I installed java (from Sun) as per Stanton Finley's notes and it went smooth. I was able to use limewire with no problems.
However i got greedy and installed Azureus using yum, which had 'java' as a dependancy so it went ahead and installed the java from the repos, among other packages.
Ever since, I get a blank window when running limewire.
I have uninstalled the java from yum, and re-installed the java from Sun, but I am still getting the blank window with limewire, for both normal user and root (i had to test it).
NOTE: I was going to attach a screenshot, but the window is literally a grey square
Any ideas? thanks
