWireLinux.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
j2re >= 1.4.1 is needed by LimeWire-free-4.9.30-0
[root@localhost Desktop]#

Am I doing something wrong??

Thanks for any input I would really like to be able to use LimeWire

Linux is case sensitive, so RPM is different from rpm. The correct command is: "rpm -Uvh <package filename>" and not RPM

Aside from that the file being an executable and not a rpm package as the other reply said...

Ahhh.Thanks alot.I should have paid closer attn. Like someones signature on this forum says
capitalization is the difference between "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse" and "I helped my uncle jack off a horse".........BIG difference lol Thanks again.
