Code:
Some package requested cannot be installed:

Did you install java as an rpm? The rpm database only knows about aplications installed using rpm. You could always use the --allow-force option to override if you are sure you know what you are doing.

You tried using "rpm -Uvh --nodeps LimeWire-free-4.8.1-0.i386" this is not the best option but it should work. The recommended option is to uninstall your binary and use the RPM of j2re instead.

i have downloaded the jre rpm the problem i am now having is removing the directories /opt/java and usr/java Confused i have used rmdir, rm -r but even after i go through all of the files individually(there are a lot Shocked ) using rm -r, when i use l -l they are still listed and if i open konqueror i can still see them Question
i have tried typing(as root) get off my hard drive you son of a bitch Exclamation and there they still are Confused

As root:

rm -rf /opt/java

rm -rf /usr/java

horrible way to treat a filesystem, but it's your installation. Shocked

There's nothing wrong with watching bad girls Rhakios...

On the other hand, anyone watching Bad Girls needs serious help Laughing

After 1sf (troll) has been telling us about his career in porno, over on the PCPlus forums, I had to practise all the restraint I posess.
