    Error installing Limewire.


    When I run LimeWireLinux.bin in either root or user I get the following error.

    Code:
    [....@localhost ......]$ /home/username/Install/LimeWireLinux.bin
    Prepare to install...
    Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
    Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
    
    
    Launching installer...
    
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/zerog/lax/LAX
    I know that java is installed and running because when I run
    Code:
     java -version
    I get the following.

    Code:
     java version "1.4.2_05"
    java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_05-b04)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_05-b04, mixed mode)
    So anyclues of why I am getting this error and what can I do to fix this.

    I will say that I have added the path the my .bash_profile
    Maybe I added it wrong?

    I had some problems installing limewire as well. Let me ask you a few questions first.

    1. Are you using Sun or Blackdown Java?
    2. Are you using the JRE or the SDK?
    3. Did you install Java using RPM or by hand?

    My suggestion would be to make sure you're using Sun's SDK installed by hand. I had problems with Sun's JRE and both the JRE and SDK installed using RPM.

    Im using Suns Java, using the JRE that came preinstalled on Mandrake 10.

    I have an .rpm for JRE1.3.1, but the version on my machine that came with the Install for Mandrake was JRE-1.4.2_05.

    Not sure if this helps, also what do you mean by, ' Install by hand'?

    I had major issues with the Java RPM that came with MDK 10. I'd suggest uninstalling it and installing the SDK (not the JRE) trom Sun's website. It's a .bin file. Execute it in the directory you want it installed (for example, /usr/local/java).

    Remember to tell the limewire installer where the java/bin directory is, so that it can use it during installation.

    Explain..Like commands, Im fairly new.. but I will tell you that through MC I opened the bin file and edited the lin VM_PATH_SEARCH (Or something to that extent to read the path where the bin was located. Still no dice though..
