    What's Frost Wire? Sounds like the title of a children's book.

    Just like Limewire. Limewire would be fine. Can someone help with the install of limewire?

    I get an error message: j2re >= 1.4.1 is needed by LimeWire-free-4.12.3-0.i386

    Thanks

    I don't know the exact official procedure, but you could download the "Ubuntu/Debian" package from here :
    http://www.frostwire.com/index.php?title=Main_Page

    Then convert it to a Mandriva package (.rpm) like that :
    Code:
    fakeroot alien -r FrostWire-4.10.9-2.i586.deb
    Then install the resulting package (as root) :
    Code:
    rpm -i frostwire-4.9.11-2.noarch.rpm
    Make sure you have Java installed before doing that.

    You need to install Java first :

    The requested URL /sources/official/2006/i586/j2re-1.5.0.5-1.2006mcnl.i586.rpm was not found on this server.
    Apache Server at www.mandrivaclub.nl Port 80

    I get this message. I would assume they moved the file. They are good for that.

    Check this out Download the Linux rpm to your desktop. Right click on it and choose Open With>Software installer

    Install it (you'll need to enter your password) then open a terminal and type limewire. Go through the setup procedure. As you now know, you need Java installed. Good luck!

    Yop, you would need to install both "fakeroot" and "alien" using Mandriva package management. They should be in Mandriva repositories.
