Apache tomcat is used for serving Java servlets and JSP pages. It has a
startup.sh script. It works in RH 7.0 (including 2.2.17) But it does not
work in Wolverine. Problem #1: Java (1.3) fails to execute. Reason:
the "cut" command has been moved from /usr/bin to /bin. Solution: ln -
s /bin/cut /usr/bin/cut. Problem #2 (after problem #1 is solved): tomcat's
startup.sh hangs -- it remains in a running state and burns no CPU, but
doesn't execute to completion. Reason: I don't know. HELP! Solution: If I
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install java 1.3, apache tomcat, and $JAVA_HOME and $TOMCAT_HOME
environment variables. Create link for /bin/cut as /usr/bin/cut.
2. Run tomcat's startup.sh
Actual Results: Watch the startup.sh script just hang in a state of limbo.
Expected Results: startup.sh script would run to completion and apache
jakarta tomcat would work properly
I wiped out hard drive, reinstalled wolverine, repeated above steps, and
got same results.
Then I wiped out hard drive, reinstalled RH7.0, repeated above steps, and
everything worked correctly.
Run a newer glibc (2.2.2-5), and set LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5.
Alternatively, install the i386 glibc package.
