According to my recent experience, permsize=256m is kind of small for 3.0, though the server could start, but it will fail during application deployment from admin console after.

FYI, the server will start fine with a 256m permgen. I think you could get by with ~ 170m or so...

JAVA_OPTS="-Xmx256m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError" ./geronimo run

should do it...
