Moderators

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.


The Rules

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. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. 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.

That depends on if you plan on doing development with java or not. If all you want to do is use java supported and ran programs, download the jre. If you are like me and do development with creating programs that run and use java, use the sdk. Since tux.org is a popular download site and you might find yourself waiting to get a turn on the server since it limits it's users to a maximum of 100 at any one time.

ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/linux/deve.../i386/FCS-02b/

Be sure to follow the install guides for which ever one you choose (jre or sdk).
So that your browsers will use the latest java version on your system. I personally recommend using the jdk-1.4.1 versions as the latest limewire 2.5.5 and up utilize added features provided by java 1.4.1 that isn't present in java 1.3.1.

Here is the link for that one:

ftp://metalab.unc.edu/pub/linux/deve...4.1/i386/beta/

altoine

P.S. I also recommend that everyone use the sdk over the jre as you don't ever know when there is a source file for a java program that was custom made for you by a "friend" on the net and all you need to do is compile the program.

For those who are running Debian, this might help.

My system is running Debian unstable, with a freshly installed copy of J2SDK 1.4.1.

The install ran perfectly for me after I ran the following:
ln -s libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2


Regards,


Rex

That is certainly something to look into Rex as that is highly unrelated to a problem with LimeWire in general but a definitely problem for users of Suse for many other java-based applications.

Default launching after install

i am running mandrake 9.0
i got limewire to install after a fair bit of work. my problem is a rather cosmetic one
there is no executeable program to launch limewire.
i can get the program to run - and it works fine - by typing ./runLime.sh in the LimeWire directory from a console window
i tried to add a menu entry so i could launch from my menu instead of opening a terminal and typing it everytime
using menudrake i made the menu entry with the launch command...
/home/darc/LimeWire/./runLime.sh
however it keeps giving me the error that it cannot find the program -- because the launcher is a shell script, i am assuming that the menu is looking for an executable
i tried making a symlink -- that didnt work either
any ideas how i can get limewire to launch from the menu ??
thanks
P.S - the ./runLime.sh command is the only one that will launch the program --
LimeWire -- or any others that i have tried that are supposed to work will not launch it either

This is an easy thing to create.

My instructions (always) will require the use of a terminal or console. I am explaining this for your benefit and more for the many newbies.

let us use "vi" since that type of editor is normally on a majority of *nix operating systems.

type:

vi LimeTime

(You can substitute "LimeTime" for any other name that you prefer that won't conflict with any pre-existing programs)

press:

i

to enable insert mode.

type all that follows:

#/bin/sh
sh $HOME/LimeWire/runLime.sh

(Substitute the path for your chosen absolute path to your installed LimeWire directory)

press:

Esc

to end your editing/insert mode.

type:

:wq

to save/write and quit.

type:

chmod +x LimeTime

(Again substitute "LimeTime" for your preferred executable name)

Test it by typing:

LimeTime

Your program should work without any hitch provided you run it from your home directory.

There are other ways to create an executable using other commands but that will be discussed at a later time when the need arises for now.

I hope this is helpful for you.

I tried what you said --
using vi i typed
#/bin/sh
sh $HOME/LimeWire/runLime.sh

then did

chmod +x LimeTime --( even used that file name lol )

this was the output when i tried to run it --- yes i was in the right directory

Exception in thread "main" java.util.zip.ZipException: No such file or directory
at java.util.zip.ZipFile.open(Native Method)
at java.util.zip.ZipFile.<init>(ZipFile.java:112)
at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:117)
at java.util.jar.JarFile.<init>(JarFile.java:55)

any ideas ???
thanks

This is also a problem with Debian Woody. It's worth noting that on woody, at least, libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 is itself a symlink to libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so, so a better command, albeit possibly not as version-independent, would be

ln -s libstdc++-3-libc6.2-2-2.10.0.so libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2

And it should be noted, for people with possibly less experience, that either command should be preceeded by

cd /usr/lib

BTW, thanks so much for this! Getting limewire installed and running remotely for my son on his Linux box (he's in Maine, I'm in Texas) has been a PITA, but it looks like we're in the clear now!

-----------------------------
no need to repsond.. i figured it out
i did a classpath statement -- just because i happened to come accross a java class error during this process.... and voila everything works perfect now... not only can i run limewire from the konsole... i can now launch it from a desktop icon...

thanks for the help

1.) How familiar are you with linux console commands? You are saying that when you type this command:

rpm -qa | grep j2

You get no output?

Otherwise, it sounds like a typo somewhere.

If you do get an output, please post it here.

2.) I would like to know if you are using, Sun's, Blackdown's, or IBM's java VM. (This would be answered by your output from Question #1 if you are not certain yourself.

Eagerly awaiting your answers,
Altoine

3.) You are using bash?

If there isn't any typo you might simply have to logout and then back in again to update your path. Otherwise, it will not work before unless you manually type the export commands directly on the command line and not in .bashrc or .bash_profile.
