    install jBoss 5.0.1.GA on ubuntu 11.04 desktop

    Halfdome Dog Newbie

      Hello,

      I am trying to install jBoss as on my ubuntu desktop. I have followed the instructions from http://www.surajitray.com/coders-corner/jboss-5-1-on-ubuntu-10-04/ with the exception of having another directory called jboss-5.1.0.GA that lies under /usr/local/jboss. I am recieving the following error when trying to execute "sudo /etc/init.d/jboss start": "/etc/init.d/jboss: 31: Bad substitution". Being a new user to jBoss, I am a little lost at this point. Any and all help will be greatly appreiciated.

       

      Thank you in advance,

          Looks like that the script for ubuntu that you have build is wrong or you edit wrong.

          See line 31 of that script.

          Maybe you add 'set -x' to the script and post the output.

            Wolf-Dieter,

            Thank you for the reply. I have checked line 31 of my script and found JBOSS_BIND_ADDR=${JBOSS_HOST:"-b 0.0.0.0"}. I am not quite sure where to add 'set-x' to my scipt so I just added the contents of my script below. Hopefully it helps.

              If there is no fault by copy'n'paste it looks like that the " quote after -b 0.0.0.0 is not correct.

              Check whether it is the same as the first and also the same as the other ones.

                I made sure that the quote after -b 0.0.0.0 is the same as the first and that the quotes are the same as the others in the file. But I am still recieving the error. I actually commented line 31 out and I am still recieving the error. If you have any other suggestions, that would be great.

                  First, if you try to add files, please attach it instead of posting. User edit after you post your text. It makes our job easier.

                   

                  I apply the changes to a new jboss-init_redhat.sh and attach it, hope that help. You might diff it to yours (I hoe I have the same 5.1.0 version as you)
