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.

Default Kaffe

I think you all have Kaffe installed. Check with:

rpm -q kaffe

Become the root user and remove it (unless you really, really want it) with:

rpm -e kaffe

Kaffe is an open source version of java that implements Java 1.1, an older version of Java.

I'll assume you all have a 1.3.1 version of Java from Sun installed and correctly added to your PATH environment variable. :-)

If you really, really want Kaffe installed for some reason, try putting the java bin directory as the first entry in the PATH variable.

Default PATH???

I'm new to Linux, can you tell me wher I can manipulate this PATH variable everyone is talking about. I'm having similar problems installing Limewire, except it doesn't detect a JVM at all. I downloaded the appropriate package from sun, installed it and the Limewire install keeps saying to fix my PATH, how do I do this???

Smile PATH variable

You can set it in either /etc/profile or ~/.bash_profile (.bash_profile being in your home directory). /etc/profile is system wide while .bash_profile is specific to you. If you open either of those files in a text editor you'll see a PATH= line with directory locations separated by colons.

I set my PATH in my .bash_profile file. Mine looks like this:


Yours will be similar but probably different. Open a terminal and type:

which java

That should give you a full path to your java executable. Copy everything from that up to the bin directory (ie /usr/java/BlahBlah/bin) and add that line of text onto the end of your PATH= line.

Log out, log back in and test your handiwork by opening a terminal and typing:

java -version

You should see the version information for java.

Unhappy .bash_profile

I tried to write exactly what you said in my .bash_profile (had to change the directories a little to fit), anyway I restarted my machine and the path still remains the same. I still can't install limewire because it doesn't know where the JVM is. Are you using Mandrake 8? Cause if you are and what you are doing is working please provide exact details as to where I should insert the PATH command you mentioned earlier. So far I've tried everything and haven't been able to chang my PATH!

Thanks in advance.

Useing Mandrake 8.1 and i had to do the following...

UNinstalled the kaffe rpm, (as mentioned in the earlier thread)
rpm -q kaffe
rpm -e kaffe

Installed the rpm of java from sun.
sh j2re-1_3_1_01-linux-i386-rpm.bin
rpm -Uvh jre-1.3.1_01.i386.rpm

Added the path to java to my $PATH
export PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin:/usr/java/jre1.3.1_01/bin
NOTE that the jre1.3.1XXXXX may differ...
(edit your users .bashrc, or .bash_profile, or system wide configs to make this permenant)
Run the limewire isntaller...
sh LimeWireLinux.bin

Not sure why/how/where Sun messes up their rpm's/JRE so it dont auto add itself to the path. GUess thats a security issue?

Default Great, thanks!!!

You are the first one to explain simply and effectively the PATH problem!!
I hope this will be an example for all those "geeks" who develop but can not turn anyone in using their software.
