ant limewire and java [solved]

for slackware 10.1

I would really like to get limewire to work. All the binaries i have dont work, and it looks like compiling is the only way. to compile limewire i need to install java, install apache's ant, and use them to build the limewire source code.

None of these I really know how to go about. I tried to install java and ant, but I dont know nearly enough to install them correctly.

of course, a slackware compiled version of limewire would also work, but I haven't had any luck with that.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.



ok, prob was i needed to install the SDK version of Java. having done that, the binaries of ant worked and then i was able to compile limewire.

- look on the cd for java or try to follow instructions on There are lots of threads on this forum about java.
- for limewire you can try or use rpm2tgz to get a limewire package
- installing ant consist in extracting files from the archive(tar.bz2 or tar.gz)
