LInux program install trouble
    #3119067 - 09/10/04 04:52 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm trying to install Limewire,but I could running into this error message:

Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
Configuring the installer for this system's environment...
No Java virtual machine could be found from your PATH
environment variable. You must install a VM prior to
running this program.

.
I know for a fact I have Java runtime environment installed in /usr/bin/java.

Anybody know what that error message means exactly or how to rectify the problem? Any help would be appreciated (I'm still fairly new to Linux).

try updating your java client

type this at cli:

java -version

know that usr/bin/java is a symlink
etc/alternatives should contain the absolute path

I just got Java installed,so I know it's the newest version,and those online tests at Java.com says it's up and running.

I used the command: PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin/java

and then I did: echo $PATH
and it's in there,but it I'm still getting that message after I run the command: ./LimeWireLinux.bin

also, i was trying to tell you that you may have to:

A) add the absolute path to your VM which will be something like /usr/lib/j2re.... try grep java to find it

or

B) manually symlink /usr/bin/java to the absolute path to your VM

Cool. I just fucked around with my PATH environment variable a little and got it working. Thanks much.

I know this is really annoying newbie stuff,but how do I delete stuff in the environment variable? (Can you give me the correct syntax for that?) I put in all kinds of garbage that I don't need. I don't have any Linux/Unix books handy at the moment.

check /etc/profile

IIRC, path env vars are not permanent, IOW a reboot will possibly break your JVM again... depending on what you did to get it working.

for permanent changes you want the env vars set in /etc/profile

i'm a bit unclear as to where, specifically, you should enter these vars but IME at the end works.

I got it installed,but after I rebooted Limewire wouldn't launch,but now I know why- I didn't mess with /etc/profile.

Everything's gravy now. Thanks a lot.
