    Limewire site? YaSt install?


    Hey Ya'll,

    I'd like to install Limewire using YaSt but don't know if there is a site I can point YaSt too. Anyone know of one?

    If there isn't a site out there has anyone installed Limewire without YaSt?

    Thanks for the reply.

    You should be able to just download the RPM from their site and double-click to install it with YaST. Here's a link I found:

    Hey Techiemoe,

    when I do, I get the following error

    Limewire free requires j2re >= 1.4.1-

    So I guess my question is how do I resolve this dependency conflict?

    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    1. cd to the directory where it is located

    2. become root

    3. code

    rpm -Uvh --nodeps LimeWireLinux.rpm


    this will resolve the dependency conflict

    I do not recommend doing this. Rather than resolving the conflict, the "--nodeps" option simply ignores them. This will result in a broken package and possibly a borked system. I recommend installing what the RPM asked for, a version of the JRE 1.4 or greater. If your distro doesn't have official RPMs for it, you can download it directly from Sun:

    Ok. I don't recommend doing this for any other software though.

    Hey geese and techiemoe,

    I finally got Limewire working. Thanks for the help. Just so readers will know the command to tell the system to ignore dependencies still wouldn't let me install Limewire. I went to the Jave site and downloaded the JRE 1.4, installed it and then Limewire installed as it should.

    Again, thanks folks, appreciate the help.
