Without knowing the OS you are using it is difficult to help.
I am running
GNU/Linux Kernel 2.6.20-rc6
I am having exactly the same problem....HOWEVER, the server actually does startup after about FIVE minutes and nothing unusual thereafter.
I am running jboss4.2.1 on centos 5 with the openssl-0.9.8e.tar, apr-1.2.9.tar and tomcat-native-1.1.10-src.tar
Please help me out. thanks.
I have already fixed the problem.
The problem is regarding the random-file.
Add the following to your run.sh
I am still having problems ......
