HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

To use the online installer you'll have to use native shlwapi, otherwise Limewire will be unable to download the installer files:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="shlwapi=n" wine  LimeWireWin.exe

after  copying shlwapi.dll from a windows partition to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

(at one point (during java install) the installer seems to hang, but just wait a while and the installation will succeed)
