locate java | grep bin
(you'll see something like /usr/lib/java/bin or /usr/local/java/bin... etc.)
then, as the user you'll be using to run limewire:
PATH=$PATH:/home/user/java/bin (or /usr/lib/java/bin ... whatever it showed above)
export PATH

well i tried doing what you suggested, but it wouldn't work properly. here is what i did...

----------------------------------------------------------------
[user1@localhost Desktop]$ su
Password:
[root@localhost Desktop]# updatedb
[root@localhost Desktop]# locate java | grep bin
[root@localhost Desktop]# locate java | grep bin
[root@localhost Desktop]# exit
----------------------------------------------------------------

... as you can see, after i typed "locate java | grep bin" it didn't display the file path as it was supposed to.

any ideas? sad.gif

It loads on my system, after a wile. In general, when other pages will load, but one wont, its usually the sight, not your computer. In windows sometimes certian spyware will high-jack address requests, but thats not a problem in linux.

If its loading now then the sight was down, if not, they there may be something very wiered with something in your system, but I bet the sight was just down.

Well i was able to open the webpage, but then after i downloaded and tried to install the newest version for FC2 (licq-1.3.0-1.i386.rpm) i get the following error...


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[user1@localhost Desktop]$ rpm -i licq-1.3.0-1.fc2.i386.rpm

Hi,

fedora core 2 has yum...and it's easier to use, there are no bells and whistles (this is how you put it?) in the way...


just type yum update

Sincerely
Robert B

CODE
yum install program_name
yum update
yum upgrade
yum remove program_name

just type yum in console to see the last

Robert B, I tried what you suggested, but it didn't work, as you can see what happened below...

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[user1@localhost user1]$ yum update
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 1 Dag Wieers' repository

Please ask your sysadmin to update the headers on this system.
[user1@localhost user1]$
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


DS2K3, 404 is file not found. so that could also mean that i'm trying to connect to a URL that doesn't exist.


...Mayyybe i screwed up the URLs in the "update" files, but i don't remember where they are located or what URLs they should be. Hope that gives someone a better idea as to what's going on. Any better ideas? sad.gif

does anyone have any idea as to why the website www.licq.org will not open on my FC2 system. I tried both Opera and Mozilla browsers. Was the website just down at the time or might there be something wrong with my system configuration?

QUOTE (Termina @ Nov 30 2004, 08:54 AM)
It says java isn't installed because it's probally not in your path.

IIRC, java is usually installed to your HOME directory. Find that folder, and:

PATH=$PATH:/home/user/java/bin (or whatever the java folder is called)
export PATH

If you're doing this as root, please add the path (/home/user/java/bin) to the end of the path already in /root/.bash_profile


This should fix your java problem.

OK i usually login as a different user and only use root to do "serious" stuff. I don't want to screw this up... so when i open a terminal what commands should i issue? i'm assuming these first...

$ su
# PATH=$PATH:/home/user/java/bin (or whatever the java folder is called)
# export PATH


and then what ?

I've been using Opera for 3 years now and you do have to buy it to remove the banner ad. Sometimes they have a deal where you can get a Windows and a Linux version for less than buying 2, in the event you have a dual boot OS. Opera is by far the best browser out there and it's worth the $40. The online support is superb, unlike Mozilla.

thanks for the words.

so what about a comparison to Windows' "Safe Mode" ? Is there any such analogy in Linux? If not, why not?


also, why is there no GOOD information on how to play music/movies (mpeg, mp3, avi, mov, etc.) for linux systems???

Open your file browser, and sewt it to diaply hiddenf iles (in konqueoror you can do this from the iew menu). Most programs have a hidden directory with the config data in, inside the users home directory

eg, my home directory is /home/richard and my xmms settings are in /home/richard/.xmms (the . makes it hidden)

Some KDE (and maybe gnome etc.) programs keep the config inside a general KDE folder, which is a bit harder to find things in.

In that case, your environment vairbales arent setup correctly. Double check the EXPORt statements. Each suer who need sto use the VM, needs their bashrc file edited. (If you are running as root, thenupdate root's too)

I am trying to follow this guy's instructions...

http://home.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc2-tips.php

I figured out a couple of my other posted questions by myself, but this JVM/LimeWire problem still remains. I've been working on it on and off for the past couple days. Here is an update as to a few things I've done since my last post, which might help someone out there figure out what's going on...

1) I checked the "Add/Remove Applications" (clicked details for the "Graphical Internet" section) and couldn't find anything related to Java.

2) I deleted two Java directories (located at /usr/share/java and /usr/share/opera/java) thinking that I could trick the installation program to thinking that the JVM wasn't installed yet.

3) I tried re-downloading the .bin file from java.com and reinstall the .rpm that is included, but it still gives me the same "already-installed" error message that i posted above.

Perhaps there is an install-log file somewhere that's making the installation file think a JVM is already installed? i'm stumped. blink.gif

I have FC2 and i'm wondering a couple basic things...

1) When browsing the file system with Nautilus (i use the GNOME GUI), how do you make it so that when you open a file it opens in the same window? (rather than a new window every time)

2) In the terminal, anytime i use the "man" command i get the help page to display correctly... but then when i (pressing spacebar) get to the end of the document, it has a small black box highlighting the word (END) and I can't get it to exit the Man page and return to the command prompt without just manually closing the window and opening a new terminal. I've tried SPACEBAR, CTRL-X, ESC, RETURN, CTRL-ALT-X, TAB.... nothing works sad.gif Is it possible to exit the man page without just closing the entire terminal?

After looking through multiple preferences and doing a couple searches I couldn't find anything. blink.gif

I use Opera, Gaim, and XMMS on another username, but when I login to a different username none of my Gaim preferences, away messages, Opera toolbar settings, favorites, XMMS settings, or playlists are available. Everything is reset for that user.

Basically, what i am asking is how can i copy all of these settings from one user to another? and where do these programs generally store these configuration settings (so i know for future reference)? Thanks smile.gif

perhaps this information will help figure out why i was able to remove that error i initially posted about.

ALSO, if possible, I only want to use one system for updating. Does it look like i have any repository conflicts?

ok NEVERMIND. i figured it out myself... don't ask me how i did it though.... i followed random update instructions at this website...

http://home.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc2-tips.php

I did the steps for -

1) adding support for other repositories
2) the mp3 plugin
3) the flash plugin
4) real player
5) NTFS driver

... all of these installs were successful. i tested them and everything worked.


THEN i just issued these commands...

# su
# yum list | more

(saw the kernel and openoffice.org rpms that were giving me trouble before...)

# yum install openoffice.org
# yum install kernel

(these installs were successful... so...)

# yum update

and it all worked! no more flashing red icon. biggrin.gif anyone know what i did to make it work?

so Jim, why is defragmenting unnecessary with an ext3 filing system?

I have FC2. I'm looking for some good comparison info for going from Windows to Linux... for example...

1) DOS commands ---> Terminal commands
2) Windows' "program files" ---> what would be the equivalent in linux????
3) Defragmenting ---> Is this even necessary with linux???
4) Windows' registry ---> ???
5) And any other info would be greatly appreciated...

Also, I've never seen spyware/adware or viruses on linux systems... so i'm assuming that there's no need for sweepers to remove such things, but why is this?
