I am running Mandrake 10 and need to install Java virtual machine in order to install LimeWire. Can anyone please tell me where to find this and how to do it?

howdy ...

according the question in the first post: just jump to http://java.sun.com/...2/download.html and grab the J2SE v 1.4.2_04 JRE package. This should be a binary installer that will give you the Java-StandardEdition VM.

ad posting #2: I don't know LimeWire, but as it is Java based there might be a chance that you can add a commandline parameter that tells the app where to find the virtual machine - something like this e.g. ...

user@machine$ limewire -vm /usr/java/j2sdk1.5.0/jre/bin

If LimeWire is somewhat similar in its startup-procedure to other Java-apps (like "Eclipse" e.g.) it should tell where it was searching for the virtual-machine files.

good luck with this
