Nothing jumps out. 

Check /var/log/cassandra/output.log , that's where stdout and std err are directed. 

Check file permissions.

6.3 from the datastax site, without much success. Apparently it installs fine but starting
cassandra service does nothing(no ports are bound so opscenter/cli doesnt work). When I check
service's status, it shows "Cassandra dead but pid file exists". When I try launching Cassandra
from /usr/sbin, it throws "Error opening zip file or JAR manifest missing : /lib/jamm-0.2.5.jar"
and stop, so clearly that's why service isn't running.

and see if anybody else saw similar issue. I must point out that this is fresh machine with
fresh Cassandra installation so no conflicts with any previous installations are possible.
So anybody else came across something similar?
