There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.
1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.
2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.
8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.
9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once.

Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.
10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.
11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.
12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.
13.

Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.
Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.
Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

How do I install LimeWire in Linux?
Tried sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin
Preparing to install...
The included VM could not be extracted. Please try to download
the installer again and make sure that you download using 'binary'
mode. Please do not attempt to install this currently downloaded copy.
Please Help Me!
After I installed uncompress I get this message :
SIGSEGV received at bffff31c in /tmp/install.dir.5735/Linux/resource/jre/lib/linux/native_threads/libjava.so. Processing terminated
Writing stack trace to javacore6813.txt ... OK
./LimeWireLinux.bin: line 1: 6813 Segmenteringsfel /tmp/install.dir.5735/Linux/resource/jre/bin/jre -Djava.compiler= -noverify -cp "::/tmp/install.dir.5735/InstallerData:/tmp/install.dir.5735/InstallerData/installer.zip" com.zerog.lax.LAX "/tmp/install.dir.5735/temp.lax" /tmp/env.properties.5735
I had the same problem, now I've got a new one...
I've got the LimeWireLinux 1.4 .bin in my home dir.
I use Mandrake Linux 8.0, so I popped the CD in and installed the ncompress rpm (easy to do, mandrake even has a GUI for these sorts of things now).
But now, every time I run the bin, I get a long error message, and occasionally my entire system will lock up (which is very unusual for Linux)
It goes like this:
[user@name dir]$ ./LimeWireLinux.bin
Preparing to install...
SIGSEGV received at bffff31c in /tmp/install.dir.1441/Linux/resource/jre/lib/linux/native_threads/libjava.so Processing terminated
Writing stack trace to javacore2519.txt ... OK
./LimeWireLinux.bin: line 1: 2519 Segmentation fault /tmp/install.dir.1441/Linux/resource/jre/bin/jre -Djava.compiler= -noverify -cp "::/tmp/install.dir.1441/InstallerData:/tmp/install.dir.1441/InstallerData/installer.zip" com.zerog.lax.LAX "/tmp/install.dir.1441/temp.lax" /tmp/env.properties.1441
Then I get either a new prompt, or my linux system crashes, neither of which is good.
I'm pretty sure that this is the problem with the new linux kernel. When they rolled the latest linux kernel out, older Java versions didn't work with it. I think that this one will:
That tends to bring up another problem...
I tried throwing up a java install of Limewire a few days ago, and in the process tried to d/l and install jre1.3 from Sun, but installing a new version of java such that the old one is replaced seems nightmarish due to the distro differences. The .bin will install fine wherever I tell it to, and will work from it's installed location, the problem is the o/s doesn't know that new version is there.
So, my question is, Sun displays a "Red Hat RPM" version, and I was tempted to download that as RPM's eliminate this problem. Don't RPM's essentially work no matter what distro you throw them on? Must I download the straight .bin install and tinker with environment variables until I replace the old java?
update on the situation...
I downloaded jre 1.3 AGAIN... installed it AGAIN to /usr/local/jre1.3.1/ This time I noticed the "control panel" application it comes with, and found an option in there that could be set to point to the new version at the location I just installed.
No go, any 'java -version' command at a $ prompt gives the old version. I've no clue how to ensure that Linux knows there's a new version of Java installed, there is no HOWTO on this and Sun's website is completely inadequate (it doesn't tell you more than "execute the bin", well DUH).
What's needed are specific instructions as to how to replace one's old version of Java on various distributions. Does anyone have ANY idea how to do this? It's quite annoying to not be able to use software over such simple impasses.
If you want to ensure that any version of a command is accessed from the command line then you make sure that the path to it occurs first in your PATH environment variable.
You have some kind of .profile (.bash_profile, .login, .kshrc, or whatever) in your login directory where you could specify this. You may need to set JAVA_HOME as well. i.e.
export PATH JAVA_HOME
This depends on what shell you are using - likely bash (man bash)
Still not working
Greg, thanks for all the help. I managed to get the path updated, and the correct version number appears when I do a java -version...(thanks for the instruction on that too, always good to know where to go to manipulate environment variables) however I'm still getting that message above (the long one that was causing system lockups). I've tried it as root, as a user, from console/terminal, etc.. nothing seems to work.
