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.

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.

Angry Compile Limewire

Can ANYONE tell me how to compile Limewire? I have downloaded the source code, changed the section I wanted to change and not I can't seem to figure out how to compile all the little pieces in teh source code to make one big happy running program.

I have tried installing ant, it won't run and I have no clue what the installation instructions say. I have trie installing eclipse and nothing happens. I have tried some other compilers as well, but without know what to type in the boxes, I am getting nowhere.

Anyone who can give me some detailed step by step guidance on how to do this - whew- I'd really appreciate it.

Actuall error messages and more detailed symptoms would be helpful. Without more details, I can only make guesses (and not even very educated guesses) as to what's going wrong.

I'll write this with the assumption that you're familiar with the Bourne Again Shell (bash) and are comfortable with Apple's Terminal command line. If you're not familiar with bash, ask again and I'll try and walk you through it.

You'll need to make sure your PATH environment variable includes the directory for the ant command (actually an sh shell script that uses the *nix shebang to pretend it's a binary). You'll also need to either have ANT_HOME set, or else have ant installed somewhere that ant expects to be installed (look at the bin/ant shell script to see which places it checks). The version of ant I have installed looks in /opt/ant and ${HOME}/opt/ant, in that order.

On Darwin (OS X), if JAVA_HOME isn't set, the ant script sets it to a sane default.

After you have compiled LW, you'll need to use runosx instead of run.

Default Hello! - Progress

Thanks for the info. I'll get right on it. I am having trouble with installing Ant. I have actually been working on it for the past two days and I have never seen it run. I will get right back with you after I try your suggestions. No, I am not very familiar with Terminal, but guess what, I am painfully learning.

Thank you so much again!

Default More Information

OK - here is a lot of info so hang on.

When I try to run any of the decompressed programs from the ant file, I am dragging them from the finder to the terminal window and then pressing "enter". This however accomplishes nothing. Sometimes I get the error message "permission denied," then I enter "sudo" and repeat the process. I then get the error "no command found."

I have gone through the install guide found here:

He says to install it in the usr/local directory, but there isn't one on my computer. I don't know if it is because it's 10.4 or what. The first time through, I used terminal to create a local directory, but that didn't work. Then I went with the directory it seem as though the computer was looking for other programs in which was /usr/bin. I followed that installation all the way through and everything seemed to be going fine.

I used the vi program to set the .login and .profile file the way the instructions said. However, the -/ command didn't work and I found that if I just used the command "Vi .login" it worked. I don't know if that is an OS 10.4 change or not. Everything checked out find until I got down to the part about checking my path.

I really don't know what that means. The path check out that he had listed there did not work for me and I don't know where to go from there. When I entered "which ant" The answer was "no ant" so here I am lost.

As far as what you had typed earlier. I actually have no idea what Bourne Again Shell is. I am getting comfortable with the terminal command line. I keep hearing about bash and I think I use it but I don't really know what it is.

OK - how do I make sure that the path environment variable includes the directory for the command? I think I have ANT_HOME set. I set it per the website that I included in this post. However, I don't know how to check it. I also don't know how to find out which place it checks. Yes the opt directory was another choice according the installation instructions. However, I can't find that on my computer either. I am aware of all the hidden files, but I have been using terminal to access the directory structure and my understanding is that they aren't hidded in terminal.

Also, when I invoke ant, what is the executable file and should it work in any of the terminal shells or just bas or just csh etc... I have gone through all the files and drug them to the terminal window, none of them make anything other than errors happen.

Whew.... I think that's it for now. My email address is Please feel free to use it. Did I mention THANKYOU!

Default Discovery

In fact the more I look at this I wonder, "Should I be able to go to the apache-ant-1.6.5/bin directory and type ant and have the ant program be executed? Becuase I can't. I type ant and I get "bash: ant: command not found"

Should ant run in that circumstance?
