Linux won't lie to you by saying a file isnt there if it really is. Whatever you were doing, there's a logic error to it. Double check what you did and you'll probably find your error.

Re: Everytime I post now there is an arguement.
lmao-- Linux users tend to be very passionate about their pc's and distro's, a few have aggresive personalities that show in their
posts. Also, often many ways to get the same end result.

As to how I install LimeWire, the instructions I gave you were asuming your browser downloaded the LimeWire.bin into your "home directory". "no such file or directory", does not mean the file is not on your hard drive, simply it is not in your Home directory. Your home directory not being "/home" but "/home/(yourusername)". Simply need to look at your browser preferences as to where you are downloading your files, and move the file to "/home/(yourusername)", if you want to follow my instructions.

ddrfreak it's not that people are being aggressive, it's just that people have different ways of doing things and sometimes heated arguments can take place, but hey we are all trying to help. I think some of the other guys are probably getting a bit frustrated coz it seems like we have had to repeat a few answers, but I can understand that you are still learning Linux and it can take sometime to get to grips with certain basic concepts. Anyway I am going to post a limewire tutorial on my website tommorow afternoon, so if your problems are not sorted, I'll post the link.

Where did you save the limewire.bin file? Once you figure out where, go to that directory and repreat the instructions above.

(Oh, and part of the learning process for Linux is actually trying to learn on your own. It proves INVALUABLE so you can do things on your own rather than have someone holding your hand the first time and you going back again if you forget.)

accually it was hard to do at first. Then I named the program limeinstal5.bin then I typed that in and I got [root@MTS administrator]# sh ./limeinstal5.bin

I'm impressed, you have made a little progress learning to use a terminal session on your own I see. Next, get java installed and redo what you just did and your on LimeWire.
P.S. you can install Limewire as a regular user. Install java as root from rpm if you want to set that up in a foolproof manner. I used to install java by way of manual install from the Files on Sun site. My last install that way I made a mess and it took me three days to figure out how to clean out the manual installs so I could get a fresh rpm install to work. Here is a working rpm, if you download it, you can just double click on it to install it.

Download java from sun java website. On that site, select the J2SE 5.0. You will be taken to a new page, select either the J2SE 5.0 JDK or the J2SE 5.0 JRE (if you want to just run java programs but not develop any just choose the jre, In this example I'll use the jdk). When you are taken to the proper download site, choose the self extracting rpm. Once you download the file you wish, follow the steps below from a console (don't type or paste the $ and # signs below they just represent user prompts. substitute all paths for the right ones on your system.)

1) change into the directory you downloaded java into e.g.
$cd downloads/bin (change this so it points to your dowload folder)

2) make the self extracting rpm executable e.g.
$chmod +x jdk-1_5_0-linux-i586-rpm.bin

3) A license agreement will appear, read through it and say yes and an rpm will be extracted into that same directory.

4) Do $su -c "rpm -Uvh jdk-1_5_0-linux-i586.rpm" (copy everything after the $ sign including the quotation marks)
you will be prompted for the root password, enter it and the java rpm will be installed.

5) Do $cd
you will then be back in your home directory

6) Add the lines below to your .bash_profile (it's a hidden file so it's name starts with a .)
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/jdk1.5.0/bin
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/jdk1.5.0/jre/bin

by doing something like,

$kwrite .bash_profile (the kwrite text editor will start and it will open the .bash_profile file) I usually use emacs but kwrite will do for now. if you don't have kwrite substitute the kwrite command for gedit)
copy and paste the lines I mentioned above to the bottom of the .bash_profile and save it.

7) logout of KDE, GNOME or whaterver GUI you are using and log back in again.

8) do $echo $PATH (this time type the $ sign before PATH)
You should see a a few paths including the two in step 6 (the PATHS are the directories that you are allowed to execute files from)

9) change into the directory that you installed limewire e.g.
$cd downloads/bin (change this so it points to your dowload folder)

10) Do $chmod +x LimeWireLinux.bin

11) Do $su -c "./LimeWireLinux.bin"
enter the root password and install in to a path such as /usr/local/LimeWire

12) Do as root #ln -s /usr/local/LimeWire/LimeWire /usr/bin/limewire
so if you just type "limewire" from a console or make a desktop shortcut it'll start LimeWire.

If you want to install only for yourself and no other users on your system, you can install it in your home folder. You would have to skip steps 11 and 12 above and just do
$./LimeWireLinux.bin
install to somewhere like /home/userid/programs/LimeWire
and then do
$ln -s /home/userid/programs/LimeWire/LimeWire /home/userid/bin/limewire
and just typing "limewire" in a console or creating a desktop shortcut pointing to /home/userid/bin/limewire will start it.

Hope this helps out, don't be freaked out by the commnads just do stuff one step at a time. To find out what the commands mean or do go to this page
