The target runtime is Java 5. However, we'd certainly expect that  
Geronimo would run on Java 6.

I think we've seen this problem before... Oh yeah. It was a problem  
related to 

Double check your JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME setting. My guess is it's not  
pointing to your java 6 installation...

it looks like JRE_HOME is set to /usr/lib/java. However, you're  
running java out of /usr/lib/jdk1.6.0/jre

If that doesn't fix your problem, try running Geronimo as follows?  
It's not the recommended method for starting Geronimo, but I bet it  
will work...

     java -jar <geronimo-bin-directory>/server.jar

Alternatively, you could try:

     export JAVA_OPTS=-enableassertions run
