Subject Re: Tomcat Installation on linux
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2002 15:23:16 GMT
Hi Randall,
Sorry, guess the way i typed was misleading, i typed just
"shutdown.sh" at command prompt.
The directory that I was in when I type in startup.sh or shutdown.sh is 
user/userName/jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4/bin>
The output i get on shutdown is --  Segmentation fault
