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.
3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.
4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.
5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.
6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.
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.

Limewire 1.7 and SuSE linux 7.2
ive got limewire 1.7 and SuSE linux 7.2, it all installed ok when i ran the command "sh LimeWireLinux.bin" and it all installed, but now when i run limewire it says that its got a fault and shows this message
has any body got any ideas about what this could be?
LimeWire 1.7 and SuSE Linux 7.2
Well, I assume you've all used the installer and you've all got a JRE or SDK 1.3.1. If you're unsure which version of Java you have open a terminal and type:
If you see a 1.3.1 in there, you're looking good. If you don't have 1.3.1 you'd better get it. :-) The 'Running LimeWire under SuSE' has advice on installing Java on SuSE:
Running LimeWire under SuSE-Linux
I don't know much about the SuSE distro specifically so I don't know why this is an issue. I can install LimeWire with the installer and run it okay on my RedHat 7.1, Java SDK 1.3.1 system.
The problem is that Java is looking for some classes (javax/swing/JTextArea etc) and can't find them. Specifically it's looking for the Swing classes. Swing is like a toolkit that Java developers use to develop the graphical interface to their programs. Java should already know where they are, but it seems it doesn't. We'll tell Java specifically where to find the swing classes.
Now, because you used the installer we can probably just edit the LimeWire17.lax. Try this:
1. Open LimeWire17.lax in your favourite text editor. It's in the LimeWire17 directory.
2. Go to the LAX.CLASS.PATH section of the file. It's near the top of the file.
3. Now, see that 'swing.jar' entry in the lax.class.path= string? Change that and only that to: /usr/java/jdk1.3.1/jre/lib/rt.jar
NOTE: /usr/java/jdk1.3.1 is the java directory on my system. Your system may be different! You must find out where jre/lib/rt.jar is on your system. Try the locate command. Open a terminal and type: locate rt.jar
4. Save the file and that should be it.
rt.jar contains the Java runtime classes. Swing is included. That will maybe work. It works on my system but as I said, LimeWire works with the default installation on my system anyway.
If you get more errors about classes not being found, the same principle applies. You just have to figure out in which directory or in which .jar file that class is hiding and then add that location on the end of the lax.class.path string. Make sure you seperate each entry with a colon.
Anyway, try the steps outlined above first and let me know if it works. :-)

now there's another problem
I have done all the things you said:
I've got the newest jre-1.3.1_01 and I changed the LimeWire.lax file.
now I have a new problem: when I type ./LimeWire17 there comes the following message:
computer:~/LimeWire17 > ./LimeWire17

then there is the prompt again. what else is to do to make the programm running?
./LimeWire17: line 1: 5979 Abgebrochen "/usr/lib/jdk1.1.8/bin/jre"
That part looks significant. It seems as well as the lastest JRE you have an old JDK installed, 1.1.8. Unless you really need it, I suggest you remove it. It seems that LimeWire is using this version of java instead of the 1.3.1 version. This explains why the Swing classes weren't being found (the Swing classes are new, relatively speaking).
Remove the old JDK and try again. Make sure you add the Java 1.3.1 bin directory to your PATH variable. Additionally, you shouldn't need to include the changes in the lax file now either. Java should find rt.jar by itself.
SuSe 7.2 installation of LimeWire 1.7
SuSE 7.2 comes with java 1.1.8. This version is obsolete, but it is the last JDK that can be redistributed by third parties.
You have two alternatives: install IBM's JDK 1.3.0 which is included in the SuSE distribution, or download Sun's JDK 1.3.1 or higher. I have installed 1.4.0beta2 and it works.
After installing a new JDK, become root and re-link '/usr/lib/java' to where your JDK has been installed.
mv /usr/lib/java /usr/lib/java1.1.8
ln -s /opt/j2sdk1.4.0 /usr/lib/java
Now you got rid of all 1.1.8 stuff. Also you could have removed the 1.1.8 with Yast2.
Then type 'java -version' and voila. Now you can download LimeWire, and install.
