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.

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. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. 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. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. 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.

Running LimeWire under SuSE-Linux
So, it seems so that many people have problems to run LimeWire under SuSE Linux with the original JDK1.1.8.
The answer is very simple. LimeWire does not work with this Runtime. So you must install a newer version of the Java-Runtime.
You have the possibility to download it from Sun or IBM, or simple take the newer Runtime from your original SuSE-Installation-CD. You can find it in the "pay"-section (i don't know if this location also fit for SuSE-Version befor 7.0).
There you can find the IBMjava2-SDK1.3 and the SunJava2-SDK. These pakages also includes the JRE, but they are needet for the next steps. Only the JRE won't be enought.
Which pakage you prefere, it is up to you. Both are version 1.3.0, and that is new enough for LimeWire. I personaly prefere the IBM-version. You only need once.
So, lets bring your SuSE to work all the time and not only for LimeWire with the newer Java Developer Kit.
First a smal excursion about Java and SuSE.
If you make any Java-requests on your system, the systempath therefor is /usr/lib/java. That is not a directory, it is a symbolical link that points on the Java Developer Kit your system use. So we have to modify this link to the newer version of your Runtime:
All the following steps must be done as root:
For SuSE 7.2 there is a very simple an effektiv way to do that (not perfekt, but it will work):
1. Go to the directory /usr/lib and rename your original symbolical Java-link (that points on the jdk1.1.8) from "java" e.g. to "java-1.1.8" or simple remove it.
2. create with "ln -s /usr/lib/jdk1.3 /usr/lib/java" a new link on the newer Java Developer kit
3. you have to modify the rc.config (you can do that e.g. with yast under Administration -> change configuration). There you have to set the entry "create_javalink" to NO. Otherwise SuSEconfig will restore the original link the next time it runs.
That it is for SuSE 7.2
For all versions of SuSE:
1. change to /sbin/conf.d/ and open with an editor the file "SuSEconfig.alljava"
2. Find the following line:
JAVALINKTO=`rpm -q java java2 IBMJava2-SDK ibmjava2 2>/dev/null | sed s,-[^-]*-[^-]*$,,g | head -n 1`
Simple explaind: Here SuSEconfig is told, which JDK to prefere. "java" stands here for the JDK1.1.8, "java2" for the Sun1.3, "IBMJava2-SDK" for the IBM1.3 ....
So simple remove the first entry "java" from this line and when you only have installed one of the newer SDK-Pakages, it is enough. If you have installed both pakages, the system will first take the "Sun" and than "IBM". You can change the direction if you want.
So, it has to look something like this:
JAVALINKTO=`rpm -q java2 IBMJava2-SDK ibmjava2 2>/dev/null | sed s,-[^-]*-[^-]*$,,g | head -n 1`
If you use the IBM-pakage, you also have to remove the "javarunt"-entry from the next line, the "JRELINKTO=..."
3. Copy a file called ".java_wrapper" from "/usr/lib/jdk1.1.8/bin" to your new SDK-bin-directory, normaly "/usr/lib/jdk1.3/bin"
4. Run "SuSEconfig" and the system will create the new Java-link and will further use the newer JDK each time
Now you can change in the directory where you have extracted LimeWire and can run it by using "sh runlime.sh" or simple "runlime.sh"
That it is.
Hope it will help some people (and sorry for my english).
this is how i did SuSE 7.2 & limewire
LimeWire and SuSE Linux HOW-TO
1. make sure that Java2TM Runtime Environment, v 1.3.1 is installed.if not, go to:
and download j2re-1_3_1-linux-i386-rpm.bin (size = 14,842,795 bytes)
A. unpack bin file with command: sh j2re-1_3_1-i386-rpm.bin
B. unpack rpm file with command: rpm -ivh jre-1.3.1.i386.rpm
2. Install Limewire
unzip/untar the downloaded file from limewire.com - whatever directory you are
currently in is where a new subdirectory LimeWire will be created.
A. locate your path to the java executable. my current path (as of 9/10/2001) is:
B. cd to the new LimeWire dir. open runlime.sh with any text editor. the line that
reads: "java -classpath . RunLime" needs to be either commented out with a #
and a new line added or edited to read: "/your/path/to/java -classpath . RunLime"
##!NOTE!## don't literally type "/your/path/to/java..." but use the location you
found earlier in step 2.A
be sure to save the modifications.
3. Run Limewire
open a shell and at the prompt type: "sh runlime.sh"
it should fire up if everything else was successful
happy filesharing and please do share your files!

Oh, i forgot something to say ...
There are updates for the Java2-SDK and the IBMjava2-SDK-pakages on the SuSE ftp-server.
Please use your online-update-function in Yast2 or simple get it from the ftp. This is only nesessary, if LimeWire won't start.
You can check wich version of Java your SuSE now use by typing "java -version".
