LimeWire P2P

Guys,

I am trying to install LimeWire P2P network on my FC2 box and downloaded the file called "LimeWireLinux.bin".
I thought the website would have instructions on how to problerl install it, but it does not.
I was just wondering what my next steps would be to get the application proberly installed and running on my Linux FC2 machine.

Thanks

if the file is executable, simply issue this command in a terminal: ./LimeWireLinux.bin

Code:
[root@carlwill root]# ./LimeWireLinux.bin
-bash: ./LimeWireLinux.bin: No such file or directory
However when I view that current dir, I can see the file.
Code:
[root@carlwill carlos]# ls
bookmark.htm  HK_USP_Compact.pdf  icons              pics
Desktop       hlds_l              LimeWireLinux.bin  thunderbird

1) To see the permissions on the files in a directory, you need to use ls -l.

2) You will probably need to chmod +x LimeWireLinux.bin - that should make it executable.

If you look on the website all they say is
# Linux - Open a shell and cd (change directory) to the directory where you downloaded the installer.
At the prompt type: sh ./LimeWireLinux.bin

I have just installed core 3 and if I try to install it the script keeps failing .
Hope you have better luck with core 2, I previously had it running under rh9 but not Fedora.

The "chmod +x LimeWareLinux.bin" is a command you enter. You can also do as anmb suggests.

Thats what I did in FC2 and it installed quite easily. The only thing is that it does not setup an icon or a menu item. For awhile I had to type in the file name "runLimeWire" to start it, but I finally managed to put an icon on my desktop, but I don't remember how.

Here's what it looks like.

If you really can't get it working, try gtk-gnutella, available on sf.net

To create the desktop icon just right click on the desktop and create launcher....browse to where "runLimeWire" is in your home dir to set the command launch. From there choose an icon you like.

I got the GUI installer and just kept the default install location at /root.

Now I have a dir called /root/Limewire

Code:
[root@carlwill LimeWire]# ls
commons-httpclient.jar  libIdleTime.so                     root
commons-logging.jar     LimeWire                           runLime.sh
COPYING                 LimeWire_Installer_InstallLog.log  runLime.sh~
daap.jar                LimeWire.jar                       SOURCE
data.ser                LimeWire.lax                       themes.jar
hashes                  logicrypto.jar                     tritonus.jar
i18n.jar                looks.jar                          UninstallerData
icu4j.jar               MessagesBundle.properties          update.ver
id3v2.jar               MessagesBundles.jar                vorbis.jar
jcraft.jar              mp3sp14.jar                        xerces.jar
jl011.jar               ProgressTabs.jar                   xml.war
jmdns.jar               pub1.key
lax.jar                 README.txt
Now I don't know what to do to open the program. When I read the read me file, it says to just run the command below:

Code:
[root@carlwill LimeWire]# sh LimeWire.jar
LimeWire.jar: LimeWire.jar: cannot execute binary file

Well seems you installed this as root-not good, redo it as your username and then link your desktop launcher to the runlimewire in your home folder. Uninstall the other one by going to wherever it install and do something like: sh uninstall.
