    Code:
    PATH=/usr/java/j2re1.4.1_01/bin:$PATH
    limewire
    Verify that that works, and if it does, add the first line (with PATH) to the .bash_profile file in your home dir, and it will work every time after you log out and in again. It hits me that it's possible that it might work immediately, since limewire is a shell script.

    It worked! Thanks for your trouble!

    Edit: The problems seem to be endless. I downloaded a song, but it won't play in any of the media players. I can hit the play button in any of them, but it never even starts. Do I need some kind of decoder for .mp3 files?

    I almost had that in mind, but what I really meant was unthough through commands, such as `ls /usr/java/j2re* | head -1` when I really meant `ls -d /usr/java/j2re* | head -1`. I rarely do typos, but then on the other hand, I really think things through properly when giving a quick solution. In my quick solutions, if I do something right, it's probably just luck.

    But what about the mp3 files not playing? (I guess you missed that part of my post.)

    im not sure if limewire has a built in decoder or not, but redhat doesnt support mp3 by default (legality issues) so you can get an rpm patch from www.xmms.org



    mpg123 is the one...

    Another problem! I clicked on the icon for the RPM, and a bar quickly flashed across then vanished. It said something about package dependencies, but it never went into the install process of the RPM. What am I screwing up with now?

    from the command line - its easier to work with

    rpm -ivh filename.rpm

    and it will clearly tell you what packages it depends on, then go to www.rpmfind.net and get them

    rpm -Uvh filename.rpm will update as opposed to install

    U - upgrade
    ii - install
    v - verbose (tell me what's going on)
    h - hash marks, so i know how far you are

    man rpm for more

    hey guys, my limewire isn't working either and it does the same thing, when i click on it, nothing happens. It is really getting on my nerves, and i know how you said to type that thing in, but i can't figure out where the place is to type it. It would be sweet if someone could explain it to me cause i'm only fourteen and i don't know much computer smarts... lol
