Postby 1slipperyfish » Sun Jul 24, 2005 3:25 pm

hello i am running mandriva 2005 le and i canot seem to install using urpmi?
i have already installed jre in /usr/java the rpm is in /home/paul and when i try to install it in /home/paul(as i cannot find where you are supposed to install it) i get
Code: Select all
Some package requested cannot be installed:
LimeWire-free-4.8.1-0.i386 (due to unsatisfied j2re[>= 1.4.1])

but i have jre1.5.0_04 installed? also i tried to install limewire in /usr/java bit i don't seem to have permission to do so?
any help would be appreciated as i've been at it since 12 o'clock and my head hurts :cry:

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 :? i have used rmdir, rm -r but even after i go through all of the files individually(there are a lot :shock: ) using rm -r, when i use l -l they are still listed and if i open konqueror i can still see them :?:
i have tried typing(as root) get off my hard drive you son of a bitch :!: and there they still are :?
i have tried playing velvet revolver(quite loud too) but still they are there :?:
is there anything i can do to get rid of them(other than a re-install)??
or do i have to go outside and find some suitable birching sticks and thrash it to winthin an inch of it's life :?: :roll: 8) :D

As root:

rm -rf /opt/java

rm -rf /usr/java

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

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

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

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.
