I am a Jboss newbie and, to some extent, a Linux newbie as well.
The configuration of my machine fulfills the prerequisites listed in the on-line documentation. I have the most recent versions JDK 1.3 and Ant-1.4.1 up and running. Environment variables (such as JBOSS_DIST) and PATH are set as required (e.g. include /usr/local/ant/bin etc.).
But the very first step of the install procedure fails:
[root@hibou bin]# ./run.sh
Couldn't find or load essential class `java/lang/Object' java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError java/lang/Object
./run.sh: line 27: 1848 Aborted (core dumped) java $HOTSPOT $JAXP -classpath $JBOSS_CLASSPATH org.jboss.Main $@
Does anyone have any idea why and how to remediate?
Many thanks in advance.
