    LimeWire/Java error? Newbie...


    Hi,

    I can't get LimeWire to work. It won't run from the Applications bar and in a terminal it gives me error messages about my Java version, which is 1.4.2.

    I am running Fedora Core 3.

    Here is a printout of the terminal messages:
    [root@localhost ~]# cd /usr/lib/LimeWire
    [root@localhost LimeWire]# sh ./runLime.sh
    Starting LimeWire...
    Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
    Suitable java version found [java = 1.4.2]
    Configuring environment...
    Loading LimeWire:
    Warning: -jar not understood. Ignoring.
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: LimeWire.jar
    at gnu.gcj.runtime.FirstThread.run() (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.5.0.0)
    at _Jv_ThreadRun(java.lang.Thread) (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.5.0.0)
    at _Jv_RunMain(java.lang.Class, byte const, int, byte const, boolean) (/usr/lib/libgcj.so.5.0.0)
    at __gcj_personality_v0 (/usr/lib/LimeWire/java.home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.4.2-gcj-1.4.2.0/jre)
    at __libc_start_main (/lib/tls/libc-2.3.3.so)
    at _Jv_RegisterClasses (/usr/lib/LimeWire/java.home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.4.2-gcj-1.4.2.0/jre)

    ************************************************** ****************
    Something went wrong with LimeWire.
    Maybe you're using the wrong version of Java?
    (LimeWire is tested against and works best with with Sun's JRE, Java 1.4+)
    The version of Java in your PATH is:
    java version "1.4.2"
    jdkgcj 0.3.1 (http://www.arklinux.org/projects/jdkgcj)
    gcj (GCC) 3.4.2 20041017 (Red Hat 3.4.2-6.fc3)

    Try updating your version of java, if you can, and try again.
