Hi Bobby,
One user has reported successfully starting Geronimo 2.0.1 on JRE  
1.6.0_02_b05. I've also started our Tomcat assembly using 1.6 on Mac  

It's not clear how you are starting Geronimo (shell script or direct  
java invocation). I suspect you are invoking java directly. Your  
error implies that java.endorsed.dirs is not set properly. Geronimo  
shell scripts should always configure that property.

To run Geronimo using a shell script:

   export JAVA_HOME=/opt/java/sun/jdk1.6.0_02/
   ./bin/ run

To invoke java directly, try the following:

   java -Djava.endorsed.dirs=lib/endorsed -javaagent:bin/jpa.jar -jar
