Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47877] New: startup.sh and catalina startup script does not run out of box.

           Summary: startup.sh and catalina startup script does not run
                    out of box.
           Product: Tomcat 6
           Version: 6.0.20
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Native:Packaging
        AssignedTo: dev@tomcat.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mike.pukuotukas@meska.info


Created an attachment (id=24295)
 --> (https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=24295)
 catalina.sh file that works on my system  (will not work on any other because
of the hardwired installation path).

The Linux startup scripts for starting Tomcat does not run out of books under
Fedora 10. startup.sh fails with the following message:

Cannot find ./catalina.sh
This file is needed to run this program

catalina.sh that is in the same folder and surely present, fails with the
following message:

The BASEDIR environment variable is not defined correctly
This environment variable is needed to run this program

Setting BASEDIR to the Tomcat installation directory does not help.

To get Tomcat running, I needed to use "rude force" approach, rewriting
catalina.sh with introduction of the absolute pathes to Tomcat and Java
installations of my system and fully removing the section about the BASEDIR. 

I think that likely the output of dirname is misinterpreted in the shell
scripts, expecting that it would output absolute path when it does not.

I attach the altered catalina.sh file that works on my system  (will not work
on any other because of the hardwired installation path).
