Subject Re: Cassandra won't start Java Issue Snow Leopard
Date Wed, 24 Nov 2010 18:17:42 GMT
For what it's worth, I had similar errors on a Windows 7 laptop with 0.7.0 beta 3.  Thought
something must be wrong with my classpath, but an installation of 0.6.8 worked fine.

I think it's just a classpath issue with os x.  I've had it do that for me as well, but it
runs just fine from IntelliJ IDEA.  I had thought my own system was just somehow messed up.
 I'll do some checking and try to respond to the thread again sometime today.

Then I guess it has something to do with the latest update of snow leopard, what's weird is
that If i run the cassandra_helper cassandra with the cassandra ruby gem it works, perhaps
it actually has something to do with Thrift

I get the same problem. I've re-installed a number of times with thrift and ensured all Java
versions correct.
Install on Ubuntu and Centos works fine from same download.
