Sounds like a problem with your JAVA_HOME or JRE_HOME setting.

On Ubuntu, I use:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun

What's your output from ./ run? Should see something like:

$ ./ run
Using GERONIMO_HOME:   /home/kevan/geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5-2.2
Using GERONIMO_TMPDIR: var/temp
Using JRE_HOME:        /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre
Booting Geronimo Kernel (in Java 1.6.0_16)...
Starting Geronimo Application Server v2.2
