Here we go again.... same question asked on multiple threads.

Same answer:

Follow the directions on my sig.


Install the keys as indicated.

If you still get a few key errors disregard them.

Please don't open new threads for more or less the same question. Try to post all your questions in one thread. I have already answered this question in one of your threads. If you get some missing key errors, just select yes to continue the installation.

Answering "Y" does not necessarily mean that it installed.

It merely means that you accepted the response.

E.g. OK to continue, does not equate to sucessfully installed.

It would be advantageous to post actual errors.

I'm sure it's installed. Try to look in your Mandrake menu it maybe there somewhere (I'm not sure where limewire is put in the menu) or entering "limewire" in a console. If you can't find it or it doesnt run from the console the last resort would be to (as root), do

rpm -qa | grep -i limewire

if it's installed a the packagename (limewire) and a version number will show up.

Good Luck

Opjose, if he couldn't find it in 'install packages', it's a good bet it's installed right?

If Limewire rpm is installed there will be no menu entry. There is a separate rpm to establish a menu entry. One for Mandrake and one for Redhat, in jpackages source. If you can't get LimeWire to run from the installed rpm, uninstall it first and try the following.

Limewire is one of the few programs that is easier without using an rpm. Simply go to their website:
http://www.limewire.com/english/cont...allation.shtml
and you will see link to download Limewire in first paragraph.
Installation
1-download installer to your home directory
2- Open Konsole and you will be in your home directory where you just downloaded LimeWire to. At the prompt type: sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin

To Run it
1-open Konsole as regular user, and copy & paste what is between quotation marks "cd LimeWire" then hit enter key.
2- copy & paste what is between the quotation marks "java -jar LimeWire.jar" then hit enter key.
3- start downloading linux ebooks and stuff

He didn't actually say that.

He said:

"I was installing limewire through urpmi i said missing key then said continue installation y/n. Where can i get the key??? "


urpmi connoting the command line version.

When he saw the key prompt he answered "Y".

He posted nothing about it requiring other packages or sucessfully installing, which unfortunately is a common thread on all of his posts... lack of details.

I was actually referring to this. Since he cant find it, I thought it was installed already.

I tried getting it running just to see what he would run into.

It's only a minor bear, but it does bite...

The downloaded "core" has to be unpacked from the .gz file.

It then must be moved to another seperate directory and made executable.

He probably doesn't know how to do this

e.g.

chmod 755 NAMEOFEXECUTABLE

Which will cause problems.

Everytime I post now there is an arguement. There was no error and when I did that thig in console rpm -qa | grep -i limewire i got limewire-3.5.6-1jpp so it must be installed. I did it through urpmi. So should I rty going through the web sight or do I try to get me kmldonkey working. Neither of them will work check out my thing on mlkdonkey.
