    Preparing to install...
    tail: `-1' option is obsolete; use `-n 1'
    Try `tail --help' for more information.
    ./LimeWireLinux.bin: line 326: [: `)' expected, found -z
    WARNING! The amount of /tmp disk space required and/or available
    could not be determined. The installation will be attempted anyway.
    Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
    Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
    No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
    environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
    running this program.

    Open up a terminal and type env and hit enter. In the output is your environemt settings for your user. In the output you will see path=/andabunchofstuff. This is where your the OS will look for programs when you try and run something (or when something is being installed in your case).

    Do some google searchs on setting path in linux to find out more.

    But if you want java avalible do something like this -

    Create a file called in /etc/profile.d/

    This file should contain the following lines. You have to modify the first line appropriately, according to what's actually in /usr/java/:

    export JAVA_HOME="/usr/java/j2re1.4.2_02"
    export JAVA_PATH="$JAVA_HOME"
    export PATH="$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin"

    To finish it up, do:

    chmod +x /etc/profile.d/

    Java should now work properly. You will need to log in and log out for some things to function properly.

    To install the browser (mozilla) plugin for java, as root, do:

    ln -sf /usr/java/<YourJavaDirectory>/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

    Replace <YourJavaDirectory> with the name of the actual directory.
