    LimeWireLinux.bin?


    Hello
    I need some help installing limewire.
    Every time I try to install limewire I get this message:

    [nikosapi@localhost Setups]$ sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin
    Preparing to install...
    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.
    [nikosapi@localhost Setups]$

    The thing is that I did install java and I'm completely clueless.
    Please help,
    Nikosapi

    Make sure that the path to the java bin directory is in your path. I always forget to do that.

    Try logging in as su first, then ./LimeWirelinux.bin That made the difference for me

    Once you install java, you must specify this path on $PATH, or you just tell the limewire installer where java is, like so:
    Code:
    [...]$ PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_06/bin sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin
    Of course, in your case, the java directory may not be in the same path as mine, so just put yours and you'll be ready.
