    Does Limewire load and then display that error is it that instead of loading limewire you only get that message? How are you running it-- through a menu item, a shortcut on the desktop or in a terminal? If you go into a terminal and type lime and then hit tab to autofill in, and then hit enter does it run?

    Updating the kernel is the only time you have to reboot after installing or updating software in linux.

    I wouldn't worry about it, it was probably just a typo the first time round. Glad you got it going.
