Limewire doesn't work?
I bought Red Hat 8.0 Professional, and installed it with every package available. That included Limewire, but when I click on the Limewire icon it doesn't run. Nothing happens at all. What should I do to make it work?
I want to get myself some MP3s. :D
Run it in a shell and see what it says.
[ed@Linux /]$ /usr/bin/limewire
Warning: -jar not understood. Ignoring.

That's what it says. :o
It seems that it's running it using the gcc java runtime. Try downloading Sun's JRE instead, from http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.1/download.html. (Note, the JRE, not the SDK)
The file it downloaded is:
What should I do with that file?
chmod u+x j2re-1_4_1_01-linux-i586.bin
(that add's execute permission to the file, so you can run it)
(this runs the file)
it will ask you to agree to the license.. hopefully after that you get an RPM, if not you should go back and get the RPM version of that file (right next to where you downloaded this one if it isn't an RPM)
then you would do (as root)
(this will install the RPM, once you thange to the correct filename if it doesnt match)
rpm -ivh j2sdk-1_4_1_01-fcs-linux-i586.rpm
I went through what you said, but instead of an RPM it gave me a directory of files. Within that directory was a .zip file. I extracted that, which had install.sh inside of it. I went through the steps of it, saying yes to the license agreement. It then returns:
"In order to use Java(tm) Web Start you must have a version of Java 2 standard edition
Is that not what I'm trying to install right now!? It asks for the directory, and gives the default directory of where it should be. I don't even have the directory. :evil:
Try downloading the RPM instead.
I did the instructions again, this time with the RPM, and after typing in the final command it went through until it said 100%, and gave a blank command line again. I tried the "usr/bin/limewire" command again, and it still did the same thing. =\
Are you sure it said "-jar not understood"? Give the output of "head -1 /usr/bin/limewire" here.
