Subject Tomcat won't start : java.lang.OutOfMemoryError
Date Wed, 12 Sep 2001 11:23:55 GMT

I'm trying to start Tomcat and get the following error :

Exception during startup processing
java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError


I get this error with tomcat 3.3-b2 as well as tomcat-4.0-rc1.

My environment is :
Debian GNU Linux PowerPC
Kernel 2.4.4
JDK : Blackdown 1.3.0
Physical RAM : 386 MB

Note that Netbeans, JBuilder, Enhydra Entreprise (uses a modified Tomcat) 
and JBoss-tomcat all work well !

I guess it has something to do with the startup script or server 
configuration, but I didn't change anything from what I downloaded two days 

I tried to export TOMCAT_OPTS="-Xms128m -Xmx256m" and start, but with no 

Where should I look for ??? I'm lost and quite unskilled to be true (I'm 
trying to learn, nevertheless !)

Thanks in advance,
