tried removing 4.1.24 and reinstalling 4.0.6.It works fine then..What can be the problem???

I don't know 4.0.6, but please make sure that your JAVA_HOME is defined


should output a directory name.

Make sure it exists, and contains a JDK. I believe that a JRE is not enough.

If it is not set, you can do (on bash):

export JAVA_HOME=/right/path/to/your/j2sdk1.4/

And then you launch as usual.
