Hi - Once you have Java running, and if you feel adventurous, you might also try Frostwire. It's the same as Limewire, but with a few extra features.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Hi - fair point about Frostwire ....
The best way to install Limewire is to set up some repositories using urpmi (you can use a terminal or the Mandriva Control Centre). Make sure you add 'contrib', which is just a directory full of rpms which didn't make it into the final release version of Mandy.
Then become root and type urpmi limewire . It should install. To start it, type 'Limewire' inside a terminal (not as root!). It should add itself to your gui menu after you restart your box.
That's the method I used the other day and it worked. Make sure you have the java repository set up too.
Edit: I don't have any experience with Mandy 2007, but I assume the repositories are similar for apps?I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
